What's the very BEST damned burger in Taipei?

Now you know where they got it.

I’m sticking with Punch Burger. Good quality, properly cooked, good atmosphere. It tastes like something I would like to make myself.

Punch mmmm…

Kua’aina is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best burger I’ve had in any currently operating provider.
Been there several times, and every time it’s fucking mind blowing.

Me, I’d strongly reccie the pineapple and bacon cheeseburger.
Just plain fucking awesome.

The only thing keeping it from being perfect is their fries, which are pretty meh, but still not bad.

I can’t recommend it enough, seriously :+1::hamburger::+1:

Went to B!ng near City Hall the other day. It was good.

Oh God, are you trying to seduce me Mrs Rocketson?

1885 Burger Store was always my favorite, but I moved and haven’t been there for awhile.

If a raccoon likes it, I figured it might be just garbage—or it actually might be good.

I decided to put my money on the latter and made my way to City Hall MRT Station today to sample one of Kua’aina’s burgers. The lunch I had today in no way made me forget the STUNNING food I had on Big Island, including a fantastic burger I had in Kona made with grass-fed Big Island beef. Kua’aina’s food is nowhere near that good. But here in Taipei, this is not bad—a nice space, clean, with some tables adjacent to big windows overlooking a pleasant rooftop garden. Fresh ingredients, decent shoestring fries, and the option to wash it back with a cup of more-than-decent whole leaf Assam black tea which I really enjoyed. For those that are into such things, this place is pretty clearly Hawai’i routed through Japan (the only other customers I saw today were speaking Japanese) before arriving here in Taiwan. I have no idea if it will last. But in the meantime, it’s a nice addition to the City Hall area.

I don’t remember much apart from being disappointed (I think). But this was many years ago.

Nice read.

I go every couple months to try again. Not recommended.
