Quick’s Foie Gras ‘Burger’

23 Dec

Fast food like only the French can pull off.
The French food joint Quick released a limited edition burger this weekend. In time for the holiday rush, they introduced the Supreme Foie Gras burger. And when my low EQ and I saw the ad, well, we just had to go try it out.

So off we went to the nearest Quick and ordered ourselves the Supreme Foie Gras.

It was surprisingly huge


Let’s check if there really is foie gras in it. Peek-a-boo I see you.

So the supreme foie gras thing is actually a burger but instead of the usual cheese, lettuce and tomatoes and ‘secret sauce’, they’ve put in some small blocks of foie gras from south west France, some roquette (rocket or arugula), and some caramelized onions.

It’s not a Tournedos Rossini but it was good, better than a normal burger. You can taste the buttery foie gras and the mix of roquette and caramelized onions just brings everything together.

When the first Starbucks opened here, the French went all crazy, not for it, but crazy against it. They said that with this new type of coffee place is a smudge to the cafe culture over here. You’d think they’d say the same for foie gras being on a fast food chain’s menu. But aside from the animal rights people (duh, force fed ducks), I haven’t really heard of anything against this sandwich.

For 5€ or 7.50€ for the menu, I think it’s a pretty good deal. You get to try something new and it’s actually quite decent.


Quick’s Supreme Foie Gras is available until the end of the year.
