Hotel President Staff has already reviewed five best cakes in Zagreb, but if we would tell you to pick a single meal that will keep you fed up through the whole day, what would it be? For lots of people, it would be a certain type of hamburger. First introduced in a restaurant in the late 19th century in Texas, USA, it spread its popularity around the world rapidly. And of course it found its way into Zagreb! Whether it’s after a business meeting or a night out, a burger always come in handy. So, here are the great 5 that will spice your stay in the capital.
Frankopanska street 11, Zagreb.
Let’s start off as healthy as possible with this restaurant designed in a very interesting, 19th century industrial style. But don’t let this setting give you a wrong picture, because this is probably one of the best burgers in Zagreb. Meat is of organic production so it is completely without any additives and it is fresh on a daily basis, unlike many other burgers produced for wide distribution. This restaurant with a creative name and lovely staff (and so close to Hotel President) is definitely worth a try.
Nikola Tesla street 10, Zagreb
‘Penguin’ is one of those places in which, when making a pros and cons list, you simply cannot find a con. It has not only burgers, but also amazing sandwiches which are prepared for you in only a few minutes. Pingvin is known among Zagrebians as an excellent late night eatery, and thanks to its flexible working hours, it is usually open until 4 a.m. This way, you can party all night long knowing that there is a burger waiting for you, exactly when you need it the most.
Preradovićeva street 13, Zagreb
Have you ever been to New York? If you haven’t, why not experience a piece of it’s atmosphere and food in Burgeraj. It is a lovely decorated restaurant which interior will, combined with great food and American beer, stay in your memory long after you leave Zagreb. That is why you should not forget to ask at the Hotel President reception to book you a table as soon as you arrive. Oh and yes: the irreplaceable french fries are included in all prices!
Zagrebačka street 194, Zagreb
Let’s get one thing straight in the beginning: this is arguably the best burger in Zagreb, if not in the whole Croatia. Unfortunately, it is not so close to the city center, but trust our staff when we say – it is worth the distance. House specialty is the Zloburger which numbers say a lot: bagel weights 330 g itself, and the meat fascinating 200 grams. By the way, we challenge you to beat the current record which equals 4 Zloburgers in 45 minutes! Let this one sink in for a while..
ROCKET BURGER CAFE
Tkalčićeva street 44, Zagreb
The name speaks for itself. This burger will sky-rocket you on the planet of enjoyment in no time. It has highly rated chefs and staff with a constant smile on their faces. The place to stop by when scrolling around the city center. And now, enough of our talk, because a picture like this speaks more than a thousand words.
