This is not my first time trying out gourmet burger in coffee shop. The first encounter was with De Burg years ago and it did not manage to amaze me then, the quality of their burger did not quite justify the premium price charged. I was a bit skeptical when i gotta know about this Ministry Burger at $13.90 but i still made an effort to travel to Dover Crescent to satisfy my curiousity.
It was a Saturday evening, the coffee shop was rather crowded at that time with quite a few people waited right in front of this stall to order. I decided to go with their Ministry Burger that came with 1 side dish and 500 grams of Pork Ribs ($22.90) with 2 side dishes. When done with order and payment, a pager was given. I waited for about 15 minutes before it buzzed.
The Ministry Burger did not disappoint. The patty tasted handmade, it was firmed but juicy with a desired softness. It was served with a whole chunk of fried onions with a slice of cheese together fresh tasting sliced tomato and lettuce with BBQ sauce. The pasta salad that came with it did not taste too special.
I would definitely come back for the burger, this is definitely one of the best burger in town and definitely value for money.
Even though it has indicated this to be 'Best Rib in Town' on their signboard but i could not quite agree. The taste was good but not spectacular, the texture was nicely done but a little tough at the edges. The taste of BBQ sauce was slightly too mild. The Potato Salad and Coleslaw that served along went with the main did not left an impression.
