The menu at Asusual is full of unforgettable mains to cater to different tastes. The Truffle Cheesy Wagyu Beef Burger (S$25) is a must-try— this stunning burger is filled with a thick and juicy Wagyu patty, a runny sunny-side up, truffle mayo, smoked cheese, caramelised onions and yuzu pickled cucumbers, served with a side of mixed salad and fries. Every bite of this burger was pure bliss, and the huge portions justified the price well.
