THE BEYOND BURGER
A REVOLUTIONARY, 100% VEGAN, PLANT-BASED BURGER THAT LOOKS AND SATISFIES LIKE BEEF
What tastes like beef, looks & feels like beef, but is absolutely not beef? Our new, revolutionary and sustainable plant-based Beyond burger! In fact, it’s so meaty, you have to taste it to believe it. In our eternal quest for the Holy Grail of burgers, we ended up in California where we found this juicy, savory meatless burger. Wait a minute, savory AND meatless? Yep... Think about it: meat consists of protein, fat, minerals and water. Exactly the same building blocks you find in the plant kingdom. So, creating meat from plants makes perfect sense. It’s even approved and supported by respected environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio.
The planet will thank you!
COLLAB ELLIS GOURMET BURGER X BRANDT & LEVIE
Jiri, Geert and Samuel are the three sausage kings behind the Brandt & Levie brand, a young Dutch brand that stimulates people to eat less, but better meat. How it all started? With friendship and a share passion for premium pork. They went to Italy to learn how to make sausages and charcuterie from famous Italian butchers. They choose the nose-to-tail approach and use meat of local free range pigs who have been pampered. Their products are handmade and slowly matured in their own sausage factory in Amsterdam.
The Piggy Porchetta is so good you just have to try it. A combination of premium pork, fennel seeds and heavenly porchetta for an intoxicating taste. The smoked scamorza, a creamy Italian cheese, give it a subtle, smoky touch with a sweet note. The paprika ketchup is the perfect finishing touch, giving it some extra oomph.
COLLAB ELLIS GOURMET BURGER X GUILLAUME SANCHEZ
Guillaume Sanchez is the new kid on the block in French gastronomy. A trained pastry chef, he became one of the most innovative chefs of his generation. After opening Nomos, he has now opened Neso, a new vibrant culinary hotspot in Paris with loud music and loads of fun. He cooks with his head and his heart and his masterworks seduce even the most demanding foodies.
The rebel chef created a gourmet beef burger. He added pickled carrots, caramelised onions, peas and sweet and sour carrot ketchup that will blow you away. This is the French kitchen 2.0: a delicious masterpiece with so much taste your taste buds won’t know what’s happening.
NEW DELI(CIOUS) PASTRAMI
Did you know that Jewish migrants brought pastrami from Romania to New York in the 19th century? For Ellis, in his quest for the perfect burger, this was reason enough to go there for lunch. So, we ended up in the world-famous Katz’s Deli where Pastrami appears on the menu with a capital P for perfect.
We were enthralled, and appointed Hendrik Dierendonck to create an Ellis version. Exactly the same one that you can now enjoy.
A pastrami burger, with the famous ‘Dierendonck’ touch: red, west-Flemish beef pastrami, 100% home-made, gently salted and smoked, rubbed with rosemary, dill and fresh garlic… Add some iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, onion and pickles sauce and you have the perfect summer burger!
Yes, a star is born! One with brown shrimp, a patty of scampi croquette and tomato salsa. And all of that in a delicious brioche bun. Yummy! But first, try to peel that jumbo shrimp without catapulting it at your neighbors. Come on, show us your skills!
NEW VEGAN BURGER!
Our Beet the Roots burger will have you switch from meat to veg in a snap! This shiny beauty on a crispy bun brings a vibrant purple to your plate. It is made with a beet patty, beetroot sprouts, the prettiest of all onions, wickedly good watercress and lettuce - covered in a creamy sauce. Responsibly delicious!
A new recipe, the old-fashioned way! Star butcher Dierendonck went in search of the ultimate burger, with a touch of nostalgia that reminds him of his granny's juicy Sirloin steak. Meet the New Meatlover: 190 grams of minced beef, pulled beef and crumble of beef. There's no such thing as perfection... but this comes incredibly and irresistibly close! (or: but this is about as close as we can get!)
Spring is ... a Mediterranean dish on your plate!
Our Great Greek is an ode tot he sun. A juicy piece of lamb with ratatouille of eggplant, fresh cucumber and a sprinkle of creamy feta cheese. You just have to imagine the sirtaki and ouzo for yourself!
The Bollywood Delight
Look who's back in town! This aromatic chicken burger takes you away for an exciting journey to India. A crispy bun, marinated chicken, yogurt-mintsauce and a spicy mangochutney. Bollywood boldness!

CRISPY INDIAN HALIBUT
Our season burger brings tribute to the halibut, the giant of the sea. With his subtle and fresh taste he fits perfectly with marinated vegetables - at its Indonesian: atjar tjampoer. Yet another aromatic apple-curry sauce and crispy iceberg lettuce and you have a delicious fishy pleasure
With the holidays in sight, we have assembled a burger that is delightfully decadent. Rossini lifts beef to a higher level with foie gras, truffle sauce, red onion marmalade and crispy rocket- a treat for your taste buds. Test it before it's too late!

We besprenkelen het lamsvlees met een smaakmaker in New Yorkse stijl met komkommer en citroentijm.

TRY OUR NEWEST SEASON BURGER
The Texel sheep is very muscular. The result: lean, firm meat of the highest quality!
The grilled pepper and tapenade that go with it do full justice to the meat.
What makes this burger so irresistible? The Torta de Oveja: an artisanal cheese made from raw sheep's milk - so smooth it melts in the mouth.
The cheese's characteristic flavour take the lamb meat to a higher level, without dominating it - a justified Gold Medal winner at the World Cheese Awards 2014

Even better: stop your stomach from growling with a delicious burger - the best snack in times of exam stress.
