... which equals to comfort food. Really, what's better than eating burger & fried chicken with a side of ice cold beer in these days' silly weather?
Barangaroo Reserve is a relatively new place-to-be nowadays, with multiple restaurants, cafes, and dessert spots. Plus, the transparent ball pool. Have you been there?
With too many options to choose from, the guy & I chose the two I was most keen on, starting on Ume Burger.

It was a warm summer day, so what's better than to start the day with an icy cold Asahi and a sweet, very tasty umeshu.

Their signature is the Ume Burger - with a soft and slightly sweet bun and juicy patty. Even juicier with that luscious wagyu mince sauce.

Pork katsu caught my attention right away, and it did not disappoint. Menchi burger ha da crunchy & succulent pork katsu, with an interesting tang of the mustard. I would probably like more sauce, but generally a great burger.

This was the reason why we did not get fries from Ume Burger: fried chicken.
How could we miss Belle's Hot Chicken?
Still as good as I remembered: perfectly crispy batter, juicy meat, coated thoroughly with that lip-burning hot sauce. Cannot. Stop. Eating.

What's next to try?
I can't really give a rating as it is not exactly a restaurant setting - and we only tried 1 or 2 items from each.
