If you’re like us, you would have shed a silent tear when Mumbai’s biggest burger bowed out. Sundance Cafe at Churchgate shut down a few years ago, taking with its legendary Sasquatch Burger. The burger weighed in at about a kilo and a half, with a beef patty being held cosily in place by slices of Canadian bacon and a fried egg. But not to worry, Mumbai’s burger joints have plenty of worthy successors to the Sasquatch throne. We broke down five of the biggest in buns across the city for you.
Open Wide: Our Guide To Gourmet Burger Hotspots In The City
OMG Burger, Cafe Universal
Standing tall at six centimetres, this burger comes with a steak knife fully plunged into its centre, for INR 550. Like onions and ogres, this one’s got layers, a dozen of them, to be exact, five meat patties, five slices of Britannia cheese, sauteed onions and tomato slices. Order it if you’re hungry, but also if you, like us, want to try the house Thousand Island Sauce. The owner refuses to be pinned down to any ingredient, merely saying it’s a “mixture”. Alright then.
#LBBTip - Order and eat at leisure, this bad boy takes a minimum of 15 minutes to show up on your table.
The XL Burger, The Little Door
