What do you think about Best Burgers in Singapore?

Pictured: Nickeldime Alley

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 over 3 months 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, weeding away the fast food restaurants as well as pruning off the high-end gourmet burgers. The entries all range from $15-$20.

THE BRIGHTSIDE

The Brightside

Named after the Monty Python song "Always Look on The Bright Side of Life". It's a little bit silly, but let's face it, life can be jolly rotten some times, so we say bugger it, let your hair down and come laugh. Feeling fancy? Quality spirits and mixer for only $12 nett! which includes; Tanqueray Gin, Ketel One, Sailor Jerry, Monkey Shoulder, The Brooklyn Brewery Craft Lager and all cocktails. The Brightside is pretty famous for beers which start from as little as $6 when you buy a bucket of Carlsberg or $15.75 nett for two full pints of Asahi Super Dry or Connors Stout. $8 drinks before 8pm Monday to Saturdayincludes; Asahi, Stout, House Pour Red & White Wine/ Prosecco, House pour Aperol Spritz & Pimms But best of all their burgers rock.

MY AWESOME CAFE

My Awesome Burger

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. Sitting at one of the high tables in the five foot way is a great way to relax and watch the world go by in that little corner of Singapore. Try an awesome burger with French Brioche. There are three to choose from. French Duck Confit, Peppered Roast Beef or the delicious Chicken & Bacon burger. You will not be disappointed. Review Here

NICKELDIME ALLEY RIVER VALLEY

Nickeldime

Nickeldime Alley is a favourite neighbourhood spot in River Valley, offering top quality food to be enjoyed with top quality craft beers. Australian Cheif Executive Chef Tim Ashwood offers comfort pub food introducing the classic N.D Beef Burger which consists of 18 hand ground beef, housemade pickles, onion jam, crispy bacon, cheese, chipotle aioli & N.D Garlic fries. Also dig into the Mac & Cheese, Confit Duck Waffle, Croque Madame and an awesome Cheese Waffle drenched in Maple Syrup. With 16 International craft beers on tap, Nickeldime introduces Heart of Darkness Brewery from Saigon and Byron Bay Australia's prized Stone & Wood. Review Here

Rumours Holland Village

Rumours Holland Village

Rumours Grilled Cheese Burger is a jewel. The burger is made up of a homemade patty grilled to perfection, topped with bacon, cheddar cheese and crispy Old Dutch cheese, and served with fat chips. Rumours Bar & Grill is set to make its mark on Singapore’s competitive food and beverage scene with its undeniable value for entertainment with its week-round live band performances and live DJ on weekends, and a delicious menu by award-winning Chef Noor Azman. Review Here

Mo & Jo Sourdough Burgers

Mo & Jo Sourdough Burgers

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 OYSTER BAR AND CHOP HO

Blue Label Burger Lukes

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

FATBOY’S THE BURGER BAR

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. The swiss shroom burger, in particular, makes us go weak in the knees. Lunch-time specials make this one an affordable stop if you’re craving a drippy-delicious-burger. Review Here

P.S.- The shakes are incredible too!

Hard Rock Cafe Singapore

Hard Rock Cafe

Just like the artists whose memorabilia lines the walls at Hard Rock locations worldwide, the burgers served at Hard Rock Cafe are nothing short of “legendary.” All Legendary©Burgers feature the highest quality meat, fresh ingredients, savory sauces and rich, melted cheese. Legendary© Burgers are served with lettuce, tomato and paired with the ultimate sidekick – Hard Rock’s Savory Artisan french fries. Each french fry selection is paired with a complementary signature dipping sauce. Guests in select regions can choose from Hard Rock’s classic seasoned french fries or additional new offerings, including Garlic Fries with Garlic Aioli and Spiced Curry Fries with Tandoori mayonnaise**  Review Here

Huber’s Butchery and Bistro

Hubers

Known for high-quality meats, Huber’s at Dempsey also has a lovely bistro that opens up for lunch. The burger is possibly the best in the city, owing largely to the pure Australian 100% beef patty cooked to perfection. Topped with caramelized onions and bacon, this one is a winner.  Review Here

THREE BUNS AT POTATO HEAD SINGAPORE 

Potato Head Singapore

Here's one for the books. Fun Boy Three (pictured) is a decadent concoction of Black Angus beef, roasted portobello mushroom, smoked applewood cheddar, garlic and miso butter, with a splash of truffle aioli. Three Buns also bakes its brioche buns in-house and uses prime grass-fed lamb and beef from Australia in these awesome patties. Housed in one of the most iconic buildings on Keong Saik Road, Potato Head Singapore is a dynamic destination offers four venues within one building. Review Here

THE HANGAR

The Hangar

Probably the craziest place in Singapore, The Hangar on Arab Street is a Melbourne-inspired coffee shop, bar, restaurant and live music venue all rolled into one. The beef burger is outstanding and can as easily be paired with a mug of beer as with one of their exceptional coffees. They even have a 1-for-1 offer on burgers every Tuesday. Review Here

Working Title

working title

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

Roadhouse

RoadHouse

If an American-style diner is more your scene, you will love Roadhouse on Dempsey Hill. With a menu that ranges from fish burgers to pulled pork and ofcourse classic beef (with an option of wagyu), this is perfect for a family outing where everyone wants something different. They also have a great kids menu and serve some seriously addictive fries.Review Here

Two Blur Guys

two blur guys

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

13% Gastro Wine @Aliwal

13 percent

A wine bar on Aliwal Street, 13% Gastro Wine offers their 13% burger and it is a pleasant surprise. With juicy beef patties, gherkins, melted cheese and tomato slices nestled within a brioche, the burger is a hit. If you love seafood, you will enjoy the Crispy Crab Burger too, which features breaded blue crab. Review Here

These are the ones that rocked our world, but there are a couple of other places that made it to the shortlist. Burger Joint is quite the rage in New York and its Singapore outpost is usually quite crowded as well. We loved the hidden-away vibe behind red velvet curtains, but the burger patty felt a tad under-seasoned. WOLF Burgers in Suntec City is also quite popular, especially for a pit stop when shopping in the area.

I do like “free the robot” but also for me “25 degrees” and “Two Blur Guys” for amazing burgers and more

You missed out one! The Ranch by Astons sells one of the greatest burgers here in Singpaore...

Hi non member. Firstly to justify your claim you would need to become a member and write a review concerning the Burger you have mentioned. We would then need to send someone from the Singapore team for a Burger tasting and then, and only then will The Ranch Burger be considered one of the best. They are known to be a new outstanding steakhouse but we have had no feedback concerning their burger. Secondly, If you took a picture of the Burger please send it to us at [email protected] for our reference and we can get the ball rolling on reviewing ourselves.
Ok got it, will do so ASAP. Thank you for your professional reply!

Hello, I do agree for some I tested such as Huber and Roadhouse but I totally disagree with Working Title which was great back in 2017 and 2016 but the last time I went in January 2018, the meat was disgusting and we waited more than 1 hour. I was really embarrassed for my friends as I told them it was one of the best burgers in Singapore. Not anymore! Thanks Eric
