GGB Bistro Bar & Cafe ('GGB'), is the F&B establishment owned by the same shareholder of Go Go Bambini. The idea is to provide a place for parents to relax while the kids having their activities in the kids playground next door and for children Birthday parties.
We actually find this place by accident. Looking for something different for lunch, we found this quiet cafe in the middle of Dempsey. From the parking lot, you will not notice that it has any relations with the Go Go Bambini, until you step into the indoor dining area. From here you can see the connecting door to the indoor playground. Even if you need to use the restroom, you need to go through indoor playground section.

For a quick meal, we both decided to go for burger. LD ordered the Mushroom Burger ($16.90), while I ordered Ultimate Pork Burger ($12.90).
While we are waiting for our burgers, we were served thick white bread, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Hmm, this is a positive sign. The appetizer seems sophisticated. The bread is thick and dense in texture, and it works well as a sponge to absorb the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. A good appetizer and looking forward for more to come.

It took about about 10 mins before the burger arrived. Served on a wooden plank, accompany with fries, it was jaw dropping awesome. Nice presentation, very tall and looks appetizing. The bread is crisp and not soggy. The portabello mushroom is thick and juicy. It has a nice flavour and the double fried fries is crispy, yet moist inside.
The pork burger is really the ultimate. You got two stack, where the bottom stack consist of bacon, pork patties, pull pork and cheese. Of course it will be better if you have pork belly, but where can you fit all of it. Each different type of pork has its own unique flavour and the presentation is superb. The top stack consist of tomatoes and fresh greens. This burger is even taller compare to the mushroom burger and I had a hard time holding it and even finishing it. Its gigantic.

Although it was a quiet afternoon, it was really hard to get the attention of the service staff. But not to worry, the design of the place allow you to do some self service. If you need anything, you can get it from the centre bench, including plates, napkins, ketchup, chilli sauce, water and others.

Overall, GGB Bistro is really a surprise find. While it is common for similar establishment to neglect the food, GGB Bistro excel in this area. The owner really did a good job to hire a great chef to come out with the menu in the bistro. Their burger is comparable to any specialised burger joint in Singapore. Kudos to them and I hope they keep it up. Cheers!
