Mr & Mrs Fox


mr-mrs-fox-burger-plateMr & Mrs Fox, an interestingly different dining concept restaurant, presents various experiences based on the floor level. The upstairs is for dining reservations while downstairs is more casual as they serve the lunch menu. The place also turns into a bar in the evening to enjoy drinks. The downstairs has a very rustic feel with modern elements such as an open ceiling and the use of a combination of steel benches with the wooden ones. You can choose to sit at a regular table, the bar or the high tables. It’s definitely worth coming here to enjoy the ambiance.

It comes served on an oval black coloured plate accompanied with hand cut spiced fries, which I actually did not swap for a salad surprisingly. There was a “well done” sign on my burger, which I thought was pretty clever, given that is how I requested my meat to be.

The meat was actually not well done at all since I could still see a lot of pink. But it came in a nice fluffy buttery black sesame seed bun along with caramelized onions, lettuce, pickled chilies and some hints of house smoked bacon. There was a lot of BBQ sauce and it essentially overpowered the whole taste of the burger with the odd piece of bacon at times. This is probably the reason why I didn’t really notice how my meat was cooked. It was also very messy to eat and falling apart. I had to use my knife and fork in the end.
