Zipp Burger & Pasta: Handmade 150g Beef & Fried Pork Patty Burgers at Amoy St

We love sharing good food recommendations with you, but for now, keep these recommendations as bookmarks—visit them only when the COVID-19 situation ends. Stay safe!

If there’s one thing that really gets my appetite going, it’s a hunk of a juicy, hearty burger. From the beloved McSpicy, to favourites like Shake Shack and Five Guys, it’s such a delight to sink my teeth into mouthwatering burgers.

Some days, though, you don’t want fancy burgers going for S$15 a pop. You just want a no-frills, down-to-earth burger. Patty, bun, condiments—the three most important aspects that make or break a burger.

Craving cheap but good burgers, I was delighted to discover Zipp Burger & Pasta, located at Amoy Street Food Centre.

It’s hard to find affordable meal options in the CBD, but I daresay Zipp Burger & Pasta has pulled it off. Helmed by three young hawkers, this Western stall offers burgers and pasta dishes, together with sides of fries and meatballs.

And not just any burgers—handmade burgers, with each patty marinated and hand-moulded from scratch. If there’s any burger where you can taste the labour of love, it’s here.

During the ‘Circuit Breaker’ period, aside from their usual signature items, Zipp Burger & Pasta has a rotational menu that’s available on their Facebook. They offer island-wide delivery too, so you can place your order at +65 9656 6865 or, no matter where you are in Singapore.

I decided to try a few of the dishes available from Zipp Burger & Pasta.

Starting off strong with the Hamburger (S$5.70/single patty, S$8.70/double patty), this was a burger that I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into.

Even though I got the single patty burger, the 150g handmade patty was already so thick that it took a little effort to fit in my mouth—I can hardly imagine what the double patty would be like!

Succulent, juicy, and bursting with meaty flavour, the patty was the star of the dish. The cheese was also perfectly melted, and together with the savoury, mouthwatering special sauce, this was truly irresistible.

If you’re not a fan of beef, then you can get the Pork Burger (S$5.70/single patty, S$8.70/double patty). Now, this was something special: the thick slab of pork patty was fried to golden perfection.

Usually, I’d be a tad worried when it comes to fried patties—they tend to dry out a little. Luckily, my fears were unfounded with Zipp Burger and Pasta. Even though the pork patty was encased by a crispy outer layer, the meat inside was juicy and bursting with flavour.

Accompanied by tomatoes, onions, lettuce and a special sauce, the patty was breaded in a golden crust. Bits of onion and garlic were embedded in the patty too, adding punchy flavours to the burger. The toasted bun certainly tied the burger together nicely.

For those who prefer more carb-heavy dishes, you can go for the Smoked Duck Aglio Olio (S$7.70). Unfortunately, pasta dishes like aglio olio tend not to travel well—while pasta was cooked till al dente, the delivery process caused it to dry out a bit. Flecked with chilli bits, the pasta still packed a decent amount of flavour.

I really liked the smoked duck slices, of which there was a decent portion. Fattier and richer than chicken, Zipp Burger’s rendition was fairly juicy, which somewhat made up for the drier pasta.

For sides, you can go for meatballs or fries. Zipp Burger & Pasta offers Beef Balls (S$4 for six) and Pork Balls (S$4 for 6), or if you can’t decide, get the best of both worlds with the Mixed Balls (S$4 for three beef and three pork).

I decided to get the Mixed Balls so that I could try a bit of both. Lightly breaded, these meatballs came in a paper bag so you can easily pop them into your mouth. And trust me, these were moreish and addictive.

The pork meatballs reminded me of bite-sized portions of the pork patty. A thin brittle layer of crunch on the outside, and succulent, juicy meat on the inside.

For those who prefer stronger flavours, the beef meatballs held more gamey flavour, with the same delicious tender, juicy texture as the beef patty.

I also got to try their Truffle Fries (S$5.20) and Cheese Fries (S$5.20), which were both pretty solid versions of these popular fries dishes. While fries aren’t usually a good choice for delivery—since they get soggy quite quickly—Zipp Burger & Pasta actually managed to keep its fries relatively crisp.

Truffle lovers will appreciate the Truffle Fries, with the familiar earthy fragrance. The Cheese Fries was no slouch either, with a generous topping of nacho cheese and mayo. Comfort food at its best!
