Bunsen has quickly escalated in popularity since the doors of its first premises opened in 2013 on Wexford Street. Since then, another restaurant has opened in Temple Bar on Essex Street East with great success.
The ideology of Bunsen is ‘Straight Up Burgers’; they keep their menu clean and simple with no complications. Their neat menu fits on a business card that you take a look at upon arrival at your table as seen below.
There is a selection of beers such as Brooklyn Lager, Punk IPA, Peroni etc. A wine menu is also available including red and white wines.
What do I recommend? Each time I have been, I have ordered a double cheeseburger, sweet potato fries and a chocolate milkshake. I highly recommend the milkshake; it gives off the same flavour as Ben & Jerry’s and it goes down like a treat.
The prices are reasonable and you have the option to get your burger medium or well done. It has to be remembered that this isn’t just fast food, it is a quality burger and the service that you are paying for. The food is served on a metallic tray with the burger wrapped in paper and the fries in a card container.
Bunsen Burger is a busy spot and the crowd adds to the atmosphere. They don’t take bookings so you could be waiting a while before you are seated if it is busy. Fortunately each time I have been, the service has been prompt taking no longer than 15 minutes for the meal to be brought out to our table.
So is this the best burger in Dublin? I feel you should try the experience out for yourself and let me know what you think. I have a feeling you will enjoy it just as much as I do.
