While I will not deny that there are very few times that a McDonald's spicy chicken meal won’t satisfy my hankering for a burger, sometimes I want to go the extra mile, and bite into a hefty burger with all trimmings—a cloud-like brioche bun embellished with sesame seeds that’s all the rage these days, a crunchy (or juicy!) patty, crisp lettuce, and a flavourful medley of sauces. Bonus if there are pickles and onions thrown into mix. Have I got you drooling yet? Then put these burger spots in Mumbai, Delhi, and Bengaluru on speed dial, like, right now!
Good Flippin’ Burgers
Good Flippin’ has a cult following in the city for a reason—their burgers seem to hit the spot, every single time. With soft, sesame-studded buns and crispy, buttermilk-fried chicken in their famous Cluckinator, to crisp lettuce and a wholesome vegetarian patty in their Bean Bomb burger, you’ll have a hard time picking a favourite. Plus, they always get their filling-to-bun ratio on point, meaning no dry spots or burgers falling apart!
One of the many burger cloud kitchens in the city, Boss Burger differentiate themselves by not only getting the classics like the smashed burgers right but also offering clever inventions like the Chicken Parm burger and the Truffle Shroom burger (a must-try for vegetarians!).
Woodside Burger Shop
Woodside Inn has built a name over the past decade and more for serving the best pub grub, and their signature burgers are part of the reason for their popularity. Now, they have a separate delivery kitchen dedicated to serving their famous burgers. Expect unique creations like the Crunchy Pesto Paneer burger, the Goan Pork Chorizo Burger, or the Tokyo Teriyaki Chicken burger.
Aku’s - The Burger Co.
Aku’s has been an institution in the capital when it comes to burgers—their offerings have been a favourite with Delhiites for years now. Vegetarians shouldn’t miss Master Wu, which has an umami wild mushroom-based patty, or the Chalapeno. Prefer your burgers to be heartier? Try The Meister which has a lamb patty. For the sides, try chicken nuggets, onion rings, and more.
Burgerama is one of the burger cloud kitchens in Delhi-NCR that deliver deliciousness right to your doorstep, making them perfect for instant cravings. From their elaborate menu, pick the Double Bacon Cheeseburger if you’re a cheese lover, or go for the Farmsworth for a dose of vegetarian goodness.
Burger Seigneur, which has multiple outlets spread throughout the city, doles out deliciously wholesome burgers—from the Dynamite lamb burger that has nachos in the filling, to their popular Lucien burger that features a thick Portobello patty nestled in pillow-soft burger buns.
Truffles is another crowd-favourite in Bengaluru that does amazing burgers, apart from a classic comfort spread that includes pasta, grilled meats, desserts, and more. On the extensive menu, you’ll find options like Tex Mex Chicken burger, Sloppy Joe burger, and Peri Peri burger among others. Don’t give their truffle rooster a miss, it is their signature and has chargrilled chicken slathered with a secret sauce. Wash it down with their indulgent milkshakes.
