THE BEST HAMBURGERS IN PARIS

We start the list with suggestions of the best hamburgers in Paris with a typical American restaurant. This is Breakfast in America, founded by Craig Carlson of Connecticut. Craig studied and worked in France several times and always missed his traditional American breakfast. That is why it now offers to Parisians and tourists a selection of spectacular hamburgers served in restaurants decorated like American diners. What started as a small and personal project now has become three restaurants in different places in Paris and hordes of hungry visitors who literally queue at their doors.
Paris-New York is our second suggestion if you are looking for the best hamburgers in Paris. This modern place full of young people offers you lovingly prepared burgers and locally produced meat. The philosophy of Paris-New York is to always offer the best quality to the customers, since they are sure that this is the only way to make them come back. And if you have more desire for meat, they have just opened Paris-Texas, a restaurant of grilled meat, the American way. In both restaurants you can also take a typical American brunch and both open seven days a week.

Le Camion Qui Fume started out as a food truck, as its name suggests. But the quality of the hamburgers and the great demand have made that also appear a fixed restaurant with this name. Those that are probably the best burgers in Paris have as secret a handmade bakery bread, top quality meat and real and natural cheddar cheeses, as well as a Californian founder, Kristin Frederick. You can choose to take them sitting in the restaurant or chase the trucks that each day drive through a different part of Paris. If you want to catch them you will have to stay tuned to the social networks of Le Camion Qui Fume, since they announce the routes with a few days in advance.
HAMBURGERS YOU MUST TRY IN BARCELONA
The first hamburger that you cannot miss in Barcelona is at the Santa Burg. This restaurant has two branches, one in the Sants district and another in L'Eixample. Here you can taste hamburgers with prime meat in a local with cosmopolitan, modern, dynamic and international ambient. You can create your own hamburger by choosing the bread, the type of meat and the garnishes that you like best to take the perfect hamburger. In addition, the Santa Burg has a wide variety of international beers and some unique artisan varieties.

La Royale has the best hamburgers in Barcelona for the gourmets. Its chef Paco Pérez has five Michelin stars and his dishes will delight even the most exquisite palates. The modern décor and outdoor eating terrace complete the top quality hamburgers. As Paco Pérez himself says, when he conceived the idea of this restaurant he thought of a hamburger bar where he could take his children. It is therefore the perfect place for groups of friends and families. In addition, La Royale specializes in cocktails and combinations, so you can accompany your burger with a premium gin and tonic.
El Filete Ruso is the latest proposal from our list of the best hamburgers in Barcelona, but it’s far from being the worst. This is a restaurant with Slow Food philosophy. Here the quality of the products is of vital importance, just as the sustainability of everything that surrounds them. All the meat of this restaurant is of ecological origin and comes from a family farm in the Catalan Pyrenees. They also have a wine list that respects the Slow Food philosophy and a small selection of handcrafted beers.
