The burger joint that feeds your soul

The burger joint that feeds your soul

You know a restaurant is doing something right when it opens at not one, not two but four different locations in a span of two years. Hermanos became an established burger restaurant chain in Malta in no time and is widely lauded as one of the island’s best burger joints… this is why I’ve been desperate to try it out first hand. So I figure it’s time to get down and dirty and drop the fork and knife.   

The menu is refreshingly straightforward and pretty much burger-concentrated. They offer, in fact, just burgers and their usual (or not so usual) accompaniments. Still, that does not mean a lack of choice, and trust me, I’m not complaining. A  good ol’ greasy burger is exactly what I’m here for.   

At Hermanos, each and every freshly made burger is associated with a different city, telling its story through a specific selection of quality ingredients and mix of authentic flavours. With over 22 burgers to choose from (and cities to explore), the juicy meaty hamburgers take centre stage. Because let’s be honest – a burger is, traditionally a meat-based dish. So I felt it was crucial to taste the meatiest burger they had on offer, which also happens to be their number one best seller (duh!).

Let me introduce you to the Royal Chicago Bacon, or rather, the one that will make you believe in love; three of the juiciest beef patties, three slices of American cheese, a massive load of bacon finished off with crispy onions and mayo and enclosed in a brioche bun toasted to perfection. The beef for the patties is fresher than ever and prepared daily, guaranteeing the juiciest of the juiciest meat and the flavour simply translates with every bite. Did I mention the side of fries and cheesy breadsticks i.e. tequenos? What more could you possibly wish for in life?

I also sample one of their chicken delights; the Havana inspired burger with buttermilk chicken, a generous amount of cheddar cheese, caramelised onions, topped off with a fried egg and creamy mayo…why you ask?  Because life is short and nobody’s got time to count calories.  

The Hermanos experience is not limited to carnivores as they have also mastered their very own mean vegetarian burger, with possibly more to follow.   

Hermanos have created something worth returning to again and again and again… a cure for fast food cravings made of high-quality burgers, side dishes and generous portions. What used to be a little haven in Paceville two years ago has now grown x4 and really has become accessible to literally everyone. We can’t wait to be back… or get the Hermanos experience from the comfort of our own sofa! Let’s do this again!
