Hamburgers are the ultimate American comfort food, and while Taipei went through a long dry spell, tasty burger joints are popping up all over the city. Whether you're a hamburger traditionalist or more of a risk taker, you'll find nearly any type of hamburger you could dream up at one of Taipei's top ten hamburger restaurants.
A favorite with Taipei's expat community, the California Grill comes in at the top of the list for it's big burgers and very Western-like atmosphere. Vegetarians will be equally pleased with the tofu burger perfected at California Grill.
The runner up, Bravo Burger, was rated by the Matador Network as one of the 50 best burger joints on the planet, a rather hefty honor. The extensive menu and big, juicy patties don't disappoint.
If you're in a hurry for your burger fix and don't want to sit down, you have Japan to thank for MOS Burger, an interesting Asian fusion take on the American fast food burger. Their signature sandwich comes complete with a bun made from rice.
