To counter the feeling of post-lockdown gloom, John Prigogine and Xavier Chen (Old Boy, Lil Boy) pulled out the big guns, exploding onto the scene with Rambo, the first 100% muscle smash burger spot in the capital. At their Châtelain base camp, you’ll find nothing but very pure (concrete, wood, aluminum) and very good things, in three variations: a classic Black Angus patty smashed on the griddle (for a thin, tender and caramelized steak, all in one) and placed in a light, buttery, grilled potato bun with ketchup, sweet mustard, gherkins, raw white onion and bright orange American cheese; or the Special, pimped out with a secret sauce and crunchy lettuce; or the Beyond Meat patty for veg-lovers. All made to perfection and to be devoured without dropping your jaw or dirtying your tee-shirt. Any sides? Fries, Mickey D’s style (aka not homemade), extra crispy nuggets and make-your-own sundaes. Beefy backups can also be found in the Saint-Boniface district and in Waterloo. // Heloise Bartsoen

FEELING THIRSTY? A standard drinks menu somewhat lacking in excitement: Cristal beer (€3), Delta IPA from the Brussels Beer Project (€4.5) and ginger ale (€5).
PRICE: Burgers €12, nuggets €5, fries €3.50, ice cream €4, burger + fries + soft drink menu €17.
