Burger Fabriek Express Amsterdam

Since I came back from Holland, I never stop thinking and planning of writing something about the food trips we had in that foreign land. It is always my line that the country is really the other part of the world. Yes, literally, the Philippines (which is in the south east) and the Netherlands (which is in the north west) are in about the half way of the world. Though six thousand miles away from each other, I still had figure out that the way I love fries from home is still the way I love it in the other side. It is just that, I have an additional reason to give in to it because it is the staple food of Dutch people.

Every time we go out driving, it is always be FRIES on my must-to-eat list. And because fries should come with something, most of the time, I have burger with it or frikandel (will talk in separate post).


It was late night of that day when we found ourselves in the street of Nieuwendijk in Amsterdam. I will always nag for a serving of fries. I don't mind if it is Belgian, French or Dutch fries but the Farmer's fries is definitely my favorite among all.

Wait, I should not be talking about fries here for the post is all about the Burger Fabriek. Anyways, it doesn't matter. Right?

How did we get into this burger shop in Amsterdam? We are actually looking for a store of bags for my cousin, and it took us hours before we finally found one. So after buying her Kipling sling bag for a cheaper price (everything is on sale when we were there), everyone felt tired and hungry.

There we found Burger Fabriek.

Hollandse Burger - Red Light Burger with fries and dips (ketchup and mayo)

I had the Red Light Burger for myself and it is a combination of grilled Blonde d'Aquitaine with red onion, Old Amsterdam cheese, pickle, lettuce and delicious grill sauce (at least that was what’s stated in the menu).

But how it taste like is just an ordinary burger, if my tastebuds serve me well. My boyfriend had their Amerikaanse Burger. It is with Black Angus burger patty with onion, pickle, tomato, lettuce, cheddar and BBQ sauce. And I like it.

Amerikaanse Burger

And as the picture justifies my verdict, you can see the cracks on the bun. I do not know if it is old or it is just dry. They serve the burgers with a skewer in the middle.

Danger Dog with Fries

My cousin, she conciously picked the Hotdog Sandwich because she simply thought that even it is named Danger, it will stay small as the sanwich she knows. Surprisingly, the hotdog itself is way longer than the bread. It comes with bacon, creamy cheese and crispy onion. This one, I also find good, but ofcourse, not for every time.

The fries was not as good as those I had in my first week in The Netherlands. But what I like the most about the fries there is that it always come with variety of dips and sauces. Sometimes, it is with peanut sauce, barbeque sauce, cheese, onion, mayo, mayo in garlic, salsa, mustard and a lot, not only ketchup.

I will recommend to try the Amerikaanse Burger. It has different flavors bursting in a bite.

When and where did you had your last burger bites?
