Are you hungry and would you like to get acquainted with real Dutch fries, delicious burgers or heavenly hot dogs? Look no further! Restaurant Burgerfabriek is were you have to go. Fresh, fast, flavourful food, pimped with a modern twist.
The Burgerfabriek (Burger Factory) was founded in April 2015 in De Wallen and is located on Amsterdam’s oldest street. Go here if you want to taste some real Dutch food like Old Amsterdam cheese on a delicious burger together with some thick Dutch fries. Yummy!
The first time we visited the Burgerfabriek was this summer and we were really amazed by the quality of the burgers. We haven’t had burgers before in Red Light District that tasted so good as the burgers of restaurant Burgerfabriek. Well done, guys!
Did you know that restaurant BurgerFabriek used to be a cannabis shop? It was Sheeba which was located here. It was forced by the local government to close its doors, because of the so called Project 1012. Which ment that some coffeeshops located in the entrance of Amsterdam, are not allowed to sell cannabis anymore.
We think it’s shame that these specific coffeeshops aren’t allowed to sell weed any more, but sometimes it leads to something really good. Like Restaurant BurgerFabriek! The former director of coffeeshop Sheeba heard about Amsterdam’s project 1012 and decided to open a new restaurant in the Red Light District. He was first thinking to open a tapas bar, but then later he changed his mind and founded restaurant Burgerfabriek.
Tip from one of our local guides: Try a burger with Old Amsterdam cheese. It’s definitely one of the best Dutch cheeses.
These international burgers are served with big Dutch fries or baked potato.
You can also make your own hotdog here. Choose between 11 different toppings, like:
The BurgerFabriek is the only place in the Red Light District, where you can have a table with your own beer tap. They have 4 tables inside which offers these personal beers taps: There is one big round table in front, it can take 8-9 persons. There also two big bar tables in the back, also for 8-9 persons.
Besides that the BurgerFabriek also has another table which allows 5 persons. These tables with beer taps are quite convenient, especially when you’re in Amsterdam with your mates.
The table in the front of the restaurant is definitely best because you’ll have a great view on the Warmoesstraat. In the summer time you can sit outside or just go inside and pick the big round table next to the window with its own beer tap. Great for people watching!
Opening hours have changed during the corona-crisis. Please visit their website (listed below) and check the current opening hours.
Making a reservation at restaurant BurgerFabriek is not really necessary as they have plenty of space inside. Just walk inside and ask for a table!
