Tuckshop Cafe – 178 Paya Lebar Road, Singapore


I had to write about this place where I had lunch today. It was a really horrible experience. Please note that this is not related to The Tuckshop located at Guillemard Road (which I’ve yet to visit).

I ordered the Cheeseburger ($12.50+) and a latte ($4.90+) and the burger came around 15 mins later. The menu stated handmade burgers so I wanted to try how good it was. see my comments below:

Lunch crowd... they are actually a furniture company...

Latte, really? It was seriously bland and obviously not trained to prepare such coffees. I rather drink the coffeeshop ones...

The first cheese burger that came... I was looking for the cheese... I took a bite, didn't suspect anything, then took another, then smelt the burger, I smell sour. Obviously the burger patty is not fresh. So I returned it, the chef promised me he'll make another fresh one for me.

The second burger came... Same sour smell and no beef aroma and taste. Look at the colour, it's probably soaked in the water to be defrosted or frozen for the longest time. To be fair, the buns were nicely toasted, so I ate the buns. The oil that was used to fry the fries, need to change... Reused oil smell...

I left the cafe with this second piece of patty on my plate... Hope they got the hint...

Not gonna do any rating. For $12.50+ I could have eaten 3 Big Mac’s which taste a lot better even though pink slime. How difficult is it to prepare a handmade burger? It’s so easy as long as your ingredients are fresh! I make them all the time!

I felt the chef wanted to test if I’m complaining for the sake of complaining by serving the same batch of overdue beef patty. I guess me leaving the beef patty behind told him not to mess with the customers ever again and respect the customers who are paying so much for your food. Tsk!
