Expert review of Home Burger Bar

When only a burger will do, this gourmet diner ticks all the boxes.

I didn’t think I was a burger person until I ate here. They use organic meat and bread, and you can really taste the difference. Home Burger has been a word-of-mouth success since it opened in 2007, and now has three branches in downtown Madrid. Don’t be put off by the unpromising purple exterior, it’s fine once you get through the door.

Food and drink: 

Burgers come with classic or fancy toppings, such as brie with caramelised onions, or cream cheese with walnuts. If you don’t want beef, chicken burgers are also available. The menu is not overwhelmingly long, but includes some great salads and sandwiches, with options for vegetarians and even vegans – which I didn’t expect to find in a burger joint. Desserts are typically American, with a really good cheesecake.
Most people drink beer or soft drinks rather than wine.
 

Ambience: 

Always busy with a mix of locals, gourmets and groovy Malasaña types. At lunchtime it is popular with people who work nearby.

 

Service: 

Waiters do their job without any kowtowing.

Location: 

In the heart of boho Malasaña. Calle Espíritu Santo is spearheading the renaissance of this formerly scruffy neighbourhood, with new cool bars, cafés, restaurants and shops popping up on an almost daily basis.

Price advice: 

Burgers are between 10.50 and 13 euros. With a beer and a dessert, you’re veering towards 20 euros. Note that the 8 per cent  tax is not included on the menu prices for some reason, so the bill might be a few euros more than you were expecting.

Other useful branches: 

There are other branches at Calle San Marcos 26 in Chueca and Calle Silva 25, just off the Gran Via. See the website for details.
