Fans of homegrown burger brand Omakase Burger who live in Toa Payoh can now get their fill of burgers and fries without travelling to Orchard Road. The brand has opened a pop-up stall, Omakase Burger Express, at a coffeeshop at Toa Payoh Lorong 8. Here’s the best part — prices are up to 20 per cent cheaper than at the Wisma Atria outlet, according to the brand.
An Omakase cheeseburger set, which comes with fries, costs $14.90 at Toa Payoh, whilst at Wisma Atria, the set comes with fries and a drink, and costs $19.90.
For the truffle fries, a regular portion costs $3.90 at Toa Payoh and $6.90 at Wisma Atria.
As to be expected, the Express outlet has fewer options than the main outlet. However, this is only for the sides and drinks.
Burgers wise, all topping options that you can find at Wisma, you’ll be able to get at Toa Payoh. These include applewood smoked bacon, sauteed mushrooms and onions, and the option of changing to an Impossible patty. The chicken sandwich can also be found at the Express pop-up.
The other thing that you can save on? Delivery fees. Omakase Burger Express will do deliveries within Toa Payoh, or specifically, 3km from the shop location. And it costs just $5 with a minimum order of $30, with free delivery for orders above $80.
The catch though is that the regular, or rather, Wisma Atria outlet pricing applies for delivery orders. That said, it’s still cheaper than the $12 to $20 delivery fee that the main outlet charges, so you’ll still save a little.
So to make the most out of the Express savings, it’s best to head down to the Toa Payoh outlet in person. And you’ll only have till the end of September to do so — it is a limited-time pop-up after all.
Not staying anywhere near Toa Payoh? The brand says there are expansion plans on the horizon as they are excited to “be able to bring our burgers closer to your homes”. Who knows, an Omakase outlet might just open up in your neighbourhood.
