How does one make a good burger?
For me, it’s all about the juicy meat patty, without any veggies on top of it. One that I can find easily now in the new burger joint in town, Flip Burger (@flipburger_id)!
I was lucky enough to be invited to the soft opening of Flip Burger, starting their mark in the busy area of Senopati, Jakarta-Indonesia. Why Flip? Because it’s how we usually cook the meat patty, by flipping it in the pan.
It’s located a couple of buildings from Anomali Coffe and right in front of Caribou Coffee. If you’re familiar with Senopati area, you’ll find this place easily. Just find the big logo in the front of their place.
The place is owned by good friends of mine who also have their fair share in steak joints. So, a good meat is totally something you can expect in here. They went out of their way to make sure that the meat patty is still juicy when we eat it. Even the bun itself is freshly made everyday, and believe me it’s not the ordinary bun you can buy anywhere. 🙂
I ordered a cheese burger and my friend ordered a beef burger. Both burgers were awesome, and they came with fries already! The meat was super juicy even until the last bite. When you eat it, the juice just broke down in your mouth, it’s super tasty! They also put caramelized onions on top of the meat patty, which gave you a bit sweet flavor for balance. The cheese, well.. the cheese melted perfectly. XD
Also, as side dish, we ordered.. wait for it…. crispy chicken skin! Yes you heard that right. It’s FREAKIN CRISPY CHICKEN SKINS! Gosh.. It couldn’t get any better than this.
And well, they have another winner burger.. FISH BURGER! Yes. It’s the one we’ve all been craving for. A good fish burger with home-made mayo. I didn’t order this at first since we already ordered cheese and beef burger, so I ordered delivery using the online ojek service when they have opened for public just to try the fish burger. They serve the fish like what you usually have for fish and chips. A deep-fried fish with crispy batter, but in a brioche bun with oh-so-good mayo on it. Really love it!
Also, if you want to add something like pickle, more onions, more cheese, more bacon, or even more patty, just ask them. They can do it for you with extra cost. 🙂
But hey, what goes really well with a good burger? A self-service drink refill counter!! I was wrong, this just get better and better! Sorry, I’m such a sucker for places with free drink refill counter. 😛 *too excited*
So, if you’re a huge burger fan just like me, this place is totally worth your visit(s). It’s flippin’ good! A simple straight forward burger, no veggies needed here. Duh. 😎
Maybe I’ll see you there? 🙂
