this place might not have a large menu (it actually fits on a business card) but everything we tried was awesome! Good value-price combo. it has carved itself a unique place that is neither a restaurant nor a fast food place.

The selection is limited to 4 burgers, but they are all very tasty, especially thanks to the quality meat. It's placed right in heart of the city centre, absolutely worth going if looking for a good burger in that area and at a reasonable price.
