For almost a decade, Burgermeester has been Amsterdam’s g-to address for tasty gourmet burgers, inspired by the European cuisine. Starting out in the hip and happening Pijp district in 2007, founders Justus de Nijs and Dion Eggen challenged themselves to create the best burgers possible. “We wanted to turn a fast-food product into a quality product, something we could be proud of. So from the start we have worked exclusively with quality meats and the best herbs, spices, toppings and sides,” says Justus. “And we wanted to add some very European flavours to our burgers,” Eggen chips in.
