There’s little a good burger can’t solve, other than your diet plans. For days when you’re feeling down, or just peckish for a moorish bite, let our list guide you (and your tummy) to the best burger places in Singapore.
For the best cheeseburgers
Omakase Burger @ Picnic Food Park
435 Orchard Road, #03-15, Wisma Atria, Singapore 238877
Their tagline reads: Serving the best cheeseburgers in Singapore. And it ain’t some presumptuous claim. They’ve got a glowing review from news outlets and food critics, so you know that you’re digging into a really, really good burger. Their Omakase Cheeseburger ($14.90) comes with succulent hand-ground beef patty, fluffy toasted artisanal buns, melted American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and drizzled with their secret Omakase sauce to top off this winning dining experience.
For a local twist
17 Jalan Pinang, Singapore 199149
Those craving for some chilli crab can now get a single serving fix with Artistry Chilli Crab Burger ($25). It comes with a handpicked blue swimmer crab patty stuffed with loads of crab meat. And the side of housemate chilli crab sauce comes with enough fiery kick, making it great to dunk your burger in, or as a dip for the side of fries. You’ll get all the familiar flavours from the chilli crab, but without the mess of wrestling with the shell.
For a classic American diner experience
541 Orchard Road, #01-01 Liat Towers, Singapore 238881
You’ll head to a cha chain teng for a polo bun, a kopitiam for some char kway tiao, and an American diner for some burgers and milkshake. And OverEasy is everything you love in an American diner – retro furnishings, and most importantly, good ole’ comfort food. Think spicy buffalo wings and root beer floats to go with The Truffle ($23), a wagyu chunk bend patty with Swiss cheese, sautéed onions and mushrooms, and truffle mayo.
For the extensive selection
Three Buns, Potato Head Folk Singapore
36 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089143
Come for the extensive burger selection, but stay for the wild interior, which is as colourful as their creative burger choices. They’ve got everything from the classic Baby Huey ($16) with aged Hereford Angus beef, to the ever-popular Honky-Tonk ($15) with buttermilk fried chicken and den miso mayo, and the (somewhat) healthy version of The Roots ($15) with seasonal vegetables, and cheese fritter in a wholemeal bun. Perfect for a night-out with a bunch of your friends.
For a reimagined burger
559 Bukit Timah Road, #01-01, King’s Arcade, Singapore 269695
For a burger unlike any other, try Little Hiro’s specially created selection of ramen burgers. They’ve swopped the usual bun for Japanese ramen, making for a unique fusion dish unlike any. Try their Japanese-inspired Chicken Karage Ramen Burger ($10.20), or opt for the BBQ Bacon Bleu Ramen Burger ($12.20) for an East-meets-West dining experience.
For those with a huge appetite
13 Dempsey Road, Singapore 249674
If you’re really, really, really hungry, why not try the Terminator Burger Challenge from Roadhouse. The meal’s completely free if you can finish their giant burger of epic proportions in under 20 minutes. And by epic, we mean ‘six classic beef patties, six slices of cheese, streaky bacon, jalapeños, chilli, sesame buns, coleslaw, and fries’ kind of epic. You’ll even get to go on their wall of fame if you succeed.
For the burger of your dreams
38 Orchard Road, Singapore 238836
187 Upper Thompson Road, Singapore 574335
122 Pasir Panjang Road, Singapore 118544
29 Lorong Mambong, Holland Rd, Singapore 277689
11 Kensington Park Rd, Singapore 557263

For those Ramly burger craves
331 North Bridge Road, #03-07, Odeon Towers Extension Rooftop, Singapore 188720
For the times when you’re craving for that Ramly burger but can’t seem to ever find a pasar malam anywhere, you can now fulfil that craving with the Loof Original Ramly ($23) where an Australian beef patty comes wrapped in an omelette and drizzled with their secret sedap sauce. Besides, this place has all the marking of a hipster hangout – neon signs for the gram’, locally-inspired bites, and a gorgeous al-fresco rooftop dining area.
For a guilt-free indulgence
44 Jalan Eunos, Singapore 419502
If you’re watching your waistline, here’s a sort of healthy alternative to help you get over that massive burger craving. VeganBurg serves up a 100% plat-based menu that doesn’t compromise on taste. You’ll be surprised if you thought that their burgers would look like it came from a garden. The Char-grilled Satay ($9.90) features a grilled soy patty with rich satay sauce sandwiched in a fibre-filled bun. And with meaty patties made from soy or mushrooms, chances are you probably won’t even notice the difference.
