Reform Street in Dundee has received another boost with news that a Hollywood-based premium burger chain is to launch its first Scottish outlet.
Fatburger, which was established in southern California around 70 years ago, will open in the city and be run by local businessman Akky Hayat.
Akky and his family already run German Doner Kebab in Reform Street, and will open the new venture nearby.
Akky said: “We are thrilled to be bringing yet more sensational foreign food flavours to
Dundee … Fatburger Buffalo offers an all-American treat as an alternative to what is currently available and we expect it to join GDK as a popular place to eat out in the town centre.”
The new restaurant will seat 60 and will be open 11am-11pm seven days a week. Akky hopes it will be open for business by the end of September.
Reform Street has been hit by a series of high-profile store closures in recent years and still features a number of closed shop units.
However, the street has seen something of a resurgence with new Project Pizza (previously Project Pie), German Doner Kebab and the Dai Pai Asian street food-themed restaurant boosting the street’s reputation as a destination for “foodies”.
