It’s almost the same top tiers as last year. Disappointed but not surprised. Most of the restaurants here just sandwich patty and buns, no excitement, no innovation, no extra sauce. I would hope Ibadan would have new and better burger outlets by now. But still these ones have managed to be our favorites again.
Jazz by chrysalis
Bacon Cheese Burger: N1,800
I don’t know if the mellow jazz ambience makes the burger taste even better...or maybe it’s the sophistication, still this is one of the best burgers around here.
Foodies burger is far from any sophistication you can think of. Just a simple sandwich of patty, buns and vegetables.
Chicken Burger: N1,200
Not really a fancy place but they’ve survived this long based on relatively better food. They have a wide range of burgers and all seem to be very good (based on social media reviews). Settled for the chicken burger this time. Food was brought in good time; under 15 minutes. The burger came in shining, tasty with a well compact patty. Only thing I didn’t enjoy were the onions used, they gave the burger an extra odd taste. However, the burger gets a pat on the head. You don’t see too many good chicken burgers around here.
IITA IHOUSE RESTURANT
IHouse Bacon cheese burger: N1,400
Ihouse snack bar and resuturant is located inside IITA, a research institute dedicated to generating agricultural innovations. A very serene and neat environment. Security is pretty tight and you might not be able to get in but we got in. Their patty boasts of this Smokey flavor that just blends well with all the paste and vegetables
Beef Burger: N1,800
It’s no doubt that the Lebanese have the restaurant game on lock down in Nigeria, I don’t know what it is they do differently, but they seem to do it well. As usual, I don’t get that "customer is always right" vibe here. But this is focused on burger so I’d try and overlook everything else. Food was brought out in about 15 to 20 minutes, so not too long. The burger was a simple Beef Burger that was priced at N1,800. Looks well prepared and taste good too. The patty was nicely grilled with the feeling of that Smokey flavor. The bun was thick, but easy to chew into. I wish they didn’t have to put fries into the mix, makes the burger less compact...still a worthy burger.
