The local offshoot of popular London burger and cocktail joint serves up huge burgers and fun cocktails in a raucous space
The local offshoot of popular London burger and cocktail restaurant MeatLiquor, this place opens in June and serves both London and exclusive-to- Singapore creations. Expect dishes like buffalo wings and chili dogs from the London menu, as well as new Singaporean creations like Cajun-spiced soft shell crab and sambal fries topped with onions and a fried egg. The burger menu is similar to London, with trays of Dead Hippie burgers with mustard-fried beef patties, a special sauce and pickles; as well as the buffalo chicken burger made with a deep-fried chicken fillet, hot pepper sauce and red onions. Not forgetting the cocktails: there are tons of Singapore-only creations like the Duxton Fizz ($25) with vodka, pear, lemon juice and strawberry; the Charrito Negro ($23) with mezcal, cola and vanilla salt; and the Gibsin Martini ($22), a stirred gin-based drink with dry vermouth and pickles.
The buzz: A popular London burger and cocktail joint opens its doors in the hip Duxton Road, taking over the space formerly occupied by Life is Beautiful.
The vibe: The space is now grungy-cool: technicolored murals, neon signs and heavy wooden tables scrawled with faux-poetic quotes, all to a soundtrack of old school hip hop and electro funk.
The food: It’s great, messy drunk food, with most burgers under $20. Get the buffalo chicken cheeseburger ($19) stuffed with a deep-fried chicken fillet, cheese and red onions, or our fave, the Dead Hippie ($22), their take on a Big Mac. Sides include sambal fries ($10) slathered in a house sauce and topped with fried egg and crispy shallots; buffalo wings ($15); and a crispy soft shell crab ($14) with Cajun spices.
The drinks: The tropical-themed libations pack an alcoholic kick. The cocktail list comprises Singapore exclusives and London hits like the Duxton Fizz ($25) with vodka, pear and strawberry, and the super potent House Grog Slushy ($24), a mix of rums, spirits and fruits.
Why you’ll be back: Cheap burgers, great drinks, amazing atmosphere that’s open until late night. Enough said.
