Who doesn’t love a good burger? Be it a veggie burger or a traditional burger, there is something about them that we can’t resist. We found out about Skaptoburger by pure chance. During our stay in beautiful Sofia, we decided to discover the city and its cuisine by going on a food tour.
Tour company Balkan Bites, offers visitors to Sofia a free food tour. That’s right, a free food tour! This was a fantastic way to see Sofia. Whilst, showing you the history of the city they also take you to five restaurants to sample what they have on offer. It was during our tour that we were introduced to Skaptoburger.
Not too far out of the city centre, Skaptoburger is a burger restaurant located at 20 Tsar Shishman Str, Sofia, Bulgaria. Now, be careful as you walk by, as it is a small shop containing about six tables and seats around 30 people and can be easily missed. It can become quite busy, so takeaway might be the best option if you can’t get a table.
So, what makes Skaptoburger so popular? The fact that it has won Sofia’s “King of Burger” Award for two consecutive years is a good indication that their burgers are well received. Plus, the ability to have a good craft beer to wash it all down, makes it a perfect place for me to eat.
On this occasion, we were able to get a table and perused their menu for the burger of our choice. They have eight burgers available from their award winners to their veggie burgers. We decide to order the Skaptoburger burger and the 2016 award-winning Chessus.
The Skaptoburger burger consists of ground beef, crispy bacon, cheddar cheese, jalapeno, red onion, iceberg lettuce, tomato and their special hot burger sauce. A delicious burger with a hot tangy aftertaste. A perfect example of a classic burger.
The play on words named Cheesus, contains ground beef, double cheddar cheese, bacon, pickles, tomato and iceberg lettuce, topped with mustard and tomato sauce (ketchup). I can see why this burger was named the King of Burgers, a little messy to eat, but a wonderful mix of flavours. Simply a gem of a burger and a must try!
Skaptoburger makes great burgers. I would rate it right up there with Fergburger in Queenstown . Thinking about it, it might be the best burger I’ve had! I know big call right! But based on value for money and the exquisite taste it would be close. My recommendation is when you are in Sofia, head to Skaptoburger and try one of their award-winning burgers and tell them, Simon from Ourworldinreview sent you!
