7. Loveable Lentil Coquette Burger at Real Food, Raffles Place
Lentil Crouquette burger (13.80 SGD) . . . The husband had this.. It comes with 2 side options - this was with sweet potato wedges and raw salad (to balance it out of course) . . . Burger was good.. Did not expect the lentil croquette to come out so thick.. But it was pretty flavourful.. Crispy on the outside! The sides were a little disappointing though - 3 wedges! That's it :/ . . . Have heard good things about their beetroot burger! Will definitely try that before deciding to re-order burgers here or not! . . . #realfood #fareastsquare #singapore #burpple #burpplesg
This hearty veggie burger is jam-packed with lentils and comes with a raw salad and sweet potato wedges. Real Food's burgers are surprisingly dense and is cooked perfectly crispy on the outside to provide that satisfying texture with every delicious mouthful.
