Interesting how burgers have become the comfort food during this stay-at-home period, to soothe your soul while filling your tummy.
Is it because they are easy to consume – just grab, hold and eat? Or that they provide the sense of familiarity yet with creative flavours?
I find that burgers are fuss-free to pick-up (colloquially dabao) and survive better than some food items after delivery. No doubt some can become slightly soggy, but most stay relatively in shape.
One thing for sure, there are many trendy and gourmet burger places popping up in Singapore. They also offer islandwide delivery via Oddle Eats so that we can skip the line to dine the best.
There is CARNE conceptualised by the Chef behind World’s Number One restaurant Mirazur; Burger Bench & Bar by celebrity Chef Willin Low which has made a surprise return after 10 years; and famed Burger & Lobster known for succulent Nebraskan burgers.
Whether you like them stuffed, savoury, hot, or piled high with toppings, here are 10 trendy gourmet burgers with islandwide delivery:

CARNE is the first international outpost of the innovative burger chain by lauded Argentine chef Mauro Colagreco.
His restaurant Mirazur in France is ranked Number One on World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019 and has 3 Michelin stars under its belt.
Coincidentally, his team of R&D chefs are currently in Singapore for the Mirazur pop-up, and has worked on improving the burger since opening days, plus the launch of a Singapore-exclusive burger.
The concept offers an all-day menu of made-to-order burgers, milkshakes, local craft beers and more, alongside a healthy breakfast selection.
What is noteworthy is that the burger joint has an eco-conscious ethos that ensures quality and sustainable production in every ingredient that stays true to its Argentinian counterpart.

To complete the burger is smoky bacon, grilled red onions, lettuce, jalapenos, pickles & house-made mayo-based dressing. Add $5 to top-up with fries and salad.
Something interesting would be the Bleu Cheeseburger ($21) featuring salty bleu cheese, sweet burnt onion marmalade, smoky bacon, crisp lettuce and house-made sauce. I like the rustic-looking bun which is specially made with walnut and raisin, adding some sweetness and crunch.

Burger Bench & Bar may have closed 10 years ago at Orchard Cineleisure, and it has made its return.
Many guests have asked Chef Willin Low to bring it back, and this burger brand is now resurrected as a delivery-only pop-up via Oddle Eats. (They may consider making it permanent depending on response.)
There are 4 burgers right now (3 beef + 1 chicken), with Sarawak Black Pepper Cheeseburger ($16.90), Japanese Curry Torikatsu Burger ($16.90), Caramelised Onions Cheeseburger ($16.90), and Sauté Mushrooms Cheeseburger ($16.90).
All the juicy patties you bite into are made by hand, while sauces are cooked with only the freshest ingredients.
My personal favourite is the Sarawak Black Pepper Cheeseburger ($16.90) comprising of handmade beef patty, Sarawak black pepper sauce, Bombay red onion and melted cheddar cheese.
Apparently, Chef Willin was experimenting with a thick black pepper sauce for another crab dish, and thought this worked great with the cheese burger. Fresh cut red onions were subsequently added for that bolt of refreshing flavour.
As to why Sarawak peppers, known for its concentrated flavour which results in a hot and pure bite, another chef who is also from Sarawak insisted on using it.
So far the sets have been selling quite well, and Chef Willin said it was encouraging for the team. Recommended is the Set Menu B ($46.10) with choice of any 2 burgers, 1 French Fries and 4 pieces of Har Jeong Chicken Wings.
The batter of the wings is developed deliberately for delivery so that they stay crunchy.
