Say double cheese! How many of these mouth-watering burgers have you gotten closely acquainted with?
1) DF Wagyu Cheese Burger at Define:food
Ask the T.Dining team where to find the best burger in town and we'll chorus, "Define:food." Note that this is a very tall burger, but no need to unhinge your jaws like a cobra — simply ask the kitchen to slice your burger into more manageable portions.
2) Beautiful Mess 5.0 at myBurgerlab
Like its name implies, The Beautiful Mess will cause runny egg yolk, panko-crusted Portobello, melted cheddar and honey mustard to dribble down your chin. Just wing it and grin.
3) Mala Burger at Pebble
Head around the world in 15 burgers inspired by China (Mala Burger), Korea (Soy Garlic Burger), Malaysia (Crispy Chicken Rendang Burger), Japan (Salmon Sushi Burger), the Middle East (Falafel Burger) and more. Passport unnecessary.
4) MM Deep-Fried Burger at Mean Mince
What might seem like a heart attack on a plate proves less oily than expected. In fact, this one quickly shot to the top of our favourites list. The usual suspects are parcelled in Lángos (a type of Hungarian bread) before the whole package is submerged in the deep-fryer.
5) Lamburgerni at The Daily Grind
A superb option for those who baa-ck away from beef. A juicy lamb patty is dressed with two sauces — smoky tomato & pesto — and accompanied by grilled vegetables.
6) Pulled Pork Burger at Ante
While pulled pork has a tendency to run dry, Ante's is deliciously supple. Accoutrements include an egg cooked sunny-side up, chipotle sauce, jalapeños, and pickled red cabbage for a welcome touch of acidity.
7) Truffle’d Swiss at KGB
Melty Swiss cheese and the earthy aroma of truffles propel this burger to the top of Killer Gourmet Burgers's best-sellers. Feeling extra indulgent? Get a side of buttermilk-battered onion rings, Southwestern egg rolls or 'potato shots' on the side.
8) Classic Beef Burger at Beatles & Buns
Previously known as Buns Burger Bar, this sleepy eatery sure doesn't skimp on its sauces; we found ours slick with smoky chipotle mayo. Do upgrade your russet potato fries to the sweet potato variety.
9) Salt Beef at Patty & Pie
Painstaking preparation goes into the making of this burger. Not only do the owners sous-vide their own salt beef; it has to be cured beforehand. There's also the matter of the double-ground beef. You can taste the love in every bite.
10) Soul Burger at Crust
Crust's lightly salted pretzel buns are what give the restaurant an edge over its competitors; that and their deliciously thick, hand-shaped patties cooked a perfect medium-rare.
