Besides the colloquial use of the letter “K” in its name as well as the bulgogi element in some of its burger options, there’s not much Korean about Kraze. It’s cheerfully lit and decorated like an old American diner—all wooden furniture, wall-mounted cushioned seats and green hanging lamps—really nice to seek solace in after work. Don’t let the fact that it’s located in the grande dame of shopping malls—the Marina Bay Sands—deter you.
Try one of their signature burgers, the KG Burger ($14) to start—it’s got all the works: The choice of a regular or wheat bun, pickled cucumber slices, heaps of lettuce, slices of tomato, enoki mushrooms in a sweet soy marinate and of course, a succulent bulgogi beef patty. The minute you bite into the burger, you know it’s in a class of its own. The veggies are crisp and very fresh, the meat’s juicy and succulent, and the buns nicely crisp on the outside with a soft (and sweet) middle.
The Mega Bite ($16) we had was just as satisfying as the KG Burger, if not more so—two huge slices of beef in this one, topped with a layer of cheese and sandwiched between flavorful wheat buns. Burgers also come with a small side of creamed corn and kidney beans—you can’t get healthier than that.
We recommend ordering the wheat bun for your KG burger; the sweet white bun is overkill when eaten with the already sweet bulgogi. Don’t forget to order the lightly-spiced chili cheese fries ($8) for a little sin in your din.
Despite having made it known that each order would take an average of 10 minutes to prepare, our food still came pretty quickly despite there being a rather full house when we were there. Certainly makes for a worthwhile and very affordable alternative if you’d rather not fork out several big ones just for dinner at MBS.
