20 X best burgers in Amsterdam to test one by one

Le Smash

Anyone who knows the concept of a smash burger will not want anything else. A smash burger is placed as a round ball of minced meat on a piping hot plate and then flattened. It creates a chemical process that makes the burger crispier and tastier than any other. At Le Smash, they have elevated this method to a real art.

At Janana on Willem de Zwijgerlaan, smash burgers are also the name of the game. What makes Janana extra special is that they also sell vegetarian variants of this burger, based on soy. And believe us: you have never tasted anything like this before.

Bar Bonnie

Bar Bonnie is a favorite with many Amsterdam residents, not just because of the good atmosphere and potential for dancing during the weekend. No, their excellent burgers are just as worth the detour. The menu features two types of smash burgers, which are becoming increasingly popular in our country. For your normal appetite, choose the ‘regular’ cheeseburger, and for your big appetite, there is the double cheeseburger.

Bij het altijd gezellige Polly Goudvisch draait het niet per se om het eten, maar eerder om de gezelligheid. Dat wil niet zeggen dat het diner er niet toe doet, want onder andere de burgers die ze serveren zijn overheerlijk. Nóg een reden voor een bezoek, dus.
