The Raclette Brgr with Cheese fries at Brgrco
Since Burger Day was on May 28, I thought of sharing with you the list of burgers that I usually crave in Lebanon. The burgers were selected from restaurants, burger joints, diners and fast food chains that I’ve been to in the past years.
1- The Butcher’s Cut at Brgrco
This 6 Oz Hussein Hadid signature burger is one of the best burgers I’ve had in Lebanon. I usually order it with mature English cheddar on top and cheese fries on the side.
2- Gourmet Burger at Eau de Vie – Phoenicia Hotel
I wasn’t expecting to see a burger on Eau De Vie’s menu but their 50,000LL gourmet burger is quite amazing.
3- The Cheeseburger at Happy Prince – Mar Mikhail
Happy Prince’s burger is a must-have and comes in limited quantities. Read my review [Here].
4- Swiss’N’Mushroom Burger at Classic Burger Joint
Even though I find their burgers a bit bulky, the Swiss’N’Mushroom is a great burger and my favorite at CBJ.
5- Fit’N’Burger At Roadster Diner
The Fit’N’Burger was introduced as part of Roadster’s light menu and is a great burger. It contains grilled patty, rocket leaves, grilled onions, grilled tomatoes, grilled fresh mushrooms and a Light Homestyle sauce. I couldn’t find a picture to be honest so I borrowed one from Roadster’s Facebook page.
6- Spiel Mozzarella Burger at Crepaway
This has been Crepaway’s signature burger for years. It comes with a thick chunk of deep-fried mozzarella.
7- Shack Stack at Shake Shack
The Shack Stack is a cheeseburger and a ‘shroom burger topped with lettuce, tomato and ShakeSauce. Get the awesome Shake Shack’s cheese fries as well.
8- Ferdi burger at Ferdinand – Hamra
Meat patty, bacon and blueberry jam on top. Add to that a great bun and you have an awesome burger!
9- Cheese Burgers at McDonald’s
I usually order them plain without the ketchup and onions and get McDonald’s BBQ sauce and dip them in it.
10- Big King XXL at Burger King
That’s the only burger I have at Burger King.
I am sure there are other burgers that I should try but these are the ones that first came to my mind and that I’ve had quite a few times in the past years (Except the Eau De vie one). Of course I sometimes miss having these big bulky Lebanese burgers with coleslaw and fries but I can’t think of any decent snack that makes them these days. I remember a small place called Khoury Inn in Dekwaneh that made good Lebanese burgers but I am not sure if it’s still open.
