23 of the best burgers in Singapore that are worth rolling up your sleeves for

Question: what do you call a juicy, char-grilled patty, loaded with oozy dressings and sweet or savoury toppings, which are softly enveloped between lightly toasted buns that are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside? The perfect burger, that’s what.

While what makes a burger “perfect” is debatable (Is a patty made from Angus beef superior to wagyu? Smoked cheese or ketchup? Caramelised onions or pickles?), what we can all agree on is how sinking our teeth into the perfect burger feels like – heavenly.

And you’ll be thrilled to know that Singapore is the happy home to many eateries that make a mean burger. We’ll leave the debate open on which of these fries up the perfect burger but we’re pretty sure that you’ll find your perfect burger at one of these establishments.

Some of these outlets are nestled away in markets and hawker centres while some others are posh, polished restaurants. But as we say, a burger’s a burger – and if it’s good, it’s damn good, wherever you get it from.

So loosen up those jaw muscles and let’s get chomping! Up ahead, we present to you 23 of the best burgers in Singapore that you can get your hands on. We definitely have our own favourites out of this list, and we’re sure you’ll find yours too!

23 of the best burgers in Singapore to sink your teeth in

1. Skirt & Dirt

Burgers don’t wear skirts! Or do they? These burgers that wear eye-catching crispy cheddar cheese skirts are probably the cutest burgers you’ll hear of today. You’ll find these juicy beef rump patty burgers being dressed to salty, crunchy perfection at a second level stall at the bustling Tiong Bahru Food Centre.

Psst… Skirt & Dirt is also celebrating its one-year anniversary with a special burger – the Truffle Mushroom Burger that we spy on their social feeds. ‘Burgdays’ are best celebrated with special burgers, we say!

Address: 30 Seng Poh Road, Tiong Bahru Market, #02-66, Singapore 168898

2. Ashes Burnnit


Originally started by the same good folks who own homegrown Muslim burger powerhouse Burgs by Project Warung (they’ve since parted ways), Ashes Burnnit offers the same quality halal burgers at affordable prices, with a rather obvious twist. The burger buns here come in a charcoal black shade. But nope, the ashes didn’t burn it – the buns are charcoal buns.

Because the patties here are intentionally smashed while they’re cooking on the grill, they’re charred to perfection on the outside while remaining juicy and moist on the inside. Go for the Ashes Smash Cheeseburger for your first taste of their signature smashed patty charcoal burgers – it’s even sprinkled with sweet shallots for that comforting taste of mom’s wok from childhood. You’ll definitely be back for more.

Address: Ashes Burnnit currently has three outlets islandwide: Golden Mile Food Centre, Alexandra Village Food Centre, and Springleaf Eating House – click here for full location details
Opening hours: 11:30am – 8:30pm (daily)

3. Wolf Burger


You’ll be wolfing these gourmet burgers from Wolf Burger down – that’s how delicious they are. And you can, because they’re so affordably priced, too. The secret to the sumptuous patty is in the cut of meat used, which is a well-guarded one. We’re told it’s a premium mix of beef cuts that grills perfectly for a spot-on, juicy patty every single time.

For their signature, go for the Original Wolf Burger that’s guaranteed to be a howling success. It’s topped with gooey, savoury cheddar cheese and a super-secret special sauce that certainly packs a punch.

Address: Wolf Burger currently has three outlets islandwide: Funan Mall, Pasarbella Suntec, and Tampines Food Co. – click here for full location details

4. Two Blur Guys

If anything, its hole-in-a-wall locale along Jalan Besar adds some serious street cred to this tiny decade-old burger joint, Two Blur Guys. You won’t go wrong with its house special, the TBG Signature Burger that comprises a satisfying greasy USDA beef patty, topped with sweet relish and tomatoes and dressed with fragrant truffle mayo and nutty melted Gruyere cheese – there’s a reason why it’s the all-time favourite for 10 years and counting.

If you’re feeling a little fancy, we hear the foie gras burger is quite the experience. Featuring two luscious pieces of foie gras on top of a juicy beef patty, it all melts in your mouth so beautifully, like butter in summer.

Address: 387 Jalan Besar, Singapore 209002

5. 25 Degrees Burgers and Liquor Bar

Fancy spending a leisurely afternoon chowing down on well-made burgers, sipping your cold pours and people watching? You can do it at the swanky 25 Degrees Burgers and Liquor Bar, a happy arrival from Los Angeles.

We hear Hollywood A-listers love this joint in LA and we can totally see why! All their beef burgers are made from air-flown US Angus beef steaks which promise a succulent mouthful with every bite. If you’re fishing for a less red option, you could go for the Yellowfin Tuna that’s no less hearty or satisfying.

Address: 200 Middle Road, Hotel G, Level 1, Singapore 188980

6. Wildfire Burgers


A gorgeously marbled wagyu beef burger for under S$15? Yes, you can get it at Wildfire Burgers, an award-winning homegrown burger joint that’s known among the burger lovin’ folk in Singapore. All its burgers are seared to fragrant, smoky perfection in an INKA close-door double-ventilated charcoal grill over Japanese Binchotan charcoal, and cushioned by fluffy, buttery brioche buns.

The aforementioned SRF Wagyu Burger uses premium wagyu from Snake River Farms in the US, and are dressed in the distinctive smoky spiciness of chipotle mayo and sweet caramelised onions. Do get some tissues ready because sinking your teeth into these buns of smoky, juicy goodness can be a messy affair but it’s totally worth the cleanup.

Address:  80 Bencoolen Street, NAFA Campus 1, #01-15, Singapore 189655
Opening hours: 12pm – 3pm; 5.30pm – 10.30pm (Mon to Fri) | 12pm – 3pm; 4.30pm – 10.30pm (Sat & Sun)

7. Burger Frites


Unpretentious, solid beef burgers are the star of the show here at this casual burger and fries outlet in Joo Chiat. Opened by the same people who own the popular steakhouse Braseiro that’s known for its quality cuts minus the hefty price tag, Burger Frites offers much of the same but only, burgers.

Zero in on the juicy 180g Angus Beef options for the patty when you traipse down for a bite – you’ll definitely be impressed by how lush and juicy they are. In case you’re curious, the Angus beef patties are made up of USDA Angus brisket, USDA striploin, and Australian wagyu fat.

Hand-crafted brioche buns from artisan bakery Maison Kayser complete the burgers here and we must say, they make a wonderfully smooth finishing touch.

8. Fatburger

Does Singapore have room for yet another famous burger chain? We supposed the answer is a resounding yes, if it’s THE Fatburger from Hollywood. In a list full of juicy beef burgers char-grilled to perfection, Fatburger’s signature offering stands out for being, well, extremely large.

Meet the XXXL Burger (that’s extra extra EXTRA large for you!) – an impressive four-patty burger that teeters precariously the moment it is assembled. It’s near impossible to chomp down neatly on this one, so you may as well embrace the mess. Go on, add an extra fried egg to amp it up some more, and slurp it all up, juicy patties creamy relish and all.

We highly recommend grabbing a milkshake from the dedicated milkshake bar to wash it all down – there’s just something so comforting about the combination of burgers and milkshakes.

Address: Fatburger currently has five outlets islandwide: Novena Square, Star Vista, Kinex, NEWest, and Orchard Cineleisure – click here for full location details

9. Five Guys


Another day, another big burger name from the US… but big, REALLY big. With more than 1,600 outlets in the US, Five Guys has finally arrived on our shores in 2019 after a much-anticipated wait and we’re all here for it! We especially love that the burgers here are so customisable – choose from a whopping 15 ingredients to create the burger of your dreams.

You can even double up on the patties, which are a respectable 100g of very juicy meat. Turns out that they’re so naturally flavourful and succulent because they’re air-flown chilled and not frozen. To indulge, have the burgers with a creamy milkshake alongside. We hear the unusual-sounding combination of banana, salted caramel, and bacon bits is a secret winner that tastes surprisingly like Snickers.

Address: Five Guys currently has two outlets islandwide: Plaza Singapura and NEX – click here for full location details
Opening hours: 11am – 10pm (daily, except on Tuesdays at the Plaza Singapura outlet which closes at 8.30pm)

10. VeganBurg


If the vegan life chose you but you’re still pining for ghosts of hearty, meaty burgers past, you’ll want to make a beeline for VeganBurg. Burgers at VeganBurg are, as you may infer from the name of the store, 100% plant-based.

Another big plus point? Vegan burger lovers will really enjoy the wide assortment of plant-based patties available here. Our recommendation has to be the bestselling Char-Grilled Satay Burger, with a patty that is made from GMO-free soybeans, drenched with sweet satay sauce and paired with tangy pineapples for a refreshing kick.

We know this sounds like a travesty but you could make your burger even healthier (yes, really) by switching out the gluten-free buns for a lettuce wrap – it’s surprisingly satisfying, trust us.

Address: 44 Jalan Eunos, Singapore 419502
Opening hours: 11.30am – 9.30am (daily)

11. OverEasy


For a quintessential all-American diner experience, you’ll want to head on over to OverEasy, for unbeatable diner fare with a fabulous bayside view of the Singapore skyline. They just do classic burgers so well – think succulent wagyu blend chuck patties seared just right, encased by fluffy potato buns that are literally soft as a cloud.

If you’ve got a yearning for a burger with a little more pizazz, the sumptuous Truffle Burger with its homemade truffle mayo, Swiss cheese and a generous serving of mushrooms will hit all the right spots. And of course, wash it all down with a milkshake.

Address:1 Fullerton Road, One Fullerton Singapore, #01-06, Singapore 049213

12. Omakase Burger


You may have seen these stores around Singapore and heard the hype. And what they say about Omakase Burgers dishing out one of the best burgers on our island is all true.

The beef patties are hand-ground and smashed before they’re carefully grilled to tender perfection. The other deal sealer? The secret sauce. Packed full of umami, it’s flavourful and lends another dimension to the juicy patties and soft potato buns.

If this is your maiden visit to one of Omakase’s stores, try the signature Omakase Burger. It is simplicity par excellence, with every single ingredient done to perfection.

Address: Omakase Burger currently has six outlets islandwide: Orchard Central, Bukit Timah, Bedok, Alice@Mediapolis, East Coast, and Robertson Quay – click here for full location details

13. Three Buns

best-burgers-singapore-three-bunsOne of Singapore’s most well-known burger names has to be Three Buns, which expanded into its own premises at Robertson Quay just last year from Potato Head. And it’s not difficult to see why: a menu comprising classic burgers and new creations that promise a taste odyssey.

Every patty is made from two prime cuts of grass-fed vintage Australian Black Angus, so you know it’s absolutely the real deal with these not-so-little babies. Even the ketchup here is handmade – testament, we think, to the owner’s commitment to excellence and perfection. Don’t leave without trying Da Cheese Master, a regular cheeseburger that’s extra special courtesy of a white miso paste dressing.

Address: 60 Robertson Quay, Singapore 238252
Opening hours: 5pm – 12am (Mon to Thu) | 12pm – 12am (Fri) | 10am – 2am (Sat) | 10am – 10pm (Sun)

14. (working title) Burger Bar

best-burgers-singapore-working-titleA halal-certified gourmet burger joint sounds excellent to us, so say hello to (working title) Burger Bar. We recommend steering off the beaten path of beef burgers here and giving the unconventional burger options a try, mostly because they’re so darn delicious.

We spy lamb and crab on their menu and reviews agree that they’re swimmingly awesome! If you really have to go with beef because burgers aren’t burgers without it, we recommend the impressive Tower of Power: a veritable three-patty construction bolstered by a tasty rosti packed in.

Address: 783 North Bridge Road, Singapore 198751
Opening hours: 9am – 10pm (Mon to Thu, Sun) | 9am – 11pm (Fri & Sat)

15. Hans Im Glück

For burgers right out of a fairy-tale, look no further than German burger grill Hans Im Glück. Sitting pretty under a magical birch forest whilst taking bites out of delicious burgers offers an unforgettable experience and we think you’ll be back for more.

The burgers at Hans come in a few bun options: sourdough, multigrain, the bread-less naked, or the limited-time-only pretzel bun. Hans’ version of the classic beef burger, the Birkenwald, definitely holds its own against its American counterparts. The patty is cooked just right, topped with mushrooms and slathered with tangy sour cream chive sauce, resulting in an explosion of juices with every expectant mouthful.

Best enjoyed with a glass of Hans’ in-house pours of delicate-looking cocktails and mocktails.

16. Shake Shack

best-burgers-singapore-shake-shackAh, would any list of the best burgers in Singapore ever be complete without Shake Shack? When news first broke of its arrival in Singapore two short years ago, there was a collective whoop of excitement – backed up by the snaking queues outside its doors at Jewel Changi Airport way beyond its opening month.

Here’s why: an unbeatable classic cheeseburger made from fatty Angus beef patties that are seared to precision to yield a crunchy outside while remaining juicy and moist inside. The tightly-kept secret recipe to the Shake Sauce is also a winner, giving the burgers the right amount of kick and flavour for the perfect bite.

With more outlets opening around our sunny island (you can check out our review of the latest outlet in Gardens by the Bay here), we hope this means there’ll be less waiting for our favourite burgers!

17. Burger & Lobster

best-burgers-singapore-burger-and-lobsterYou’d never have known but lobsters pair like a dream with beef patties and make for the most luxe, decadent burger. Try it at London-based Burger & Lobster, which opened to much excitement in 2019 at Jewel Changi Airport.

The B&L Beast Burger is an impressive beef and lobster burger that comprises a solid 170g Nebraskan beef patty that’s been grilled with tender loving care, and chunks of wild-caught succulent lobster. Topped off with creamy brie and truffle mayo, and sweet Chinese cabbage slaw, it’s probably one of the lushest burgers you will taste, the perfect marriage of land and sea in one sumptuous bun.

Address: Burger & Lobster currently has two outlets islandwide: Jewel Changi Airport and Raffles Hotel – click here for full location details

We really like the Beef and Chimichurri Burger, a shiok Singapore-exclusive creation that features grass-fed Argentinian beef in 160g cuts, local greens, and a flavourful dressing of sour-and-tangy house-made chimichurri sauce (a delicious concoction of vinegar, garlic, herbs, and chilli).

Address: 88 Amoy Street, Singapore 069907
Opening hours: 8.15am – 9.45pm (daily)

19. Burnt Ends

best-burgers-singapore-burnt-endsPerfect for unabashed carnivores among us, Michelin-starred Burnt Ends serves up meats of the absolute highest quality. And while not a burger joint per se, it’s telling, then, that the one and only burger on its menu has made this list.

Ladies and gents, dive right in with their signature burger, The Sanger. It’s a pulled-pork wonder that simply melts in your mouth with every bite. Combined with smoky chipotle aioli that’s a tad spicy and cool coleslaw wedged in between pillowy brioche buns, you’ll be back for this burger over and over.

Address:  20 Teck Lim Road, Singapore 088391
Opening hours: 11.45am – 11pm (Mon to Sat) | Closed on Sundays

20. Wagyu Bites

best-burgers-singapore-wagyu-bitesMeet Wagyu Bites, the sister restaurant to Japanese yakiniku joint Aburiya, whose chefs procure wagyu of the highest quality at prestigious wagyu auctions in Japan. In a brilliant way of not letting these premium offcuts go to waste due to the size requirements of yakiniku presentation, Wagyu Bites turns these quality morsels into yummy, moist and tender wagyu burgers.

All its burgers contain said A4 wagyu with even more fat added in while it is being hand-chopped, so you get an extremely juicy patty that’s sandwiched between custom-made whole-meal Hattendo buns with a satisfying glazed top.

If you’re feeling particularly ravenous, you’ll do well with the Triple Cheese Burger – a mammoth triple patty burger with thrice the cheese and juice. Also good to try are the Roast Beef Cheese Burger and the very luxe-sounding Foie Gras Burger.

Address:  78/79 Boat Quay, Singapore 049867

21. Black Tap

best-burgers-singapore-black-tapSnazzy NYC burger joint Black Tap has landed in Singapore, making the glitzy Marina Bay Sands its first home here. Go for the classic beef burger if you want something you’ll definitely love, the thick prime beef patty is cooked medium-well and remains pink and extremely juicy, a nice surprise indeed! It even feels a bit like you’re eating a steak in between buttery, toasty bread – it’s that good.

If you’re feeling adventurous, we say go for the burger that New Yorkers love the most: The Greg Norman, a strong-smelling blue cheese burger that’s basically a durian equivalent to the rest of the world that you’ll either love…or not.

Address: 10 Bayfront Avenue, Marina Bay Sands Shoppes, L1-80, Singapore 018956
Opening hours: 12pm – 10.30pm (Mon to Fri) | 11am – 10.30pm (Sat & Sun)

22. BurgerLabo

best-burgers-singapore-burgerlaboIf even its “basic” beef burger is the result of six years of heavy research and development (and counting!), you know this isn’t your everyday ordinary burger.

With a delectable beef patty that’s created from a premium blend of grass-fed Black Angus neck and Toriyama Wagyu A4 brisket and tenderloin, you know you’re in for a right treat at the first bite of its signature basic burger, affectionally known as “BB”. This star patty is even brushed with bone marrow butter for an even richer mouthful, and we don’t know how much more sumptuous you can go with this.

We highly recommend trying this at least once for the experience of trying one man’s tireless quest to develop The Perfect Burger in Singapore.

Address: Block 41 Malan Road, Gillman Barracks, Singapore 109454

23. 8ASH

This multi-concept pop-up diner flexes some serious pop culture cred by paying tribute to Netflix’s Riverdale, with its interior looking an awful lot like Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe from the hit series.

Two out of the three brands housed here are burger stores: Mirai Burgers and Love Handle Burgers, so you’ll definitely want to drop by for your Japanese or vegan burger fix. The variety is really quite impressive, so we’ll just leave you with two of the most outstanding burgers for starters.

Have a go at the juicy Katsu Okonomiyaki burger, which has a fried-to-perfection katsu pork cutlet with bonito flakes sprinkled all over; or the Fillet-O-Fishless burger which is made of soy and corn and tastes just like a respectable flaky fish fillet.

Address: 8 Ann Siang Hill, Singapore 069788
