New York’s Burger Joint is opening in Singapore next week

We wrote about a mysterious—but popular—burger chain from New York opening here last year and now, Burger Joint will be launching its first Southeast Asia branch at Gemmill Lane on May 3.

Located alongside cool cats like bottle shop and cafe Gemmills, Mediterranean restaurant Maggie Joan’s, and the soon-to-be-open Employee’s Only, this “underground” diner-style restaurant retains the irreverant vibe of its New York flagship, with smooth wooden walls covered in graffiti (diners are welcome to leave their mark there), expansive booths with dark leather seats and an open kitchen. And in true New York fashion, don’t be surprised if you get the side-eye for not clearing after yourself. They are quick to set themselves apart from other fancy burger restaurants here—the menu offers a focused and affordable selection of four different burgers (cheese burger, hamburger, bacon burger and bacon cheese burger) ranging from $13.10 for a hamburger to $15.80 for a bacon cheese burger, all of which are prepared with a generous portion of freshly-made ground beef patty. 

There is also a full bar with 18 craft beers on tap from countries like Sweden, the UK, the US and Japan, and a curated cocktail menu by Proof & Company, featuring classics that we were told are still being fine-tuned.
