The Art of the Burger
When I am asked about where to have a burger in Nicosia, my reaction is almost instant... Artisan's
I had been waiting for something like this for a while and I am glad that it arrived in this fashion because I love burgers (I even get frequent burger cravings).
A burger is a simple thing and if you get the basics right (i.e. the beef), then there's a million things you can do to bring it to the next level. Fortunately for Nicosians, Artisan's does it right. The patty is 100% top quality beef (not too many spices in it or other stuff) so you can really taste the meat and it is huge.
I've tried to squeeze out of the owner the proportions of different beef cuts that they use but to no avail, it's a well-kept secret :) Your burger will also be cooked just the way you want it (one of the very few places in town right now that asks you how you want your burger cooked). You get a choice of 3 types of buns.
I've so far tried 6 of their burgers and my favorite is the one with blue cheese and dried fig , even though the one with crispy bacon and spicy barbecue sauce is a close second. I plan to try them all.
The atmosphere is pretty casual and pleasant and the service is really good. I do look forward to seeing more beers in the selection but the ones already there are great.
They also deliver, through Mr. Delivery. The prices are very reasonable. A burger and side should set you back between €12-€15 and when you consider what you're getting in terms of the amount of meat in the burger and the quality ingredients it is a great value for money.
