The other day we had been invited to the grand opening of Big Fernand. Big Fernand was established in 2012 in Paris where 3 French guys with a mustache and a bad French humor got the idea of inventing a genuine French burger, with actual French cheese. This way Big Fernand was born. « Big » because it is Generous, and « Fernand » because it’s French !!
The Branch in The Outlet Village is their first branch in UAE. Originated as said above from France where they have more than 20 branches. The outlet has 80’s music and a wooden décor to go with it. The interiors and fit-out of the restaurant carry elements of French streets so you fell a bit like being in France while actually being in the sand pit.
Big Fernand serves seven signature hamburgers with a possible 3840 combinations. We tasted the very excellent and delicious “Leonard” burger which is lamb, raw milk and grilled eggplant with coriander with Tonton Fernand sauce which we chose as the most special among the others. A brilliant burger.
Next was the “Victor” , this one is composed of veal meat which is milk fed, cheese with caramelized onion and coriander with tonton fernand sauce as well. Again a brilliant taste and really a gourmet burger.
The next burger that changed our taste buds forever was “Charles” made out of chicken fillet with raw milk, caramelized onion, tabasco,coriander chopped tarragon and tonton fernand sauce. Just a delight to have this one.
Even this was just the opening day there was a huge crowd ordering up masses of burgers. No wonder as you cannot go wrong with any of them. All Burgers came with french fries which in itself would be already worth going there.
