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.

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.

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.

Original Legendary Burger at Hard Rock Cafe

Hard Rock Cafe

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

This 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.

Where: 13, Museum Road and 311, 6th Main, 2nd Stage, Indiranagar

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 mushroom, and grill it. So with each bite, you get spicy beef, gooey cheese and peppery shrooms. #FTW we say.

Where: 20 Castle Street, Ashok Nagar and 13, Rhenius Street, Shanthinagar

Contact: +91 9739902745 for both locations

Price: INR 285 {single}; INR 335 {double} {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 pants with an elastic waist to tackle this one.

Where: 594, 12th Main, Indiranagar

Price: INR 550 {approx.}

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.

Hot Chicken Burger with Cheese at The Chocolate Room

We remember Indiana Fast Food as the place to celebrate the end of exams and birthdays with wholesome, old school burgers. The place might have shut down but the burgers are still available. Our favourite is the hot chicken burger with its fiercely spicy chicken patty, which we love consuming by dousing it into their creamy, addictive homemade mayo.

Moo's Your Daddy Burger at Cafe Thulp in Bangalore
