The Hamburger Foundation claims to offer “the best burger in town” no less! Do they? Well, first of all, how hard is it to offer the best burger in Geneva? Most of the burger joints here are not that great anyway. Having said that, THF does offer a quality product, and I would go back every now and then… depending on where they’re located. See, The Hamburger Foundation operates out of a food truck, and you have to check their website or their Facebook page to find out where they’ll be on any given week. I’m very excited the food truck movement is finally taking off in Geneva and I do hope this will lead to more and more quality products at affordable prices.
I also found the staff to be really nice and friendly, and that is definitely something Geneva could use more of. However there are a few things I feel THF needs to work on a little more, for instance the bun (yes the bun, always the bun) is not quite what I would expect from “the best burger in town” though it is OK, but just OK. Furthermore the fries are disappointing at best. I suspect they may even be the frozen type, though I could be wrong. However, what does make The Hamburger Foundation a rather pleasing experience is the quality of the meat, definitely one of the better patties I’ve had in Geneva, it came a little rare to my liking but then again I didn’t specify otherwise. I’ll know to ask for medium rare next time, and hope they get it right.
A cheeseburger, fries and a drink will run you about CHF 20.- I guess that is what you would expect in this city.
One final point about The Hamburger Foundation: seriously people, if you’re handling my food, please throw on some form of hat or hairnet or something!
