Hamburgers and I don’t really go together. Some of my friends call me a bit snobby when it comes to food. And I suppose they are right, but I can’t help it. My dad always enjoyed his food tremendously and eating gave him real pleasure. Sunday lunchtime lasted forever for him, and for us, since we were being polite and waiting at the table until he had finished. Thank you dad for passing on your foodie genes to me.
Back to the hamburgers. Why would I write a blog about hamburgers if I don’t really like them? Well, quite simply because the hamburgers at De Burgerij are not plain pieces of fast food junk, but are delicious thick round hamburgers, made of REAL meat, fish, or chicken. De Burgerij even caters for vegetarians. The hamburgers come in a variety of appetizing combinations with weird and wonderful names, such as Sombrero, Habibi, Samurai Salmon or Brazuca (if you haven’t heard yet, Belgium is going to the World Cup in Brasil). My favourite name is Kukelekurrie. You have to understand a bit of Flemish to get this one. Kukelekuu is the sound the rooster makes and kurrie means curry. The Kukelekurrie is a delightful chicken hamburger with coconut curry. You can order all the burgers Solo or Complete. The Complete version comes with delicious frietjes (sorry, I refuse to call them French fries) and a salad.
There is more to this place than just delicious food. De Burgerij’s terrace is right next to the MAS museum. It is the perfect place for a delicious, light lunch in the spring sunshine.
