Where to Find the Juiciest Burgers in Singapore
by: The Beat Asia
Burgers may not be the first thing that comes to mind when talking about Singapore cuisine, but the Lion City offers a myriad of options for your late-night craving for American’s most favorite junk food. While some would argue that the secret is in the grease, burgers of today have been reinvented to lessen the guilt while maintaining the flavors on every bite. From vegan and grass-fed beef to plain and brioche buns, here’s where you can grab the best burgers in Singapore.
This “butcher” uses plant-based patties in their guilt-free burger. Love Handle’s version of the classic Double Cheeseburger is made of Smashed Impossible patty, drizzled with special sauce, flecked with plant-based cheddar, pickles and caramelized onions, and sandwiched between fluffy buns. This S$21 order comes with fries.
Other crowd favourites are Mushroom Swiss (S$19), Pulled Rendang Burger (S$16), and Hot Tindle Burger (S$18). They also sell raw “meats,” which are made of mushrooms, breadcrumbs, and other alternatives to your usual protein sources.

Since coming to Singapore, this burger franchise has been a favourite go-to of those looking for a juicy patty-and-bun combo. Their multiple branches in Singapore have maintained the vibe of an American diner, offering large servings that will surely satiate any meat lover’s cravings. If you’re extra hungry, go for their Quad XXXXL, a stack of four patties topped with lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard, relish, onions, and pickles. The a la carte version costs S$21.50, but if you want fries and cola, prepare to fork out S$27. Fatburger also welcomes add-ons (cheese, egg, beef bacon, chili, or onion rings) for S$1 each.
Skirt and Dirt
If you’re looking for tasty yet wallet-friendly burgers, go to Skirt and Dirt. Their Cheese Skirt Burger for S$8 and Big Bad Wolf Pork Burger for S$6 are highly recommended, packing a punch of flavours at an affordable price. As a healthier alternative, you can go for their Fish Crisp With Tropical Salsa for S$6. For sides, they offer fries, salad, onion rings, buffalo wings, and chicken nuggets, with prices ranging from S$1.60 to S$5.

Another burger joint that originated in the U.S., Five Guys is known for their tender patties stacked together and paired with freshly baked toasted buns. They have hamburgers, cheeseburgers, bacon burgers, and bacon-cheeseburgers, with options for single or dual patties each. Be sure to order Five Guys’ signature fries, which are crispy on the outside but soft on the inside.

On a mission to “chang[e] the world, one burger at a time,” VeganBurg uses GMO-free, plant-based protein in their patties. One of their best-sellers is the Avocado Beetroot Burger (S$13.90), which pairs a crispy, plant-based patty with fresh avocado, beetroot, lettuce, Aussie onion, and creole tomato, all sandwiched between a soft artisan bun. They also have guilt-free desserts made of natural ingredients to complete your snacking without feeling sinful.
