I live for Friday night:that time you are done with work or class and your brain wants to be rewarded with some good foods and a drink or two. A burger for dinner is always a good idea (no discussions, please!), so now it’s time to choose the place. I am in the mood for somewhere hip but cozy. Where the people are friendly and the place is stylish yet rustic.
I rang my protégés from work and suggested Brooklyn Burger Bar for our reunion. After looking at there menus online, they just couldn’t say no. The BBB is located in the central of Hamburg; the owner renovated a former pharmacy to a hip industrial chic flared burger bar.
I put on my I heart NY shirt (cos I like it matchy matchy) and ordered the homemade raspberry thyme lemonade and a homemade lemon mint ice tea. They were not too sweet, just right for my taste.
For the chow of the night I chose the Def Jam Burger with Fourme d’Ambert, arugula (rockets), tomato & bacon-marmelade with extra bacon (no comment). I went for the sweet potato fries and homemade dips as sides. All delish, can’t complain.
Because I had a movie date with my girls after I didn’t eat any dessert. I would definitely recommend the New York cheesecake though. Look at this baby: naughty and garnished with strawberry sauce.
You don’t have to go home after dinner, get your Friday night drinks or digestives at the bar.
