Meat Mania

LuxeGetaways - - Getaways Geneva -

There are times that many of us just want a good burger, es­pe­cially af­ter an af­ter­noon of soak­ing and re­lax­ing. The Ham­burger Foundation (Rue Philippe-Plan­ta­mour 37, 1201 Genève), started by three Gen­evese child­hood friends, be­gan as a food truck; then an­other food truck, and fi­nally two restau­rants. The restau­rant in Paquis (by the Grand Ho­tel Kempin­ski) is a true ham­burger joint, serv­ing juicy medium-rare burg­ers with buns crammed full of leafy let­tuce, fresh toma­toes, crisp onions, crunchy pickles and just enough mayo, mus­tard and ketchup to seal the de­li­cious deal. It is pretty straight­for­ward: or­der a ham­burger, cheese­burger or ba­con cheese­burger along with a side of slaw or fries, add in a bot­tle of ei­ther Cheap, Bet­ter or Best red or white wine and it is a meal ac­com­pli. The beef is all lo­cal, and ground to ex­act­ing stan­dards by the in-house butcher. Burger bliss.

Burg­ers start at around CHF 15, and a “Cheap” bot­tle of red is CHF 30. No need to be afraid of or­der­ing the “cheap” wine; any­thing lo­cal is de­li­cious.
