Burgers are one of the best food inventions ever – at least in our books. From classic burger joints to affordable hawker offerings, we’ve compiled a list of cafes, bars and restaurants to help your search for the best burgers in Singapore.
#1 Crafted by Peter Zwiener
If you’re a fan of Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, you’ll want to check out this burger spot helmed by its founder, Peter Zwiener. The restaurant features an upscale design with refined wood grains and sophisticated palettes of turquoise, red and neon. There’s even a pet-friendly alfresco dining area! Unlike Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, burgers take centre stage here; but there’s just as much focus on high-quality beef. The burgers are made with all premium ingredients, including 100% USDA-certified prime beef. There’s a range of healthy salads and classic steakhouse sides like mac n’ cheese and roasted potatoes with bacon – all sounds delicious!
If you’re a burger purist, go for The Crafted Classic. While deceptively simple, it’s the best way to let the restaurant’s high-quality beef really shine.
