by Evan Mua and Christabel Tan

When we were kids, McDonald’s fuss-free burgers were the ultimate indulgences in life. Even now that we’ve grown up, nothing quite beats chowing down on a juicy beef patty embraced between two fluffy brioche buns — simply heaven.

Many gourmet burger joints have popped up in recent years, especially with the booming popularity of international franchises like Shake Shack and Five Guys. And these burgers range from super wallet-friendly to luxuriously crafted creations.

If you’re curious where you can get a smashing good burger that’s not from the popular fast food joints, here’s a list to help you satisfy those cravings.
