Enter the busy life of daily Zagreb and do what the locals do when it comes to taking a break – grab a burger. Zagreb will surprise you with great fast food restaurants, and Burgeraj is one of the best. It’s located in a very center of the city (Preradovićeva street nr. 13), just across caffe bar Alcatraz, which is the favorite spot a locals choose for all kinds of meetings.
If you need simple but tasty meal that reminds you of New York, find your seat in this relaxing restaurant which actually looks like a big living room. Huge windows will enable you to be in touch with the city throng from the outside, but you may also rest inside since the place is pleasure to the eye. Solid wood, plastic and heavy metals are combined with plenty of handcrafted and “vintage” elements like leather bar stools from USA.
You’ll notice that The Big Apple is huge inspiration for the owners, who have decorated the place with imaginative details like Lego lamps in a form of heads above the bar, bench – modeled on those from the New York subway, old photo lamps which are now used for lighting of space, skateboards recycled into hangers, old radio and antique arcade machine that are still in function. The walls are dominated with cult movie posters (original Japanese poster for “Across 110th Street” and “Kids”) and old postcards from New York.
But, hey, the best is yet to come – burgers! Contrary to most fast food, these Burgeraj burgers are the healthiest possible – recipe is homemade, tested and proven as great. All the meat is 100% domestic beef, daily fresh, never frozen and without additives. You’ll get free fries and addings with each burger. (This sounds great!) Prices vary from 35 to 47 kuna (4,5 to 6,2 euro).
In Burgeraj, you can grab one of the best burgers Zagreb can offer, but if you get thirsty, in this restaurant you can find refreshment like Fentimans juices – naturally fermented and made of natural ingredients. Since the place is related to USA, there you can find American beers (Brooklyn for instance) made in craft breweries. Find your drink for a price of 15 to 29 kuna (1,9 to 3,8 euro). While you enjoy in your meal, Burgeraj will provide for the atmosphere, so they’ll play funk, soul and old school hip-hop music.
