Burgers. Together with a bunch a friends, I claim to be an expert when it comes to making, eating and philosophizing about burgers. I tried them in (check links) Barcelona, London, Amsterdam and many in Rotterdam. Conclusion, home sweet home. Hamburg in Rotterdam beats them all.
Hamburg is located on the Witte de With so if you are discovering Rotterdam like a local you will be in the neighborhood for sure. Time to talk about the burger. Fresh ingredients, 100% all-natural Dutch prime beef, prepared on a smoking hot grill, served on a crispy bun. If you are a real meat lover then don’t even look at the menu, follow my advice and order “De Hamburg”, 270 grams of happiness. If you love meat but can’t eat half a cow you can also get a slightly smaller burger, like the Cheeseburger. Just to keep things in balance. Don’t forget to order a beer too, ask the waiter to get to know the perfect combo. They serve a range of local brewed beers changing each month. So at least visit Hamburg once a month.
In my enthusiasm about the burger I almost forgot to write about the atmosphere. The smell, the furniture and of course the person with the best job ever: the guy flipping those lovely burgers. It all feels, looks and most importantly, tastes great. This is not just a great burger joint because it happens to be located in Rotterdam, they truly serve the best.
