3 out of 5 stars

Simple is best at this burger joint, a permanent outlet for its popular roving food truck.

You won’t find overloaded patties at this American-style burger joint in the Pâquis. The boys behind this recent addition to Geneva’s increasingly large burger scene like to keep things simple. There are just three options on the menu – hamburger, cheeseburger and bacon cheeseburger – and the focus is on the meat – juicy, succulent and cooked medium rare, unless you specify otherwise. A bit of ketchup, lettuce, tomato and pickles, with fries and coleslaw on the side, and that’s your lot – a burger, straight up. While it’s a contrast to the more elaborate approach of other burger restaurants in town, Hamburger Foundation’s focus on quality and taste is a wise move and keeps punters who know their patties coming back. Testament to its success is the fact that it actually started life as a roving food truck which still touts its burgers around town (locations change daily – see the website for details) before demand led to this permanent outlet which, pleasingly, has a satisfyingly-stocked bar.
