For a while, handmade burger joints seemed to be popping up everywhere. At some point during this fluorishing trend, Brooklyn the Burger Joint emerged to claim its place at the front of the pack. Amid fierce competition, only the fittest survive, and Brooklyn the Burger Joint is the fittest of the fittest. Located in a quiet residential alley, this snug little place can accommodate about 15-20 burger lovers. That being said, visiting at chow time can easily require some queing time.
The patty, the burger’s very core, is made of 100% freshly minced beef every day. You can choose between a 140g smashed patty and a 200g hand formed patty. For a meaty and tender, not-too-thick burger that can be managed with one hand, opt for the smashed 140g. For those of you looking for something a little heftier, get the 200g patty for thick, juicy bites of beef. Our favorite burgers are the Brooklyn Works, an irresistible beauty with American cheese melting decadently on its beef, and the Cheese Skirt, with a gorgeous skirt of nutty, toasted cheddar cheese jutting out over the edges of the bun. As for drinks, you could always go with a classic coke, but we suggest taking advantage of their well-stocked beer menu or ordering one of their many delicious milkshakes.
