7-Inch Beasts To Jack Daniels Bacon: Here's Where You Can Get The Best Meaty Burgers In Town

Sreepathy posted on 24 July

One would think that it is easy to make a burger — a meaty centre, vegetables and condiments stuffed in a bun — but true connoisseurs might laugh at your naivety. They, just like us, know that a great burger is about the perfect ingredients cooked just right and assembled to give you an explosion of flavours in each bite. We’ve put together a list of the top ten burgers in Bangalore that make the cut. Debates, fierce arguments and long discussions welcome. May the best burger win.

MoBar Burger At Monkey Bar

The ground, spiced beef patty of this burger weighs in at 300 grams and then there’s the lettuce, cheese, bacon, onions and tomato, mayo and seasoning to boot. This is a scrumptious affair and best enjoyed in silence and solitude. Plus, the compliant burger buns {freshly baked in-house} make sure that you can hold your burger together effortlessly to get the perfect bite. We also recommend the Idaho Bill that comes with a crisped-up chicken patty that’s slathered with blue cheese sauce.

Price: INR 300 – 420 plus tax {approx.}

Monster Steak At Peppa Zzing

On a day when one is feeling generous, this burger can be shared by two. But a little patience and perseverance can see anyone devour this monster-size burger in one sitting. An extra-large bun spills over with coleslaw, tomato, onions, cucumber and two thick, grilled, well-done tenderloin steaks, which lend each bite that distinctive meaty-peppery flavour – a winner in our books.

Price: INR 350 {approx.}

Original Legendary Burger At Hard Rock Cafe

Smoked bacon, melted cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and fried onion rings along with 300 grams of ground beef jostle for space between two halves of a toasted bun served with Cajun-spiced potato fries. One might want to hit the gym immediately after or settle into the nearest bed. Your choice.

The Whopper Burger At The Only Place

The Whopper was one of the first burgers in the city. Besides dripping with nostalgia, it is one of the few burgers in the city that incorporates gravy into the burger, making it a messy, delish affair. A beef, lamb or chicken version of The Whopper is available. Though we always ask for the lamb.

Price: INR 420 {approx.}

The Ultimate At Red Fork

Although not on the menu, The Ultimate burger is that special that it is only made on request at Red Fork. The name itself is a good indication of what to expect from The Ultimate burger. It is double beef patty, Cheddar cheese, bacon, jalapenos, caramelised onions, gherkins, fried egg and lettuce with a drizzling of mayo and barbecue sauce. We suggest wearing a pair of trousers with an elastic waist to tackle this one.

Red Fork is closing on Thursday, March 15, so be sure to try this out before it closes. More on that here.

Jack Daniels Bacon Burger At The Black Rabbit

This burger is a decadent and heady experience of meaty tenderloin patty soaked up in whiskey, Cheddar, grilled onions and tomatoes served with slaw and frizzled onions. The Frizzled Onions are onions baked with flour after having been soaked in buttermilk. You might also want to dip into the accompanying relishes. There’s tomato mustard and charred chilli for that extra spicy kick.

The Juicy Lucy At Plan B

This popular hangout of college students has an interesting take on the traditional burger. They stuff the ground beef patty with cheese and mushrooms, and grill it. So with each bite, you get spicy beef, gooey cheese and peppery shrooms {that too neatly nestled in between the patties}. #FTW we say.
