This restaurant has one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had, but it's not really a veggie burger at all - more of a glorified cheese burger
Food is nice but bit pricey. They had this sundown promotion which there should be 50% for the burgers. We only realised that we did not get the promotion when we checked the bill later on. Personally, $20+ for a burger is kind of expensive.
Potato Head Folk is the best place for burgers in Singapore. It is the great place to indulge in comfort food: burgers, fries, coleslaw, milkshakes. We've been back several times and are never disappointed! When a friend came to visit from out of town and said she "felt like a good burger" we knew just where to take her!
Potato Head Folk opened with three weeks ago with a bang. In tow, it's brought six hefty burgers ($20-$29) and a whole lotta character. The four-level corner shophouse holds forty persons each, from level two onwards. The rooftop is set to open this weekend, but the rest are in full swing already. We sunk our teeth into the Four Levels burger ($28), a dripping mass of double prime patties (100g each), double cheese, triple onions, lettuce, pickles, and in-house made sauces (all are, here) - tomato (T.O.M) and miso mayonnaise. The burger patty and bread recipes are from chef Adam Penney (formerly at @pattyandbun), but due to tight kitchen space, they've been given to suppliers to put togethe
Went to Potato head folks last Saturday with some girlfriends. The burgers were not bad but were slightly on the pricey side. The decor for the place were interesting and I must say, Instagram friendly. There were 3 staffs on the second floor while we were there. Towards the end of the dinner, one of the staff (Filipino, I didn't get his name) came to ask and said "Are you aware that there is a table of 7 coming?". What puts me and my friends off was the way he said it. In our defence, why should we be aware that a table of 7 is coming? Bear in mind that we were not informed before he approached us. We would not have mind if this was informed to us upfront, or if it were asked in a more polite manner. We had reservations for the potato head folks rooftop bar initially. But decided to cancel the reservation and move the drinking somewhere else. What also surprised me is that when the staff from potato head folks contacted me to confirm the reservation, they were aware that I have a back to back reservation planned (Dinner at the restaurant first, then drinks at the bar after). Sadly, it seems like this was not communicate to the staff on the floor. Go to Potato Head Folks for the ambience. They serve decent food. But don't expect good service.
Very helpful staffs on the ground! The ambiance is very cosy and the decors are on point. It brings out the old in a hipster way which would attract both the old and young crowd. The food we ordered - baby huey burger, naughty fries and wings, were delicious. The meat patty of the burger is so juicy i almost wanted to order another round. The fries, were cut to resemble like a potato chip, which is something new from the good old shoe string cut. A very refreshing way to represent fries. The wings were a little spicy for me but still yummy to the palate. Overall, a very nice place to go. I would revisit the place again to try the other yummilicious food.
The burgers at Potato Head Folk are best in Singapore in my opinion. Their selection of side dishes is as extensive as their selection of burgers. They do comfort food very well. Their desserts are good and the funky atmosphere makes it a great casual place to have dinner with friends. We will return!
The burger was excellent - lived up to all expectations I had after hearing great things about the burgers at Potato Head Folk. Only thing I would say (and this is me being picky) is that the service could be a little bit more attentive. Lots of wait staff walking around but not looking so we had to wave a fair bit a couple of times. Other than that, great experience and will definitely come back!
I had a great experience at potato head folk last night. The ambience was good, it has a very rustic feel and the music goes well with it, the whole atmosphere was great! I ordered the huey burger, the wings and the naughty fries. The food was really good, the beef was really juicy and not overly cooked, and it's seasoned perfectly, perfect execution overall for all three dishes. I really enjoyed myself and would definitely come back with a few more friends. The only reason why I didn't give it a 6 was because the price was pretty steep, they should probably come up with some dinner set or some promotion. Overall, it was a great experience!
