Their set lunch menu and a la carte items are plastered at the front of the restaurant and over the cashier's desk making it easy to see exactly what each burger has in it. Their set lunch menu is not too bad and provides customers a range of different burgers (and one hot dog) to choose from. Some of the burgers were quite unusual (one burger boasts a mushroom patty instead of a traditional beef or chicken one) and there was quite a lot to take in.
After a couple of minutes, we decided to go with:
Classic cheeseburger set lunch. This included a drink and criss-cut fries (approx. $70)
Menchi burger set lunch which included a a drink and criss-cut fries as well (ingredients for the burger include cabbage, Menchi sauce, mustard, a pork fillet instead of a beef patty on a pumpkin bun) (approx $60)
I have to say that the criss-cut fries I had were probably the freshest I've ever had. They were cooked as we placed our orders and came to our table roasting hot. They were incredibly crunchy and were seasoned just right. I enjoyed them so much that I had to go and order another side of fries! They were that good.
The cheeseburger was also very tasty. If you've ever been to Mos Burger, the burgers in Freshness are quite similar in taste. Yet I found the burgers to be bigger and the serving size to be far more generous in Freshness. Once again, our burgers were served to us piping hot and, as the restaurant name says, fresh I also didn't have that guilty feeling I usually get after eating at places such as McDonald's and Burger King as the ingredients used in Freshness are a higher quality and more healthy.
My friend enjoyed the Menchi burger, although he did say that the Menchi sauce was a bit strange tasting as it tasted a bit like sweet and sour sauce. Apart from that, he was satisfied with his meal.
As for the atmosphere, it is tucked away in one of GCP's ground floor areas near one of the lifts to the carpark (and is ironically a five second walk to McDonald's!). It was quite quiet and peaceful, apart from the school kids who were there to have their burgers for lunch. The seating area is half indoors and half outside in the general vicinity of the mall which provides customers a choice between getting an even more peaceful atmosphere, or enjoying watching the small stream of people walk by. Either way, the ambience is a nice way to spend a lazy and quiet lunchtime.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to those who want to sample a different approach to traditional burgers and who want to try something new and slightly exotic. While it might appear to be a bit pricey, it is worth visiting at least once.
I will be going back to sample another burger in the near future
