You should definitely try this special flavor, which includes grilled pineapple with butter, smoked turkey, pickled red onion, Kars belly cheese, and Brown Butter mayonnaise.

For burger addicts, Akali is a heaven on the earth. So, the place has two branches in Akaretler and Etiler. On the other hand, you will love the special Truffle Salsa sauce, which has a taste we have not tasted before. Furthermore, the burger has 80, 160, 240 grams (we usually prefer 240 because it is delicious!) And its side flavors. Avocado cream, Jack BBQ sauce, and jalapeno mash are among our favorites.
8- The Grungy, Teşvikiye
There is a burger place we love very much in Hüsrev Gerede, one of the busiest streets of Teşvikiye. So, the Grungy appears as a tiny white shop on the left of this street. Our favorite here is Brie & Honey Burger. The Brie cheese, meat, and honey we tried here for the first time create such harmony in the mouth that you wouldn’t believe it. There are single (120 gr) and double options for meatball selection. Our preference is for double. You can and should also add this to your list.
7- Zula, Harbiye
When we crave street food, we go to Zula without thinking. Why? Because it is a rare place where we can find taco and hot dogs and burgers at the same time and in good quality. We especially love the ketchup and mayonnaise they make their own. Edizione Burger and Frankfurter Hotdog are the ones you cannot give up trying. You must stop by here!
6- Fireroom, Ataşehir
If we are talking about Fireroom, which includes many different flavors such as burger, kokoreç (grilled sheep’s intestines, a traditional Turkish street food), falafel, and churros in its menu, the main thing to eat is obvious: Fatboy Burger. What’s inside? It would be more correct to say what is not: active carbon bread prepared by themselves, 150 gr burger patties, tandoori veal poach cooked for 18 hours, smoked meat, homemade spicy BBQ sauce, double cheddar cheese, pickled gherkins, red onion pickles, and homemade potato chips. What more do you want? This is a really great option for those living on the Anatolian side. Note it!
5- Basta Street Food Bar, Moda
Everybody knows Basta now, but it is, nevertheless, one of the sine qua non of this list. When it comes to street flavor, we are just a fan of Basta’s Lamb Burger, which is one of the most popular places in Istanbul! They serve with 160 gr lamb patties in Brioche bread. Let’s not forget the pickles with eggplant, mayonnaise, and roasted onions. Because they do not explain the harmony they create. Note: Let us remind you that Basta’s hummus is also legendary.
4- J Burger, Kadıköy
As for number 4 on our Best Burgers in Istanbul list, we are before J Burger, Kadıköy. Those who haven’t tried J Burger’s hamburger and special mayonnaise sauce are missing a lot. Especially if you like spicy you should definitely order the Jumboburger, it is simply amazing. Call it a double potato pan in the middle because you want to eat it as you eat it. In short, if you decide to visit this place, make sure you are hungry because you will eat a lot, we are telling you!

What we will eat in Virginia Angus, which have branches in Mercan, Nişantaşı, and Ataşehir, is always clear and unmistakable: Fantastic Four! You ask why?

Four of the meatball burgers, Virginia burger, Turkish delight burger, and Turkish sucuk burger come before you. Then let the flavor feast begin! Do not miss it, set off for Nişantaşı as soon as possible as you will love it!

First, it blows your mind with their fragrances. Then, of course, you repeat it with their delicious burgers. We like BOB XL the most: 280 gr meatballs, cheddar, cheddar cheese, and caramelized onions combined with veal bacon, which we can never give up, combined to create an indispensable flavor!
1- House of B, Akaretler
Here we are at the top of our Best Burgers in Istanbul list. Both the atmosphere and the burgers of House of B are great! The environment is very delightful in the place where the red color is dominant. Moreover, the hamburgers and milkshakes passing in front of you one by one make your mouth water.
