For those tired of mainstream Western fare, here’s something new and unconventional to tickle your tastebuds.

HamBaoBao — which means “hamburger” in Chinese —  is a hawker stall at Beauty World Hawker Centre selling burgers with a twist.

Spiced pulled pork, buah keluak, and more

The stall’s burgers are affordably priced, with prices ranging from S$5 – S$5.50 per serving.

Fries are an additional S$1.50, while extra cheese or bacon comes at S0$.70.

Here’s a look at their menu:

Unique flavours

Two of HamBaoBao’s most interesting burgers appear to be the Crispy Pork Belly Burger and the Buah Keluak Burger.

The Crispy Pork Belly Burger features thick cuts of pork belly and fresh cucumber, enclosed by fluffy buns.

Here are some photos for you to drool over.

Crispy Pork Belly + Fairy Fries With a choice of five burgers that cost no more than $5 each, Hambaobao located in Beauty World Food Centre stands out quite a bit from its neighbouring stalls (be it the menu or the stall front). The burger joint offers no-frills burgers but a few unusual options on the menu that is with an Asian twist. The Crispy Pork Belly burger ($4.50) came with slices of crunchy Japanese cucumber, toasted buns, tender meat and really crispy crackling skin, completed with a slight kick from the mustard sauce. Beware the must-try hand cut Fairy Fries ($1 with a burger and $1.50 a la carte) is very addictive! #burpple #burpplesg #throwback #hambaobaosg #sgfood #sgfoodie #hawkerfood #hambaobao #fries #burger #frenchfries #porkbelly #burgers

On the other hand, the Ayam Buah Keluak Burger has a patty made from buah keluak and minced chicken.

The slightly bitter taste of buah keluak is balanced out by a dollop of chap chye (braised mixed vegetables) on top of the patty.

Looks good.

The queue, however, can get quite long, so be prepared to wait if you’re heading down.
