Barcelona is a melting pot of culture, and – more importantly – it's overflowing with cuisine from around the world. So if you're looking for a taste of the US, you can count on La Burguesa to hit the spot with their all-out authentic American goodies.
Their refreshing take on what makes a great burger certainly keeps the locals coming back for more. We love the Madame, where the powerful, punchy flavours of goats' cheese, gorgonzola and a semi-cured cheese are layered on top of a prime beef patty, before being topped with poached onions. For something a bit closer to burger home, go for the Bacon, where they bundle melting cheddar onto a chargrilled beef burger before adding sweet fried onions and salty bacon strips. It's a classic for a reason people.
La Burguesa may only have been open since 2015, but they've developed quite a following in that time. By offering up a concise collection of classic American recipes, and making them up of only the best ingredients, they've taken their burger game to the next level.
And we haven't even got to the best bit yet – these guys have all meals of the day catered to. Try one of their vibrant Caprese salads – with arugula, vine tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and a dash of basil oil – if you fancy something lighter for lunch. Want some nibbles to share over drinks with your friends? Opt for cheesy nachos or chicken fingers.
Just because they take their cue from America's foodie superstars, it's doesn't mean they don't put their own spin on things. We love the Mallorquina burger, where a patty is met with manchego cheese, sobrasada and a fried egg for those Mediterranean tastes that we all know and love, or the Catalan, with a gooey Gouda cheese, escalivada and crunchy onions.
In true American style, you also get your pick of sweet and sticky desserts. We're crazy about their rich Red Velvet cake with a dreamy cream cheese filling, but for cocoa-lovers, try their dark chocolate Brownie or light and fluffy Chocolate Cake.
