Here Are Moscow's Top Burger Joints – Enjoy

Ferma Burger

Ferma Burger

Pricey burgers in a posh neighborhood

This is the second reincarnation of Ferma, spearheaded by hipster restaurateurs Tardatian and Livsi. Ferma has reopened in a basement location at Patriarch's Ponds, an area well known for its high-end restaurants. At 430 rubles, these are the most expensive burgers on our list. Well-dressed twenty-somethings pair them with a cocktail from the bar. Don't miss Ferma's famous black bun burger with rosemary aioli, onion preserves and chili cheese fries. It's famous for a reason. Delicious.

Burgers/Hot Dogs

Burgers/Hot Dogs

Alternative burgers with a hip crowd

This semi-secret hole-in-the-wall doesn't have a proper name. Instead look for the sign on the door right around the corner from Mayakovskaya metro station which simply says "Burgery/khot-dogi." The crowd is hip — surfers and minor celebrities — and the burgers are only 280 rubles. As the owner makes them to order, service can be a little slow, but it's definitely worth the wait. Try the classic burger which comes with a slice of orange.

Burger Heroes

Burger Heroes

Burgers with a twist

This is one of the newest additions to the Moscow burger scene from the creators of popular Gyros for Heroes. Heroes sells several types of homemade burgers for 300 rubles. For a healthier alternative to French fries, order the sweet potato fries or carrot and parsnip fries. You can watch the whole process in the open kitchen — don't miss the burger with cactus salad.

Haute burgers

Farsh is the brainchild of upscale restaurateur Arkady Novikov, proving that even the elite are partial to a burger every now and then. The restaurant recently opened on newly pedestrianized Nikolskaya Ulitsa. A classic cheeseburger is 250 rubles, while the more complex burgers go for 350 rubles. Farsh prides itself on quality, and uses the excellent supplier Miratorg.

BB Burgers

BB Burgers

Beer, buns and burgers says it all

Double "B" stands for beer and buns. Starting from one venue on Tsvetnoi Bulvar, BBB expanded into a mini-chain with seven locations. Burgers here are a bit more expensive at 380 rubles, but they are largest and the most filling on our list. Don't miss the new "most despicable dude's burger." BBB serves beer and a range of homemade lemonades, plus ribs, steak and a divine Ruben sandwich.

The Burger Brothers

Veterans of the burger revolution

The Burger Brothers' first place was a Harry Potter-like room under the stairs near Mayakovskaya, their second location is a spacious cafe on Red October Island, testament to their growing popularity. Don't miss their trademark cowberry burger.
