Twice as Tasty
Burgers and Pulp Fiction near Harvard
Nice place. Historic. Eclectic. Only way to make it better is to have a little bit of Fenway-style
raucousness injected into it.
Best-case scenario: Fenway Park II.
Next best: this.
Behold: your first look at Tasty Burger Harvard Square
, the new two-floor encampment of Kahuna
and microbrew glory, tentatively opening this weekend.
Housed in a former 7-Eleven, this has the same general vibe of the original Tasty Burger. That is, a relaxed
dining cave with billiards and wall paintings in homage to Pulp Fiction
(in this case, Uma Thurman
eating a burger at Jack Rabbit Slim’s).
If you want, it could be a great casual date spot. Meet up with that linguistics grad student for a quick
round of nine-ball, then grab a mahogany banquette or a seat at the bar downstairs to graze from the 40
microbrews and canned beers (Cisco, Smuttynose).
But don’t forget about those burgers. In addition to the aforementioned Kahuna option, you’ll want to
try the spicy jalapeño burger
(jalapeños... bold move), along with some Nitro Nuggets
(their version of buffalo chicken
Oh, and should you be out late-night, they serve food till 4am.
The best time of day for cheeseburgers.
