Fatburger… never again!

By | December 9, 2010

I have heard mixed reviews about Fatburger… and being a vegetarian i wasn’t looking forwards to trying it. But then my husband told me that they did have a veggie burger on the menu so i thought why not?

We order two meals: Mine a veggie burger with onion rings and water and his was a double burger with fries and a soft drink. The total was 7 KD + which is just too much for a couple of burgers…

The onion rings at the end of the meal. and the Veggie Burger was totally horrible! It looked and tasted like chicken! I took the burger to the counter and asked them more than once if they are sure that this is a veggie burger and they assured me it was. I looked up the veggie burger in the Fatburger website and it was Boca burger… a soy burger that looks like meat and i have had it before… this was not Boca Burger… this was not minced vegetables made into a patty… this was most likely a quorn burger and had i know that i wouldn’t have ordered it since quorn is disgusting and tastes exactly like chicken and if i wanted to have a burger that tasted like chicken i would have ordered my self a chicken burger… i was gagging with every bite :S

Verdict: So not worth the trip. Never going back again!

    Big huge tip, next time you want to try a new restaurant check out this site http://www.yalawain.com.
    People from kuwait review all the restaurants and critique the food, I think you can find any restaurant in Kuwait on that site.
    And true, everyone who critiqued fat burger said it was a failure.

      Actually though the website is great Fatburger got 75% likes!
      that is quite high… many people did like the place…

      Usually when there are many different opinions about a place i choose to try it o give my own opinion… i wouldn’t try it if 90% of people said it was bad though

    my review?

    the five of us went there dinner, it was ok, not great, just ok..

    two hours later, my stomach was hurting really bad, my friend threw up, my other friend had a severe case of diarrhea mind you…

    NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. My husband tried it out and he says the burger is not that good…I like johnny rocket’s streamliner and I agree with u, when it tastes too much like meat might as well eat the real deal lol

    • danderma says:

      Exactly there is a reason i do not eat chicken and meat and fish y3ni… why the hell do you say it’s a veggie burger when you intend to give me something that tastes like chicken? lo b3d boca burger ele soy that tastes like a beef burger ok … say it’s a Quorn burger and i wouldn’t have touched it!!!

    THANK YOU ! i thought so too! , i just dont understand all this fuss about it , i dont like the bun and i definitely dont like the meat , the whole burger is just dry .
    disappointed in some friends who say ambaaay 3ajeeb o 5ayaal , no offence to some but i think who love their food are the type of people whom eat anything and say 3ajeeb about everything they eat , they just dont feel the good taste of food 😀

    • danderma says:

      No offence indeed but tra many ppl go after the habba o if it’s new khalas wow o yum… no real taste in food ele oho yaklonah o ywa9lonah il sema!!! That’s why i don’t trust everyone’s taste but i can see that you and i have very similar taste buds now fa i do trust your taste 😀

      Fatburger however had some bad reviews anyways many said it was not good and they were right… the food is horrible!!! Why would anyone choose it over johnny rockets is beyond me.

      • noon says:

        yeah i noticed that we ALMOST have the same taste only difference is that your a vegetarian and im not 😛

        ambeee a9lan shyab lai yaab 7ag johnny!! i hate it when they compare it to johnny , its nothing compared to it 😀 and my sister is also a vegetarian and she hated their burger !

    I love veggie burger but its hard to find a good one madri leesh.. maybe because there are many ways to do, different ingredients and it depends on what you like hmm..

    • danderma says:

      In my case i love love LOVE Burger King’s Veggie Burger… and Carnaby’s Burger Co…. but the thing they sell in Fatburger is inedible!

      • ShoSho says:

        ween ako in Kuwait that you recommend?

        • danderma says:

          The only one ele i crave is Burger Kings spicy bean burger… but Burger King il q8 kinda dirty i once found something like a shoe lace inside my burger o ever since i would only have it when i really really REALLY crave it… ako burger king in Switzerland? if you find any ask for the veggie burger without lettuce without mayo, just cheese tomato and ketchup on top o that’s it…. much yummier and brings out the flavors nicely :)

    LOL, I know I am just too late to comment. Your post is dated back in 2010, and I am commenting in 2013. 😛

    Yesterday, I had FatBurger for the first time and I instantly remembered that I had seen its review in your blog.

    I loved my burger. It was so yum and perfect! I would DEFINITELY go there again.

    P.S. I am non-veg! :)

      It took you three years to comment but eventually you made it :p
      Check out other fat burger’s posts on my blog, the burger is currently my husband’s favourite in Kuwait. I still won’t touch their veggie burger though…
