Burgers are among the ultimate comfort food that everyone can enjoy. They generally come in classic (fast food-type) burgers and gourmet burgers, where the latter’s major difference is that they use fresh and quality meat patties instead of frozen varieties. So, if you are looking for some recommendations, check out our selected list of 8 Best Gourmet Burger Spots in Singapore to Satisfy Your Cravings!
One Fattened Calf or OFC doesn’t take shortcuts when it comes to their American-style gourmet burgers. That means everything here is made from scratch, namely their potato buns and signature sauce. They also insist on using New Zealand grass-fed beef and yes, they personally grind them into patties. First-timers might want to try their signature OFC Goldburger, which has an added topping of homemade pulled beef brisket that pairs well with onions and cheddar cheese.
Alternatively, there’s the OFC Butterburger consisting of savoury beefy goodness layered with thick slabs of grass-fed butter. No doubt an interesting substitute over the usual cheddar cheese. You can enjoy either of them a la carte or make it a combo, which comes with thick-cut OFC fries and any drink of your choice (their OFC Golden Lime Slushie would be a good pick).

Burger Frites uses U.S. Angus beef that is sourced directly from the butchery and fire-grilled to juicy perfection. Try their classic, no-frills B.F. cheeseburger that comes with the usual toppings like lettuce, tomato, pickles and cheddar cheese. You can also substitute the U.S. Angus beef with another patty of your choice including homemade fried chicken leg patty, breaded & fried Camembert cheese patty or plant-based beef patty from Beyond Meat. Their fries are just as good since they prepare them in-house using fresh potatoes and double-fry them for extra crispness.

BurgerLabo’s Basic Burger may sound generic but beyond the name, it’s pretty good stuff. At least according to Google reviews averaging at 4.3 out of 5-star rating. Expect a thick and juicy patty, where they use a combo of 100% grass-fed Aberdeen Angus beef and Japan’s A4-grade Kuroge Washu beef. Toppings like American cheese to homemade shio kombu mayo-based sauce further add depths of flavours, all sandwiched in a nice, toasted bun. The burger comes with a side serving of shoestring truffle fries with grated Parmesan cheese.
