They started as a food truck and it didn’t take long before Gnarly Burger
became something of a legend. Now they’ve got four outlets around Stockholm and are growing. Why is Gnarly so beloved in a city that knows its burgers? The beef is freshly ground each morning, the vibe is edgy Americana, and the staff absolutely amazing. Oh, and the burgers are obviously killer.

Founded in 2014, Phil’s Burger
has a very simple concept: make burgers from scratch with fresh ingredients and zero additives. There are 100% Black Angus burgers, as well as vegetarian
and gluten-free options. They also have great milkshakes and they bake their own buns every morning. With six outlets in the Stockholm area, and more on the way, it’s obvious that Phil is doing something right.
