25 Degrees – Cheesy Mac Attack and Hollywood A-List Burgers [MEDIA INVITE]

Cheesy Mac Attack Burger

25 Degrees is a Gourmet American burger joint, originated from Los Angeles. It has been endorsed by A-List celebrities as their go-to burger joint. 25 Degrees is brought to Singapore by R&B Lab, a dedicated restaurants and bar management company headed by Michelin-Starred Chef Sylvain Royer. The same company that operates Ginett Singapore (Full review of Ginett Singapore available here).

25 Degrees

Following the success of Cheesy Mac Attack last year, the 25 Degrees team decided to bring back this burger for a limited time only. Available until 31 August 2019, the Cheesy Mac Attack ($18) is made from with US Angus beef patty, paired with a traditional thousand island dressing, topped with smoked bacon, caramelized onions, fresh arugula, melted cheese and nacho cheese.

Cheesy Mac Attack Burger - The Burger

The signature of this burger is definitely the pair two superb mac ‘n’ cheese buns. The mac and cheese buns are crispy externally, filled with al-dente macaroni and loaded with nacho cheese. The patty is juicy and succulent, while the rest of the ingredients made this burger packs with creamy and cheese flavour.

It is best eaten with a fork and knife, but if you like a finger-licking good experience, just dive right in. One of the most unique burgers that I ever tried. Yummy!!

Sides and Snacks 

While Cheesy Mac Attack is only available for a limited time. 25 Degrees regular burgers are endorsed by Hollywood A-List.

NUMBER ONE Burger ($14). This signature burger deserves the mantle as #1. In between the signature soft and fluffy buns are 200g USA Angus beef patty, creamy crescenza and gorgonzola cheese, strips of smoky bacon, caramelized onion, arugula and thousand island sauce.

The patty is juicy, succulent with solid MOO MOO flavour, while the cheese and thousand islands sauce add to the creaminess and umami flavour of the patties. The caramelized onion adds the delicate sweet flavour; while the bacon and arugula provided the salty and bitter taste that balances the burger nicely. Yummy!!

NUMBER THREE Burger ($14). For those who like their burger or food spicy with a bit of Tex-Mex flair. It uses the award-winning Monterey Jack cheese topped with jalapenos and spicy chipotle sauce. The mashed avocado did a little to dampen the fiery nature of the jalapenos as the spiciness just explodes between the bites.

NUMBER THREE - The Burger

BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN BURGER ($14) – Chicken thigh, fresh tomatoes, lettuce, pickled daikon and spicy miso bbq. It looks like Japanese fusion burger, however, it simply taste like spicy boneless buffalo wings burger, without the crispiness of the fried chicken skin.

For the Sides and Snacks, we sample a few items:
25 DEGREES WINGS ($8). Deep-fried wings, curly fries and tossed in sambal. Crispy, crunchy with a touch of local flavours. Addictive indeed.

25 DEGREES WINGS

FILTHY FRIES ($8). Double fried fries, caramelised onions, cheese and topped with bacon gravy.  The fries are crispy externally and moist internally, the cheese is rich while the caramelised onion adds to the sweetness to this dish. I don’t think the sweet and cheese works well together, I feel overwhelmed with this combination. I’ll stick to normal fries next time.

ONION RING ($5). LD has been having onion rings craving for the past few days. Luckily, the version at 25 degrees is superb. Crunchy externally, followed with a sweet and moist texture of the onion. Must order for onion rings lover.

The Hollywood burger experience will not be complete without the milkshakes. We tried CLASSIC MILKSHAKE CHOCOLATE ($10) and CHIPSTER SHAKE ($12). The chocolate classic milkshake has a solid chocolate flavour, without the overpowering richness. While the Chipster Shake tasted like salted caramel topped with crispy chips. You might want to finish the chips first before it gets soggy.

The décor is classic with Hollywood charm. The place is cosy, comfortable, yet chic and glamorous at the same time.

Hollywood charm - Part of Dining Area

Overall, 25 Degrees is an exciting burger destination. Cheesy Mac Attack is a great version of combination of a Mac ‘n’ Cheese with a burger. Meanwhile, the rest of Hollywood A-List endorsed menu come close to the Diners menu in America. Of course, 25 Degrees uses a higher quality ingredient. Don’t forget the Cheesy Mac Attack only available until 31 August 2019. Cheers!!
