THREE BUNS

I was invited to the gathering that was held by UPH's International Law Moot Court Competition, well mostly because I'm their de facto member even though I never join any of the moot court competition. It was held at night, so me and some of my friends decided to go to another place first before we go to Marche at Plaza Senayan. Me, Roselyn, Jevon, Andrew, and Patrick agreed to go to Three Buns first. We're going to try the new and hip burger joint. Three Buns is like the new hippest place to try and heard they have a real good burger.

Three Buns was located in Senopati, near Cacaote and across Publico. The place was indoor but not as breezy cool as the other restaurant, because it's quite a semi-outdoor I would say. It's quite hot in the afternoon though. The place's concept was interesting and good. Love the setting. So, we have to put our order first in the minivan right near the entrance and we will be given a queue number, then we just need to see the number board for our food. If our food is ready, our number will be lighten up.

I was really hungry so I decided to order the biggest burger, Four Floors. While my other friends ordered Baby Huey. As mine is the biggest burger, it's also the most expensive one, which costs Rp 125.000 prior to tax and service charge. While Baby Huey costs Rp 95.000 also prior to tax and service charge, if I'm not mistaken, sorry.

Basically, Four Floors consists of double prime 100g beef patties, double cheese, triple onions, lettuce, pickles, ketchup and den miso mayo. I asked them to not give me the pickles, because I don't like pickles. While Baby Huey consists of prime 150g beef patty, cheese, lettuce, ketchup, pickles and spiced mayo. We ordered their famous Naughty Fries as well and it costs Rp 45.000. Naughty Fries consists of spiced bĂ©arnaise, beef chilli, crisp shallots, parmesan, and sesame seeds. As for the drink, I opted to Iced Green Tea which costs Rp 30.000

Once my order was up, I went to the counter to pick it up. Indeed, Four Floors is really big. It was quite messy when I was eating that burger. I don't think it's that pricey, it is expensive but the size of it was quite worth the money and not to forget generous cheese and dressing and etc. Also double huge patties. Maybe it was a little bit too expensive. I'm not really sure whether Baby Huey was overpriced or not because I didn't eat that but I think it is a little bit overpriced as well. Speaking overpriced, the thing that was most overpriced in here was their Iced Green Tea. It's a very small cup, only able to refill it once and it costs Rp 30.000! Ridiculous. I feel like throwing that cup over the counter. If it's a regular glass, I'm okay with it. But this is a small plastic cup that people usually use when they have an outdoor event at their home, the one you can buy from the supermarket. Ugh.

Moving on to its taste and texture. I will mainly reviewing their Four Floors. First bite impression, it was huge. Well, the taste was good but not extremely rich or as much as I've expected considering lots of people said this is the best burger (blah). However, I came across some people said that Three Buns was okay. Overrated. Well, I guess I have to agree with the latter.

I was waiting for that burst of flavour but none until the last bite. It's not literally not good at all. It is good, but with this price and its hype, I was expecting more. The patties were bland though. Love the onions, however. Disappointed.

As for the Naughty Fries. Hmm, what's so extremely good about this? All I can taste chili fries only. Same with the burger, no burst of flavour or that impeccable taste.

Overall, it is overrated and a bit overpriced. If they can improve the taste, it will not be overrated anymore. I had fun as well with my friends, lots of laughter and stories shared, not to forget lots of picture taken as well. Here are some of the pictures I've taken with my friends.

After we filled our tummy, we made our way to our next destination which is Plaza Senayan to attend the gathering. It was great and after the gathering, I went to Eric Kayser for a small dessert. I chose their chocolate lava cake, and it sucked. No chocolate lava, it was really dry. Ugh. Bad.
