Bunsen burger ranked as 7th best in Europe

“Nothing beats a good burger,” says Big 7 Travel. According to their website, Dublin’s Bunsen ranks highly among Europe’s top fifty burgers.

Bunsen, a Dublin burger chain, has beaten off stiff competition amongst the best of Europe’s burger chains to rank amongst the top ten of an esteemed list of 50 competitors.

Bunsen, which has some of the best student-friendly deals in Dublin, is one of Ireland’s prime burger joints with chains in Dublin, Cork, and Belfast, finished strong in seventh place, the Emerald Isle’s highest ranking on the list.

Big 7 Travel pits itself as an alternative travel website to the giants of TripAdvisor and Google Reviews, stating it “provides current, curated recommendations you can trust”, and goes about its job “expertly.”

The website states it provides inspirational bucket-list destinations and helps millions to “discover their world” by having their “finger on the pulse for all the latest travel trends”. The website operates globally rather than on a national or continental basis.

Big 7 Travel prepared the list for aspiring travellers of the European continent, and they provide the perfect choices for those burger-lovers in need of a feast during their adventure.

The website asked their audience for suggestions on the matter and took contributions from Big 7 Travel’s editorial team. The result, they say, is “one impressive list of the best burgers all over the continent”.

The burgers considered range from all over Europe, from east to west and north to south. The list has you covered from Bratislava, Slovakia to Rome, Italy.

Ahead of Ireland’s best was Barrels Burgers & Beer, a chain in Stockholm, the Bamba Marha Burger Bar of Budapest in fifth, Patty and Bun in London at fourth, and DISH in Prague at third.

In second place was Gasoline Grill from Copenhagen, Denmark, and Big 7 Travel’s premier burger can be purchased at Burger and Beyond, in the English capital of London.

Big 7 Travel revealed that locals “are obsessed with this chain, and it’s not hard to see why. Bunsen make their own buns, grind the beef, and keep things remarkably simple with a small menu. The shakes are an added bonus”.

Bunsen wasn’t the only Irish burger to make the list. Wow Burger, based in the capital city of Dublin, ranked an excellent 38th spot on the list, noted as the “perfect burger for either the start of a night out or on the way home from the bar”.
