A few steps from Castel Sant’Angelo – the tomb of Emperor Adriano, but also a place where Professor Langdon in Angels and Demons (Ron Howard) succeeded in foiling the attempt on the Pope – there is a place of good food and tranquility that you wouldn’t expect in an area where certainly you cannot see the sea!
The Fisherman Burger is a food harbour where the center is the fish. And it’s easy to notice it starting from the architecture, reminiscent of the wooden boats and all the marine style, but above all by the Fish Counter, where is exposed all the freshness of the food that will enjoy (there is also a tub with lobsters and crustaceans).
What is The Fisherman Burger
It would be really reductive to define it simply a restaurant: the impression that the executive chef Giuseppe Fiusco gave his kitchen undermines many clichés about the (typical) preparations of seafood and creates a varied, diverse and inviting offer. What you will notice is not only quality, but also the creativity.
What can you eat at The Fisherman Burger
The Fisherman Burger menu ranges through the classic Mediterranean cuisine, but adds a “burger touch” that creates curious and international dishes.
I could taste the “flavours of home” with Raw Oysters and Prawns (yes, in the South of Italy raw seafood existed before the sushi mania!), The “Salentine” Mussels and Fresh Roast Octopus with chips as contour. But also I found a thousand of different cultures of the world tasting Fish & Chips served with American sweet potatoes, Lobster Roll with ccaramelised onions and Salmon Wrap with mango.
There are also fruits and desserts, that include a wonderful “Decomposed” Tiramisu: you can put the coffee (from the moka) directly on the biscuit and dipped it into the mascarpone cream. Brilliant!
