And just when you think you have tasted all burgers and be honest, they all taste the same… I discovered Gollem – Beers & Burgers bar in the city center. I can’t remember how many times I said ‘mmmmm … so good’.
They are known as a specialized beer bar (they have more than 400 beers and 30 draft beers). But take your time to chose a burger from their tasty menu.
I shared 2 burgers: ‘Pulled pork’ and ‘Danish burger with blue cheese’. They were both served on the special soft bread. Gollem has many special burgers, all worth a try.
It was the first time I actually could eat a burger out of my hand (normally they are too huge, so definitely a plus for me). But don’t be fooled, they are big!
Just want a snack? Ask for the Gollem snack-plate. But don’t forget your beer.
From the outside, the place is not so inviting, but the inside is worth taking a look. If you look at the walls, you will notice many different types of drawn Gollem creatures.
Nice to know: The name Gollem is based on the little creature in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ books, who is known for his famous quote “My precious”.
During this sunny period, when all tourist are wandering through Anwerp, the terrace of Gollem is an ideal place to check-out the moving crowd.
Personal tip: Don’t be driven away about the tourist area, this is really a local place, ready for you discovery.
