Best burgers in Singapore
1. One Fattened Calf
From baking its own potato buns to making its signature sauce, everything is prepared from scratch at One Fattened Calf. These folks even take the time to grind their New Zealand grass-fed beef to make juicy, tender patties. Don’t walk away without trying the OFC GoldBurger that comes with house-special pulled beef brisket or the OFC ButterBurger that’s a decadent treat with – you guessed it – a slab of butter that melts all over your burger. And can we just talk about those cheese fries? They’re the bomb!
One Fattened Calf, #01-31, Galaxis, 1 Fusionopolis Place, Singapore 138522
2. Burnt Ends
For all you carnivores, Burnt Ends is an unpretentious treat for the senses. Expect a mouth-watering barrage of delightful meats cooked in scorching ovens (that can go up to a crazy temp of 700+ degrees). The pulled pork burger is a legendary creation, with umami flavours coming through the moment you sink your teeth into the pillowy brioche bun.
Burnt Ends, #01-02, 7 Dempsey Road, Singapore 249671
3. Wildfire Burgers
Ready to get down and dirty with the juiciest burgers in town? Hit up Wildfire for a treat that’s worth all the calories. The truffled mushroom burger tops USDA-certified black angus beef with truffle mayo, mushrooms and caramelised onions, while the wagyu cheeseburger is a decadent version of the classic. Going for lean meat? Try the sriracha chicken burger for a smoky, spicy bite. Or get the grilled portobello creation layered with feta, zucchini and semi-dried tomato.
Wildfire Burgers, multiple locations including Keppel Road and Bencoolen Street
4. Db Bistro & Oyster Bar
Db Bistro’s chart-topper is the Original db Burger (available for brunch). It’s not for every budget (this one rings in at $55), but just take a look at the ingredients. Filled with short ribs and foie gras, it promises a good burger punch!
Db Bistro & Oyster Bar, #B1-48, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Galleria Level, 2 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018972
5. Project Burgs
Great burgers at even better prices? We love the sound of that. Project Burgs dishes out mean ol’ burgers in spades at incredibly pocket-friendly prices. Think juicy beef patties between soft buns and coated in melty cheese. For variety, grab fried wings or a box of chicken nuggets to share.
Project Burgs, multiple locations including VivoCity and 313@Somerset
6. Burger Frites
This Joo Chiat establishment serves a mean burger with some crispy homemade double-fried fries. Opened by the same minds behind the Braseiro steakhouse, they clearly take their meat seriously. Btw, you can’t make reservations here so if you’re looking to feast on juicy burgers, be sure to arrive earlier for a table.
Burger Frites, 340 Joo Chiat Road, Singapore 427592
7. Wolf Burger
Wholesome gourmet burgers at value-for-money prices await you at Wolf Burger. Even the fussiest eaters can find something to love here, with varieties like beef, chicken, and fish options available for the choosing. If you’re stuck, don’t fret – give the Original Wolf a try. The freshly ground beef patty is slathered in secret Wolf sauce and sandwiched between buttery brioche buns.
Wolf Burger, #01-117, Hall 5, Timbre+ Eastside, 1 Expo Drive, Singapore 486150
8. 25 Degrees Burger, Wine, & Liquor Bar
Know the precise temperature difference between a raw and well-done burger patty? The answer is in the name of this Los Angeles export that promises authentic American-style burgers done just right. Psst: we hear these folks are a hit with Hollywood A-listers!
25 Degrees Burger, Wine & Liquor Bar, Hotel G Singapore, 200 Middle Road, Singapore 188980
9. Skirt & Dirt
Looking for quality burgers at pocket-friendly prices? Head down to Skirt & Dirt. It may be located in a hawker centre, but don’t look down on this burger joint because its humble burgers are not to be underestimated. We love the cheese skirt burger which comes with a thin layer of crisp cheese that packs a sharp flavour.
Skirt & Dirt, #02-66, Tiong Bahru Food Centre, 30 Seng Poh Road, Singapore 16889
10. Two Blur Guys
This hole-in-the-wall joint doesn’t look like much from the outside. But step inside to try the burgers and you’ll be impressed. An ultimate comfort food choice? The pulled pork. But if you want something a little fancier, go for the foie gras. Its spicy fried chicken burger isn’t too shabby either.
Two Blur Guys, 387 Jalan Besar, Singapore 209002
11. Shake Shack
Think tender beef patties, fresh lettuce and vibrant slices of tomato stacked inside a pillowy soft potato bun. If you’re looking for flavour and consistency, Shake Shack is the place to be. Enjoy your burger with a side of oozy crinkle cut cheese fries and wash it all down with a giant cup of Shackmeister ale. You can even snap some Instagram-worthy pictures with your friends in front of murals painted by local artists at each of the Shake Shack restaurants.
Shake Shack, multiple locations including Neil Road and Jewel Changi
Few do classic American-style burgers as well as OverEasy. All of the beef burgers come with juicy wagyu chuck blend patties served on super soft, potato buns. Our top pick? The irresistible truffle burger, which features Swiss cheese, mushroom and truffle mayo.
OverEasy, #01-06, One Fullerton, 1 Fullerton Road, Singapore 049213
13. Potato Head Singapore
It’s a four-in-one concept at this Keong Saik spot. For gastronomically good burgers, head straight to Three Buns, which is split between the first and second floors. The Baby Huey (Tasmanian vintage beef patty with cheese, pickles and spiced mayo) is pure gold. So is the Truff Ryder (beef patty with pan-seared foie gras, truffled onion marmalade and cheese, ketchup and miso mayo). Three Buns also has an outlet at Robertson Quay if you fancy riverside views.
Potato Head Singapore, 36 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089143
14. The Market Grill & Wine 90
This Telok Ayer fave is known for its live lobsters and steaks, but it serves a mean burger for that long lunch. Go for the Bleu Cheese: a juicy Angus beef patty loaded with melted cheese, bacon and onion marmalade. It hits all the right spots with its combo of salty-sweet goodness. Maybe it’s heart-attack-inducing stuff, but we say it’s worth every damn bite.
The Market Grill & Wine 90, 208 Telok Ayer Street, Singapore 068642
15. Hans Im Gluck
At Hans Im Gluck you can expect hefty burgers with a German twist. Not a fan of the classic beef patty? No problem – take your pick from tender chicken breast or a myriad of vegetarian and vegan options. Get sides like a mixed salad with Asian dressing, or thick cut fries to go along with it.
Hans Im Gluck, multiple locations including Boat Quay and VivoCity
16. Armoury Steak & Craft Beer
This gastropub’s decor is a mix of modern and classical, referencing its history as a British military armoury. Another thing that’s traditional in this joint? Its passion for good ol’ burgers. Dig into the eponymous Armoury burger, stacked with a wagyu patty, bacon, cheese and caramelised onions. It’s so good, you might just weep tears of joy.
Armoury Steak & Craft Beer, #01-01, South Beach Quarter, 36 Beach Road, Singapore 189766
17. Fatboy’s The Burger Bar
We love ourselves a good ol’ American-style burger and Fatboy’s really hits the spot with staples like the classic cheeseburger and oddities like The Elvis (a bacon-stuffed pork patty with grilled bananas and peanut butter). Though definitely a burger place, the chicken mac and cheese and the fried chicken waffle sandwich are no slouches in the taste department either.
Fatboy’s The Burger Bar, multiple locations including Upper Thomson Road and Prinsep Street
A guilt-free burger that doesn’t contain any meat? Sign us up, pronto! VeganBurg is all about promoting a plant-based diet and dispelling the belief that fast food equals junk food. Choose from options like the Smoky BBQ (plant-protein patty served with onion rings and barbecue sauce) and the Shrooms Burg (fried portobello patty with dairy-free cream sauce and caramelised onions).
VeganBurg, 44 Jalan Eunos, Singapore 419502
19. Tiga Roti
Brought to you by Three Buns chef Adam Penney, Tiga Roti serves up bangin’ halal-friendly burgers. Tuck into creations like Plug Three, Truff It Up and We Be Ballin’, which feature exquisite grass-fed, free-range Argentinian beef patties. Oh, and don’t forget to pair ‘em with stellar sides. Our pick? Fuhhhhh Fires – potato dippers generously topped with spiced bearnaise beef chilli, fried shallots and pickled chilli. Spice lovers, we dare you to try the Ghost Face Thrilla hot sauce packed with a ghost pepper punch.
Tiga Roti, available online
