Burger lovers, this review is like a match made in Burger Heaven for you guys. A new burger joint in Alila Hotel Jakarta has just opened and sparked my interest. Especially with both father-son Michelin star chefs behind it: Jean-Gorges and Cedric Vongerichten. They’re also the geniuses behind Vong Kitchen, the next door fine dining. I visited Le Burger with curiousity, excitement and a big question. What can a gourmet burger place possibly offer other than,well.. a burger. One thing for sure, the restaurant offers friendly, fresh athmosphere. It isn’t too big but both outdoor and indoor seating are comfy. The service here is very fast and informative too.
Truffle Burger (IDR 130.000/single): Beef Burger with 1 patty, Brie cheese, fragrant truffle oil and fries included. As first bite the burger is very much tasted like a famous American burger. The potato based burger buns were so soft, light and more like Brioche. I love the quality of the meat and how well they cooked it. It’s a bit bland but worked well with the salty Brie cheese.
Shrimp Burger (IDR 150.000): Shrimp burger with Cilantro and green chili sauce. The shrimp patty was strong in flavor. Love it!
Chicken Burger (IDR 110.000): Fried Chicken burger with Chipotle Mayonnaise and Togarashi. The chicken was nicely seasoned. Crispy and spicy too.
Cheesecake Milkshake (IDR 100.000): Beautifully presented, this milkshake has distinct flavor of cheesecake, even has bits and pieces of it in the drink. Delicious but a bit too heavy for me.
Apple Cobbler (IDR 120.000): Apple Cobbler with Cinnamon ice cream. Real apple pieces, apple crumbles. Yummy Cinnamon icecream on top.
Banana Pudding (IDR 90.000): Custard like banana pudding with bread and crumbles.
My impression of Le Burger is quite pricey, but great quality food. I love the burgers and would come back for more.
