Hamburguinho (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
Avenida Brigadeiro Faria Lima, 2883 - São Paulo, 01452-000, Brazil, T:
+55 11 3078-9461
Hamburguinho (little hamburger) is a new chain of hamburger restaurants that is situated between a fast food and 'real' restaurant. They currently have some 5-10 places in Sao Paulo. I went to the one in the expensive area of Faria Lima, which looks like a hole-in-the-hole with a kind of American setting.
I ordered the Super Two, i.e. a double burger with fries, for R$29 ($17.40). It included two patties, a fried egg, several pieces of bacon, lettuce, tomato, and fries. The fries were well fried, but a bit dry (and they have no acceptable mayo). The patties were a bit dry, but the whole burger was quite tasty (it could have used a nice sauce though).
Acceptable burger and fries, particularly if you prefer ketchup over mayo. Very expensive, but probably affordable for the area.
