I actually like &Made, more for the service and location than the food per se. Friendly service is always a plus and being right smack in the middle of Orchard Road means an alternative dining option when we’re in town and don’t feel like doing Jap (which is very seldom, haha).
Since this is a gourmet burger joint, they ordered the burgers (didn’t hear any praises so I reckon those were so-so) while I went for the toastoo, i.e. an interesting sandwich-like crepe. Like said friends with their burgers, I didn’t think very highly of it since it’s pretty “normal”—the word that a foodie hates, cuz I can’t describe it any other way. Portion was petite, which means room for desserts! Dark chocolate sundae is the only choice when the person sharing it with me is a die-hard chocolate fan so that’s what we had. Again, nothing fantastic but that’s what we get for picking a safe choice!
Ratatouille toastoo ($14++): mixed vegetables, tapenade and Raciette cheese wrapped in buckwheat crepe.
Top left, anti-clockwise:
The 3 little pigs ($23++): bacon, pork and chorizo patty, shitake mushrooms, Japanese cabbage, yuzu-kosho mayonnaise;
The ‘B’ burger ($19++): dry-aged beef, onion confit, caper and garlic sauce, Comte cheese;
DD ($22++): duck leg confit, red cabbage pickles, green apple and pepper lime mayonnaise.
Dark chocolate sundae ($12++): soft ice cream, Chantilly cream, dark chocolate sauce, chocolate pearls and crumble.
