Hungry, fatigued, and soaked, I came into Bistro Burgers on a raining day not only expecting to fill the void in my tummy, but also to escape the gloominess of the rain with a nice brighten-me-up meal. High expectation that Bistro Burger has both managed to fulfil.
Located on the intersection of Fumin Road and Changle Road, Bistro Burgers is at the center of it all, attracting both foreigners and locals alike at its doors. I’ve heard that they served mean burgers, but what really drew my eye was their proclaimed rating on dianping for having the best smoothie shakes in Shanghai. Critical at first, I knew that I had to try for myself to confirm.
The store front is welcoming enough with both outside patio seating and cosy inside seating surrounded by brick walls. The service here was great, as the servers were very friendly in greeting us and helpful towards answering our questions. I ordered the classic Bistro burger, that came with either sides of fries or salad, and the Monkey Business milkshake, which was made up of fresh bananas, peanut butter, and vanilla ice cream. The burger both looked and tasted pretty darn good, with its tender beef patty, fresh veggies, and glazed buns. The milkshake, in the end, lived up to its name, leaving me craving for more. At first, I wasn’t too sure if adding peanut butter to milkshakes were a good idea, but they’ve really made it work with the peanut butter adding to the richness of the shake and perfectly balancing the otherwise overly sugary taste of the vanilla ice cream. Got to really watch out for those carbs though when ordering this shake, but nothing a trip to the gym can’t fix.
Meal came out to be 130rmb/person.
