The Goodburger is a food truck and the first and only place in Singapore that serves an exclusively “Impossible” menu. Started by Ken Ming Lee and Sophia Shen, the couple’s mission is not just to offer a good burger, but use their platform to do good.
“We believe that if you come into this world, you shouldn’t leave it worst off.”, shared Sophia. “A lot of people ask us directly, “Are you selling health food?”, but we’re not trying to hard-sell anything, rather, offer a more conscious option.”
The Impossible Burger is no stranger to all of us by now, but not all Impossible Burgers are the same.
Each of the patties at The Goodburger uses 100% impossible “meat” with no fillers. With four burger choices, sides and even vegan options for their burgers, a visit to this food truck is an option to consider if looking for a sustainable way to satisfy a burger craving.
The Classic Burger, as its name suggests, is the familiar combination of a brioche bun, patty, sautéed onions, pickles and cheese, not forgetting the side of fries. The patty was well seasoned and juicy, cooked to a medium-rare consistency. Overall it was a savoury and delicious burger. While I usually pick out my pickles in burgers, The Goodburger’s house-made pickles are worth keeping in for the added punch of flavour.
The option which surprised me was the vegan version of The Classic. Too often when something is a “vegan option”, it usually indicates that any non-vegan products are simply removed from the dish and charged at double the price.
However, in the case of The Goodburger, all the burgers on the menu can be made vegan. This also means that all components of the burger, from the patty to the cheese and the sauce are swapped out for a vegan option.
Although the vegan Classic burger was a little different aesthetically, it was still as flavourful and delicious. I especially liked the vegan cheese, which is an ingredient that is hard to get right in most vegan dishes.
The Black Tie
If you’re especially hungry, or you just want the feeling of biting into a juicy patty, The Goodburger has double patty options. The patties are cooked to medium consistency and topped with American cheddar slices with fresh rocket and truffle aioli. The taste of truffle was pretty distinct and I enjoyed the texture of having a double patty.
One Night In Bangkok
The Goodburger team’s favourite is inspired by Thai flavours. However, the owners are careful to ensure that it was not “just Tom Yam”. This burger packs quite a hit of heat in the patty with various spices as well as a creamy onion sauce with hints of lemongrass and turmeric.
Who doesn’t love a happy day? The Goodburger’s Happy Days Impossible burger is the newest addition to the menu. Closest to the Classic, the Happy Days burger comes with sweet, smoky BBQ sauce and onion rings in the burger. Delish!
If you’re looking for some finger food to munch on, The Goodburger also serves up some plant-based nuggets which are apparently quite a hit with the little ones.
