For many of us, food has often posed as a source of great comfort. And it's a big part of the Singaporean culture, too. In these unprecedented times, a delicious bite serves as an almost certain way to lift your spirits and brighten your day.
Around the world, we see myriad ways of how food has comforted those in isolation and helped bring communities together in imaginative ways. Take René Redzepi, Danish-chef and co-owner of two-Michelin star restaurant Noma, who recently converted his fine-dining restaurant into a cheeseburger joint. The establishment, which was once notoriously hard to reserve and had a months-long waiting list, has now scrapped its queues and made its newly reinvented two-item burger menu accessible to locals, in an effort to boost social life in Copenhagen since the city's coronavirus lockdown.
As we continue to practise social distancing in Singapore, the Tatler team has produced a list of our favourite burgers in the city that would provide a tinge of comfort as we tide through the weeks to come.
