Official description

Surrounded by a jungle of business towers and high rise condos is Chunky. From the outside it looks upscale yet modest in comparison to its neighbours. A step inside will reveal a cosy loft space with high ceilings and generous amounts of sunlight, creating an open ambience. The modest yet sophisticated interior makes it feel like you're stepping into someone's high-rise loft. There's plenty of seating and a prep kitchen ready to whip up drinks on the ground floor while a pleasant little loft for more intimate seating can be found up the staircase at the back of the restaurant.

Doorway to Gourmet

Chunky beef burger.

 

The Setting: Surrounded by a jungle of business towers and high rise condos is Chunky. From the outside it looks upscale yet modest in comparison to its neighbours. A step inside will reveal a cosy loft space with high ceilings and generous amounts of sunlight, creating an open ambience. The modest yet sophisticated interior makes it feel like you're stepping into someone's high-rise loft. There's plenty of seating and a prep kitchen ready to whip up drinks on the ground floor while a pleasant little loft for more intimate seating can be found up the staircase at the back of the restaurant.

 

The Menu

 

The engine behind its culinary creations is chef Top, a young and ambitious kitchen whizz with a degree in Business Management and Culinary Arts. He insists that the overall concept for Chunky is to provide a place for westerner expats to come in and feel at home, not just because of the atmosphere but by the way the food tastes too! All dishes come in pretty generous portions, hence the name Chunky. The goal is to make sure customers leave feeling full. Guru was no exception!

Chocolate truffle.

To start, chef Top served up the Holy cheeseburger (B380). This brunch style dish has a slice of Canadian ham and fried egg, in between two buttery brioche buns and it comes completely caked in a coating of thick cheese, the house salad and side of balsamic vinaigrette. Apart from the salad which was really fresh, every bite of this dish is packed with cheese. It's tasty, a must for cheese lovers; but if a big bite of breakfast meat is what you crave, you might have to look elsewhere on the menu.

The Classic spaghetti carbonara (B280) came out piping hot, and it smelled amazing. The carbonara sauce is what makes this dish special. It's rich, creamy and piled on. Parmesan cheese bacon bits and a strip of bacon are added on top. The bacon was juicy but nothing to write home about.

To cleanse the palate, go for the Lemon soda (B120). Totally refreshing and on a hot afternoon, it really hits the spot. It's sweet, but carries a strong lemony flavour, with just a touch of honey and a twist of cinnamon at the end of your sip. Imagine if Sprite had a rich and sophisticated cousin from the tropics.

Next up was the flagship dish! The Chunky beef burger (B370)! Made with a 150g Australian beef patty, this thing was an absolute monster. Stacked high with zingy home-made ketchup, sweet onions, tomatoes, lettuce and an amazing cream cheese paste, it is no wonder Chunky's motto is "more than just a burger". This thing was fat, juicy and delicious. The brioche bun was buttery and fresh. It really does taste like home. Served with a side of fresh hand cut fries, make sure to warm up your jaw muscles. Every bite is massive.

Lemon soda.

We closed this meal down with the Hot chocolate truffle (B130). Made with dark chocolate and whipped milk, it's extremely rich. The cacao comes in a glass, raw, then the light and airy milk is poured in, making it silky and smooth. Served with a shortbread cookie, it's a pleasant after-meal drink. Warning: if you love your chocolate sweet, this drink is not for you! Just stick to milk chocolate.

Insider's Tip

Keep a lookout for new menu items. Chunky cycles in new dishes monthly and, on top of that, don't be afraid to trust the chef. There are some delicious chef recommendations spread throughout the menu!

Value & Verdict

The pasta is delicious, but the burgers are where it's at. If you're willing to pay up for a real high quality burger, then Chunky S23 is the way to go. Once you take a bite, you'll understand. On top of those buttery brioche buns, that beef patty and all those fixings are something else. It really is more than just a burger. g
