Are you in Turin and are you suddenly craving hamburgers? When it comes to the perfect hamburger experience in Turin, the city offers a diverse range of options to cater to every palate. In this post, I’ll explore five exceptional establishments where you can indulge in mouthwatering hamburgers, highlighting the unique characteristics of the Fassona breed and even a vegan option. Whether you’re a meat enthusiast or seeking plant-based alternatives, Turin has something special in store for you.
When I want to eat an hamburgher in Turin, one of my favourite at the moment is Mercato Centrale in Porta Palazzo. It is a vibrant culinary hub that beckons both locals and tourists alike with its tantalizing array of street food delights.
Nestled within the bustling market of Porta palazzo, this food haven offers a delightful selection of hamburghers in Turin. Here you can find traditional Italian snacks like arancini and focaccia, pizza, fish, meat and of course amazing hamburghers. What I like about the place is that the food court takes the entire ground floor, with the food counters all along the walls. You can choose and take a seat and then order the drinks to the waiters. If you want burghers and the people with you aims for pizza or something else, you can all choose different dishes and then eatr all together.
Fassoneria in Via San Massimo
Craving a hamburgher in Turin but you do not want to leave the city centre? In the charming Via San Massimo, right in front of Mole Antonelliana, Fassoneria takes pride in offering gourmet hamburgers made exclusively with Fassona beef. The Fassona breed, originating from Piedmont, is renowned for its tenderness and delicate flavor. At Fassoneria, you’ll savor the true essence of this exceptional breed, expertly cooked to perfection and served with a selection of quality local ingredients. My favorite is “nocciolaburgher”, meat covered with hazelnuts. Pair your burger with their perfectly seasoned fries for a truly memorable dining experience. And try also their desserts, generally home made.
Conceived as the Piedmontese answer to the famous American fast food, M**Bun is a Slow Fast Food. This trendy joint offers a variety of creative hamburgers in Turin made with high-quality ingredients. A dish you should absolutely try is the raw meat presented in three different ways: albese (super thin slices), battuta al coltello (meat chopped with a knife) and the sausage coming from Bra, a village in the Cuneo province.
While they feature a range of meat options, including Piedmontese beef, M**Bun also caters to vegan patrons with their delectable plant-based burger creations. Here you can also find the local soda called MoleCola. In Turin, you can find it here and here.
Located both in the city center and in the renowned Eataly marketplace, Hamburgheria di Eataly combines the best of both worlds: gourmet hamburgers and Italian culinary excellence. While their menu boasts a wide selection of traditional meat-based burgers, Eataly also offers a fantastic vegetarian option. Sink your teeth into their veggie burger, expertly crafted with plant-based ingredients, and delight in the explosion of flavors from fresh vegetables and unique seasonings. Eataly ensures that everyone can enjoy a memorable burger experience.
And if you change your mind at the last moment, you can always opt for a pizza or a fish based meal in one of the many counter Eataly displays.
A building that dates back to the beginning of the 20 century, in the popular and industrial district called Regio Parco, hosts Birrificio Torino, a brewery opened in 2001 by a group of friends who here started to produce their artisanal beer. The restaurant, which is almost always open even during holidays, presents a menu with my favourite hamburgers in Turin but also salads, pizza, and pasta. And of course a great selection of homemade beers. The portions are large and the meat is really well cooked. I tried the pork shank the last time I went, and it was delicious. I also suggest you to try the beeramisu, a tiramisu made with beer. You can eat for some 15 euros.
Turin is a paradise for burger enthusiasts, offering an array of dining experiences that cater to diverse tastes. Whether you seek the exceptional flavors of Fassona beef at Fassoneria, explore creative options at M**Bun, enjoy a vegetarian delight at Eataly, indulge in a classic burger experience at Birrificio Torino, or opt for a vibrant vegan creation at Flower Burger, Turin has something extraordinary for every palate. Embark on a burger journey in this vibrant city and discover the culinary wonders that await you.
Opened in 2019, this unusual restaurant with decorations that recall a Northern Seafood restaurant, prepares what they call “contemporary pizza” and sea-burghers.
Nestled in the heart of the city, Balik prides itself on offering an exceptional dining experience by infusing the beloved burger concept with the finest fish delicacies. With a diverse menu featuring an array of fish burgers, patrons can indulge in a fusion of flavors that tantalize the taste buds. From succulent salmon burgers drizzled with zesty dill sauce to delectable tuna patties paired with refreshing avocado salsa, Balik promises to transport diners on a gastronomic journey like no other. I confess, I still have to try it several times to understand it better, but for sure, the experience is interesting.
For those craving a vibrant and entirely plant-based burger experience, Flower Burger is a true delight. Their colorful and Instagram-worthy burgers are crafted with a combination of fresh vegetables, grains, and legumes. Bursting with flavor and creativity, these vegan burgers offer a feast for the eyes and taste buds. I’m not vegan, and I certainly prefer meat to something that pretends to, but this place is a good option when you are out with vegan or vegeratian frends.
