Shop My Favourites:

    Wednesday, 27 July 2016


    It was my birthday last weekend (incase I hadn't mentioned it enough) so naturally I spent Saturday & Sunday doing my very favourite thing: eating. 

    Over the course of the two days we managed to make our way around four restaurants and one of my favourites was this beautiful creation:
    The Big Fernand is apparently THE place for burgers over in Paris and it's now made its way across the channel to challenge our perceptions of what a good burger should be.

    The chips are called French chips (notably not French fries) and are double-cooked and sprinkled lovingly with a good coating of what I imagine to be paprika salt seasoning...
    Salty and soft with just a little crunch...exactly how I like them.
    The burgers though. Wow.

    There's several choices on the menu including lamb, beef and veal and a whole host of different cheeses (a essential for any true French foodie).

    My burger came filled with caramelised onions, raclette cheese, streaky bacon and home-made BBQ and cocktail sauces, providing just the right amount of salt and chin-dribbling goodness. 
    Another favourite was the L'Alphonse burger, filled with lamb, aubergine, Tomme de Savoie and mayo...

    which if you're feeling hungry, you can double up for a more meaty bite...
    We ate outside but if you head indoors, the whole place is decked out like your great aunt's house.

    Think floral, shabby chic with mish-matched furniture. 

    And do your self a favourite and order one of the 'Sassy' ciders....
    In my humble opinion these are bloody good burgers.
    Not quite on par with my favourite burger in London (looking at you Bleeker Black) but it's certainly got our seal of approval....
