The burgers you can't miss

Those who follow gastronomic accounts on social networks will have seen these days the fantasies that hamburger eaters had brought to the city. From a burger made with Gublins, that crunchy snack, to which he brought Eneko Fernández, winner of the MasterChef 11 program, the “Guinness Burger”, a new concept of hamburger gourmet with the iconic black beer as an unprecedented ingredient.
We also liked: Ryan Motais Cheek (very balanced and with a slightly spicy sauce), the Don de Asado Burgers (pulled pork with peach sauce and special mayonnaise), the Crazy Tarantín Bug (with smoked cheese fondue in the middle and the famous Gucci sauce syringe so you can enjoy an extra cheese shot) and Juana la Cubana by double Bière (wood-fired suckling pig, caramelized peanuts and habanera sauce. Very complicated but delicious!)
we fell in love Jenkins' Emmy (with black angus meat and a sauce that you will love) and All Star Franklin from The Ranch Smokehouse (very carnivorous, with a delicious sauce and a wonderful smoky touch).
The burger “La Manuela” was one of the most daring burgers and was applauded by the Barcelona public. with bread Brioche potato, 2 discs smash of 70 grams of organic beef rested for two weeks, caramelized onion with Ratafia by Alquimia liqueur, smoked provolone, bacon jam, chistorra mayonnaise and pork rinds.
And of course, the winner of this edition. The proposal of the Malaga restaurant Gottan with the burger “Lil Wayne”, a minced aged ribeye, cheddar cheese, crispy onion, bacon cooked 48 hours at low temperature inspired by Kikanbo ramen, Louisiana-style sauce and bacon bits.
In conclusion, “The Champions Burger” is a celebration of gastronomy and culinary creativity, where both chefs and the public play a crucial role in the search for the best burger. With its festive atmosphere and an impressive variety of options, the festival promises to be an unforgettable event for all lovers of good food.
