The Handburger raises the burger stakes.

It seems as though the Golden Arches has its work cut out for it in the burger arena, what with a slew of burger joints popping up in Singapore faster than you can cook a beef patty. The Handburger is one such place, serving up delectable gourmet burgers for a reasonable price. The name comes from the fact that every morsel of food served from its kitchen is proudly handmade.
We decided to go for the signature The Works Burger (S$11.80), which lived up to its name. Between the burger buns were a sunny-side-up egg, bacon, onion rings, condiments, and more. The beef patty was of pretty good quality, and was done to medium perfection, just like I ordered.
The Battered Dory Burger (S$9.80) looked extremely appetizing, and it did not disappoint taste-wise either. Almost like a breaded version of fish and chips, it came with a unique addition—lotus root crisps, which lent a sweet crunch to the well-fried and battered Pacific Dory fish.
We also ordered a set meal for an additional S$4, which includes a choice of sides and a drink. Their famous Caesar Salad, while slightly on the small side, was highly satisfactory—the fresh romaine lettuce, tasty egg and bacon made for a crisp, scrumptious mouthful with every bite.
My verdict? The Handburger is well worth repeat visits, with its yummy burgers and satisfying sides. My only wish was that I had chips to go along with the burgers. Or maybe it’s just that I have been over-conditioned by the Golden Arches.
