We know and love Yardbird for their mouthwatering Southern Fried Chicken, but here’s a secret—their Great American Burger is truly, nothing but GREAT.

Behold—it’s the cheese master! There’s a reason why this cheeky restaurant-bar at Robertson Quay is so popular. We love everything on their extensive menu, but what really takes the cake for us is their “Da Cheese Master”. Who can say no to miso mustard, charred onions, and a buttery brioche bun? We sure can’t.
Plus, your pups even get a free patty!
Da Cheese Master: $18
When a place is called “Meatsmith”, you can bet your bottom dollar they’re not fooling around with their dishes. Their cheeseburger may sound simple, but it’s truly anything but. Thanks to a wicked combination of double beef brisket patties, American sliced cheddar, house pickles, special burger sauce, and incredibly soft potato buns, it’s just really what lifts our moods after a loooooooong day.
Don’t forget—pop by on Tuesdays and enjoy these treats at only $10!

This popular restaurant is truly a gourmet haven. Perfect for any meal of the day from brunch to post-dinner drinks, they’ve mastered the art of refinement and offer an extraordinary array of cuisines and plates for every diet. That’s no different for their Wagyu Burger, that comes with bacon, smoky cheddar cheese, truffle mayo, bois boudran sauce, pickles, yellow mustard, balsamic onion, and mesclun sandwiched between a delicious brioche bun.
What a delicious mouthful!
TDP Wagyu Burger: $30
This homegrown burger chain is truly Singapore’s pride and glory when it comes to burgers. What started off as a humble establishment at Suntec City’s Pasarbella is quickly becoming a phenomenon—and it’s not difficult to see why.
Their Wagyu Beef Burger features a juicy wagyu patty with melted cheese, slow-cooked caramelised red onions, and to top it all off, a secret in-house sauce that has us all hooked.
Wagyu Beef Burger: $14.90
Cheeseburger… from a Korean burger fast food chain? This burger joint may be new to the local scene, but have already taken Singapore by storm.
Their burgers come with a touch of Asian influence, and are as every bit delicious as they sound. Topped with fresh tomatoes and romaine lettuce, their cheeseburger also features a layer of aburi cheese, and an umami-loaded B+ sauce.
If you’re ever in the mood for a sinful meal, or having a cheat day, this is THE place to go.
That’s because their Churger Royale burger isn’t playing around. Get ready to be treated to two massive beef patties that’s wrapped with cheese and bacon, and 2 buns that are made with churros—you read that right. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and salty that has us coming back all the time.
Churger Royale: $19
If you’re looking for a unique, out-of-the-ordinary dining experience, then this speakeasy hidden within a coffee shop along Circular Road sure won’t disappoint.
Literally at the top of their menu is the Cheeseburger Eggrolls—which honestly look a lot like Chinese Prawn Rolls. Made with beef and melted cheese that’s wrapped within a crispy eggroll skin, this unique dish tastes as good as it sounds, and strangely reminiscent of an American cheeseburger. Try it to believe it!
Cheeseburger Eggrolls: $16
Plant-based patties aren’t new to Singapore, with dozens of eateries islandwide already introducing these alternatives to their menus.
PS.Cafe’s Impossible Burger really goes the extra mile, though. Not only does it feature a juicy Impossible patty, it even comes with vintage cheddar, wilted spinach, sauteed mushrooms, tomato, crispy onions, and a side of their signature shoestring fries. No wonder some say it’s even better than the meat equivalent!
PS. Impossible Burger: $29.50
