The best burger in Ireland has been revealed
Putting to rest several hundred years of debate.
Is it national burger week and nobody told us?? Oh, it was! No wonder we were having such a good time!
Between the news of the new branch of Five Guys opening in Dublin, and the two Irish burger joints named in the top 50 burgers in all of Europe, it has been a great time to be a lover of meat and buns.
Now the good news continues, as Ireland's Best Burger has been named, following some heated voting at national Burger Festival, with the title going to The Hatch food truck in County Down, as they beat out two-time winners Son Of A Bun in Cork by just a handle of votes.
The Hatch had additional venues around the country, in Kilkeel, Dundrum and Newcastle, but the County Down team blew everyone away with some of their limited edition burgers that came in three new flavours: The Big Black Truffle Mac & Cheese Burger, The Scampi Fries Fish Burger, and The Indian Burger.
Bronagh Johnstone owner of The Hatch, had the following to say about the win:
"We just loved being part of this fantastic competition. BurgerFest gives businesses like ours a chance to showcase their ideas. After winning Best Burger in Ulster in 2018, we are delighted to now win Best Burger in Ireland 2019, especially given the quality of the other entrants this year.
"We are so proud and grateful to receive this award to get recognition for our love for good food, local produce and hard work."
