A Bite of Serbia, A Burst of South African Success

The Balkan Burger Story

In the heart of Johannesburg in 2011, fate (and a touch of empty stomachs) played its hand. A missed connection with a friend sparked a crazy idea: to bring the vibrant flavours of the Balkans to South Africa in the form of mouthwatering, gourmet burgers. This is the story of Balkan Burger, a testament to family, passion, and the relentless pursuit of deliciousness.

    Family Recipe, Secret Weapon

    The secret sauce behind Balkan Burger? Family! With a sister's eye for creativity and a brother's business savvy, they knew they had something special. Mom's legendary Serbian recipes provided the foundation for their menu, while Dad's connections secured the freshest ingredients.

Balkan Burger is absolutely mind blowingly amazing. The sourdough bread is light and fluffy, the patty is clearly freshly made and very tasty and the sauces and cheese just takes this burger to the next level of burgerness. This is truly a special burger that delivers extreme taste with every byte. Thank you Bulkan burger!
