Honbo, the home-grown burger joint hailing from Hong Kong, marks its first overseas outpost in Singapore, nestled within the iconic CHIJMES.
Venue: 30 Victoria Street, #01-09 CHIJMES Singapore 187996
Opening Hours: Tue to Sun from 12 pm to 10 pm.
Inaugurated in 2017 along Sun Street in Wan Chai, Hong Kong, Honbo has continually demanded queues that snake through the streets. The burger joint has won several awards, including the Best Burger (Eater’s Choice) in Lifestyle Asia’s MMMs Awards 2021 and Bloomberg’s Best Burgers 2020, amongst more. Above all, it has cemented itself in the hearts and stomachs of both local and international gourmands, leading to the expansion of six thriving outlets across Hong Kong.
The burger brand arrives in Singapore, its first overseas outlet, nestled within the iconic CHIJMES. Families can now bite into Honbo's unique rendition of simple and straightforward American-style burgers crafted in-house by hand, from buns to patties, sauces, and toppings.
Fresh, Daily, In-house
Honbo’s beef is ground fresh daily in-house, free from preservatives, MSG, and additives, with each patty smashed on a flattop griddle upon order. To ensure consistency, Honbo exclusively imports its own USDA Double Gold Beef directly from Wisconsin, USA. Honbo generously employs only the whole chuck, brisket, and short rib in the making of its burgers, ensuring a perfect balance of flavours and textures.
Sandwiching its patties are house-made potato milk buns, also made fresh daily, from an all-natural exclusive recipe. The recipe gains an extra touch through using only hand-mashed potatoes prepared in-house. Honbo stands as the pioneer and patent owner of the potato milk bun recipe in Hong Kong.
The Hondo Signature
The HONBO Burger range is the essence of the burger joint, a signature dish derived from the brand’s take on old-school fast food style cheeseburger.
The HONBO ($18) comes with two crispy beef patties, cheese, pickles, onion, and house sauce. Multiply the fun with the HONBO 1.5 ($23) that comes with three patties and HONBO 2.0 ($28) that offers four patties. For those looking for a small snack, try the newly launched HONBO BB ($15) consisting of a single crispy beef patty, cheese, pickles, onion, and ketchup.
Honbo offers a thoughtfully curated menu serving up burgers of single, double, and triple patties, alongside beefless creations and a selection of sides and drinks. Be ready for Singapore-exclusive flavours too!
Go back to basics with the Hamburger ($15) of a single thick beef patty, honouring pure flavours with pickles, onion, lettuce, and house sauce. The Cheeseburger ($18) adds a slice of American cheese to the above winning equation and the Double Cheeseburger ($24) serves up double the patty and double the cheese. For voracious eaters, The Gold Standard ($28) will hit the spot with two thick beef patties and two slices of cheese, bolstered by Applewood smoked bacon before finishing off with pickles, onion, lettuce, and house sauce.
Beyond beef, try the Teriyaki Chicken Burger ($18), tender organic chicken sous vide for 4 hours, then pan-grilled and glazed with home-made teriyaki sauce, while the Impossible Burger ($22) appeals to meat-free diners with an Impossible patty complimented by Honbo’s vegan-friendly house sauce.
Limited Time Specials
The Soft Shell Crab Burger ($26) stands as the only burger served in a charcoal bun. Be treated to a whole soft shell crab, coated in Vodka batter and deep-fried to a perfect crisp.
Honbo’s selected list of sides add to the burger experience with items like Fries ($7), Coleslaw ($5), Chili Fries ($15), Sweet Potato Fries ($8), Chili Crunch Brussel Sprouts ($11), Buffalo Wings ($15 for 5pcs), and more.
