theLab – Unconventional Burger Experience
Via Pasquale Sottocorno, 5/A (Porta Venezia / Risorgimento)
Burgers that’ll make your mouth water, right in the heart of Milan’s stylish Risorgimento district – that’s what you’ll find at The Lab!
This cozy little eatery is a true gem, dishing up an impressive selection of burgers that range from classic beef patties to creative vegetarian and fish options.
The Lab takes pride in using genuine, quality Italian ingredients to top their burgers, like fassona (piedmontese beef), taleggio cheese, guanciale, and provolone. The patties are soft, juicy, and perfectly sealed, so you won’t have to worry about that pesky sogginess ruining your burger.
And, the burgers come with a side of your choice – from baked or fried potatoes to corn on the cob – to complete your meal. If you’re a fan of good beer, you’re in luck, because The Lab has a wide selection of craft beers that pair perfectly with their burgers.
The Lab may be small in size, but it’s big on ambiance, with a cozy and well-decorated interior and an outdoor seating area for when the weather’s nice.
To make sure you get a spot, be sure to book in advance.
Via Giuseppe Ripamonti, 19 (Porta Romana)
If you’re tired of the same old generic fast food, Cow Burger – small family-owned burger joint located just a stone’s throw away from Porta Romana – is here to save the day.
These buns pack a punch of flavor and provide the perfect foundation for a variety of burgers that cater to every taste. Whether you’re in the mood for a classic cheeseburger or something a bit more adventurous, Cow Burger has got you covered.
I’m personally a fan of the Italy Burger, with its irresistible combination of tomato, broccoli rabe, buffalo mozzarella, onion, and green pepper sauce. But, if you’re feeling creative, you can always build your own burger from a generous selection of ingredients. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
Cow Burger also offers fair prices, with an average cost of 10-15 euros per person, making it easy on your wallet.

Piazza Ventiquattro Maggio, 1/8 (Navigli)
Sweetburger is the newest sensation to hit the fast food scene in Milan’s Navigli area, and it’s quickly becoming known for serving up some of the best burgers in town.
The highlight of this place, however, is not just the juicy burgers but the bread they’re served on – fluffy, sweet rolls in a distinctive square shape that sets them apart from the average round bun.
Burgers here are accompanied by crispy fries, cooked to perfection and served piping hot. If you’re a fan of sweet potato fries, you’re in for a treat – Sweetburger’s offering is especially noteworthy.
Don’t expect to find a spacious dining area at Sweetburger, but the small space has been furnished in a unique way, with tiled surfaces and neon signs giving it a cool and quirky vibe.
Despite being a popular spot, the service is fast and efficient, even when the joint is busy.

Without a doubt, al Mercato is a restaurant that offers a steakhouse-inspired dining experience that is worth exploring.
Keep in mind, though, that this restaurant is slightly pricier than the others listed in the article. However, the extra cost is well worth it for the amazing meat-focused menu.
The menu is divided into two main sections: steaks and burgers. You can customize them in different ways, and they also have a section dedicated to seasonal vegetables and grilled sides.
Their burgers are particularly exceptional, thanks to their homemade bread, topped with seeds that add a unique crunch to each bite.
The burger toppings are also standout, with options like homemade pickled onions, crunchy bacon, gorgonzola, and jalapeno jam to name a few.
And don’t forget the sides – the spicy french fries and truffle fries are a true highlight!
With an ambiance that perfectly complements the menu, al Mercato offers an excellent option for meat lovers.
Via Vincenzo Monti, 56 (Sempione / Triennale)
If you’re wandering around the stunning Sempione park or checking out the art exhibitions at the Triennale museum and suddenly have a hankering for a burger, make sure to head to Fatto Bene.
With a wide variety of options, including some rather original solutions, there is something for everyone.
Their burger menu is bursting with variety, featuring not only classic beef patties but also chicken, pork, and even fish options.
The ingredient pairings are also very interesting and creative. Take, for example, the “Yellow head” burger, with a sunny side up egg, grilled eggplant, crispy bacon, and a dollop of mayo – it’s a unique and delicious combination.
Even vegetarians have plenty of options to choose from; whether it’s a vegetable burger or potato rosti topped with the freshest ingredients, you will be satisfied no matter your preferences.
Plus, the burgers come with your choice of baked potatoes or fries, both of which are light, crispy and tasty.
And finally, don’t sleep on the appetizers – they’re also fantastic, with options that are particularly unusual (think: pulled pork nuggets, or crispy taleggio) compared to other burger joints.
