Who doesn’t love a juicy burger? A thick patty encased within sesame buns that don’t fall apart, with crunchy toppings of your choice and sauces to give it that oomph.
There are few things as satisfying as biting into a heavenly burger. But with an array of options, ranging from gourmet to fast-food, how does one find the perfect burger in the city? We conducted a burger-hunt to search for the best of the best and found a few that leave behind the rest. To maintain a level playing field, we kept the hunt within mid-range joints to high-end gourmet burger cafes, weeding away the fast food restaurants. The entries all range from $15-$35++

A favourite cafe for many in Singapore. Packed to the rafters day and night from 7am. My Awesome Cafe is a unique place with a historic setting, and quality food and service.

This is the latest burger to hit town. 180g Beef pattie with house made sourdough bread! This is the latest project by Baker and Cook and Plank pizza. The buns, gherkins, mayo are all made in house! The beef pattie is pressed on a hot plate to develop a nice crust. The main difference is the sourdough buns. They are not the usual soft and squishy buns and have a bit of structure. The burgers start at $17 and are quite big. It’s a good hearty burger for those who like their bread to be more rustic. Worth checking out if you are around the area or if you are a burger fan. They also have a NZ style burger with beetroot as well as other proteins like chicken, veggie and grilled barramundi. Review Here
Luke’s offers a mean burger, but in all fairness, it is only available in limited quantities each day. The Blue Label Burger is made up of a tender beef patty, onions, delicious pickles, tomato and lettuce all rolled up in a Luke's special sauce and held together by a fluffy, home-made bread roll. We suggest adding on extra ingredient or two such as cured bacon, perfectly fried egg or cheddar cheese. Review Here
A chain with multiple outlets across the island, Fatboy’s The Burger Bar is known for sinful burgers. The burgers are loaded and juicy, with options like chicken, beef or pork.

While we’re on Arab Street, Working Title Burger Bar deserves a mention. This interestingly-named café sits below a hostel run by the same people and is frequented by backpackers and locals alike. The hipster vibe makes it a fun place to work out of or just drop in for a bite. Speaking of which, their Baconator is a killer halal certified beef burger topped with turkey bacon and melting Swiss cheese. The lunch deal gives you a drink free with your order. Review Here
You wouldn’t be blamed for missing this tiny space in the Tanjong Pagar area but that would be a loss of magnificent proportions. Serving only burgers, Two Blur Guys reflects the passion of its owners in the quality of the meat used. We love the Prime Beef with Streaky Bacon burger, especially when paired with a bottle from their selection of craft beers. They serve their burgers with potato wedges and a green salad and the truffle mayonnaise used in the burger is made inhouse. Review Here
