HANS IM GLÜCK: Healthy Gourmet Burger Restaurant (Vegan-friendly)

Calling all Health-conscious diners, here’s a new healthy gourmet restaurant (vegan-friendly too!) where you can enjoy decent German meat-free burgers. HANS IM GLÜCK has opened its latest gourmet burger grill restaurant in Singapore, along bustling Orchard Road. It is Germany’s most celebrated gourmet burger grill chain and this is their 50th outlet! Fret not, they also often meat-based burgers which are pretty legit too.

It’s A Fairytale

The name of this German gourmet burger chain is inspired by a well-loved tale, Hans Im Glück. In the story, Simple Hans was an optimistic boy who has no qualms about losing your possessions. He finds joy in having nothing over his shoulders to weigh him down. I would say that he is the modern minimalist of today; materialism doesn’t always bring you happiness.

Into the Woods

The first thing you’ll notice upon entering the restaurant is the tall birch trees that installed from floor to ceiling. It is indeed quite refreshing to be entering a space inspired by the elements of nature. Their gourmet burgers are also made using high-quality, sustainable produce and ingredients. It appeals to health-conscious diners like myself, so this is a health-conscious restaurant worth checking out.

For the Health-conscious Diners

The founder Their menu features a good range of both meat-based and meatless gourmet burgers. You have a choice between sourdough or multigrain buns. Their multigrain bread has high nutritional content. Also, it is sugar-free and low in calories.

If you want to go carb-free, you can opt for a ‘naked burger’ where the patties are wrapped in lettuce instead of buns. They also use 100% beef or chicken for their meat-based burger patties, and that explains why their patties are so juicy, dense and tender.

Tasty gourmet options for vegans

The co-founder of this restaurant, Gunilla Hirschberger, is a vegan herself so you can presume that there is going to be a good variety of vegan gourmet burgers offered at the restaurant. Even their recipes for their sauces are also developed without milk and eggs. I was so excited when I saw that they provide Vegan mayo!

We tried several burgers from their meat to vegan burgers. I prefer their vegetarian and vegan burgers because their meatless patties were very flavourful and tasty. Their multigrain bread makes perfect burger buns. Their chicken burgers were excellent as well.

Beverages

There’s also a bar at the restaurant which serves German beer, cocktails and other alcoholics drinks.

Desserts

We tried three of their desserts which come with some whipped cream and a scoop of ice cream. I enjoyed their Warm glazed Apple Tart served with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. However, I have to say that they perform better with their gourmet burgers than desserts.
