New Eats: Bistro Burger and Balthazar


Perfect… just perfect. Another late-night-eats joint at the Fumin Lu and Changle Lu corner, and in the form of a gourmet-styled burger.

Restaurateur Eduardo Vargas recently opened Bistro Burger, a smallish venue with sleek, casual décor that's open into the wee hours of the night until 4AM. Serving casual American fare,  their food is reliable in quality, but probably not too light on calories.

There’s 10 different burgers to try here. The original, aptly named “The Classic”, features a scrumptious 8 oz, 100% Angus beef hamburger, while other creative takes include the “My Big Fat Greco Style Gyros Burger”, which serves up a generous lamb patty in a pita. The comforts of Bistro Burger’s apple pie, chili cheese waffle fries, fried pickles, and spiked chocolate milkshake are also bound to be restaurant favourites. Prices aren't bad either, with burgers ranging from RMB 45 to 65.

And the Vargas empire also has another new addition: Balthazar, a modern French brasserie located in the Taikang Lu area. Expect fresh imported cold-water oysters, a selection of patés and terrines, as well as comfort foods including shepherd’s pie, mac & cheese and coq au vin. As a promotion for its soft opening, Balthazar has a 2-for-1 special on draft beers and a 30% discount on food until the end of the month.
