Hans Im Glück
Hans Im Glück is a German Burger bar and a must visit for all you Instagram lovers because the place is so darn pretty! Following a consistent dreamy and foresty theme, they even went so far as to import their wood from Germany!
Located at the International Building, Hans Im Glück houses two areas. One for dining and the other for chugging them tasty cocktails (the bar). Both areas come with indoor and alfresco options.
The menu can be a little challenging for some (me included). Most of the items on the menu are German words and I had no inkling how to pronounce them. Stick to the good old “point and order”, you can’t go wrong there. That aside, even the menu is so pretty! It was designed like a fairy tale storybook that depicts the story of Hans and his eventful journey home.
At Hans Im Glück, on top of the usual Beef and Chicken Burgers, they have Vegan and Vegetarian Burgers too! These burgers come served from a choice of Sourdough Bun, Multigrain Bun or Naked (ironically this means it comes with no buns). Their buns are also produced by a local German Bakery by the way!
As for your sides, you can choose from Geleit (Mixed Salad), Krautknolle (German White Cabbage Salad), Fritten (Fries) or Susskartoffel-fritten (Sweet Potato Fries). I recommend the Krautknolle as it refreshes your palate with its sourness and makes every bite of your burger seem like a new one.
Birkenwald With Sourdough, $16
Beef and Mushroom Burger
You get the feeling that they’re all about enjoying food and also looking after your body. The Birkenwald is no exception with their Australian imported beef and contains 20% less fat than normal market standards. This is my favorite burger HANDS DOWN. You can never go wrong with beef and mushroom. Hans Im Glück ups their game by spreading that secret, slightly spicy, special sauce on the patty. I’m pretty sure there’s wasabi or mustard in there.
Geselle With Multigrain, $15
Chicken Breast And Bacon
I’ve always said that chicken breast is a hard meat to work with (literally). Just slightly overcooking it can make it dry and flaky. Fret not, the chicken here was tender and perfectly cooked. However, the bacon was just a tad dry. I don’t know about you but I can overlook the sinfulness of having bacon in my meal just because I ate this burger with the multigrain bun (and this is why I’m fat).
Wolpertinger Naked, $15
Spicy Patty With Aged Cheddar And Avocado Cream
This is a vegetarian burger and I’m honestly surprised at how much I liked it. The spicy patty is only slightly spicy so don’t get your hopes up spice lovers. But, it works really well with the secret sauce (they have it in ALL of their burgers). I especially loved the avocado cream. It was cool, refreshingly sour and very tasty.
Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?
You cannot find these German burgers ANYWHERE in Singapore. It’s a true German experience without having to leave the country! Hans Im Glück’s attention to detail is remarkable and burgers aside, they make some pretty great tasting cocktails too! Just remember to save yourself the embarrassment, point and order!
Till 5pm – Top up $5 for a hot/cold beverage and a side
From 5pm – Top up $15 for an alcoholic cocktail (yums) and a side
