Hans im Glück Singapore – forest in a city in Orchard Road

Hans im Glück Singapore - German Burgergrill

Hans im Glück creates a forest in a city (not in Forest City but right in the heart of Singapore’s Orchard Road). The German Burgergrill is named after the fairy tale “Hans in Luck” (or Hans im Glück in German) by the Grimm Brothers. Walk into Hans im Glück Singapore and you walk into a restaurant resembling a German forest with birch logs installed in the beautifully decorated space. Its thick menu, which looks like a fairy tale book, offers burgers for vegetarians, vegans and die-hard meat eaters.

Starker Tanjong Pagar Centre

Stärker Signature, Tanjong Pagar Centre is the latest outlet of the Starker Group. They seem to be sprouting outlets all over Singapore. As of today they have three Starker Bistro outlets, two Starker Signature and one each of Starker Music and Starker Q. It seems that the “Bistro” series have more food choices with “German signature roasts as well as popular international dishes” while the Q series at the other end “is a multi-concept bar that serves a variety of cuisines with a local touch at wallet-friendly prices“. The “Signature” outlet at Starker Tanjong Pagar is therefore something in the upper middle segment. What is common through the range is the fresh and fruity beer that Starker is known for.

We return to try items on its a la carte menu and it turned out to be quite a heavy but enjoyable lunch.
