My favourite burger in Doha is the Bistro Burger at Champions and Greg loves Shake Shack burgers. I’d been told that the best burger was at Burgeri at Aspire so we went to investigate. We arrived just after opening on Friday afternoon and I was surprised at the industrial, stripped back feel of the restaurant. Booths, metal tables and chairs, long wooden benches and the staff served from inside what can be best described as a steel type cage. A large wall was playing film clips and the music was from a ‘now this is music’ tape circa 1984. I loved it! As it was so warm we sat inside but there is a roof top terrace where you can get great views of the Torch and Aspire.
As its self service we grabbed a booth and a menu ourselves. I chose a single burger with aged cheddar and Greg chose a ‘special’ burger with pickles, aged cheddar, salad and Burgeri sauce. We also ordered a portion of sweet potato fries and cheesy fries to share and two soft drinks. When you order you are given a buzzer which goes off once your food is ready. Our food took about 5 minutes and by then the queue to order was getting pretty big so I’m glad we arrived when we did.
We both thought the burgers were good. They were nice and fresh, the meat was juicy and there was the right amount of cheese and fillings. We didn’t find them as greasy as Shake Shack ones. The sweet potato fries were so good, but I found the cheesy fries not as nice as the cheese sauce was a bit too plasticky!
Our meal cost 106QR which wasn’t too expensive. We’d go back especially as it’s so nice to walk around the park afterwards and burn off the Bulgeri burger calories. I wouldn’t consider it to be best burger in Doha but it’s definitely a contender!
