They may not be healthy but sometimes a craving for a burger just hits! Luckily, in Bermuda, we have a great array of options to choose from: from Pink Beach to Somerset, you’re sure to find something to fit your mood. Here are some of our favourites:
For a Gourmet Burger: The Pink Beach Club
The Loren is the perfect place to enjoy this burger: made with a brisket and hanger blend of beef, it’s juicy and flavourful – but the addition of all the junky classics like American cheese and pickles keep it enjoyable. Enjoy medium-rare with one of Pink Beach Club’s Lone Star jalapeno cocktails. 116 South Road, Smith’s. 293-1666.
For a Diner Burger: Speciality Inn
The perfect place for a quick lunch where everyone can get exactly what they want, from burgers to sushi. Speciality’s classic diner burgers are sure to hit the spot: particularly when ordered as a double decker with bacon and cheese! Pro tip: order the spicy fries to go alongside your burger and round off your diner experience with one of Speciality’s famous milkshakes. 8 South Road, Smith’s. 236-3133.
For a Treat: The Factory
Impress your local friends by visiting one of Bermuda’s best kept secrets. Located at Ocean View Golf Course, The Factory serves a range of treats – from tacos to Bermudian classics. Their delicious Bodega and Smash Burgers are chock full of seasoning and it’s the perfect place to stop off after work for a no-effort dinner. 2 Barkers Hill, Devonshire. 542-4360.
For a Range of Options: Paraquet Restaurant
This retro diner offers a seriously extensive burger menu, so there’s something for everyone. The meat-eaters can enjoy a Hangover Special (served with egg and their special Hangover Sauce) to the Tex Mex (with avocado, bacon and jalapenos) while those more health conscious can go with a Turkey or Beyond Burger. Plus, visiting here for lunch is the perfect excuse to pick up some of Paraquet’s famous baked goods on your way out! 68 South Road, Paget. 236-9742
To Enjoy on the Beach: Trini Spice
These purveyors of Trinidadian classics, roti and doubles, also serve up a mean burger! While they don’t have a dining-in space, it’s the perfect excuse to take one of their deliciously spiced burgers to one of the beaches nearby for a quick and dirty picnic option. 29 Mangrove Bay, Somerset. 261-2868.
