Affordable burgers to satisfy your hunger
At the mention of burgers, two kinds of it come to mind – the cheap but common ones from fast food joints, and the ridiculously overpriced ones from fancy restaurants. If you are a burger lover like me and are sick and tired of those two typical types of burgers, here are seven places that serve delicious and affordable burgers at less than $10!
1. Corner Burger

DOJO is a burger joint that specialises in pork burgers. First opened along Circular Road, the eatery relocated to a more central area, at 313@Somerset just this year to cater to its growing business.

For those who prefer other meats, DOJO also serves burgers like Fowl Play ($8), which is made of fried chicken fillet. If you are not feeling up for a burger, you can also go for affordable rice bowls like their Chicken Katsu ($9)!

Just earlier this year, many stalls in Beauty World Food Centre, including Hambaobao, ceased operations due to rumours of the hawker centre closing down. In April, however, fans of Hambaobao’s cheap and good burgers rejoiced as the young couple running the stall returned to continue business. So for those who have yet to try their burgers, you can still lay hands on their Crispy Pork Belly Burger ($5.50), The Classic Beef ($5), and Buah Keluak ($5), a burger comprising of minced chicken, rempah and chap chye. Hand-cut Fries ($1.50) can also be ordered but it is limited to one portion per burger. While they are back for business, the future of the hawker centre is still uncertain so check out their Facebook page for updates before making your way down!
