I interrupt our travel series for something important: The Pink Tarha blog lacks food posts and so we're bringing you one today. :P
I bet you already know Fatburger. Their stand-alone restaurant in Takhasussi Street was the first one we've seen and we remembered that day when we all excitedly went there, craving for internationally-acclaimed burgers, only to be stupefied by an opening soon restaurant. Hahaha. Excited much kasi. Surprisingly, when it finally opened, it was only Shoegarfreeruby who had the opportunity to go and eat there. Eyecandy and I had to wait for the opening of their stall in the food court of Kingdom Mall, which actually took quite a while to open too, to have a taste of their infamous "biggest, juiciest" burgers.

|I'm all for simple burgers.|

We know you got quite hungry from the photos (don't deny it!). The burgers are really beautiful and enticing especially for the hungry. However, we just had one thing to say about Fatburger's burgers: nothing out of the ordinary. The patty is bland (I do not favor hamburgers that rely on condiments for taste). And the burger is expensive if you consider paying SR23 for a single patty burger with drinks and fries. I can already get 2 patties from a burger joint in the same food court, sometimes even at a cheaper price. As for the other items in our table... the spicy chicken sandwich was okay. As you can see, the chicken fillet was larger and longer than the bun and it was quite juicy too. The chili fries were loaded with toppings but we left half of it uneaten so I guess the leftover can speak for itself. As for the strawberry milkshake, it was thick and yummy and sweet. They said that the fat fries could whoop any fries' ass so maybe we'll try that next time.
Fatburger is not bad at all but it's not extraordinary too so what shall we do with it? Haha. Well, we will probably visit once in a while. But they should step it up! There's no scarcity of burgers in Riyadh but there are a few more burger joints opening soon! You bet The Pink Tarha ladies will be there to taste them for you. ;)
