Eat a homemade burger between friends like homeit is the concept of these three Rennes friends with their establishment named Burger Homies. After a common experience in points of sale of the Ethnic Food brand in Rennes, Basil, Antoine and Charly decided to open together their first restaurant betting on homemade recipes.
The three of us wanted to continue working and doing what we knew how to do, but with our own values. The project was set up during the health crisis and confinements. We worked on our proposal, adjusted our recipes until we were satisfied and we started.
Upon entering this small cozy restaurant, located rue de Nantes between boulevards Jacques Cartier and Georges Clemenceau, the flashy blue and orange colors mixed with the good smell of warm bread – prepared and cooked on site (we checked) – and grilled meat (Breton and chopped on the spot every day) are mouth-watering.
The atmosphere is just as pleasant thanks to the three managers with which we have feel like friends from the first second.
Original burger names
On the menu, are proposed five burger recipes to denominations which precisely take up the personalities that can be found in a group of friends: greedy, teasing, homies, Veggie, kid. “The idea was to say thatwe all have a friend like this or like that”, they explain.
Soon, burgers with seasonal products will be added to the map.
The accompaniment to the burger that needs no introduction is of course the fries. And there too, they are homemade, just like the sauces : ketchup, homies (creation inspired by biggy sauce), white, mayonnaise, tease, pepper. The “sides”two kinds of cheese croquettes and desserts (cookies and panna cotta) as well.
A concept that pleases
