The 5 best places for a tasty burger in Rotterdam
1) Ter Marsch & Co
The burgers, steaks, bacon and the homemade sauces of Ter Marsch & Co might be slightly more expensive than at your regular burger place, but they are also of superior quality. The ‘Burgeresse’ burger was even voted best national burger of 2015, and includes Scottish angus beef, Japanese Wagyu and pancetta. The bar is open until late on Fridays and Saturdays.
This slightly arty, easy-going and affordable burger joint was initiated by Roodkapje cultural centre. So your cash will be used to support the arts! The menu includes organic, vegetarian and vegan burgers, and even a vegetarian ‘kapsalon’ (a local treat, made of French fries, shoarma meat and cheese). Burgertrut has already changed locations several times. Check the website for the restaurant’s current address.
They were among the first restaurants of the recent hamburger wave that swept Rotterdam (in particular the Witte de With area), and Hamburg hasn’t changed much since opening in 2014. The ingredients are fresh and of high quality, the setting is basic. The menu also includes vegetarian options.
Pink and turquoise walls and furniture, black and white tiles, strawberry milkshakes: visiting Gracy’s feels like travelling back in time to America in the fifties. The burgers are slow-cooked to keep the meat juicy, or grilled in a coal oven for a smoky taste.
5) Burger Club
A specific Dutch cattle breed, Japanese Wagyu beef or Iberico pork: at Burger Club you can select the meat you like best. The taste of the meat is what makes these luxurious burgers so special. The sauces only enhance it. The menu also includes fresh French fries, a vegetarian weed burger and a fine selection of gin and tonics.
