Festín, the hamburger restaurant with the second best hamburger in Spain

Festín- the home of the second best hamburger in Spain

If pizza is a field of delicacy and purism, the hamburger is the terrain of experimentation and creativity. This is what makes competitions like the 4th Spanish Burger Championship so exciting and fun, as they point out the best burgers in the country.

This year, the championship has pitted creations from all over the country against each other and has set its sights on Barcelona, awarding it the silver medal with the second best hamburger in Spain. But this was not the only award for the region, as several of these snacks from Barcelona and Catalonia were also recognized.

Festín’s burger is a burger that heals the soul.

Festín was already famous for his talent for making sandwiches. Now, they also stand out in the world of hamburgers. This year they took second place with their creation “La Duquesa”.

This is a robust burger that heals your soul.
