Is there still room for innovation in the overcrowded world of the hamburger? Maybe not, but we can only hope new ones that open up have as much of their own personality and know-how as Tío Joe. Two food companies came together to produce this burger joint done in the style of a Catalan farmhouse (like in those sandwich places decorated with yokes and ploughs). The ground beef comes from intercostal cuts of mature cows – marinated for two days in broth – and the home-made bread is crusty on the outside, spongy on the inside. You won't forget soon forget their burgers (for example, La Suegra features mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, lettuce and habanero pepper sauce). And don't forget the chips.
