With delicious steaks at every turn here in BsAs, why would people ever want a hamburger, especially as steaks and hamburgers usually cost in the same range? (I’m not talking about a steak at Don Julio, which now costs as much as it would in New York, thanks to Lionel Messi’s declaring Don Julio is his favorite restaurant. Thanks, Li.)
Still, lots of hamburger joints started opening here around 2012 or 2015, so we started trying one or two places a year, with consistently disappointing results. But remembering that we’d been impressed by Fat Broder when they opened in 2019, we walked over to see if they had survived the lockdown. They had. We ordered the Juicy Lucy, a 100 gram smashburger on a decent bun, with a couple of pieces of crispy (yes, crispy!) bacon, melted nondescript “American” cheese, and crunchy thin-sliced sweet pickles.
If you’re in town, and you like a real hamburger, you won’t be sorry if you try this one.
