Marmalade Pantry @ ION Orchard

The story today. Momo and Dino was meeting up for dinner for the ladies catch up session and I gatecrashed. They have been saying the food's here so nice that I was yearning to try it!

The ladies opted for the healthy stuff in the menu.

Momo had the "Chopped Grilled Vegetable Salad". $21

My fork seemed to have grown legs and walked over to this plate and I tried some.
It consisted of grilled vegetables with butternut, eggplant, asparagus, sweet corn, peppers and mesclun. Very good mix and it tasted rather good.

Dino had something that was light too. She had the Miso Tofu with vegetable tempura. $18.
Looks nice doesn't it?

For me, I needed meat. I had The Marmalade Burger with roast tomato chudney. $24.
I requested it to be "medium done" for doneness.

It might look simple, but it taste rather good. The patty was really moist inside. The mango chudney (hidden below the upper bun) went really well with the burger.

I was watching an episode of Chef At Home and chef Michael Smith was preparing burgers. He said something that I remembered. He said when we are grilling patties, we should never press patty when we are cooking it, the juices will all flow out and you won't get juicy in the inside burgers.

I have a feeling the kitchen at Marmalade Pantry did not press it too. It looks nicely grilled, but inside it was juicy. I should have taken a photo of the inside. I grabbed the burger and ate it with my hands, so I did not want to hold my camera anymore. ;-)

Had a really pleasant meal with the ladies.

The Marmalade Burger looks a little dry. But you mentioned that its moist, guess it retains its juices. I should give this a try then.

Anon 2,
It looks dry, but when you bite it it was good. I ate it by holding the whole burger in my hands. Hope it suits your taste. :-)
