In Dutch the word ‘Burgertrut’, has a negative meaning (in short, burgertrut is a conservative, abiding by the rules, stiff person) but in this case, it’s a great play on words as this (nomadic) place serves great burgers!
I say “nomadic” because Burgertrut has moved around town about 3 times already, but their latest spot can’t be more central as it is located near the Markthal at the back part, well, depending on which side you come from (check the Markthal article). We are not sure how long they will be able to reside at the Hang location but while they are there, do grab a bite or a drink.
Burgertrut is part of Roodkapje.org and all profits go to support their arts and music program, so this gives you a very good reason to eat here!
The menu offers tasty vegan, veggie or organic beef burgers, soups, salads and scrumptious homemade cakes. My favourite is the Kapsalon made of seitan and loaded up with veggies and cheese, yum!
(The “Kapsalon” dish is another story and ‘invented’ here in Rotterdam: Read the Wiki explanation. It’s great after-clubbing grub!)
Check their specials on the wall > The Buggaboo with Buffalo larvae, locust and tofu burger is the new special burger !
If you’re not too hungry, there are small side dishes available.
As for thirsty people, there’s beer, wine, Fritz Kola and John Lemon soft drinks, tea and coffee.
Sit yourself down on the kitsch red sofa and come hang at Hang 5!
