POP Burger (New York, NY)

POP Burger is probably the trendiest burger place you'll ever find. In 2005 I stumbled upon the original POP Burger by accident. It is in the Meatpacking District, close to the West Village, but I was never able to find it again (I also forgot the name). Recently, I found the second location, equally trendy, though in upper Manhattan.

The famous POP Burgers come by the two for $6.75: they are small and simple, but also thick and juicy. We also ordered the Invisible Burger ($8.75), a huge vegetarian burger made of perfectly seasoned and fried portobella mushrooms. M. still raves about it! In addition, we had a side of french fries, which were also battered and crunchy (bit like the BK fries). I am not a big fan of battered fries, but M really liked them.

VERDICT: 93/100
POP Burger is a must visit in New York. Open till late, it provides fantastic little burgers and other snacks. And if you are a vegetarian, you won't easily find a better veggie burger then here. In fact, M. gave them a 99, near perfect!
