Smashy Budapest

I’m usually lukewarm about places in Budapest and Vienna that simply imitate a big international trend without much forethought or a local angle. With Smashy, a burger joint in downtown Budapest that specializes in smashed burgers, I have to make an exception because the burgers are so delicious. What differentiates smashed burgers from regular burgers is the flattened patty, which makes a greater surface area of the meat nicely charred and crunchy. That’s exactly what Smashy does, then simply enclosing it in a soft bun layered with melted cheese and a homemade sauce. Yum!

To remain unbiased, I visit all places incognito and pay for my own meals and drinks. If you're enjoying this article, please consider supporting me by making a one-time payment (PayPal, Venmo).
