20th June 2023

The Bank is a new burger bar hidden behind an ATM in Tanjong Pagar

Walk along Craig Road and you’ll spot a curious-looking ATM on the first floor of the row of shophouses. This ATM doesn’t belong to any financial institution, but to The Bank, a burger joint and bar that quietly soft-launched just last month.

Run by the same peeps behindĀ the now-defunct Burger Joint in Amoy Street, The Bank has a small menu of good old American burgers, with decadent milkshakes and a curated selection of 12 craft beers on tap.

Slide open the ATM, and you’ll step into a neon-lit diner that transports you right back into an 80s American diner, complete with a playlist and decor to match.

the bank - milkshakes

Start the meal with some of their milkshakes, made with only Haagen-Dazs ice cream and milk. Don’t count your calories hereā€”just sit back and enjoy one of their classic flavours, such asĀ Vanilla, Chocolate,Ā Strawberry, orĀ Oreo. Each is priced at $12++, or otherwise, you can add Reese’s peanut butter cups to any with a top-up of $2++.

the bank - chicken burger

Our undeniable favourite was theĀ Chicken Burger ($18++), which comes with a huge, whole buttermilk-fried chicken leg, battered in a house-made herb blend.

Topped with melted American cheese, you get to choose between house-made Spicy Coleslaw or crispy Bacon with savoury Herb Aioliā€”also house-madeā€”to accompany the chonky fried chicken leg. If you’re feeling hungry, consider going for aĀ Double ($26++), which seesĀ two whole chicken patties in the brioche bun.

the bank - signature cheeseburger

Then, there’sĀ Signature CheeseburgerĀ (from $18.80++), featuring a patty or two of hand-butchered, house-ground, and pressed 100% Angus beef. These patties are made right in The Bank’s kitchen daily, so they’re as fresh as you get.

These thick patties are similarly dressed with melted American cheese, as well as lettuce, tomato slices, onions, and a house-made mayo-based sauce, with gherkins on the side.

the bank - spicy bacon cheese fries

You can’t have burgers without fries, and at The Bank, you can orderĀ Cheese Fries ($11++) orĀ Spicy Bacon Cheesefries ($14++), for skinny French fries lightly melted over with cheddar.

This basket of carbs comes with jalapeno slices, and is drizzled with sriracha and mayonnaise, then topped generously with crisp bacon bits.

Just a few doors down from The Bank is Hvala, a vegan matcha specialty cafe with warabi mochi and more! For more burgers, check out BlackGoat near Mountbatten, whose fried chicken burger we loved.
