Burgers, why not in Poland?

One thing that I always thought was odd was the lack of a decent burger.
Most shops sold some variations made from reclaimed chicken meat which contained a load of disgusting crap and tasted nothing like a burger.
Is there anywhere in Poland where you can buy a decent burger made from beef?

Champions Bar at the Warsaw Marriot does excellent burgers. At a price. The ones from burger stands in PL are just plain disgusting.

That's what I have if I go there. Delicious.

There's a rumour it's closing, but to be fair there have been such rumours for about three years and it's still open.

Decent Burger?

Thats an oxymoron, anything that can legally contain 1% excrement cannot be defined as decent.

Can't post a link, I just mean something that actually tastes like a burger and contain some kind of steak or beef.

If I was having a bbq then I would have to go out and buy all the ingredients.

This is what your burger should look like.

I'd say most of burgers, same as kebabs and pizza are designed for a specific region and people, specific taste. So it will be hard to find the exactly same flavour that you like because there's a big probability that it only tastes like that in your country. Most places to eat a "burger" in poland are cheap burgers kiosks and stalls and being the cheapest of places they don't serve quality food. I know most of people here are mcdonald haters but it's the only close to decent place to eat a burger..

HardRock Cafe burger is the best I've had in Warsaw, way better than Champions imo.

We make our own from minced beef, failing that if theres a branch of rodeo drive where you are they do amazing burgers, the one in poznan is truly excellent.

I found the steaks in Rodeo Drive (Warsaw) to be excellent but their burgers far too small - maybe the Poznan chefs are more generous. The Warsaw restaurant has since closed.

Ive made my own a few times, ive also gotten through one of those kiosk jobbies with all that cabbage crap in and enjoyed it, you have to be very hungry though!!

Theres a new restaurant near me, a private establishment that has just started with proper beef burgers and theyre nice. I think the owners have lived abroad for a while, i just hope that they survive - personally i cant see Poles eating there at the current prices, i predict they will go under within a year, we'll see.

Why does anyone want to eat burgers of any sort?

Why do you ask so many questions?

A very very high price from what I remember. Anf I must say that none of the food I've ever had there was any good.

The one in Warsaw is pretty hit or miss. I have had a very decent burger there but I have also had charred rubbish. One time I had a bacon cheeseburger and the bacon was completely uncooked in the middle but charred at both ends. Both pieces were like that!

The most consistent burgers are at Bar Below but the Mexican burger at Warsaw Tortilla factory is better when it is good.

Personally, I just make my own burgers when I want good ones.

Yeh right you used to get a Mont Blanc Burger at the Marriot in Gatwick for about £20.

The Irish Mbassy in Krakow has some ok burgers, but it's also a hit and miss, depends if the South African (forget his name) is working.

I think what I was getting at is that I couldn't find anything that resembled a burger in the supermarkets or local shops. Normally I would just go to McDonalds, but sometimes I just fancied a snack at home.

Im just curious to know why on earth people want to eat burgers - regardless of their meat content, I'd rather have a steak, at least know its proper meat and not full of fat or been fried in oil or been bulked out with all sorts...Its just my preference I suppose.

That's the best way-you know what is in the meat.

Do you like meat-balls? As proper burgers are practically the same thing, give or take a few different spices.

Yes---especially when they are smothered in gravy.

Well it pretty much covers everything made with mince meat that you buy already packaged or cooked.

Yum yum, I like mine the Italian way, covered with a tomato sauce then baked in the over with cheese on top :P

...but you do realize that there are different strokes for different folks, but it would be a bit of a joke to say Na Zdrowie to someone sitting down to a McDo burger.

No, dont get me wrong I like cottage pie, so Im not against minced steak, I just dont like meatballs or burgers...its just my preference...I would never be bothered to cook them at home and Im funny about food so I wouldnt eat them out anywhere...I have tried them (years ago) but I wouldnt eat one these days.

to say "na zdrowie" even with a Mcdo you need refreshments and that is------

at least know its proper meat

How do you know that the cow hasnt been given every drug under the sun to keep him fat and juicy? also what about the supermarkets tampering?
