HONOLULU’S BEST BURGERS
Hamburgers in Hawaii aren’t quite your average patty and bun
Thoughts of Hawaii usually conjure up images of bikini bodies, rather than beautifully built burgers, but rest assured the islands are home to both. Scratch the food surface of Hawaii’s capital city, Honolulu, and a tasty burger scene appears. With access to fresh ingredients procured locally from cattle ranches, family-run farms and esteemed bakeries, the Hawaiian Islands produce top-quality patties, fillings and buns.
Honolulu’s best burgers come with a huge helping of creativity, from ’50s-style inspiration and 1980s pop culture, to comic-book decor and beer-infused ingredients. This is not your average list of burger joints.
PINT + JIGGER
Pint + Jigger is a “hipster” gastropub in Honolulu specialising in highquality cuisine, craft beers on tap and classy cocktails. The gourmet menu showcases food intended to be paired with specific beverages. Burger choices are limited; it’s about quality, not quantity. The Stout Burger is a must-try experience for all burger connoisseurs. The highlight is a tossup between the thick and juicy patty and an unusual slice of beer cheese. Eat it with the standard trimmings of lettuce, pickles and garlic aioli, or elevate the indulgence with caramelised onions, avocado or bacon. Its suggested match is a pale ale but if beer doesn’t appeal, select a handcrafted cocktail, such as an Old Fashioned, instead. PINTANDJIGGER.COM
BURGERS & THINGS
Burgers & Things is a small burger joint filled with comics, actionfigures and anime paraphernalia, a one-of-a-kind in Hawaii. The meat patties are braised in different housemade jus depending on the burger type, giving them complex flavours that pack a punch. Quirky burger titles such as Wagyu Say?!, Lamb Bam Thank Ewe Ma’am and Un-foiegettable set them apart from the competition. The original Juicy Burger is a finger-licking good time. The patty is soaked overnight in a “secret-recipe” signature jus and housed in a basic bun with tomato, lettuce and balsamic aioli. Upgrade
