Best atmosphere. But the burgers?
Stuttgart is changing. At least, it’s starting to change. There are new shops, malls, restaurants popping up here and there while a department store and some other shops are either moving or closing. Change is good thing, I think, and for someone who has been answering “well, it depends,” whenever anyone would ask me “so how do you like Stuttgart,” this is exciting.
Hans Im Glück is one of those new burger joints that opened near Tuebingerstrasse, right next to the very busy Italian place Perbacco. I believe it opened last year and now it already has more locations around the city. They look and feel exactly the same, with very impressive tree decor, funky music and good cocktails. The burgers, however, could be better.
The menu is impressive and they have a lot of different types of toppings, including a vegetarian menu. But the thing is that the base is exactly the same and they just add in the toppings and call it a different burger. The problem with this is that first of all, the base itself isn’t the best and second of all, the toppings are not that impressive. You order a gorgonzola burger and you get a burger with a small, round helping of gorgonzola sauce. You order the BBQ burger and you get a hint of barbeque sauce with a sprinkle of fried onion chips.
So as long you pick your favorite toppings, you’ll have a not-so-bad burger but to be honest, something you can actually make yourself at home. The price tag isn’t that cheap either, which starts around 7 euros for a burger.
But there’s a but too. The cocktails are good, the atmosphere is very nice, the music not so loud but not so quiet, a good place for a date, families and or with friends. They also have four different types of dressings and sauces for the salad and fries, which is a big improvement from only ketchup and mayo.
