If you are craving for an authentic American Burger, you can surely turn to Blue Frog 蓝蛙. A colleague within my member recommended me this restaurant in my first trip as she said her American’s friends love it. I didn’t bother. At my subsequent trip, 2 other colleagues recommended them and highly recommended them for their Sweet Potato Fries. As such, I felt I need to check them out personally to confirm.
There was an outlet within walking distance from the hotel where I was staying, Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong. I thought it might be a good chance to dine there due to the proximity.
Nothing fantastic about its interior. Warm lighting with functional tables and seats. A pity the cushion seats was far too low, in turn the table was too high for someone short like me. With such ergonomics, this in turn make dinning not too comfortable.
Browsing through the menu, I see mainly burgers and steaks. There were some Chicken dishes as well so for the non-beef eater, there are some option.
Started my meal with the Frog Caesar Salad 蓝蛙特色凯撒沙拉 (RMB 58 – small). Available in small and big portion. The lettuce were fresh, chicken were dry and I find the caesar dressing too little.
Black Pepper Wagyu Burger 黑椒和牛汉堡 (RMB 108) was my main. Patty though juicy but the minced meat was a little too coarse for my preference. The beef patty was rare, as such some might not quite enjoy it. Appealing melted cheese on the patty was an attractive point while burger bun was fluffy. Overall was decent.
I topped up for the sweet potato fries as it comes with French Fries. It was truly delicious. It is with my stamp of approval.
Most disappointing of them all is the dessert, Green Tea & Honey Bean Cake 绿茶红密豆蛋糕 (RMB 42). The cake was dense and dry with lightly matcha flavour and was pretty sweet partly contributed by the cake and partly by the Azuki beans, I think.
Iced Tea was decent.
Me too highly recommend the Sweet Potato Fries at Blue Frog. Since one is there, might as well order the slightly average burger too.
