Two Blur Guys

C says:

Two Blur Guys is an unassuming little burger joint at Orchid Hotel in Tanjong Pagar. According to their website, the said guys decided to open the place when they felt that there was a lack of places in Singapore serving good burgers, pastries and beer for take-out. Apparently the burgers on the menu were conceived with the help of their friend, chef Jimmy Chok. 

A had been hankering to come here for ages, after hearing good reviews from his friends. After a few thwarted attempts when they were closed by the time we arrived, we finally succeeded on Good Friday. We ordered the Prime Beef Burger and the Duck Rillette Burger to share.

The Prime Beef Burger, at $12.50, was decent. The standard one comes with gruyere cheese, the Prime with Portobello mushroom is $16.50, and you can add bacon for an additional $4. The burger was quite nicely done (we asked for medium rare), though maybe a bit lacking in beefy flavour.

The Duck Rillette one ($10.50) was much better. It wasn’t so much a burger, as a duck rillette sandwich, with the rillette in the shape of a patty, and between burger buns. This made it a bit hard to cut/eat, since any pressure applied would just squish the rillette out the sides of the burger, but besides the mess, it was very very tasty.
The basic burgers aren’t huge, so it’s probably better if you don’t come starving.

Considering the hype over the burger here, the reglar beef burger was rather disappointing. The price is decent but the portion is small (by atetoomuch standards). The duck rillette burger however was awesome. Especially considering the price. I'll definitely be back for that.
