Two Irish restaurants named among the best burgers in the world

Lucky us!

If we're going to trust anyone on their burger judging capabilities, it is the folk at Burger Dudes.


It is right there in their name, so we know that burgers are why they're here, and if they say a burger is good, then we're going to go ahead believe them.

Which is why it is a good thing we don't have to travel too far to get our hands on some of the best burgers in the world, as they recently named what they consider to be the best 50 burgers in the ENTIRE WORLD, and there are two Irish entries on there.

Yep, on a global scale, Ireland is home to 1/25th of the best burger joints in existence. Happy days.

Coming in at No.44, with branches in Belfast, Cork, and Dublin, is Bunsen, which they described as:

"Our medium cooked burger was served in no time, wrapped in some paper that made sure that everything was nice and gooey. The fluffy bun was perfectly toasted, keeping everything in place, and everything tasted great. We especially liked the patty with its charred outside and juicy centre. And all of the ingredients worked really well together without taking over. Definitely one of the finest specimens in Ireland."

Higher up the list, landing at No.35, is the recent Best Burger In Ireland award-winner, Galway's own Handsome Burger, which was described as follows:

"The amazing meat had a deeply beefy flavour, and the other ingredients – such as super intensive Derg cheddar and delectable bacon – were bold without taking over too much. We also liked the sturdy bun that kept everything in place. This is definitely the best burger we’ve had from the Emerald Isle."
