This week, we left Berlin for the #52weeksofburgers challenge and explored Poland in the lovely city of Poznań. Since we cannot miss the chance to taste a different view on burgers, we looked for one that seemed kind enough and found Fat Bob Burger.
The place is big and nicely decorated, but I think we wronged ourselves by going there on a Friday evening. The place was busy, and since we were six people, finding a lovely table was a bit annoying. They offer menus in English if you are not a Polish speaker.
Felipe ordered the FBB Cow (Zł 23) with 200gr patty, 100gr of spiced brisket, onion rings, pickles, salsa, and their homemade relish. The burger was very juicy, but something was missing flavor-wise. The two types of meat end up being a bit redundant; it is an excellent burger but nothing too special.
I ordered the FBB Mushroom (Zł 19) with a 200gr patty, roasted mushrooms, smoked cheese, caramelized onions, and mushroom mayo. I always wanted this when ordering something with mushroom in its name; it was incredibly intensely mushroom flavored, and the onions and cheese balanced and complimented it perfectly.
The meat and the bread are fantastic, fresh, and tasty. We also got the Homemade Chips with Cheese Sauce (Zł 10), which was a bit of a bummer for some of us. Since these are literal chips (thin round slices) and not french fries, the Sweet Potato Fries (Zł 7) with Truffle Mayo on the side (Zł 3) were simply fantastic, the chips were perfect, and the sauce was excellent. They only sell soft drinks (around Zł 4).
The real problem was how long it took us to get our food, one hour after we ordered. They seemed understaffed, so I would only recommend going there on a quieter moment (definitely not a Friday night). But overall, the food was excellent quality and quite tasty; we rate it an 8/10.
