Singapore’s best burgers vary from cheeseburgers at Omakase Burger, to the Truff Ryder at Three Buns at Potato Head Folk, to the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Burger at Wolf Burgers at PasarBella Suntec. There is a burger—or two, or three—for everyone.
Topping our list of Singapore’s best burgers is the uber-popular burger joint from the U.K. Originally a food truck in South London, MEATliquor. MEATliquor is known for American-inspired burgers, carefully sourced ingredients, and long queues.
Burgers come in three categories: Beef, Chicken, and The Others. Beef favorites include the Bacon Cheeseburger and the ever-popular Dead Hippie, made with two mustard-fried beef patties, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, and dead hippie sauce. In the Chicken category, try the Dirty Chicken Burger or Buffalo Chicken Burger. Popular sides include chicken wings and Shambal Fries, a messy heap of deliciousness which includes sambal sauce, a fried egg, and crispy onions. With sauce oozing from these burgers, you better have the napkins ready!

Three Buns at Potato Head Folk
A list of Singapore’s best burgers wouldn’t be complete without Three Buns. This Jakarta import offers some pretty impressive burgers created by Chef Adam Penney, famously from London’s ‘Patty & Bun’. The first floor is almost hawker style, you order at the window and can have a seat at one of the outdoor tables. The second floor is more cosy with comfortable seating and kooky decor. While both have burgers, the upstairs has a larger menu.
Three Buns, which has excellent burgers with beef, chicken, lamb, and even crab patties. Popular choices include the Baby Huey and the Honky Tonk. For a particularly decadent treat, try the Truff Ryder; this burger is comprised of a Waygu beef patty, pan-seared foie gras, black truffle and den miso mayo, and more. As for sides, the Naughty Fries are also a favorite.

Wolf Burgers – PassarBella Suntec
Our Singapore’s best burgers journey wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Omakase Burger. This four-year-old restaurant is known for having some of the best burgers in Singapore. Omakase says they have researched and perfected the all-important “beef-to-bun ratio,” and customers rave about their soft, artisanal buns and tender beef patties. The only thing they need to make their burgers even better is real, not processed cheese.
Choose from one of their popular cheeseburgers; the Applewood Smoked Bacon cheeseburger is particularly delicious (but only available at the Wisma Atria location). Sides include customer-favorite truffle fries, cheese fries, and their signature Beef Tallow Fries, available on Saturdays and Sundays at the Wisma Atria outlet. Burgers range in price from S$14.90 to S$17.90.
