In the world of hamburgers, the line between fast food and gourmet restaurants is often thinner than we care to admit. From time to time, places like Le Burger remind us that putting labels is an empty exercise, and that what really matters is ultimately just how satisfying an experience is.
When we walked into Die Burgermacher we thought we were about to spend a normal evening, enjoying a promising burger in a nice-looking parlor. But at soon as we received our orders we realized that we had jumped into some sort of cosmic anomaly and that our table was right at the intersection of two parallel universes.
The first world eats too much meat. In some cases, we eat it in such form and quality that it barely qualifies as meat, and we are left wondering whether it’s really worth the life of an animal and the impact on the environment. In some other cases, on the other hand, it is respected and elevated in such a way that we truly perceive its value as a food. Flatschers is without doubt one of the latter cases.
From the moment you step into the door of The Burger Bar you start feeling betrayed in your expectations, and one adjective starts resonating in your head right away: generic.
Popcorn stands! Neon lights! Little cleaver-shaped knives! Don’t worry, Mama und der Bulle is not a Theme Park - but rest assured: with its fun but finely designed atmosphere and its excellent burgers, it’ll give you a ride you won’t forget.
When a new burger restaurant opens in town we can’t help but asking ourselves the usual questions: does it bring anything new to the scene? Is it a game changer? Or is it at least good enough to justify its own existence in a market that gets more crowded by the day? SalzBurger is definitely not a game changer and might not bring anything radically new to the scene, but it undoubtedly meets all the requirements for a very good burger.
