Best hamburgers in Madrid? New York Burger and American barbecue…

I guess this could be controversial…

But I think New York Burger has the best hamburgers in Madrid.

I know, I know.

The burger craze has exploded in the last few years (just 50 years behind the US, as usual). And there are a lot of good burgers to be had around town.

I’ve tried many, not all.

And I’ve gotta say: as an…

  1. American.
  2. Male.
  3. Who’s spent most of the last decade trying to eat more protein.

I think that…

There. I said it.

Recently, I was invited to try their new American Barbecue menu as well.

So off I went, with my beautiful and hungry sidekick La MariMorena, to try the slow-cooked goodness.

The friendly and attractive waitresses quickly brought us plates upon plates of hot, steamy Texan-style barbecue…

Pulled pork tacos, beef ribs (which I had never seen in Spain until this week) and brisket.

Here’s a pic of the ribs…

And pardon my terrible food photography.

(You should see the photos I didn’t post.)

I think the thing I liked best, though, was the brisket.

Beef brisket is something my mom used to make on special occasions – when she had four hours to slow cook something, we had brisket.

However, the brisket at New York Burger is cooked even longer… and apparently over hot coals of imported American wood.

Hehehe… American wood.

(I couldn’t resist… fucking sue me.)

In any case, all the beautiful people were there, at Paseo de la Castellana, 89, gorging themselves on delicious American barbecue and drinking Mahou Maestra…

Myself (ruggedly handsome in a lumbersexual sort of way), La MariMorena (exotically beautiful), and a lot of others. I particularly remember the blonde sitting to my right, who looked like an even hotter version of Wrecking Ball Miley.

The whole meal was – if not paleo, at least primal… and totally awesome.

100% recommended.

New York Burger has several locations around Madrid… just Google it. And don’t forget to make a reservation. They fill up fast.

How did I end up in Madrid? Why am I still here 12 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
