Burgers Bar (German Colony)
Burgers Bar is all over Jerusalem, with multiple iterations of the popular national chain cranking out peerless kosher burgers for visitors and residents alike. This is an Israeli version of the hamburger: still a beef patty on a bun at the end of the day, of course, but reinterpreted in various ways to suit Israelis' tastes and common dietary restrictions.
So no bacon or slices of American cheese for your burger, but there's a whole lot of other interesting fixins to apply. The standard hamburger is a thick all-beef patty freshly made to order, with three available sizes ranging from 150 to 300 grams (even 150 grams is not exactly a tiny burger). Want a little something extra? Try a host of toppings from Argentinian chimichurri and Italian pesto to Yemenite charif and Middle Eastern tehina, or a tasty fried egg (the favorite local burger innovation).
Don't forget to take a look at the rest of the menu if you're not a burger state of mind. It offers American-style comfort food like steak sandwiches, chicken salad, chicken strips, onion rings, wings, wraps and lots more - even an aged entrecote steak for dine-in customers.
Naturally, any popular chain in Jerusalem demands a location on Emek Refaim, the heart of the German Colony. A burger is the perfect way to complement a day of socializing or shopping in the Colony.
