From Barcelona with Love

Posted: October 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

Hello everyone,

It has been a long time since I haven’t posted on this blog. As some of you might know, I left Beirut in September 2012, and stayed for a year in Paris. Last month, I moved to Barcelona, and I am planning to stay here until at least next year!

So yeah, it’s going to be hard reviewing the Rod’s, Shake Shack, or whatever new burger joint that opens in Beirut. But let’s take this opportunity to go global.

For the meantime, here’s a little wrap-up of the many burgers I have tried in the past few months…

We just spent a weekend in London, and, between the five the plates of fish & chips and the three gallons of beer we emptied in our stomach, we had to try Byron, a restaurant that is said to serve one of the best Hamburger in town by many locals.

Byron first set foot in London back in 2007, and now has nearly 30 restaurants in London, Oxford and Kent. They serve proper hamburgers, for approximately 8 £, excluding fries, as well as delicious milkshakes.

Byron London

 

I personally ordered the Byron. Between the buns you’ll find bacon (lots of it), aged cheddar, lettuce, fresh onions, tomato, and the secret Byron Sauce. Simple burger that works pretty well.Ingredients are fresh, bacon is top notch, buns are fluffy, meat is okay. We can’t expect the best meat from such a big chain.

As for the drinks, you can’t beat the oreo milk-shake, best I’ve ever had.

If you’re wondering where does the name Byron comes from, well the waiter actually told us the story, but we were too much hangover to understand anything. If anybody knows it, please comment!

 

PS: Seems like The Burger Tribune is featured in this month’s issue of The Gate Magazine, check it out!

One of the things I miss the most since I came back from California is In’n’Out Burger, that place where hamburgers taste like nowhere else, so simple, yet so good. If you have never heard of In’n’Out Burger, please read the review I’ve made some months ago on this blog (and then kill yourself for never having heard of that divine place).

Le Camion Qui Fume is one of the many new burger joints frenchies are crazy about. Quality ingredients, friendly atmosphere and cheap prices. However, there’s one thing about Le Camion Qui Fume that makes it different from anything else you can find in Paris. Despite its français-sounding name, it is actually a real Food Truck that looks like it came straight from Los Angeles. It flips burger all around town, with a very precise schedule.

I went there at 1PM, and I had to wait a good 40 minutes in the cold to get my burger…but what a burger. Hearing that girl at the cash-register with a strong Californian accent, I immediately remembered all the double-doubles I ate at In’n’Out that tasted so good. So, without checking the menu, I just asked her for a “double-double with fries”. She didn’t ask me any questions, and I got my double-double…

Wrapped in paper, my burger was there. Between the buns, two patties of pure fresh beef, pickles, caramelized onions, lettuce, and two slices of cheddar. One of the most basic burger recipe you can imagine, yet it was simply amazing.

If you happen to pass by Paris, this is a place I definitely recommend:
