Making Roomies for a Burger

Roomies

14 Rue du Cygne, 75001 Paris, France

Hailing from Melbourne means that I have high expectations when it comes to burgers, and when I spotted Roomies amongst the top-rated restaurants in Paris, I knew we had to judge it for ourselves. Luckily for us, its location was also perfect for a quick lunch break amidst all of our frantic sightseeing.

The concept was simple – much like a Subway for burgers – choose your burger, cheese, sauce and as many of the vegies as your heart desires. I loved that mushrooms were an option, and that onions came in both raw and caramelised varieties. A side of salad or fries were included (bonus!).

I have to say, this burger was very impressive and far exceeded my expectations. The bun was a soft, toasted brioche, the burger patty was well-cooked until just pink in the middle, and the grilled mushrooms were a fantastic addition. Even the fries, which are so often neglected at burger joints, were beautifully golden and crunchy.

Roomies, without a doubt, served up some amazing food. I loved the concept as well – being able to choose what goes into your burger at no extra cost is a fantastic idea that I think should be adopted back home. To top it off, the staff were friendly and helpful! I’d highly recommend that you give this restaurant a try while in Paris – you definitely won’t regret it!

    • Not as artful as you might see in Melbourne, more of the standard ‘wrap in paper packaging’ style haha! I wish I was still in Paris! I’m just slowly writing up all my foodventures from when I was there last year 🙂 Thanks for reading though xx
