“Great tasting burger in a throw-back market setting”

My Finnish friend recommended this place for burgers as a new business for a well-established meat purveyor in Helsinki who was relocated from the enclosed market near the main waterfront due to renovations of the entire marketplace. I sat at along a counter looking directly upon the grill area, so I saw this whole thing assembled. I saw freshly ground beef formed into generous patties, grilled, topped with cheese (something white and flavorful) and bacon, then added to a toasted brioche bun with Russian dressing, cole slaw, and pickles. It's one of the best burgers I've had in a while, and I live in a very crowded NYC burger scene. Even the pickles were delicious! I was only sorry that their French fries were sold out (but to be fair, it was 3:00 pm). Hope to repeat a visit here the next time I return:

If In N’ Out had a gourmet burger, the Rosburger would be it. It’s got the thousand island dressing, soft bacon, coleslaw. The meat was nothing special, although they charcoal their burgers. I guess because they fresh ground their own beef I was expecting something different.

I ate mine with my hands and had a goopy glorious mess. Locals were more refined and ate with fork and knife.

Fries are not included with the burger, so it's a bit expensive (like the rest of Helsinki). Also, the grill closes before the closing time of the market. The market closed at 6, I was there at 5:40 pm, but the grill was closed.

Loved the burger served at the Roslund meatshop , the meat was excellent with a divine coleslaw salad inside the burger making it extra delich! The bun was fresh and overall the meal was very tasty. The service was cordial, coud be a tad friendlier but the food makes up for it. Im ready to go back for some more !

The butcher shop Roslund at the old Hietalahti market hall offers one the best burgers in town. Nothing fancy but good, fresh, and most importantly tasty ingredients: a bun, ground beef (juuuust slightly pink inside, bacon, cheese (NO thin McDonald's-like industrial cheddar!), coleslaw and slice of pickeld cucumber.

Side order of choice: salad or french fries (good ones too!)

The burger costs 12,50e but is well worth every cent.

You order and pay at the counter, then you receive a number. Once your burger is ready they shout out you number and you get your dish from the counter. So therefore it might be good to tell them to shout yours in English if you're not a native :-)

Together with their butcher shop Roslund has a grill where they serve suberb burgers along with changing menu of sandwiches. Rosburger is easily the best burger in Helsinki, and overall one of the best I've ever had.

Nothing extra, just handful of delicious ground beef, cheese, bacon, coleslaw and a slice of a pickle between a bun. Do not miss this when around Hietaniemi market.
