Zagreb Burger Festival

September 8, 2019 – Burger lovers, rejoice! Croatia’s favorite street food festival is coming back to Croatia’s capital this month – and after last season’s 170,000 visitors, we can only expect the best from the next Zagreb Burger Festival.

Namely, Jutarnji List reports that the Zagreb Burger Festival powered by TABASCO® opens its doors at Strossmayer Square for the fourth time, from September 12 to 22, to the delight of many foodies and followers of the increasingly popular burger fad. 


Visitors to the festival will have the chance to treat their taste buds to a bevy of burgers, discover what’s new in the Croatian gastronomic scene, and indulge in the impossible combinations turned delightful delicacies. 

Twenty excellent burger masters from Zagreb, Ljubljana, Osijek and Rijeka will show their creativity and skill. The TABASCO® Burger Bar will run under the baton of renowned chef Mate Jankovic, The Garden Bar&Kitchen, Good Food, Lars&Sven, Rougemarin, Raclette Burgers&Fries, Bistro Grill Deno, Burger bar, Maredo Grill, El Toro, Submarine Burger, Kascheta, BarBaQ, Reshetka by Đurina Hiža, Barcode Mitra, Brewbites, Torpedo burger, American bar Dollar, Špiro and Bread Club

The plant-based popular BEYOND burgers, which many world-class chefs are grilling thanks to the hype, will premiere at the Zagreb Burger Festival, and visitors will also be able to taste colorful creations from unusual vegetable and protein pairings to slightly “alcoholic” burgers and ones that make you sweat. But that’s not all – the burgers on show will also be accompanied by juicy steaks enriched with Kikkoman soy sauces, which are made by natural fermentation according to the traditional Japanese recipe.

The ‘b’ theme continues at the Burger festival with a craft cocktail bar and craft beers. Namely, the Garden Brewery, G3 Spirits Whiskey bar, and other craft beers will be on offer, while cocktail lovers will find it hard to leave the Cocktail Bar Rakijarnica & Mangosta or Jamnica Bar & Marina Nekić. The wine-os in the group won’t be forgotten about either thanks to Jerusalem Ormož wines. Those who enjoy a side of sweetness with their salty kick can enjoy Le Kolač and Robert Hromalić, who can hardly wait to present their sumptuous pastries at the festival for the first time. 

An excellent music program and a playroom for the smallest attendees can also be expected. 

Food competitions, craft beer brews, specialty burgers, imaginative cocktails, desserts and children’s activities – we think that’s enough to visit the Zagreb Burger Festival, right?
