A true heaven for meat lovers, Burnout make their hamburgers carefully selecting different cuts of fresh beef (they never use frozen beef). They buy their meat in a totally unprocessed state, and then they clean it, cut it, and grind it twice a day in order to guarantee not only their absolute freshness but also that the hamburgers contain absolutely nothing that should not be in them. Just pure unadulterated 100% fresh beef.
But it’s not only the meat that they focus on. They pay attention to each and everyone of the ingredients they use, steering clear of anything artificial. #trueburgers

Authentic Neapolitan pizza. You may have eaten an inordinate number of pizzas in your life, but you’re likely not to have tried the original one. The team at Grosso Napoletano want to share with you Naples’ most sought-after secret: La Verace Pizza Napolitana.
All their Neapolitan pizzas are baked for 60 to 90 seconds at 500º Celsius, in a traditional oven handmade in Naples by the fourth generation of a family of craftsmen. The dough is made with italian hard flower, then it’s left to rest for 48 hours so that it gets a second fermentation, thereby resulting in a thin, soft, and elastic base, with thick spongy border and delicious texture. The authentic Neapolitan pizza is made with top quality Italy-imported ingredients, such as San Marzano tomatoes and Campana DOP Mozzarella, making this pizza a culinary work of art.
To top it all off, their pizzaiolos come directly from Naples to ensure that the pizza-making tradition is painstakingly followed.
