Hamborgarfabrikkuborgarinn, One of the World’s Best Burgers

Departure.com has made a list of the world’s 11 best hamburgers, one of which is from Hamborgarfabrikkan on Höfðatorg, next-door to the Iceland Review offices on Borgartún in Reykjavík.

As they say … “Grabbing a burger abroad can be a perfect introduction to the flavors and ingredients of a foreign culinary scene in a way that is familiarly delicious. After all, most international burger restaurants are fabulously committed to putting their own stamp on the American delicacy.”

On the list are burger joints in faraway places, such as Santiago, Chile, Queenstown, New Zeeland and Cape Town, South Africa.

The Signature Burger at Hamborgarafabrikkan is Hamborgarfabrikkuborgarinn, or ‘The Factory Burger.’ It’s one of the simplest on the menu: a quarter pound of Icelandic beef topped with cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion and the Factory sauce.
