In Spain, Goiko already counts up 80 restaurants!
In 2020, the Spanish brand has decided to take over the French market for a first exportation. Its very first restaurant outside Spain has just opened in Paris, in the 2nd arrondissement.
For its opening in France, Goiko spares no expanse. The gourmet burger brand has chosen to cook original and gourmet recipes based on local and made in France ingredients.
And we can assure it, because we saw when ingredients were delivered!
In Goiko burgers, we have chicken, ground meat with pepper, boneless pork rib with barbecue sauce, fried cheese, sunny-side-up and even goat’s cheese. Vegan and vegetarian recipes are also available on Goiko’s menu.
In addition to the 10 hearty recipes with very funny names (Kiki, Bomba Sexy, Kevin Bacon…), Goiko enables you to create your very own custom-made burger.
Not in the mood for a burger? That’s okay, Goiko also provides bowls, less fat.
To pair these gourmet burgers, Goiko offers starters such as finger food, desserts and drinks, obviously.
After we started sipping our - very sweetened - beverages (we chose the house' signatures, lemon iced tea and a nice taste of lemongrass and mint lemonade granita) we go for a starter to share, teques with cheese, which is melted cheese coated in a Spanish dough that make us think of tapas. The meal starts in a very hearty way.
Then, we move on to Goiko's famous burgers. We're here for them, aren't we? The Kiki with chicken is very hearty because it's based on two breaded chicken fillets. The Kevin Bacon is just as big with its huge grilled ground meat steak mixed with bacon, fried onions and cheddar. In addition to being generous, these burgers are very tasty and we're enjoying them.
And even more with fresh and homemade fries that are gold and soft. As good as at home. Even better than some served by French gourmet burger restaurants.
Despite all the calories we've eaten already, we can't help ourselves but order some dessert. Once again, we go for the house's specialty: the Goiko cookie 2.0 which is a kind of brookie with brownie in the bottom, and chocolate cake and cookie on top. The whole is topped with some vanilla ice cream. It may sound super fat, but it's very comforting and delicious.
At Goiko, you'll enjoy a nice service to your table. The decor of this very first restaurant in France is thorough with yellow neon lights and some other colors that remind us of Spain! And so do the waiters' accents as they come straight from this country.
Honorable mention to the toilet designer: with their own corrugated transparent plastic door (apparently no one can see us through), we kind of feel like we're doing our business in front of everyone!
Burger fans, you know where to go in this early 2020!
