Burger Bar is the latest addition to a growing Oslo burger scene. Designed by Snøhetta, this is not your usual burger joint. The place looks like something you would expect to find in Melbourne or New York, and has a quiet sense of coolness to it: the light bulbs from Frama being the obvious highlight.
The place oozes meat thanks to the open grill, and there’s only one vegetarian option on the menu, but the Holy Cow is tasty enough to be ordered time and time again. It comes with a white bun, a big portobello mushroom, caramelised red onions and soft brie. I would also recommend opting for a side of hand-cut fries and the chipotle sauce. But you can also choose between a few other sauces, like blue cheese or mushroom – a little more exciting than your normal ketchup, that’s for sure!
Burger Bar offers cocktails upstairs, and some unusual international beers downstairs. Personally I like the vibe on the ground floor the best, and would rather go elsewhere for my shaken drinks.
