Buenos Aires faves, BURGER JOINT
My prayers have been answered.
It’s going to be wicked dangerous.
Scratch that. It already is dangerous!
I say that because Saturday I went twice in one day. As in two cheeseburgers, two fries, and two orange sodas. Don’t judge.
Their Mexican burger was just too good to not indulge a second time around.
It’s called Burger Joint and is a couple blocks from Plaza Serrano on Jorge Burgess towards Santa Fe.
They have a neon hamburger sign outside. That’s all you need to know. Follow the neon burger.
It’s very rock ‘n roll. Grungy but not dirty.
Think movie posters, music records and graffiti. Done tastefully.
There are picnic tables outside, a couple of big booths and counter seating indoors.
Tables are full of happy and festive condiments- cilantro mayo, curry ketchup, homemade hot sauce, etc.
The menu is very limited- burgers, fries, soda and beer.
Which I love!
Stick with what you know and do well.
Simplicity, folks. Good service.
I’ve had three burgers in total.
The combo of loaded hamburger + fries + soda = 49 pesos
Then there was the second Mexican burger on Saturday night. She was just as good as the first.
Props for consistency.
What makes the Mexican so good? The addition of guacamole and jalapeno!
She’s a winner.
I hope she sticks around.
So happy and scared to be their neighbor.
