Once upon a time, there was a hugeass burger.
It wasn’t just huge in girth; it was also so thick you had to use the word “cram” to describe putting it in your mouth.
Five friends shared the burger.
They had told the waiter: “Please get the chef to cut the burger into five.”
The waiter had laughed before saying: “I think you all can’t finish it.”
It was a hugeass burger surrounded by a hugeass pile of fries sitting on a hugeass plate.
It was bigger than a spread palm.
One-fifth of the burger was almost as big as a regular burger. Depending on where you buy your regular burger, that is.
But it was so juicy, so tasty, so carnivorously decadent.
It was just perfect.
The five friends managed to clean up the plate… with some difficulty, because the amount of fries was insane.
Plus the fact that they had also ordered soup and pizza to go with the burger.
They were all very very very very very full after the meal.
When the waiter came back to clear the table, he was very surprised by the amazing gluttony of these five friends.
An hour later, they went for coffee and dessert at a next-door cafe, after which they lived fully ever after.

The Empire State Burger can be found at Empire State @ #04-03 Iluma, Victoria Street.
It comes with a price tag of $29.90 but can feed four regular people comfortably (if you don’t order anything else).
The burger is more intimidating in life than it looks in the photo cos you can’t see the height from the photo, so don’t attempt to eat the burger by yourself unless your name is Paul Ong.
(If anyone wants to attempt a Paul Ong, let me know. I will come and document it. =P)
By the way, half the menu items at Empire State are never available, so be prepared to be annoyed, but the burger is definitely worth the annoyance!

Hmm… i think I shall do a “Paul Ong” by eating one by myself. Judging from the size of the palm, it’s not that big lah….
Haha… seriously, the patty is really thick, which you can’t see from the photo cos the fries are blocking it. But if you’re really going to attempt it, call me! ;)
who is paul ong?? i’ll eat the burger meat without the bread..
Click the link and see lah. Paul Ong is the guy who ate six Level 30 spicy buffalo wings all by himself. The wings are really huge, too. Bigger than the normal chicken wings you get.
@Sheylara: Thanks for the heads up:) Now that you’ve provided decent recon of the target, a visit to Empire State shall be planned. Hmm, maybe after fasting month…:)
Hey i think the size of the burger is about the size of a large turkish döner(kebap) here! Gosh, it sure looks delicious!!
RN: When is fasting month?
Stan: I think it’s more delicious than it looks. Too bad our booth was lit in red, so the photos all turned out weird. Haha.
I think I can do a “Paul Ong”. Maybe after ORD next month as a treat for myself. Haha ;)
August weather nowadays super hot lor.. drink more plain water ya :P
Wow. That’s really a HUGE burger! Hmmm Is it too much for 2 person?
Girard: Great! Let me know when. I’ll come and watch… and film it! Haha.
lh / terence: Huh?
Kris: I think 2 people sharing the burger is a bit too much, even if you don’t touch the fries. 3 people possible, but you’ll be super full. The last time the guys shared among 4 people and couldn’t even finish the fries.
what meat is it? It looks delicious.
It’s beef. And it’s really juicy! We ordered the medium doneness.
Why got paparazzi take picture of me sleeping.
This has been around so many times I hesitate to do it again…
@Sheylara: Fasting month begins this coming 22 Aug, but it doesn’t matter anymore. I just checked out Empire State and realised I can’t eat there:(
eek, I can’t eat beef :( Any idea if they have other types of meat?
I think i may be able to squeeze into my mouth and my stomach…if i really went there…lolx
i will like to try with some other ppl
