To Burger or Not To Burger?

Is that ever really a question?

After having a tremendously overpriced Burger King “burger” at the airport before our trip to Rome two weeks ago (more details on that soon!), I was left with a bad taste in my mouth – literally.


This is not a joke.

For a while I had been searching online for the ‘best burgers of Geneva’, reading reviews on all the expat websites’ forums and the blog Dear Geneva’s own Best of Burgers list, which I take to be a credible source.

Finally, this past Saturday, F and I made our way to one of the alleged best: Inglewood. For all of my Chicago friends and readers: not the Inglewood we know and love (but mostly fear) but a safer Inglewood, a place where diverse meats (beef, chicken, and other) that are destined to be burgers end up when they die and go to heaven – if they’re lucky.


So much variety!

F ordered a more classic cheesy-saucy-bacon burger, the Cain Cain, while I opted for the first to catch my eye: the Honey Goat, a bacon-mustard-honey-goat cheese delicacy (If you’ve read my post on Annecy and the tartiflette, then this choice shouldn’t come as a surprise). Each burger also comes with a fresh salad containing arugula (another current favorite) and crispy fries. They even provide you with a large ketchup bottle – as opposed to making you pay 0.60 francs for a tiny ketchup packet (I’m looking at you, Burger King).


The goat cheese is peeking through!

The service was quick and nice, the burger was cooked to perfection and we were so pleased that we had to top it all off with an Oreo cheesecake (yes!).


Wayyy better than those Hershey's Sundae Pies - yep, I said it.

So many calories and so much happiness. I highly recommend it. For those of you that live, work or study near the University of Geneva, it’s just outside and to the right (how convenient!), and for those who don’t: it’s just across from the Uni-Mail stop on the 15 tram line.

Check out their website for more details and for information on reservations – apparently they’re necessary at peak hours!
