Hailing from Bali, Potato Head Folk took over the iconic facade of the Tong Ah building a year back in 2014. The restaurant occupies all 3 stories with the rooftop converted into an al-fresco bar.
The main dining area is on the 1st and 2nd floor, while the rooftop terrace that turns into an open bar at night.
The main focus here on its menu are its burgers, and really, only the burgers. Do note that prices do not include any sides and are just for the burger alone. That isn't inclusive yet of gst and service, so it may come across a little pricey.
"Baby Huey" with Naughty Fries
The "Baby Huey" is described as containing a prime 150g beef patty with pickles, spiced mayo and notorious house-created 'T.O.M' sauce.

Our side order of Naughty Fries, which has been hailed as a must-order, had a satisfying beef chilli drenched over thick cut chips.

'Chicken Rice Burger' (National Day Special 2015)

As for the Hainanese Chicken Rice burger, the chicken patty possessed the aromatic garlicky-ginger fragrance that we are familiar with in chicken rice. Paired with the house-made chilli, it really tasted as chicken rice would be in burger form.

Potato Head Folk delivered overall with decent quality in its burgers and sides, as well as a distinctive style in its seasoned patty and sauces combination. Going by the burgers we tried, it seems to be a reliable go-to for burgers. Three Buns? I will likely come back for more - when the hole in my pocket is stitched.
