Let’s face it: some foods just don’t deliver as well as others, and no amount of fussing about with plastic containers and insulated keep-warm bags is going to change that. That doesn’t apply to street-food staples that are designed for a little travelling in mind – enter the burger. Get it for delivery or takeaway now, especially since it is International Burger Day today.
The journey home gives some time for the juices from the patty to soak into the bun, all while the trapped heat brings every adornment, from pickled jalapenos to caramelised onions up to temperature for a perfectly gooey mess. All said, we’ve also included some slightly more refined variants of the classic if that’s more up your alley.
That includes the delicious sliders crafted by Ginger’s Vincent Aw and Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant’s Zeng Feng. To celebrate the special day, the two chefs heading their respective restaurants at Parkroyal on Beach Road collaborated to create a duo of miniature burgers that best capture their respective strengths. Look forward to a locally-themed five-spice beef burger topped with homemade achar, served alongside a Sichuan mala chicken burger beneath a fiery potato layer and fresh greens. The burger set is available here.
The kicker is that you won’t have to deal with any flimsy plastic cutlery either (although you might want to keep a napkin or three handy). Here’s our pick of the best burgers on International Burger Day that prove why the dish is perfect option for delivery and takeaway – so much so that we’d agree that it really does deserve a day all to itself.
