By Epoch Times StaffWho says vegan or vegetarian food is boring? If you are sick of eating plain rice and vegetables, why not try something different—vegan burgers! We have listed our top 5 places that serve the best vegan or vegetarian burgers in Singapore.
Founded on 10 October 2010, VeganBurg is the world’s first 100 percent plant-based fast food restaurant. All of their burgers are vegan and do not contain gluten, dairy or eggs. The patties are made from soya beans and mushrooms, and are GMO-free, cholesterol-free and hormone-free. Combined farm-fresh greens and gourmet sauce in a wholewheat bun, their vegan burgers are some of the best in Singapore.
There’s no reason why fast food can’t be nutritious and healthy, and VeganBurg has done a great job in that department. Their bestselling Avocado Beetroot (S$11.90) burger consists of a GMO-free crispy plant-protein patty topped with slices of fresh avocado and shredded beetroots, fresh lettuce, red onions, tomatoes and creamy vegan aioli.
Another bestseller — the Creamy Shrooms (S$9.90) — is a culinary masterpiece. The burger bun is filled with fresh button mushrooms, zesty peppers, and a crispy yet juicy vegan patty that is perfectly complemented by a dairy-free cream sauce.
Cracked Mayo (S$8.90) is another must-try! Spread with VeganBurg’s cholesterol-free mayo, this all-time classic never gets old.
The serving size for each burger is quite big. But for only an additional S$3.90, you can add either seaweed fries or sizzlin’ broccoli, and a 16 oz drink to complete your meal. You can also choose to add-on any delicious side dishes off their menu.

2. Hans Im Glück
With four outlets in Orchard Road, Raffles Place, Boat Quay and VivoCity, this German burger joint serves seven different types of vegetarian burgers and four vegan burgers. For the bun, you can choose between a sourdough bun, multigrain bun or a naked burger (which comes without bread). Each burger comes with fresh lettuce, red onions and sun-ripened tomatoes, all drenched in their secret Hans Im Glück sauce. The patties are made from olives, walnuts, spinach and cheese, or wheat.
Try out their vegetarian Horntrager burger, which is one of the best vegetarian burgers in Singapore. Its special walnut patty is juicy with an excellent bite , and it goes well with the chunks of feta cheese and fig jam.
Or, indulge in the Wohlfein burger, which consists of a walnut patty paired with aged cheddar cheese, lingonberries and more walnuts.
Their vegan option, Fabelhafter, combines a wheat patty with avocado cream and herb salad. The patty tastes just like meat and, complemented by an orange-mustard sauce, this burger is something that will spark joy in you.
Add S$5 to the price of the burger to make it a special complete meal, which comes with a side of your choice, a speciality drink, and a hot drink. Do note that their lunch special is served up till 5pm every day, whereas their evening special starts from 5pm.

Founded by Dr Ng Wai Lek, a vegetarian for the past 30 years, Nomvnom offers a total of 22 types of mouthwatering vegan burgers. With an extensive menu and affordable prices, the restaurant is loved by both vegans and non-vegans. The patties are either imported or homemade, and are free of dairy products, onions, garlic, and alcohol. At Nomvnom, you can choose from a variety of patties, ranging from soy, potato, mixed vegetables to mushroom-based.
Their homemade burger buns are made from all-natural ingredients such as unbleached white flour, brown sugar, natural yeast, sea salt and filtered water. Instead of toasting or pan-grilling the buns, Nomvnom steams their buns as this is healthier and non-greasy.
