Burger Wonderland | Prozdor, Tel Aviv

Om Nom Nomad - Prozdor

I love a good burger, who doesn’t? That’s why I’m always on the lookout for great burger joints. Some prefer to keep it classic – bun, patty, lettuce, tomato and onion. Not me. I love my burger topped with much more – and then some (and maybe even stuffed with extra things). The more creative and over-the-top it is, the better. Prozdor do not disappoint when it comes to surprising and wacky creations.

Another Day, Another Burger | The Butchers Club Burger, Hong Kong

Om Nom Nomad - The Butchers Club Burger

Finding the ultimate burger is a never ending quest. One that I stick by even when in remote destinations that aren’t often associated with burgers. Such is the case with our visit to Hong Kong. Opened in 2014 in Wan Chai, The Butchers Club Burger prides itself on using premium meat and serving a limited menu of burger, beer and bourbon. It’s considered to be one of the best in the country and was even included in Michelin Guide 2016 and 2017.

Florentin Brunch | Steve’s Food-Bar, Tel Aviv

Om Nom Nomad - Oggie's

Shuk Levinsky is becoming a very interesting neighborhood in the culinary sense. With new restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and gastro pubs, opening up constantly, and lot of available parking space nearby (a rare commodity in Tel Aviv), it has become one of our favorite go-to areas. To name a few interesting establishments: Ouzeria expanded to open the sister restaurant Ouzeria Next Door (fantastic food, high VFM but we didn’t enjoy the service), a great and decadent American bakery named Sweet Box opened up (don’t miss their huge decadent cinnamon bun) and Fifi’s, a tiny Thai place which created a buzz and amassed long queues.

A culinary (carnival) ride | Straw – San Francisco

When one of my colleagues got back from a business trip in San Francisco he told me about this magical wonderland; a place taken straight from the fairytales; one that serves a doughnut burger. From that moment on I knew – that doughnut had to be mine!

Black buns, rice buns and cyanide colored float drinks – our experience in Tokyo’s fast food burger joints

Visiting fast food joints while abroad is a little guilty pleasure of ours. While we rarely eat McDonald’s and the like at home, we love to experience what it’s like in other countries, especially when they have unique, local menus. Japan is no different, offering some interesting takes on the all-American burger. During our visit to Tokyo we tried 3 different fast food burger joints.

The Quirkiest Burger Joint in Harajuku | Fellows Burger, Tokyo

Fellows Burger is a Great gem hidden in the side streets of Harajuku. We arrived for lunch and joined the line in front of this extremely narrow building. The local Tokyo crowd simply looooves to queue, and by that time, after two weeks in Tokyo, we practically felt like locals and didn’t mind the hour-long wait.
