Burgers, Gin and Cheesecake

It's no secret that the best places to eat in a new city are the ones away from the touristy area, but on our way away from the opera house, we couldn't help but be  enticed by my travel buddies three favourite things.

In a country where most people drink beer in the bars, it was nice to happen on a spot that specializes in gin cocktails, makes super mouthwateringly delicious burgers and tops it all off with a scrumptious slice of cheesecake. Oh, and top that off with another cocktail. You won't be able to resist it, so don't try to fool yourself into thinking that you're only going to have one. 

...said the butcher to the cow has only been open for a month, but judging by the full house on a Wednesday night and their DJ'ed weekends, I think it's going to develop into quite the new hot spot. 

It's a little expensive for a backpackers budget, but reasonable for nice resto standards. 4 cocktails, 2 burgers and 2 slices of cheesecake cost us 64€ and a walk back to the hostel to work off some  of those calories. So worth it.
