While we admit that burgers aren’t exactly the healthiest food choices around, nothing beats sinking your teeth into a succulent, tender burger oozing with melted cheese and stretching your mouth to the fullest in attempt to taste every single element in a mouthful.
Thankfully for us, Singapore has plenty of options when it comes to burger joints—from fancy restaurants to wallet-friendly hawker stalls, there is surely something for everyone no matter what your budget is.
Yet, for our Muslim friends, finding a burger joint may prove to be a bit of a challenge given how many of them are not Halal-certified. No matter, because here we have sussed out 8 Muslim-friendly burger joints in Singapore that are worth forgoing your diet for!

Situated on the second storey of Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre is Burgernomics, a Muslim-owned hawker stall that dishes out wallet-friendly, mouth-watering burgers.
The Deluxe Burger (S$6.50) has constantly been the top-seller and it features a thick, juicy beef patty with blow-torched cheddar cheese sandwiched between toasted buns that have been slathered with a dash of truffle aioli.
Most of their burgers are priced at less than S$10 and with such quality and low prices, it is no wonder that there are always long queues outside the stall.
