Fatburger by Magic Johnson, airflown from Macau!

What may this be ... I had never heard of Fatburger, but a dear friend who returned from Macau insisted on bringing me one :-)

Fatburger is an award-winning fast-food restaurant chain co-owned by Magic Johnson that operates in the United States and Canada and uses the slogan The Last Great Hamburger Stand. It is especially popular on the West Coast. While a fast food restaurant, the food is cooked and made to order.
The chain remained mostly a California chain until the late 1990s, when it began a significant expansion in North America. There are currently 93 Fatburger restaurants.

Former professional basketball player Magic Johnson, through Johnson Development Corporation, is one of the owners of the parent company.
Former talk show host Montel Williams co-owns several Fatburger restaurants in Colorado. Bay Area rapper E-40 also has a stake in the company as a franchise owner, and played a key role in bringing the first Fatburger restaurant to the San Francisco Bay Area.
On August 15, 2003, Fog Cutter Capital Group, Inc., owned by Andrew Wiederhorn, completed a $6 million investment and financing package for Fatburger Holdings, Inc. ("Fatburger"). Fatburger operates or franchises 93 hamburger stands located in California, Nebraska, Nevada, Arizona, Washington, Louisiana, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Texas, Florida, New York, Canada, and China.
Rapper Kanye West's restaurant company will be opening 10 Fatburger restaurants in Chicagoland, starting in September 2008. Hip-hop musician Pharrell, in partnership with Fatburger, opened several Fatburger restaurants in China in 2007 and 2008.

The verdict? Gorgeous beef patty, nice bun, and it tasted so gooooood even though I had put it in the fridge over-night and then toasted it on my little Oven Toaster. Can't wait to eat it FRESH ... one day!
