Two Blur Guys
Two Blur Guys, located at level 1 of Orchid Hotel in Tanjong Pagar is a neat little burger joint that specialises in burgers, beers and pastries. The menu is not particularly extensive but succinct with six signature burger offerings within a price range of $9.50-$12.50. If you are dropping by for afternoon tea, you might want to check out their pies (savory and sweet), tarts and lamingtons which are all below $5.
The story behind their idiosyncratic name of Two Blur Guys stems from how the two owners (who are both guys) did not know anything about the food industry when they first started their business and were simply ‘blur’ about everything. But fueled with a deep passion for good food and the desire to share that with others, the concept of Two Blur Guys was born.
All burgers here are served with a mesclun salad drizzled in their special Balsamic mix and a homemade potato salad. And with their extremely talented consultant Chef Jimmy Chok of Bistro Soori having a hand in creating all the burger recipes, you know you will be in for a scrumptious treat here at Two Blur Guys.
We tried the Prime Beef w/ Portobello $16.50, an absolute steal as each individual Prime Beef and Portobello burger was $12.50 and $9.50 respectively. Two thick hearty slabs of portobello and beef topped with Gruyere cheese, sweet relish and truffle mayo sauce in between two wholemeal buns. This baby was an oozing burger of juicy goodness. My only gripe was not being able to detect any truffle in the mayo dressing which was a tad disappointing.
The Pulled Pork $11.50, another star item on their menu features succulent and extremely tender shredded pork which has been braised for over two hours in a special concocted sauce. The ingenuity of using mustard mayo sauce complimented the slight graininess and creaminess of the melted Gruyere cheese quite harmoniously, creating a balance of flavours that was noteworthy.
For a meatless option, go for the Smoked Salmon $9.50 topped with Two Blur Guys’ homemade avocado mix. An excellent way to get your fix of Omega-3 fatty acids and lower your cholesterol levels while still chomping down a great burger.
The Lemon Curd Tart $4.50 is a popular seller and we were lucky to get the last one! Pale yellow with a sourish tinge and a curd that flows when you cut through that crumbly pastry, this one is a smooth operator indeed.
Overall, Two Blur Guys is a great burger fix in the CBD area. The space only seats 24 and can be quite a squeeze especially when it is crowded but no one complains because good food is worth sacrificing some comfort for.
Now if only those burgers came with fries…
