Even with a handful of eateries around Gulshan Avenue, it becomes challenging for people living or working in the area to find fresh quality food at a reasonable price. Addressing this, the husband-wife duo Nafees Alam and Nadia Khan have introduced Farmhouse Burger to the food scene of Dhaka. Along with the management of Tanvir Chowdhury, the burger joint, located at Bay’s 23 Gulshan Avenue, brings you a taste of the classic western burgers.
The atmosphere of Farmhouse Burger not only caters to office goers, but also families, students and even children, for whom they have a patio outdoors, equipped with a foosball table. With an idea to keep the environment casual, the burger joint does not have an option to make early reservations, but does offer to host parties or celebrations on short notice. At the end of the day, the burger joint focuses on connecting people to their community and food.
Once you settle in, the décor is quite welcoming and wholesome, and time begins to fly by easily. The patio, surrounded by unique graffiti, represents expression of thought and creativity while the decor indoors is more down to earth. With the station upfront, you get to have a glimpse of your food being freshly made. Overall, it definitely is a good spot to take photos and have a good time.
With an incentive of providing additive-free and fresh food, Farmhouse Burger provides a concise menu, but with a variety of items ranging from your basic French fries to fried pickles and mac n cheese. For those with a sweet-tooth, this place is a milkshake utopia. Other than your classic Oreo shake, they offer sweeter milkshakes which come with a thick layer of jam and in other nuttier flavours. Their main focus, the burgers, are not your average chicken or beef patty burgers, and each comes with a unique sauce to complement the freshness of the meat. You can rest assured that you will never have a dried-out patty in this joint, nor will any of the burgers or fries be one dimensional. The use of ingredients like blue cheese and truffle in both the burgers and fries definitely sets them apart from other burger joints. To top that off, their brioche buns are made fresh every day from scratch and so are the perfect sponges to soak up all the sauce.
With its array of affordable and fresh food, along with a gratifying environment, the burger joint welcomes people of all ages. Through not just food, but by also being charitable, the burger hotspot gives back to the community and plans to further host restaurant benefits.
Prioritising safety and fire safety, the burger joint is located at Bay’s 23 Gulshan Avenue, a space by one of the most reputable developers in the country. Open from 4PM to 11PM from Saturday to Wednesday, and till 1AM on Thursdays and Fridays, Farmhouse Burger also provides a delivery service during their respective working hours.
One might say that Farmhouse Burger proves itself to be Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe, straight out of Riverdale, as it brings people together and spreads happiness.
