Summary

At first glance this place looks like one of those salad-centric, sandwiches with arugula on multi-grain bread kind of places. Not somewhere you'd go for a burger. But truth is they produce a pretty good burger. As usual, the meat was not quite juicy enough and the grind was a little too fine making it a little "chewy". But seasoning was good.

Restaurant Review for The Burgers at Loreto Garden Bar - Buenos Aires

I’m still looking for a great burger in Buenos Aires. Today the quest took me to Colegiales on the edge of Belgrano at Virrey Loreto near Conesa ... to Loreto Garden Bar. This is a cozy little restaurant hidden in a residential section of Colegiales.

Sure enough. They had three burgers on the menu so I ordered up the Mexican. It arrived in short time and included a little romaine lettuce salad and some rustic potatoes. Not fries but an admirable substitute.

Odd to find three burgers on the same menu with a bevy of salads, sandwiches on ultra-whole-wheat bread and other hippy-type menu items. I suppose that’s an advantage just in case someone you are out with for dinner or lunch is a vegetarian (although I can’t imagine why anyone would have friends that don’t eat meat ).

First bite scared me a little. I could tell the grind of the beef wasn’t course enough and that there just wasn’t enough fat in this puppy. It wasn’t dripping on the plate as any good burger should. At least it had a plate. That’s more than we can say for the burger at the Burger Joint. But as I took another bite this little burger began to grow on me. It was cooked just as ordered, slightly pink in the very center. And seasoned rather strongly although I can’t really say what with. The lettuce and other condiments, including avocado slices, were fresh and there was a spicy jalapeño mayonnaise served in a ramekin on the side so you could schmear as much of that spicy creamy goodness on the bun as your heart desired.

Each bite was as good or better than the last. Pretty soon it was all gone. So were the potatoes.

Was it as good as the ½ pound burger at Adair’s in Dallas, Texas. Heck no. But it was a darn site better than the last four we sampled in Buenos Aires.

Looking for a burger? If you’re out Colegiales or Belgrano way ... this is probably your best bet.
