Went to the Vatican Museums with my husband and we stumbled onto this Amazing place for street food. Fresh cut French Fries and an amazing Mexican Burger. The place was clean, fast service and kitchen hygiene was accurate. Marco, the owner has been very kind to us. Will definitely come back again!

The guy operating this place is so nice and the menu he put together is just great. Also liked the concept. Some of the recipes are awesome, like the Elvis burger. Hence I hate to say what has to be said:

We sat there while we were waiting for our food and watched as it was prepared. And we were shocked. Basic kitchen principles of hygiene were totally ignored. First of all the rare meat patties were laid down on the same place he also cut the coleslaw and other veggies a few minutes later. You never ever use the same kitchen stuff for rare meat and other food, esp if this other food is eaten rare. Secondly, after forming the pattie for the Jucy Lucy burger with the cheese in between with his bare hands, no hands were washed. He just wiped his hands on his apron(!!!) and then processed other food. Eg for the veggie burger. In between he operated the cashier and instantly went back to processing food.

We weren't really impressed with the taste of the food as well. The juicy Lucy was too rare, the cheese in the middle was not melted a bit. I have had many burgers, but I could not taste any grilling flavor and the meat itself was boring. I felt sorry for the bread the way it looked like. For the price of the burgers I would have expected a very awesome piece of meat between two nice bread slices. We did not like the veggie burger (but hey we haven't found a lot of good veggie burgers yet). Last but not least the fries arrived after we had finished the burgers. They were very salty and a tick to well done.

Please improve the hygiene issue, seeing all that destroyed the burgers for us before we even tasted them.

If you want a break from Italian food, please do yourself a favor and visit this restaurant! Everything is made from scratch and it's delicious!
