The Gourmet Hamburger. A common find in Barcelona these days. There are some really good ones out there too. However, at times it begins to become a bit repetitive. That is, until you discover the endless recipes of Oval.
With a beautiful stripped back interior design, Oval can be found in the hip, modern hub of Eixample, on Carrer Valencia. The space is instantly a pleasant place to be, gathered around a nice wooden table with others. When the place really fills up you might be relocated to eating at the bar, but when busy, the lively atmosphere and energy of the place can’t be beaten.
Let’s get to the core of why you’re here though. Oval offer burgers, and there really is a lot on offer here. With an entirely customisable menu and a wide range of ingredients to choose from, the number of potential masterpieces you can create here is almost infinite. You take a menu and tick off what you’d like at each level of the burger, whether that be the normal stuff or some of the more experimental cheeses with chilli, cabbage, peanut butter and a hard-boiled egg on top. (Don’t do that.)
The fun is in trying something new, but either way, you can rely on the chefs to provide a high-quality and nicely presented dish. There’s also some great nachos and tasty beers, so try it out as soon as you can!
