Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Quality burgers at Oval Barcelona
Oval is what you get when you team gourmet burgers with upscale interior design. Sure there has been a re-emergence of burger joints in Barcelona, with the likes of Kiosko frequently packed with carnivores, but Oval does offer a different sensibility.
The façade has an enigma to it, not only is it subtle but the little that is presented in terms of brand and design is done so neatly. There isn’t that typical diner culture with a mock jukebox at the front or lots of retro ideology at all, in fact the design studio Flexoarquitectura have created a space that resonates with construction. The beams, exposed brick wall, mismatched chairs etc, reflects a do-it-yourself vibe, and this philosophy also applies when ordering your burger.
If you can’t eat gluten, perhaps hate gouda cheese but love cheddar or just tend to be rather specific with how you like your burger, this place is great as you can order your burger to prefernce. A neat checklist simply presents options for you to choose from, these range from different types of meat to a variety of sauces (including chipotle alioli and mango picante), caramelized onions, mushrooms, pineapple, avocado and much more. On this occasion I went ahead with a less creative option, chicken, cereal bun, pineapple, allioli, tomato, salad and a portion of fries. I like the way that you put your name on the order, gives a nice bit of personalisation when the waitress brings your burger and addresses you by your name.
