Cape Town Burgers restaurant
If you have ever wondered what real street food is, wonder no further. This little restaurant is located on arguably the busiest strip in Cape Town - Long Street.
Don't be fooled be the rustic (very rustic) interior. Just grab a high chair or a bench, order and await a new kind of delight. The Burger Shop, true to its name, offers mainly burgers, chips and stuff on rolls, but the portions are big and the nostalgia the street food evokes is something quite unique.
The dining process can become quite messy as it is 'illegal' to eat a burger with anything else than your hands, but this is part of the fun and colourful vibes that especially this part of Cape Town offers.
This is definitely not something to try if you prefer fine dining in a posh spot, but if you want a unique, proudly South African experience, pop in here.
V and A Waterfront Burgers restaurant
V and A Waterfront
This fabulous burger joint is situated in the popular V & A Waterfront and delivers on location, ambience, service and most importantly, yummy food.
When you walk in the door you'll see the staff dressed in smart uniform surrounded by elegant, warm and upmarket decor. But this joint is far from pretentious. Gibsons definitely serves up some of the best burgers in town.
Although gourmet burgers with a wide variety of toppings are at the top of the list, the menu also offers ribs, steaks, chicken, fish and salad dishes.
Start off with tender calamari that literally melts in your mouth. Or try the messy, sticky pork ribs and Gibson's secret cream sauce that complements the sweet potato fries perfectly.
The meat they use for the burger patties is full of flavour and yo can taste that it is the best of the best cuts used. The Mr Chutney burger with cheddar, bacon and chutney is a must-try and, just to treat yourself more, have a bar-one milkshake made with real bar-one chocolate.
Informal, fun and comfort food with a modern twist is what this joint is all about.
For dessert, make it a real experience by teaming this with a Bar-One milkshake with real melted Bar-One chocolate!
