Time Out says

A quirky, compact eatery with a simple menu of juicy burgers, crispy fries, and creamy shakes

At Bunsen, the small menu does not translate to limited flavor. Burgers and buns are made by hand every morning and the extra effort translates to a truly memorable meal – without any fuss. Start with a base of Black Aberdeen Angus beef and gooey, American-style cheese, then add deli-style pickles, fresh produce, and special “punch” sauce until your heart’s content. Shoestring and sweet potato fries are nice, but original hand cut is the way to go here. Bunsen first opened their doors at Wexford Street in 2013 and have since expanded to three additional locations in Dublin, one in Cork, and another in Belfast. With the high quality and attractively low price, I doubt it will be the last of them.

Time Out tip: With a mouthwatering social media presence that announces specials and deals, Bunsen is worth the follow.
