The thing is, I’m not really a huge burger fan. They’re okay, but I usually end up ordering veggie burgers of some sort. I realize that is rather odd, particularly for someone who is in no way vegetarian. I think I’ve actually discovered why: I prefer a thin, smoky hamburger to a big, juicy patty, and that goes against almost everyone else’s preferences, and therefore is almost impossible to find. Hans im Glück is no exception- they do a thick, juicy patty just like you, and everyone else in the world, wants. So that’s one of the reasons I recommend it (for you). Me, I default to the veggie burger. Every time. And you know what- they’re so delicious at Hans im Glück, that I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Hans im Glück is a very happening spot in Munich, hence it’s meteoric rise in popularity from one lonely outpost on Nymphenburger Strasse a couple of years ago to its current six branches in some of the most desirable neighborhoods in Munich. So, as is so often the case in Munich, make a reservation. Also, expect it to be a bit of a “scene” – it is as much a burger joint as it is a trendy hang-out spot for an after-work or pre-party cocktail. Sigh… I kind of wish it hadn’t become such a scene, but you know what, I’m definitely not the only person to appreciate delicious food, and I can’t begrudge Hans im Glück its well-deserved popularity!
