It all began with my colleague explaining to me the perfect date in Amsterdam: First you have a burger at Lombardos, then you go and treat yourself to a nice gelato from Fior di Gelato and finish it off with the best espresso they also serve.

Today we finally made it to Lombardos. It has been on our wish list for quite some time now, but yes today was our lucky day.

Since the BF and I are very much obsessed with finding the best burger, Lombardos claiming to have the #1 burger in Amsterdam was a must go. We arrived at the shop and were a little surprised to see that it was actually a take out place rather than a cozy little restaurant I had pictured in my head. We were lucky that two people who were sitting at the bar said they were leaving so we decided to wait. Faith was on our side <<JEAH>>. While waiting we studied their menu and decided we both would take a burger: the Wagyu burger and the Hollandse Mrij burger.

The nice thing about this place is that you get to see the guy prepare your food and let you drool while waiting to get your hands on it. By the time the food got on our plate we were super exited to satisfy our taste buds.

We liked it..oke no for real we loved it. The quality of the products used definitely makes you feel less guilty your eating a burger. Staff is super friendly. Be sure to have one of their freshly squeezed juices. The mini got herself some nice Turkish bread with avocado. She loved it too.

One little note of feedback: Sauce bottles at the bar would be a mayor +.
