Burgers in Thessaloniki

Not much to write about, just that it's one of my favorite foods.

Unfortunately in Thessaloniki I still havent found a proper burger. Ok I found a few (but not all of these down below). Not even once we were given a medium, medium rare beef patty, so nothing really came close to the top, like Patty & Bun or Bar Boulud.

For me the ideal burger is in a brioche with a medium to medium rare patty and little other things inside.

Το Μανιτάρι, BBQ burger with mushrooms. It needed something extra as it was dry. 

Sly Fox, Nicely cooked meaty patty and brioche. Bad fries and onion rings. (CLOSED)

Be, Excelsior Hotel. Bacon cheeseburger. Very good and nice fries. 

B restaurant. Burger with roquefort. Excellent hand cut fries.

El correo cucina argentina. Nice roasted potatos. 

Pax Homemade burgers. Very good burger with blue cheese. Nice fries with 1 euro extra.

Blacklime. Nice burger, but bad fries, so there it is, a salad. 

Brothers in law. Acapulco burger, beef patty, cheddar, tomato, black pepper and lime mayo, guacamole and bacon. I found the fries quite average but the burger was very good. 

Goodys, extreme burgers, Black pepper. Maybe not in the same category as the other ones, but I still prefer this over some poshier more expensive ones.

Foodporn, Proksenou Koromila str. Heseinburger. Black Angus patty in a brioche with smokey mayo lettuce tomato and prosciutto. I liked the smokey flavor but  the fries were extremely seasoned. Generally maybe my last choice from the burgers here. 

Canteen, Nice burger with very good patty and a huge portion of french fries. One of the best in the city. 

La Pasteria, burger with pesto, mozarella and gnocchi. The patty was very good, although at around 13 euros it is the most expensive.

Hyatt Hotel, The burger was nice with very tasty patty made ''a la greque''. French fries should have been fresh and hand cut, especially for the price of 14 euros.
