Having seen pictures of Ramen Burgers from Little Hiro, we decided to make a trip down to try out the latest dish in food fashion.
When we finally reached, it turned out that Little Hiro was in fact a reincarnation of Burger Shack, which was a favourite lunch spot for my poly clique.
The menu largely remains the same as Burger Shack, with rice plates, burgers and pasta, with the exception of some new items for each category.
(Chicken Karage Shio Ramen Burger)
Not forgetting the point of this return visit, I ordered a Chicken Karage Shio Ramen Burger. The burger buns were replaced with ramen patties for this burger, which we found a bit alkaline-tasting though chewy and nicely grilled. The Karage Chicken was crispy, but the fried chicken seemed to have a thick batter. Egg Mayo sits in between, which was refreshing. Upgrading it to a set, you would get canned drinks and garlic fries at an additional cost. The garlic fries was crispy and flavourful, pretty much like what Burger Shack used to serve.
(Sanzoku Double Hamburg Steak Teppanyaki Rice Plate)
Two of my dining partners followed my recommendation by ordering the Sanzoku Double Hamburg Steak Teppanyaki Rice Plate. It comes with two beef patties which was not gamey and smothered in flavourful black pepper sauce. The Garlic Butter Rice was fragrant as well.
(Flame-seared Teriyaki Salmon Teppanyaki Rice Plate)
We could not say the same about the Flame-seared Teriyaki Salmon. While it was flaky and well-grilled with a crispy skin, the Teriyaki sauce was extremely thick and salty.
(Flame-grilled BBQ Chicken)
Flame-grilled BBQ Chicken brought back much nostalgia, which was cajun-spiced and all familiar to what had been served in Burger Shack. Definitely something with the same great taste that we will never mind ordering again.
Burger Shack was somewhere we loved due to the food quality and consistency. With the branding change, we were glad to find that the same still applied to Little Hiro. This is definitely a place we will not mind visiting again; not just for the nostalgia, but also for the great food.
