Ministry of Burgers was brought about when its founders yearned for a regular dose of authentic Ramly burgers, like those sold in the streets of Malaysia, whenever they want here in Singapore. They saw an opportunity and took it. So what makes Ministry of Burgers special from the pasar malam Ramly burgers? The patties here are noticeably thicker and special in-house sauces are used for a taste that cannot be imitated anywhere else.
The Thunder Burger and Rainbow Burger are both a four-patty stacked high burger (yes not one or two but four!) with the usual vegetable and sauces. While you get to choose two different types of patties - Chicken, Veggie, Beef & Fish - for the Thunder Burger, you can select up to four different flavours for the Rainbow Burger.
As of date, there are five versions of their classic take on Ramly burgers; chicken, beef, fish, vegetable and egg. The Chicken and Beef Burgers both take on the traditional Ramly style of cooking but with custom made 80 grams thick patties. The Fish Burger is carefully cooked so that its crispy on the outside yet remains soft on the inside. If you have a vegan friend, its time to bring them here for the Vegetable Burger. Indulge in the soy-based patty coupled with lettuce and tomatoes. Last but not least, the Egg Benjo Burger substitutes the usual meat patty for an egg-shaped patty. Affordable and scrumptious, all five of these egg-wrapped patties and special sauces between buns will remain an eternal crowd favourite.

9. (working title)
Source: (working title)
When (working title) pulled down its shutter last December, many were sad as it was the first few Halal cafes in Singapore. Fans of the cafe were not left sad for too long though as they soon announced a re-opening of the cafe, three months later on March 2019. While the backyard from the initial location at Arab Street is long gone, some of the old decors are reused to bring forth a modern retro style with the eccentric mismatched furniture and accessories. The once hidden kitchen now features an open concept where you can watch your orders being prepared live in real-time!
(working title) did some work on their menu which has since then featured 10 different burger varieties on the menu. The burgers are classified into three separate categories: Keep It Basic, (working title) Favourites and (working title) Signature. There is definitely something for everyone with beef, chicken and vegetarian options to choose from.
Keep It Basic offers Beef, Chicken, Cheese and Fish burgers where each serving will come with regular-sized fried. Have something different and opt for the Fish Burger built with freshly battered dory fillet, coleslaw salad, grilled pineapple and homemade tartar sauce. Every bite will be bursting with flavours from the crunch of the fillet to the juicy pineapple cuts.
The (working title) Favourites boasts 4 renditions of their take on burgers; the Bacanator, Baaa-ger, Magic Truffle Mushroom and Holy Guacamole. The Baaa-ger is one-of-a-kind with its freshly grounded lamb patty (hence the name) topped with provolone cheese, pickled red onion, spiralled cucumber, slaw, tomatoes, sour ranch and homemade garlic aioli. The rich taste of lamb is nothing short of exquisite and will keep you going for more bites. The Magic Truffle Mushroom too is another crowd-pleaser. The patty is handmade from grilled portobello mushrooms, a drizzle of truffle oil, provolone cheese and caramelised onions. We love it when non-meat ingredients go into a patty and are executed really well. Kudos to (working title) for this!
(working title) Signature’s consists of the Tower of Power and Wagyu Burger. Tower of Power is not only generous in size but also in ingredients. This almighty burger came about by stacking three freshly grounded beef patties, gooey cheddar cheese, caramelised onions, crushed tater tots, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and homemade BBQ sauce. A good burger can never upset anyone and that is what (working title) came back for.

FatPapas, a Halal spinoff to FatBoys, first launched in early 2017 and created quite a buzz online and in terms of long queue lines at the store in Bali Lane. This two-story shophouse is a short five-minute walk from Bugis Junction and just like its counterpart, they have gained quite a reputation for serving some of the best Halal burgers in sunny Singapore. According to co-founder Sheikh Haikel, the idea of FatPapas was to take all that was great about FatBoysand make it halal so that Muslim and non-Muslim friends can bond and create unforgettable memories together.
There are ten Speciality Burgers on the menu but if none of those managed to catch your eye, you can choose to Build Your Own Burger instead. On the list of Specialities, the Wimpy Burger has proved itself to be a crowd favourite. It is made with house-blended beef patties, a sunny-side-up egg, turkey bacon, melted aged cheese cheddar and barbeque sauce smothered on sesame seed buns. The Bushtucker has a nice contrast between the dark buns and the creamy garlic aioli. The turkey bacon is heaven when paired with the thick beef patty and is guaranteed to satisfy your burger cravings. If you prefer something lighter, opt for the Shroom Melt where sauteed Shiitake mushrooms, beef chuck patty, cheddar cheese and garlic aioli form a harmony in between two sesame seed buns.
All the burgers are served with a side of fries and cooked well done. Pro-tip: Change up the regular potato fries to sweet potato fries for some sweet snacking!

No-frill and unpretentious. Burgernomics is set on the second level, known as the ‘Fareground’ where most of the stalls are not selling typical hawker stall food, of Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre. With a combined experience of 17 years in the F&B industry, Burgernomics was started by three good friends with the aim of keeping their burgers honest and simple, but with a distinctive Asian touch. The trio founders also aim to churn out very affordable burgers that are not just finger-lickin’ good but will leave you wanting more. Fun fact: The buns used are made fresh daily and sourced from an artisanal bakery in Joo Chiat.
The Rendang Burger incorporates pulled beef topped with sweet barbeque sauce which mimics the bursting flavours of rendang really well. At Burgernomics, the rendang sauce is prepared every day by searing and cooking Australian brisket for 48 hours. With this, the end product boasts soft cuts of beef which just melts in the mouth. Cucumber and onion slices join the burger for extra crunch. A+ for texture and taste.
The Crispy Chicken Burger is especially ideal for those who prefer deep-fried meat in their burgers. The buttermilk marinated fried chicken has a great crispy exterior and is served with apple and red cabbage slaw for the nice flavour contrast. The creamy mayo and tender juicy chicken is reminiscent of KFC’s Zinger Burger but the buttermilk marinate does it for us.
The Deluxe Burger calls for the joining of a beef patty made up of lean meat and fat, sauteed mushrooms and onions, oozing American double cheddar and a very evident taste and smell of truffle aioli. Truffle is an acquired taste so if you love all things truffle, be sure to check this out!
