fatburger competition!!!

breaking news

Hi guys,

I’ve got some exciting news…The lovely people at Fatburger have given me a meal for two to give away! I know… Yay!! 🙂

I would love to give you all the prize, but as I only have one I had a think about how I would choose. See who sucks up to me the most… Ask you all to cook me a meal and judge the best chef… Take bribes generally… All these ideas ran through my head, but I thought no I must be fair and it should be related to burgers.

So here it is… In order to be in for a chance to win the meal for two (if you’re generous you could treat someone, if you’re greedy you could just have two yourself!) you need to:

1. Follow this blog so I know who you are! How to do this – scroll right to the bottom of the page and enter your email address in the ‘Follow blog via email’ field. You will then receive an email with a link to confirm your subscription. If you’re on WordPress it’s even easier, just click the ‘Follow’ button at the top of the page and it’ll automatically know who you are 🙂

2. The fun bit… At the bottom of this post you should see a ‘Leave a reply’ box, please write your recipe for the ultimate burger in here! How would you cook the burger, would you add anything to the patty, toppings, sauce, bun… The whole lot!

If you don’t see the reply box, click on the ‘X Comments’ option in italics at the bottom of the post after all the tags.

3. There is no 3. That’s it!

I’m sure you’ve guessed it by now, but the best burger wins! Get in early in case someone steals your idea. Get following, writing and sharing! Competition ends on Sunday 28th June (exactly two weeks from now) and I will pick the winner shortly after.

Looking forward to hearing your ideas!

Fatburger’s coming to the UK and it’s HALAL!

breaking news

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!
