Somewhere in Century Village Garhoud can be found the SoHo Bar & Grill Steakhouse. This restaurant, which provides outdoor seating in its wooden style tables and chairs, makes it the perfect place where their signature burger can be enjoyed in the afternoon with good company.
This place is very well known for their famous burger, The Fat Cow, a six ounce Angus beef paddy for 80 AED or Wagyu beef paddy for 95 AED, I chose the Angus. The meat comes cooked as ordered, in my case that is well done, along with lettuce, tomatoes, onions pickles and cheese served on a thick wooden block in a white sesame bun. But what makes this burger so humongous, asides from the thick paddy of course, is the added goat cheese, garlic, feta, red peppers and the SoHo secret sauce to top it all off. I would’ve changed my fries for a salad but I forgot to ask the waiter when ordering and by the time he brought me my burger it was already too late.
Overall, I must say I was a bit disappointed with this burger. I didn’t think that all the ingredients together were a good combination as there was simply too much going on making it hard to appreciate the burger for what it really is and messy. Perhaps if I had chosen the wagyu beef it would’ve tasted better. On the other hand, the fries were excellent.
Although my expectations weren’t met, I would still come back and try their other burgers. My rating for the Fat Cow burger is a 3/5.
