Yet another burger brand has emerged to give us alternative burgers beyond the fast food variety. This time it’s by newly launched delivery-only brand called Anonymous Smok Burger.
The mysterious brand truly lives up to its name as not much information is available online. The word ‘anonymous’ could also allude to their dishes that are prepared in “ghost” kitchens, hidden commercial spaces closed to the public.
Smoked, not grilled, burgers
What we do know from our desktop research is that the burger brand employs a smoking method to cook their meat patties, as opposed to the traditional grilling over direct heat.
When cooked properly, smoked foods are extremely tender, juicy, and flavourful. The smoking process also imparts a unique smoky and authentic tasting flavour profile to the food.
The only other place that specialises in smoked meats is ASAP & Co at North Bridge Road, and if our experience at that restaurant is anything to go by, we think that all meats should be smoked!
In the mean time, here’s a look at what’s in Anonymous Smok Burgers’ menu:
Burgers from S$10.80
At the time of writing, Anonymous Smok Burgers only has four burgers in the menu, perhaps to test demand first.
If you enjoy chicken burgers or just want to dip your toes into the world of smoked meat, try their Smok Chicken Peri Peri Burger (S$10.80), a well-smoked, juicy 100% chicken thigh patty stacked between coleslaw and in-house peri peri sauce.
Beef fans may want to go for their Argentinian Brisket Burger (S$13.80) that contains tender brisket that has been smoked for 8 hours, and then doused in a signature BBQ sauce.
The Salmon Teriyaki Burger (S$17.80) features a 200g Norwegian Salmon smoked fillet drizzled with teriyaki sauce, smothered between pineapple slices and veggies.
Looking for a meat-less option? Consider getting the Portobello Burger (S$13.80) that is made of portobello mushroom nestled between an in-house sauce, halloumi cheese and coleslaw.
Sides and drinks
Every burger needs a sidekick, so pair your burgers with a choice of sides such as the Chilli Fries (S$5.90), Truffle Fries (S$5.90) and Smok Corn on Cob (S$5.90).
Interestingly, there isn’t any Coke or Sprite on their drinks menu. There are, however, unconventional drinks like Cold Brew Biscoff Latte (S$6) and Cold Brew Valrhona Chocolate (S$7) to go along with your burger feast.
No combo sets
Overall, while prices are not steep per se, the items are only available ala carte for now so you might need more than one burger to fill you up, judging by its size.
We would have liked to see value combo meals to convince us to take the jump and hit that checkout button, especially since we can’t have too many guests at home these days.
But hey, who knows what these anonymous folks would do next? We’re certainly keeping our eyes peeled.
