The hearty, all-American plates at Hard Rock Cafe include some of the island's absolute best burgers. The half-pound burger patties of certified Black Angus Steak, are grilled medium well and served on toasted brioche buns. There are eight varieties (including a vegetarian patty and one made with Aussie Wagyu). However, the Original Legendary Burger where the patty is topped with smoked bacon, cheddar, a golden fried onion ring, tomato, lettuce and their special sauce - is a firm favourite, and hits the spot.
Ever heard of a burger where the accompanying fries are just as good? At Rumours Beach Club, the Classic Hamburger ($18.80) is served with their signature thick-cut, fat chips. The burger itself is a homemade beef patty topped with bacon, cheddar cheese and crispy Old Dutch cheese. This and the chips make a greasy-good combo that will keep you coming back for more.
Like most things on their menu, the Kua’Aina Burger has Hawaiian and tropical flavours that are a welcome change from the usual. It is a 150g Wagyu patty topped with juicy grilled pineapple, a poached egg and guacamole, it is served within a sunflower seed ciabatta bun with a side of fries that has been dusted with li hung mui (salted, dried plum) powder. Light, delicious and makes for an excellent beach-side nosh.
At Tanjong Beach Club, the burger is made up of posh ingredients, and it hits the spot if you have worked up an appetite playing beach volleyball, swimming or simply grooving to the DJs tunes. The Tanjong Burger (from $29) is a flame-grilled Tajima Wagyu patty, smoked cheddar, bacon, lettuce, tomato and Goma mustard sandwiched between pillowy soft buns. It is served with chips, but you could add a fried egg (cage-free, of course) or an extra patty for some extra yum.
If you are spending the day at Universal Studios Singapore, make sure to grab a bite at Mel's Drive-In. The restaurant itself is done up like a retro all-American diner (which makes for tons of insta-moments), and the menu includes all the usual diner staples. Their burger patties are made with 100% grain-fed beef, and you cannot go wrong with the famous Turkey Bacon Cheeseburger ($16.00) of minced beef patty, lettuce, tomato, crispy turkey bacon, cheddar cheese and Mel's sauce.

If you live on Sentosa, eM by the Marina at Sentosa Cove is a great neighbourhood cafe/bar. If you don’t, their burgers make a good reason to trek all the way there. Theirs is a hefty Double Cheeseburger ($20) where two all-beef patties, swiss cheese, sauteed onions, lettuce, pickles and sweet chilli are served within mayonnaise toasted buns. Skinny fries on the side and lush Marina views for company.
Serving island-inspired menu of the best of sea and land, Native Kitchen serves up Asian and Polynesian cuisines that will hit the spot. Vibing the tropical infusion, the highlight here is the Big Kahuna Burger ($28). It is a good ol' chopped beef steak topped with thick bacon, grilled pineapple and Monterey jack.
Aptly called the Super Burger ($26), this hearty treat comes packed with 200g of juicy minced, strips of bacon and finally topped with a sunny side up egg. Always buzzing on weekends, this popular beach hangout is known for its hearty spin on familiar favourites such as the breakfast fry-up - Coastes Breakfast ($23) - and Slipper Lobster Spaghetti ($28).
