'Beaver Brewing Company' Review

Dam Good

There’s a unique satisfaction in having a dinner that matches pretty much perfectly your expectations. Beaver Brewing Company is one of those rare cases where you know exactly what you are going to get without any surprises: freshly brewed beer and fair burgers.

The menu might be one or two options too long, and it might lack some more traditional choices (no plain cheeseburger in sight), but it has character without being uselessly over the top. If we wanted to be picky, we would say that The Madness burger was not so mad after all, with an interesting double-textured onion feature but an almost undetectable protagonist (bacon jam). We would say that the bacon in the Bacon Burger was indeed good, but also that the fried egg was marginally relevant. We could point out a number of minor flaws, but you know what? Instead we will spend the rest of this review acknowledging that no matter how imperfect, we did enjoy our dinner, thanks to the easy-going and welcoming atmosphere and the good homemade burgers, hardly mind-blowing but in many ways better than others we had in more assuming places.

Beaver Brewing Company promises a genuine experience without trying to conceal its limits, eventually delivering on such promise with refreshing honesty.

'Das Eduard' Review

Das Eduard is a cosy bar with very friendly service, generally good kitchen and a couple of interesting burgers in the menu. Even though, admittedly, on some unlucky days you might receive an overtoasted bun or an overcooked patty, most of the times you will likely enjoy the same surprising experience that won us over.

Sprichst du Burger?

In the heart of Schweizergarten there is a (not so) little paradise for carnivores. Klein Steiermark’s menu boasts a number of Austrian classic and seasonal dishes, a legendary rack of spare ribs and exactly one burger that, alone, could give a hard time to many of the specialized restaurants in town.

'Burger Bros The Mall' Review
Bro, Hit the Breaks

It’s not enough to serve a great burger to be a great burger restaurant. It’s not enough to throw in the cool logo, the predictable cow statues, the wooden tables and the design lights. Burger Bros The Mall serves delicious burgers, but forgets the essential ingredient: passion.
