    Australia among the world's best Burgers

    The best burgers in the world and where to find them


    When it comes to food, the hamburger rates as one of the world’s greatest guilty pleasures. But this list claims to reveal where to find the best around the globe.

    FEBRUARY 25, 20209:25AM




    In the tradition of wild, weird and wonderful foods, we give you The Lasagne Burger …



    For many top chefs it’s one of the food world’s greatest guilty pleasures: the hamburger.
    It’s a simple dish that’s found everywhere and loved all around the globe. But where can you get the best burger and what’s the secret to turning a handful of minced beef (or something else) in a bun into something special? We asked the culinary elite – chefs laden with Michelin stars and other accolades – for their favourite burgers.

    AUSTRALIA
    Burger Project, Sydney
    Neil Perry of Rockpool Bar & Grill is the big-name chef behind Burger Project, which works with local suppliers. The patty is handmade, 100 per cent grass-fed beef. Try the American with Cape Grim beef, cheese, pickles, onions, mustard, secret sauce and rose mayo or a simple cheeseburger. Chosen by Scott Collins of MEATliquor, London.
    Butchers Diner, Melbourne

    CHINA
    Honbo, Hong Kong
    This homage to the classic American burger joint serves great food. The patties are made with Double Gold American beef from Wisconsin, served in a potato milk bun. The double cheeseburger is the signature option. Chosen by Shane Osborn of Arcane, Hong Kong

    DENMARK
    Gasoline Grill, Copenhagen
    Fresh organic burgers are cooked at this walk-in joint, which is attracting attention far beyond Denmark. Housed in a former petrol station, it has a short menu like a simple roadside grill. It’s worth going off piste with the vegetarian green burger. Chosen by Jamie Lee of Kødbyens Fiskebar, Copenhagen; Clare Smyth of Core by Clare Smyth, London

    FRANCE
    Badia, Grand Hôtel Thalasso, Saint-Jean-de-Luz
    This grand old hotel overlooking the bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz is an idyllic spot to eat. And Le Burger is particularly good, featuring truffled bread, Charolais ground beef, Basque sheep’s cheese and Espelette pepper ketchup with fries. Chosen by Shane Osborn of Arcane, Hong Kong

    Bioburger, Paris
    As the name suggests, this Parisian restaurant serves organic burgers and they are full of flavour. One favourite is Le Poivre: a choice of beef or vegetable patty with farmhouse cheddar, tomato, salad, onion jam and pepper sauce. It’s like eating steak au poivre on a bun. Chosen by Greg Marchand of Frenchie, Paris
    CAB Comptoir à Burger, Biarritz

    This restaurant is located close to Les Halles, the daily market in Biarritz, from which the chefs source the freshest of produce. The buns are cooked to a special recipe and all the sauces are homemade, says Paris-based chef Hélène Darroze.

    The prices are something else. The budget (Zabuton) version is 5000 yen ($45.50) rising to 50,000 yen for the Kobe Champion. Chosen by Kyle Connaughton of Singlethread, Healdsburg, California

    MEXICO
    Hamburguesas al Carbón Torreon
    The inexpensive charcoal-grilled burgers at this street stand near Pushkin Garden are world class, according to Mexican chef Enrique Olvera, whose Pujol places at 12 in the current ranking of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Chosen by Enrique Olvera of Pujol, Mexico City

    El Rey del Taco, Mexico City
    Mexican chef Martha Ortiz prefers tacos to burgers. El Rey del Taco covers both bases with the cheeseburger taco, which features a grilled patty with chihuahua cheese served in flour tortillas with mayo, tomato and avocado. Chosen by Martha Ortiz of Filigrana, Mexico City

    PERU
    Cafe a Bistro, Lima
    The burger comes with coarse ground roast beef, caramelised onions, cheese and a secret sauce. “It is simple and it really is delicious,” says Gastón Acurio, one of the most highly acclaimed chefs in Latin America. Chosen by Gastón Acurio of Astrid & Gastón, Lima

    La Lucha Sanguchería, Lima
    This casual Peruvian chain serves a great hamburger with double cheese, according to Virgilio Martinez, whose Central, in Lima ranks at No. 6 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. “It has a delicate Peruvian touch of acidity if you add the sauces they suggest – a bit spicy,” he says. Chosen by Virgilio Martinez of Central, Lima

    Maido, Lima
    You don’t immediately think of hamburgers at Maido, which has been crowned Latin America’s best restaurant for three years in a row. But London-based Sanjay Dwivedi remembers being served a steam bun filled with slowly cooked belly pork, aji rocoto mayonnaise and salsa creole. “It was a match made in heaven,” he says. Chosen by Sanjay Dwivedi of Coya, London

    SPAIN
    A Fuego Negro, San Sebastián
    The Basque city is known for the “pintxos” (small bites) served at informal bars, and chef Elena Arzak goes for the burger pintxos served at A Fuego Negro, where she is a regular. “It is original and unexpected,” she says. Chosen by Elena Arzak of Arzak, San Sebastián

    Hamburgueseria Cuchus, Bizkaia
    London-based Nieves Barragan fondly recalls the food at this family restaurant in Bizkaia. “It was an elderly lady selling the best burgers – I think she’s handed over to her son now. The burger is like a steak bocadillo. It’s so light, you could eat two.” Chosen by Nieves Barragan of Sabor, London

    La Royale, Barcelona
    This bar serves a wide range of burgers, including tuna and vegan options. But London-based José Pizarro recommends the Americana with aged beef, tomato sauce, lettuce, cheddar and tomato. “It’s nice and simple but really delicious,” he says. Chosen by José Pizarro of Pizarro, London

    ENGLAND
    Dinings SW3, London
    Restaurateur Scott Collins is a hero among burger fans for his MEATliquor restaurants. But his pick is an unusual one: A native lobster slider with yuzu aioli and pickled shallot. “Expensive, small, perfectly formed and eats as good as it reads,” he says. Chosen by Scott Collins of MEATliquor, London

    Eggslut, London
    “I am not a massive burger fan,” two-Michelin-star chef Clare Smyth admits, but she makes an exception for an American import, Eggslut, on Portobello Road. “They have a great menu, with the cheeseburger being a bit of a favourite,” she says. Chosen by Clare Smyth of Core by Clare Smyth, London

    Smith & Wollensky, London
    The London outlet of this US steak restaurant chain has a fan in one of the rising stars of London gastronomy, Ollie Dabbous. “Definitely the Butcher Burger,” he says. “This is done just about as well as it can be: The brioche buns are even baked in-house.” Chosen by Ollie Dabbous of Hide, London

    The Wolseley, London
    This is one of the most fashionable restaurants in London and has been since the day it opened in 2003. Italian chef Francesco Mazzei keeps going back for the Wolseley Hamburger. “It’s the most perfect burger,” he says. “It makes you happy.” Chosen by Francesco Mazzei of Radici, London

    United States
    Au Cheval, Chicago
    This diner, with outlets in New York and Chicago, is famous for its cheeseburger. Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio, who orders the double, says: “It’s got layers of good cheese, with a delicious thick piece of bacon and an egg. It’s succulent and elegant at the same time.” Chosen by Gastón Acurio of Astrid & Gastón, Lima

    Mumbai-based Prateek Sadhu loves the meat and the buns. Chosen by Randy Garutti of Shake Shack; Andrew McConnell of Cutler & Co., Melbourne; Prateek Sadhu of Masque, Mumbai

    Roister, Chicago
    Chef Daniel Boulud enjoys the A-5 Wagyu burger on the brunch menu at Grant Achatz’s Roister in Chicago. “It’s a delicious combination of fatty beef, aged cheddar and smoked bacon,” he says. Chosen by Daniel Boulud of Daniel, New York

    Shake Shack (various)
    It’s a rare chef who is not a fan of Shake Shack, where restaurateur Danny Meyer raised the bar for burgers. “It’s my favourite,” says French chef Greg Marchand. “I always go for the SmokeShack (double stack of course) and I also love their cheesy crinkly fries. “I love Shake Shack!” says Thailand’s Thitis Tassanakajohn. “It’s so addictive,” says Jason Atherton. Chosen by Jason Atherton of Pollen Street Social, London; Ravinder Bhogal of Jikoni, London; Daniel Boulud of Daniel; Hélène Darroze of Hélène Darroze, Paris; Greg Marchand of Frenchie, Paris; Thitid Tassanakajohn of Le Du, Bangkok

    Superiority Burger, New York\

    Here’s one for the vegetarians with many vegan options. The Superiority Burger features muenster cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomato, dill and pickle. Superiority is the creation of chef and musician Brooks Headley, former pastry chef at Del Posto. Chosen by Enrique Olvera of Pujol, Mexico City

    I think it rather silly when a burger is lauded as some sort of gourmet food. If you order your minced beef patty topped with foie gras, or gold flakes it puts you in the same category as someone who orders, say, a margarita with a top shelf aged tequila. The staff is sniggering at you.

    Fleurburger 5000: This absurd burger is served at the Fleur joint in the Mandalay Bay Casino, basically a wagyu beef patty topped with foie gras and truffle, and a snip at $5k.

    I think you're actually paying for the bottle that comes with it, 1995 Chateau Petrus, said to be one of the world’s most prized wines.

    Those chips look just right, will add it to my bucket list.

    As would most all Americans. Land of the best burger joint in the world. Burgers are not gourmet items. Folks want something fast, fresh and tasty. In n Out has this mastered.

    No shortage of burger options here in the sandpit. Going by the advertising they look very nice. Thing is, I don't dislike burgers, just rarely (like one every three or four years) do I have one.

    You don't have to put it in a bun.

    Otherwise: Yes

    Aussies can't do burgers

    After one bite, your "the Works", looks like Hamburg 45

    What a mess

    An aussie burger really should not be eaten by civilised folk. It is impossible to tuck into that ungodly mess and remain so. Maybe that's why it's so popular here. For mine, take an aussie burger and discard the inferior, mushy patty- and have extra bacon instead. That tastes better, and drives home the fact that in a classic aussie burger, the beef burger itself is almost irrelevant.

    The classic American burger is done that way for a reason. If the patty is good- which it almost always is in the US, all you need is fresh salad, mild amerkin cheese and a pickle or two. Still the world HQ.
