One of the many most unloved foods due to thriving “junk food” restaurant chains is the delicious sandwich with minced meat accompanied by varied salads and diverse sauces. We are of course referring to hamburgers. It is usually a more economical and quick way of filling your stomach, but it doesn’t always have to be unhealthy. From here on in, we would like to restore the fame of hamburgers and thus suggest the top 3 hamburgers in Barcelona, because although they are typically an American food their contact with other cultures gives rise to some excellent quality products.
Top 3 Hamburgers in Barcelona
For us the number one on our list is Bacoa, located on Carrer de Colomines, juts behind the modern market of Santa Catarina. This hamburger joint has become famous in an impressive short space of time. The owner the Australian Brad Ainsworth wanted to open a bar where they offered the best hamburgers at reasonable prices. And he certainly did it! His hamburgers contain 100% organic beef, without any additives, organic bread, home made sauces and various combinations that make this hamburger the best that we have tried if not in our lives, but years. Whether it’s a classic hamburger with 250 grams of beef accompanied by a homemade sauce, tomato, lettuce, and onion; or the Manchega, which comprises semi-cured manchego cheese, caramelised onion, lettuce and tomato; the Swiss comprising potato rosti, gruyere cheese, tomato and onion; the Japanese with teriyaki sauce and Japanese mayonnaise; or finally the Bacoa comprising two 150g hamburgers each one accompanied by manchego cheese, caramelised onion, tomato and lettuce finished off with the sauce of the day, you won’t be disappointed. Prices range from 4.50 euros up to 6.50 euros……definitely not one to miss if you’re a fan of this excellent sandwich, where not only do they offer excellent hamburgers but various barbecued meats with different sauces and salads to the delight of all those that cross the threshold of this small but minimalist bar where emphasis is put on the quality of the food on offer.
We continue on our merry hamburger route paying special attention to artisan, organic and supreme quality products. Thus, we would also like to mention the Hamburger Bar “La Burg” located on 55, Passeig. Sant Joan Bosco in the Saint Gervasi district. It’s not as central as the last bar however, it is definitely worth paying a visit to try what we consider another one of the best hamburgers in Barcelona. Hamburgers using meat from pure race parda-alpina cows originating from Switzerland and reared in León accompanied by delicious sauces and the highest quality raw materials are served here; such as their “fresca” hamburger containing mozzarella cheese and basil sauce or mushrooms with caramelised onions, and mushrooms with mushroom sauce; or the Mexican with beans, tomato sauce, guacamole and onion, and even a vegetable burger containing seitan (wheat gluten meat alternative) accompanied by tomato and lettuce, amongst the combination of approximately ten different burgers on offer much to the delight of the most demanding palates. Again, another definite stop for all fans of this delicious dish.
And finally the third in our top 3 list, the most classic of the classic and which we couldn’t leave out, is the Pim Pam Burger. Situated in the heart of the Borne district on 4, Carrer/Sabateret, this burger bar has gained a well-deserved reputation over the years. Although, they do not offer such original combinations like in the previous two recommendations, they do offer classic burgers with egg, bacon, and all types of salads and sauces, guaranteed to please! Authentic and pure American style burgers, with organic beef (150 or 200g) accompanied by your favourite ingredients such as cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, egg, or for those that prefer it goats cheese and Roquefort. In addition, the chips that they serve are 100% natural, none of these frozen chips. Thus, another gastronomic experience of the considered “junk food”, but which achieves maximum levels of quality, flavour and excellence in these burger bars.
