Beijing is the capital of the People's Republic of China and one of the most powerful cities in the world today - both politically and economically. The Chinese are becoming more and more globalized if the number of the burger joints within their capital city is anything to go by. They have acquired a taste for the ever popular American delicacy and you will find some crazy queues outside burger joints in the city. Below are the most popular burger joints in Beijing.
1. Maison Boulud à Pékin
At the top of the table is this classy restaurant that will make you feel like you are in the heart of New York City. The Cadbury crème egg, sirloin steak mixed with wagyu fat, surrounding a tasty layer of red wine-braised short makes the burger served here 'a mustn't miss'.
2. One East
Yeah, the restaurant is classy and you will feel odd ordering a burger, but the delectably moist beef burger will make you think again about feeling embarrassed. It is the kind of restaurant you take a girl on your first date.
With the burgers served here being topped off with caramelized onions, Thousand Island dressing and some special salads; a patron will be glad he/she chose to have his/her meal in this restaurant. It is a little hidden gem where one goes for a nice quiet meal.
4. Mr. Too
The signature burger that is served at Mr. Too is topped of caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, bacon and sauces. If you have never had some fries in a Chinese restaurant, this is a good place to introduce yourself to Chinese-made French fries.
Welcome to little Texas in the heart of Beijing. From the Succulent mince topped with onions, chilies, diavolino cheese and whisky apple sauce to the homemade buns that are used to serve the burger; it is going to feel like you are sitting in a Texan burger joint - only the people waiting on you would be Chines and not the 'Twangy' Texan waitresses.
If you are a world traveller, I know at some point you will visit Beijing. While there, make sure you visit the above burger joints - they may remind you why America is still the greatest country on the globe.
