Top 5 burgers in Stockholm

The best burgers in Stockholm!

Hi, Fabian here.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen the burger hype grow stronger and stronger worldwide, and Stockholm is no exception. If you’re looking for a great burger while in Stockholm, there are plenty of places that won’t disappoint you. I always order a classic cheeseburger, because if you can’t make something as simple as that taste good then it doesn’t matter how many creative options you have the menu. This is my top 5 list of burgers in Stockholm.

Flippin’ Burgers

Observatoriegatan 8, Stockholm
Flippin’ is the starter of the Swedish burger hype—and the hype is real. For me, they still hold the crown of the best burger in Stockholm. Maybe it’s because they haven’t expanded like their competitions have. They have however opened up other restaurants, but with different concepts, such as Lådan and Dogfood. Flippin’ have been running the show since its birth, and the king is not dead yet—this year they declared that they’re going to work with even better ingredients from local suppliers. For vegetarian they have a crispy bean-based option.

Franky’s famous burgers

Tegnérgatan 16, Stockholm
This little gem was first located in a small kiosk outside of Hard Rock Café but moved to Tegnérgatan in 2017. They only have a few seats, so get here early if you want to grab a spot. Unfortunately, they don’t have a meat-free option yet, but we can only hope it’s as tasty as the rest of the menu when they do. With their super tasty burgers (order Franky’s favorite, off the menu) at great prices, this is still one of the best-kept burger secrets in Stockholm.

Barrels – burger and beer

Stora Nygatan 20 – Smålandsgatan 22 – Bysistorget

Barrels first opened up in Gamla Stan (Old Town) but have now spread to the city and will open a restaurant in Södermalm any day now.

They have several different tasty craft burgers on the menu, including a veggie option that is really good. The concept is nicely composed and well executed all the way throughout the experience, including the interior. If you’re looking for a place to eat and have a few beers with your friends, then you should definitely check out Barrels. Don’t forget to check out their monthly burger.

Bastard Burger

Rehnsgatan 22
Hailing from Luleå, Bastards Burgers is the king of the north when it comes to burgers. They conquered Norrland before making their way down to Stockholm, and the success is withstanding. The reviews have been great from the start, and even though I wasn’t impressed the first time I visited their joint in Vasastan, I’m glad to call myself a Bastard now. A plus is their selection of vegetarian or vegan options.

Phil’s Burger

Phil’s Burger is the probably the gourmet burger chain that has been growing the most over the last couple of years. They now have eight restaurants spread out in Stockholm, Uppsala and Eskilstuna, and rumor has it that they are planning to add more locations to their list quite soon.

Funky Chicken food truck

If you happen to be in the same area as Funky Chicken’s food truck, you better hurry up and get in line before they sell out. Their simple and delicious burgers with smashed patties are almost too good to be true, so if you get there in time you better get yourself a triple cheeseburger. You won’t regret it. You’re most likely to find them in Nacka Strand or at Hornstull’s Market on the weekends.

Eatnam – Vietnamese street food

Vasastan goes Saigon

What happens when you put Vietnamese street food in a bistro setting in Stockholm? The answer spells Eatnam—a really chill little corner restaurant where the food is nice and spicy, the staff friendly and helpful, and the vibes are just on point.

Both of us are like really into Asian food, but we don’t eat it nearly as often as we like or should. We often end up freestyling some tofu wok in our own kitchen, or steaming a few frozen bao buns from our local Asian supermarket and filling them with all the good stuff we can think of. However, every now and then, we treat ourselves by going to someone who actually knows how it’s supposed to taste. After some Christmas shopping in central Stockholm, we ended up taking the green line up to Odenplan to indulge in crispy spring rolls and homemade lemonade while going to town on a big bowl of noodles with pork and tofu.

At Eatnam, they share with their own favorite dishes their grandmother cooked in the southern parts of Saigon. Fresh herbs, fish sauce, noodles, and broths are recurring ingredients in everything on their menu, which is filled with dishes such as Pho (noodle soup), Goi coun (fresh spring rolls) and bun ba xao (noodle salad). From what we’ve heard, seasoning your food, especially your Pho, is a common thing in Vietnam. Therefore, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, limes and fish sauce are always close to hand.

This is not really the place to go to if you’re going out for dinner, but it’s a great spot if you’re looking for a nice lunch or a casual and tasty meal after work on a Thursday.

Vegetarian friendly

You don’t have to be a carnivore to enjoy a meal at Eatnam. And if you’re not sure on what to order, just ask the staff for recommendations and they’ll help you out.
