This post is so sinful! It’s all about meaty-licious, wicked, insanely tasty burgers. Depending on the mood, what you’re craving, or the area you are located in Athens, this list is Nikoza-approved, tested and well digested. You just CAN’T go wrong.
1) Burger AP
When Akis Petretzikis, Greece’s finest and cutest chef, creates burgers, the result won’t be anything but foodgasmic. The place is so cute and, besides the burgers, you can enjoy amazing soft serves for dessert plus healthy salads.
-Address: Elvetias 16, Agia Paraskevi
2) (Pere) Ubu
I have previously mentioned this place and for the exact same reason: the truffle burger. This all day café/bar/restaurant is not a burger place, yet a posh hotspot in the southern suburbs. The truffle burger plate is worth every penny.
-Address: Kyprou 74, Glyfada
An Asian restaurant on a burger list? Oh yes. The 3 burgers it does serve – chicken, beef, vegan – are each better than the other. The highlight? The steamed bun that differentiates them from anything else you’ve ever tried. Mouthwatering.
-Address: Kratitos 9, Athina
Every infamous, non gluten-free, extra fattening and hell-no-vegan creation of this place should be in the top search for #foodporn. Seriously. When you want to cheat, this is the temple of sins. Find it in any of the two locations below and be prepared to wait in line.
-Address 1: Elefteriou Venizelou 18, Nea Smirni
-Address 2: Freatidos Avenue 13, Pireaus
South Africans know how to make burgers and pretty damn well, to be honest. Kozi’s is a great place that is famous for its deliciously marinated grilled meat and the burgers aren’t anything except lip-smacking good.
-Address: Panagi Tsaldari 32-34, Melissia
Honoring the name and the reputation of this place are feast-y, tasty, and juicy burgers. A burger house that gets better and better with each passing day. They love creating and we love enjoying! Don’t miss it.
-Address: Keramikou 2, Cholargos
Is anyone getting hungry? I know I am. I also know what I want to eat. The problem is where??? I need to re-try them all!!
When you find yourself in Athens, remember these names. Your palate will thank me forever!
