Nowadays, there are hundreds of burger franchises around the world and the competition is tight. It’s all about the taste and branding. Owners have to figure out a way to make their product unique from the rest of the herd, and Fatburger tries to do just that.
Fatburger boasts of being voted as the best burger in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and other parts of the US. It also raves about how “fat” their burgers are since you can stack up to three patties of burgers in one sandwich! Choose from the Single, Double and Triple patty meals, plus add-ons of either chilli, bacon, cheese and eggs. You can try putting all of those together but I doubt that it should still be called a “fatburger” (it should be called an “obese burger” if that were the case).
Fatburger claims to use 100% lean, ground beef on their patties, and I believe them. But to be honest, it needs a tad bit more salt (or flavor). I ordered the single-patty burger since I am a beginner in all of this, and I was honestly underwhelmed. The hype around the name “Fatburger” may have gotten the best of me, and what me and my tastebuds discovered was a close-to-bland tasting burger meal with a whooping price of 23SR a piece. Tell me there is a missing ingredient that’s probably not allowed in KSA just so I can justify why this burger isn’t so special? I could hardly believe that this was voted as the “Best Burger in LA” because I can easily name one or two more brands that can definitely trump theirs on flavor alone.
Being the new kid on the block of the Kingdom Mall’s Food Court (they opened only last April 28), I also tried a lot of their other items. I felt that they were able to redeem themselves to me in the form of their homemade Onion Rings, which were unique in taste and quality compared to other fast food chains. There’s also the Chilli Cheese Fat/Skinny Fries, which is a hefty snack, though the chilli on top is more Arabic-spiced than Mexican-spiced. For value for your money, you can also try their Crispy Chicken Sandwich, the Chilli Cheesedog and their Ice Cream Milkshakes. Other than that, their burgers weren’t too impressive.Fatburger,
