Benvenuti a burgherlandia!
So, you’re in the mood for a juicy American style burger huh? The bistecca fiorentina isn’t cutting it for you anymore?
I’ve been on a burger hunt with my husband for a while and wanted to share our intense research with you hungry readers. Here’s my ongoing list ending with the grand mamma burger at the finale.
Best Burgers in Florence
4. Lungarno 23
I recommend this place more for the atmosphere, but they do have burgers which is not a commonality here in Florence. Sometimes you gotta get what you can get. The time I ate here was with friends (read Gillian’s review!), so I had a great time and enjoyed the views and the walk to and from dinner since it’s on the river…which explains the name of the place.
The burgers are made from Chianina meat, which is the oldest breed of cattle in the world and well-known for its high quality and nutritional value. It was decent, perfectly cooked medium rare and the fries were AMAZING. The ambiance didn’t feel like a burger joint, since it’s no greasy spoon.
Go with a hot date and stay for the fries, don’t forget to top your Chianina off with truffles!
This colorful brew pub makes the list for their burgers but also their beer!! I met up with a brilliant foodie blogger and have since frequented with friends because of their beer and heavy bar food.
The burgers are good, big and juicy. Don’t forget their local beer on tap.
Go if you’re a student or if you want to feel young again!
Amazing. I have never had a burger and thought to myself “holy god, this piece of meat is perfectly salted!” It’s a weird thought, but seriously the patties are perfectly salted and even better…the bread is great. Buns are important!
Go crazy with the menu. Everything is delicious and the meat tends to be cooked according to the temperature you prefer. The only drawback is that if you want a thick juicy burger you’ll have to settle for a double patty, each patty being about 3/4in thick. Still great when rare!
Go for the buns and stay for the unconventional toppings!
Oh ya. This humburgheria should actually be called Il Rei or Dio because Il Principe just doesn’t give it justice.
Remember Fuddruckers? They had one in Miami and there seems to be many across the States. Well, it reminds me of that…a little place in heaven where you can decide the grams of your burger and in this case even they type of meat.
You get to check a list on a little paper of all the decadent toppings you want. For example, gorge on a rare Argentinian Angus burger topped with um let’s say gorgonzola or bacon…wait, grilled zucchini and fontina…just have a look at Il Principe’s menu for yourself. Please don’t drool on your screen.
Go after you’ve spent 100€ on sushi and are still hungry!
Any that perk you up? What burger joint should I try next?
P.S. If you want to try something a bit different, order the Sushi del Chianti at Club House, it’s the best thing on their menu…besides their cheesecake! AND I also recommend this two full day foodie list to eat like a true Florentine!
