Hello burger lovers,
The last days of the year are approaching, but the quest isn't over yet. This review is about Oscar's, some might know it by the former name Oscar Wilde's. Situated in the Grund, just next to Mosconi and Kamakura, someone might think that this is the culinary corner of Luxembourg. The bar has been completely refurbished, and runs under a new management.
Oscar's offers several burgers with either a hot beef patty, a regular patty or a veggie patty. I obviously went for the hot one, but added cheese and bacon (other options were blue cheese or an egg). The whole burger, with fries, salad and coleslaw, was 11,75€. A nice deal!
From a visual point of view, the burger was a disappointment. The pressed soft fluffy buns (at least they were toasted from the inside) killed my mood instantly. The presentation of the burger wasn't nice at all. The coleslaw and salad seemed just to be smacked on the plate next to the fries. This is something I didn't appreciate since the dressing touched my fries... brrr. The fries were good, maybe a bit too big for my taste but crisp and tasty. The beef was awesome. Honestly I didn't think anything could save this burger, but the most important ingredient, the beef, was spectacular. The beef was spicy, perfectly cooked and the 250gr were just so tasteful. The cheddar cheese was nicley melt, and the lettuce was fresh. The burger sauce, which was under the lettuce wasn't noticeble though. The bacon was thin and was very well seasoned, I enjoyed it.
I was quite surprised by this burger. With a few amendments, f.ex. presentation and buns, this one has the potential of being a really good burger.
