‘La Maison du French burger’ which means ‘The House of the French Burger’ has finally made its way to Dubai. Big Fernand, the French gourmet “fast-good” burger chain, opened its very first workshop in Outlet Village, Dubai today, the 15th of December 2016. We were there to witness the launch which was a huge success, with customers experiencing the exquisite taste of their menu and a fun French ambiance.
Their menu is as small as a business card and they were able to fit everything in it. There’s not a lot on it though, just the 7 signature hamburgés competing with one another to win you over, the fries and the drinks. And if not them, there are 3,840 possible combinations of burgers and ingredients that await you.
Although this was just the opening and we were not here to properly review, we were able to get a taste of their famous hamburges and I think that is all that you need to know. Their burgers were incredibly tasty and you can really see that they are fresh and of high quality.
The French hamburgés workshop is now open for all who want to experience the true taste of gourmet burgers, and their french fries called ‘Fernandines’ which are made in house. I’m sure not everyone will agree with me but I really like their version of the fries because it’s not crunchy and instead they are more on the soft side.
Sitting inside the restaurant, one can’t help but be mesmerized by the simple wooden décor, cheese display, fun expressions and everything French that is sure to delight senses, beyond taste buds. Every detail is thought out to take one on a journey through the streets of France, filled with the smell of freshly baked bread, high-spirited laughs and of course hamburgés.
Conceived and concocted on a small Parisian street, to revisit the eternally favorite hamburgés, Big Fernand was born on the 18th of January 2012. It now has more than 25 workshops to its name in France, London, Hong Kong, and now the latest branch at the Outlet Village in Dubai. With a highly efficient staff and a process in place, Big Fernand boasts exceptional speed with a customer being served every 40 seconds. They were pretty fast but you should go and try it to believe it.
