Bentley’s – good burger, good price

2014-03-09 13.19.53

The hamburger as we know it today dates back more than one hundred years to the US and it has been in a constant change of evolution. When I first moved to Spain, hamburgers were anything but good. An ackward piece of debatable meat between two slabs of bread and nasty ketchup was what you got when you ordered a burger. Through the years, we have evolved as has our appreciation for the patty. Since it is no surprise that I am a hamburger fan, I am always on the hunt for “the one”. I recently visited Bentley’s on Alcala Street and although it isn’t “the one” it is a very good hamburger.

Decorated in a swanky American joint style with dark wooden panel walls and tables. There is a terrace area at the entrance on the corner of Alcala and Nuñez de Balboa Street. I got a kick out of their hall of fame, which is not a wall with pictures of actors and musicians but of customer’s, those with a stomach brave enough to endure a 1kg hamburger. So if you are up to the task, you can be one of the lucky few to make a name for yourself in burgur history books.

We tried the burgers and the onion rings. I have heard that their carrot cake is good but we didn’t make it to dessert.

The onion rings were good but not to die for.
