You heard it here first guys (well I hope so anyway), Fatburger is opening its first branch in the UK in Camden and it will be 100% HALAL. I know why I will be obese by the end of the year!
So I was going to do my usual rhyming thing, something like ‘I could murder a Fatburger’ (actually that’s pretty good, I’m going to keep that one in my back pocket!). But I didn’t, because this story is so big that I had to get to the point…
It is currently scheduled to open in June this year, so not too long to wait, and will be situated on Jamestown Road, where Yo Sushi used to be right next to Byron. The burger competition is hotting up! Gone will be the days when we gaze defeated and salivating at everyone eating those delicious looking Five Guys burgers… Such a momentous day for us halals!
For those that don’t know (shame on you), Fatburger is a US burger chain much like Five Guys in that it is fast food, but the burgers are made fresh from lean beef (not like the cheap sloppy stuff you get at your local kebab shop, no offence to kebab shop owners). It was supposedly started in 1952 by a woman (woop woop!) and it now operates in 29, soon to be 30 countries around the world.
It has been made famous by American Hip Hop and RnB artists opening up their own branches, like Mr West, Pharrell, Montell Jordan and Queen Latifah… Magic Johnson also got in on the action.
Keep checking back here for the inside scoop and updates on what’s going on. Also I’ll hopefully have some delicious Fatburger prizes for you lovely people… I’ll see what I can rustle up! In the meantime… I wish you lovely juicy Fatburger eating dreams 🙂
Hope you guys are as excited as I am!
