The Cucina Granda Burger is simply delicious in the grand scheme of things. All it takes is a nice charred crust on a juicy beef patty with a slightly pink inside, cheese, a slice or two of Spanish onions, green leaf lettuce, a bit of honey mustard sauce and a gloriously soft wholemeal bun. This perfect combination is a delight for all burger lovers.
