The burger boom took a little while longer to make a bang in Barcelona but they are sure catching up with some truly quality meaty pit stops. We headed to Kiosko in the Barrio Born, for burger at a joint that Barcelona must be proud of.
Ideally situated in the city: Midway between the cosmopolitan area of Born – brimming with artisan boutiques, bars and restaurants and the main beach of Barcelonetta; Kiosko offers hungry Barcelona revellers an appetising fast food option. There is a large menu to choose from, quality ingredients from start to finish and lovely smokey barbecue flavours due to the special grill used to cook each burger, fresh on the spot.
Expect: Lovely big messy burgers, lots of choice on the menu and the ability to make your burger even more to your taste, with a choice of homemade salsas and salts.
We loved the presentation on ‘sheets of newspaper’ and thought ‘plastic’ cups made from 100% biodegradable ingredients was genius. This opened our eyes to a great alternative out there. We are looking to source these for our events and will be encouraging all our clients (that might potentially like to use plastic cups for their events) to use these/ or a similar variety.
Other burgers worth checking out in Barcelona: Pim Pam Burger (been around for a while and considered to be one of the best casual –street/ no frills style burgers in the city). Heart burger – more for its healthy angle and organic offerings. If you are drinking in one of the Raval’s urban cocktail dens and need more than tapas to soak up the spirits, then you are either already in Betty Fords or you need to head there; for both top-notch cocktails and a big sloppy burger.
The Barcelona culinary landscape doesn’t seem to change as fast as London but with an impressive amount of world-class restaurants, a supreme gastronomic reputation and tapas coming out of its ears…there is always something on the edible landscape worth investigating.
