Three Buns Burgers & Cocktails at Potato Head, Singapore


What exactly is Potato Head Singapore? We have seen the name on the distinctive wedge-shaped building in the centre of Keong Saik Road that we passed by many times. We had been curious about what it is like inside this building. We finally had a meal at the Three Buns Burgers & Cocktails by the Potato Head folks recently.

According to the Three Buns Burgers & Cocktails website, “Three Buns is a culturally lead, creative space with a restaurant at the core offering gourmet burgers and crafted cocktails, redefining the burger joint …”. It has outlets in Jakarta and Singapore with “established plans for Bali, Tokyo, Seoul, and Hong Kong“. In Singapore, Three Buns currently have two outlets – at Keong Saik and a newly opened one at Quayside, Roberson Quay.

It appears that Potato Head is a Bali organisation with overseas operations in Singapore and Hong Kong. According to the website, “… Potato Head, Keong Saik is spread over four floors. This was the first international outpost of Potato Head and is currently home to a branch of Three Buns Burgers & Cocktails, Studio 1939 cocktail bar…”.

The ground floor and second level are occupied by Three Buns Burgers & Cocktails. The ground floor is a self-service outlet. The second level part is air-conditioned and is more interesting and comfortable. The Studio 1939 cocktail bar is located on the third level and rooftop.

The decor at Three Buns Burgers is certainly unique and unconventional. We are not fond of the hanging figures and skulls, but the overall feel was generally bright and colourful.

The areas with sofa and armchairs are nice zones for hanging out.

Burger Hotdog & Wings

We had a selection of three items from the menu – a Truffle Hound hotdog ($15), a Smoking’ B-Boy burger ($23) and a Classic House BBQ Wings ($16).

The burger lived up to the high expectations that had.  Made with a 150g Black Angus beef patty and topped with streaky bacon and onions, it was a juicy, tasty burger. The meat and bacon were charred to create a greasy and smokey flavour. Probably not something we should eat too often but very delicious.

The hotdog was nice but not as outstanding as the burger. We like the subtle and not over-powering truffle flavour.

Three pieces of chicken wings for $16 made it an expensive dish.  They were covered with a sweetish, tangy and spicy coating which was still quite spicy despite being a “less spicy” version. Not bad but we thought the flavours were too strong.

Desserts at Three Buns

The two desserts that we had were light and pleasant.

Mr Cobblepot ($8, above), was a blueberry muffin with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. There were a lot of blueberries in the muffin which had a nice texture.

The Rich Chocolate ($6, above) was a small cup of extremely thick and heavy chocolate pudding. It has no looks to speak of but chocolate lovers will be happy with it.

The long black coffee was weak and rather expensive at $6 each. Service at the Three Buns Burgers & Cocktail was friendly and welcoming.
