This mysterious New York burger joint is coming to Singapore

The passionate folks behind the popular but nameless burger joint in New York (identifiable only by an iconic neon sign) will opening a branch here in the first quarter of next year. 

Stepping away from the bells and whistles of the gourmet buns trend (one good burger does not truffle oil make), Burger Joint is known for its unpretentious and widely-acclaimed selection of basic burgers—the hamburger, cheeseburger, double hamburger, double cheeseburger—since its inception at Le Parker Meridien in 2003. Founder Steven Pipes is fiercely proud of their freshly-made beef patties and we’ve been told that prices will be kept at a pretty affordable rate, possibly below $15. 

The Singapore branch (which is the first in Southeast Asia) is still in the planning stages, so stay tuned for more updates.
