Enjoy Authentic German Burgers At Picturesque Hans Im Glück

James Chan

Hans Im Glück

Hans Im Glück is a German Burger bar and a must visit for all you Instagram lovers because the place is so darn pretty! Following a consistent dreamy and foresty theme, they even went so far as to import their wood from Germany!

Located at the International Building, Hans Im Glück houses two areas. One for dining and the other for chugging them tasty cocktails (the bar). Both areas come with indoor and alfresco options.

The Food

The menu can be a little challenging for some (me included). Most of the items on the menu are German words and I had no inkling how to pronounce them. Stick to the good old “point and order”, you can’t go wrong there. That aside, even the menu is so pretty! It was designed like a fairy tale storybook that depicts the story of Hans and his eventful journey home.

At Hans Im Glück, on top of the usual Beef and Chicken Burgers, they have Vegan and Vegetarian Burgers too! These burgers come served from a choice of Sourdough Bun, Multigrain Bun or Naked (ironically this means it comes with no buns). Their buns are also produced by a local German Bakery by the way!

As for your sides, you can choose from Geleit (Mixed Salad), Krautknolle (German White Cabbage Salad), Fritten (Fries) or Susskartoffel-fritten (Sweet Potato Fries). I recommend the Krautknolle as it refreshes your palate with its sourness and makes every bite of your burger seem like a new one.

Beef and Mushroom Burger

You get the feeling that they’re all about enjoying food and also looking after your body. The Birkenwald is no exception with their Australian imported beef and contains 20% less fat than normal market standards. This is my favorite burger HANDS DOWN. You can never go wrong with beef and mushroom. Hans Im Glück ups their game by spreading that secret, slightly spicy, special sauce on the patty. I’m pretty sure there’s wasabi or mustard in there.

Chicken Breast And Bacon

I’ve always said that chicken breast is a hard meat to work with (literally). Just slightly overcooking it can make it dry and flaky. Fret not, the chicken here was tender and perfectly cooked. However, the bacon was just a tad dry. I don’t know about you but I can overlook the sinfulness of having bacon in my meal just because I ate this burger with the multigrain bun (and this is why I’m fat).

Spicy Patty With Aged Cheddar And Avocado Cream

This is a vegetarian burger and I’m honestly surprised at how much I liked it. The spicy patty is only slightly spicy so don’t get your hopes up spice lovers. But, it works really well with the secret sauce (they have it in ALL of their burgers). I especially loved the avocado cream. It was cool, refreshingly sour and very tasty.

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

You cannot find these German burgers ANYWHERE in Singapore. It’s a true German experience without having to leave the country! Hans Im Glück’s attention to detail is remarkable and burgers aside, they make some pretty great tasting cocktails too! Just remember to save yourself the embarrassment, point and order!

Till 5pm – Top up $5 for a hot/cold beverage and a side

From 5pm – Top up $15 for an alcoholic cocktail (yums) and a side

Audace Bar and Restaurant

James Chan

Audace Bar and Restaurant

Audace (pronounced Aw-daz) is a quaint little casual French restaurant in the heart of Little India. The Mbassadors had the privilege of whetting our palates at their restaurant most recently and we have but only good things to say about our experience.

Chef Jeremy Gillon helms the kitchen and he produces gastronomical creations that leaves diners in awe and wonder (us included). In a brief conversation I had with him, he mentioned that he changes the menu every couple of months to keep things fresh for his diners.

As you enter the restaurant from the get-go, you’ll notice an assortment of herbs (with names I literally cannot pronounce) lined up just above the kitchen service counter. Chef Jeremy actually visits France every now and then to forage for his own herbs! There are herbs that are reminiscent of prawn crackers and seaweed, there are some that taste like oats and there was even one that smelt like chamomile!

The Food

La Reine Des Pres

With Celtuce as the main ingredient in this dish, I did not know what to expect. (I’ve never had Celtuce in my life) Texture wise, it resembles that of an extremely tender asparagus and has a mildly sour after taste. I could eat it on its own for days even and not grow sick of it.

However, Chef Jeremy takes it to the next level with pickled onions, salted seaweed, a sweet syrup extracted from one of his herbs and a parsley garnish. This mash up of flavors produces a well-balanced and meticulously thought of dish that raises the expectations for the other dishes that follow after.

La Matricaire

The initial thoughts I had about this dish were with regards to how fresh the Mackerel was. There’s no denying its freshness. Any fresher and you’ll have to catch it yourself.

Then we delve a little deeper and look past the first layer of taste to find the spinach with its creamy notes and semi-mushy texture. The Matricaire oil at the base has a pleasant chamomile scent. Don’t worry about the green color, it’s just the chlorophyll from the spinach. I feel it adds another dimension of creaminess to the dish. Imagine all these flavors augmented by a dash of horseradish to give this dish an added “oomph” or complexity. Brilliant.

 

Cote De Veall

I think a moment of silence is necessary for the calf that contributed to this AMAZING main course.

.

Okay, moment’s over.

You can tell that Chef Jeremy places a lot of emphasis on respecting the dish and its ingredients. The meat was tender and cooked to perfection with each bite just bursting with flavor. Whilst I would once again say I could enjoy the veal just cooked as is, Chef Jeremy utilizes all his experience and expertise to provide a deeper and more meaningful way to appreciate the veal.

This dish is all about texture. There’s the Rutabaga which gives this dish an added crunch due to its raddish-like nature. Then there’s the caperberries that are strategically thrown in so that you get an occasional seedy and fruity bite.

You can be sure that you won’t leave Audace feeling like the portions were lacking because this main course is HUGE! For the price you’re paying, it’s just so much value!

James Highly Recommends Audace Bar and Restaurant

Yeap, you heard it right, I don’t often say this but this is a must-try. If you’re reading this, you’ve come so far, all you need to do is make a reservation and you won’t be let down! Bring a date, bring your parents, plan a proposal there or even throw a birthday party there. You’re in for a treat.

New Eats on the Block

Pei Xia Ang

As May draws to a close, we take a look at some of the new eats that have just launched and have impressed us.

1. Steamroom with The Pillar and Stones (SPRS)

new eats steam room with the pillar and stones

An artistic concept nestled in Orchard Central, SPRS fuses art, fine dining, and retail into a relaxed setting.

At The Pillar, taste an elegant twist to the classic Peruvian dish. The Japanese Hamachi Ceviche is made up of Japanese yellowtail cured with citrus juices served with puffed tapioca, pea shoots, and picked radish. Lightly drizzled with parsley oil, this appetiser is light on the flavour, leaving you wanting more.

In the Steamroom, sip brews at their optimum taste. Also, not forgetting the Stones, where you can appreciate artworks by aspiring artists.

2. LUKA

new eats LUKA

Headed by Chef Takashi, this is one of the few places in Singapore that you can get Italian pizza made in authentic pizza ovens.

new eats LUKA pizza

If you have never been much of a fan of pizza, yet curious to taste authentic pizza in Singapore, opt for the Margherita woodfire pizza.

This no-fills pizza is made up of mainly dough, tomato paste, basil, and cheese. As it is served, notice the blisters on the crust— a tell-tale sign that the pizza was made in a pizza oven. Additionally, as you sink your teeth into a slice, note the smoky aroma that is not present in pizzas made in regular ovens.

3. Audace

new eats audace

Audace, short for “audacity”, is an invitation to explore tastes and discover flavors that push boundaries. Helmed by Michelin star-awarded chef Jeremy Gillon, this bar/restaurant aims to serve sensational French bistro fare with a modern twist.

If you ask me, a dish that best represents this place is the cucumber ice cream basil. Served with Brittany sable, strawberry fruit bell pepper, and passion jus, this dessert is a mix of flavors that is unique and refreshing.

From experience, I found out that the best way to enjoy this dessert? Have a little bit of everything with the ice cream!

4. Summerlong

new eats summerlong

Located along Robertson Quay, this haunt is the perfect spot to unwind after a long day. Bask in the casual Mediterranean beach-vibe environment, as the staff serve dishes with fresh ingredients and new flavours.

Enhance your beach experience with their selection of seafood. Their oysters are a favourite, and they are going for $6 a piece, no minimum order required.

5. Nesuto

new eats nesuto

Meaning “nest” in Japanese, this themed patisserie café revolves around the concept of nests and the use of eggs. Offering Japanese- French inspired creations, the desserts are light in texture and are not too heavy on the stomach.

For you first visit, I recommend trying their Yuzu Raspberry Cake. With a pillowy and fluffy texture, this Japanese sponge cake combines the sweetness of fresh raspberry slices with yuzu to form the perfect afternoon treat.

These are the places that we have discovered this month. If we have missed anything out, do let us know in the comments below!
