10 Melhores hambúrguerias do Mundo

10 Best Burger House Around the World
A delicious hamburger can be had all across the globe.

1. Agadir Burger, Israel

This popular national chain started as a stand in Tel Aviv nearly 15 years ago. Today there are nine freestanding restaurants all over Israel. Agadir serves only four kinds of burger—a testament to its quality-over-quantity approach. Choose from plain (available in four sizes, starting with a slider-sized portion), mushroom-based veggie, chichi entrecôte and the Diana, a beef-and-lamb combo dressed up with aioli, tomato, spring onion and pickled lemon.

2. Fergburger, Queenstown, New Zealand

This New Zealand eatery opened way back in February 2001 in a tucked-away alley called Cow Lane, but its popularity among Kiwis propelled a move to a bigger space on Queenstown’s busiest thoroughfare four years later. It expanded again in 2011 with an adjacent bakery (Fergbaker), which turns out handmade buns. Fergburger adopts an evocative naming strategy. Little Lamby, for instance, is a prime New Zealand lamb burger with a tomato relish and mint jelly. The falafel-based vegetarian burger received a more controversial moniker: Bun Laden.

3. Flippin’ Burgers, Stockholm, Sweden

Jon Widegren’s burger hot spot celebrated its one-year anniversary in March, and the Swedes are still lining up to get a taste. The six burgers here (one is a veggie) are as plain as they come except for the Cricket, which is topped with cream cheese, pickled onion, caramelized onion and pickled jalapeño. But Widegren’s less-is-more style is firmly rooted in quality. The restaurant grinds its own meat (grass-fed if possible), which comes from small-scale local producers, a Stockholm bakery bakes the bread and the pickling is done in-house. His goal was to add some American burger tradition to the local food landscape, so don’t be surprised to find In-N-Out and Five Guys paraphernalia decorating the interior.

4. Hamborgarafabrikkan, Reykjavík, Iceland

This burger joint in Reykjavík’s Tower of Höfðatorg is known for the clever names of its sandwiches—and for how delicious they taste. Miss Reykjavík, for example, is a chicken burger topped with mango-yogurt salsa. The Rescue features toppings from pepperoni to mesquite sauce to green and red chiles. Translated, Hamborgarafabrikkan means “hamburger factory,” proven in the 15 different varieties on the menu.

5. Hamburg, Rotterdam, the Netherlands

This weeks-old butcher-shop-themed eatery in Rotterdam’s trendy Witte de Withstraat sources its 100-percent Black Angus beef from Ana Paula Ranch in Uruguay. The rest of the ingredients are local (buns from a nearby bakery, produce from a Rotterdam supplier), and the small, seven-burger menu—from beef to shrimp to pumpkin—orbits around secret-recipe sauces and a range of toppings for easy customization.

6. Hamburgueria do Bairro, Lisbon, Portugal

The Príncipe Real original of this now mini franchise in Lisbon. Now there are three—including outposts in São Bento (9 Rua dos Industriais) and Belém, —and they all attract the same local fanaticism for their 15 burgers, four of which are vegetarian. Unusual toppings (watercress, sweet cucumber, flamengo cheese) pack a flavorful punch, and the toasted buns are often sliced in three, a middle layer of bread separating the patty from the lettuce and tomato to prevent sogginess and allow the sandwiches to keep their lovely dome shape.

7. The Holyrood 9A, Edinburgh, Scotland

Twenty different burgers—ten beef, three chicken, three veggie, four “alternative”—served on homemade sourdough buns have made Holyrood 9A a popular favorite. The beef comes from the award-winning Simon Howie the Scottish Butcher, which worked with the restaurant to create an exclusive patty recipe. Craving a taste of Scotland? Holyrood 9A has a haggis burger (a proud member of the “alternative” collection) of traditional sheep’s pluck and a veggie version that packs in oatmeal, nuts, onion, carrots and black pepper.

8. La Burguesía, Santiago, Chile

Brothers René and Felipe Lillo, who opened La Burguesía in Santiago’s business district of Providencia, divide their burgers into two categories: gourmet and American. The five gourmets boast innovative flavor pairings, such as grilled shrimp with tomato confit. The American selection features sandwiches you might find in the United States but with a twist, like the Ají Verde (“green chile” in Spanish), which is garnished with both cheddar and mozzarella, lettuce, tomato and bacon-filled green chile.

9. Restaurant L’Anecdote, Montreal, Canada

L’Anecdote is a 30-year stalwart in the city’s trendy Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood. Designed to look like a diner from the 1950s, L’Anecdote offers a menu of just six burgers, but they all make a big impression. You could go with a tried-and-true double cheeseburger, but don’t pass up the more unexpected, such as the No. 4, a venison burger topped with smoked bison. Locals are also particularly big fans of L’Anecdote’s home-blended condiments like the spicy herbed mayo.

10. Royale Eatery, Cape Town, South Africa

Sascha and Hugo Berolsky, owners of Royale Eatery, will celebrate the restaurant’s tenth birthday in June. What started as a humble ten-table operation is now a three-floor empire that serves 50 different kinds of burgers at its original Long Street address. “I think the fact that a hamburger can be so versatile means there has to be a variety to suit personal taste,” Sascha explains. The encyclopedic menu will impress just about anyone, including vegetarians, who have 11 options to choose from.
