4. Dona Julieta

R. Alexandre Dumas, 1614 (R. Antônio de Oliveira)
São Paulo, SP
Country: Brazil

Description: Dona Julieta is a local neighborhood cafe in São Paulo. They have few variations on burgers and I ordered the bacon cheeseburger. The burger features cheese, bacon, beef, and a sesame seed bun.

Overall, the burger is your average bar burger. The standout ingredient was the bacon, which comes in a cubed form and is pretty flavorful. The cheese also had a pretty unique flavor that complemented the bacon well. The beef was not overly juicy, nor was the bun amongst the best I've had.

If you're having a burger craving Dona Julieta will satisfy, but the best burgers in Brazil are elsewhere.

3. General Prime Burger

R. Joaquim Floriano, 541 - Itaim Bibi
São Paulo, SP
Country: Brazil

Description: General Prime Burger is part of the burger revolution going on in São Paulo. General Prime's menu is focused almost exclusively on unique burgers and other comfort food.

At General Prime Burger I ordered the Jack Daniel's BBQ Burger, which is served on a "black bun". The burger features frizzled onions, cheese, Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce, lettuce, bacon, tomato, and the black bun. The bun was well toasted and crisp. The cheese had a unique texture there was a hint of smoke in the sauce used on the burger. The sauce/cheese had a unique flavor that overwhelmed the rest of the burger. The onion strings complemented the texture well, but the beef was not as juicy as a premium cut of Brazilian beef that I would expect.

Overall, this burger has great flavor profile and a juicier piece of beef would have really made it stand out. The flavors don't quite mix perfectly and I think a sharper cheddar and more vinegary/sweet BBQ flavor would really make the bacon and beef shine (especially without pickles on the burger).

2. Hamburgeria Nacional

Rua Leopoldo Couto de Magalhães Júnior, 822, Itaim Bibi
São Paulo, SP
Country: Brazil

Description: Hamburgeria Nacional is located in central São Paulo and is an upscale burger joint focusing on the business/dating crowd. The menu features a variety of burgers, but their Kobe burger is the standout.

The Kobe Burger focuses strictly on beef and I ordered mine with just cheddar and bacon. My beef came a little undercooked (ordered medium) atop a soft white toasted bun. I tried a few bites without any sauces to see if the Kobe beef was worth its price. I quickly determined the beef could be more juicy and use more seasoning. I added some ketchup and mustard to the package to add some seasoning. Bite after bite I was hoping to unlock that magical Kobe flavor and it wasn't there.

At the end of the day this burger lacked some classic elements. I think some onions, pickles, and a house provided sauce would have done a lot to dress this burger up. Also, this Kobe beef did nothing to impress me and tasted no different from an undercooked burger off a grill in someone's backyard. For 70 real ($30) this burger was a disappointment. Much better burgers are only a few blocks away.
