Budapest is far removed from the global capitals of burgerdom, so if you grew up eating In-N-Out Double Doubles or ShackBurgers, you may feel underwhelmed by the local offerings. Several Budapest burger joints, however, have been working hard on perfecting their burger games, and if you keep your expectations in check, you might be in for a positive surprise.
Part burger joint, part craft beer bar, Kandalló is a wildly popular place in Budapest's Jewish Quarter. The burgers here are among the best you'll find in Budapest, although, as in other places, I'd prefer their buns to be smaller and squishier. Most patties are made from Grey Cattle, a local breed, while the more expensive burgers use Angus (patties are 180 gram / 6.3 oz).
