Our story

From the heart of Europe: Budapest, Hungary.

We opened our first burger restaurant more than 7 years ago, in the middle of 2015, called Bamba Marha Burger Bar. Fast forward to 2022: we are one of the biggest, not franchised burger chain in Hungary, with now 7 outlets at top locations of the capital.

Our burgers multiple times had been chosen to be the best in the city and the country. Also based on travel magazine Big Seven Travel, we were Europe’s 6th best and the world’s 4th best burger.

In the meantime, our company group has opened an AVPN (Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, The True Neapolitan Pizza Association) certified Neapolitan-style pizza place (Donna Mamma Pizza Napoletana), and also a Michelin Guide listed restaurant (Hoppá! Bistro).

Now the time has come to have our first burger place open in Dubai, at the popular City Walk, and later this year on Dubai Marina. Hope you’ll like our burgers, our atmosphere, and ultimately the lifestyle which comes with The Goofy Cow brand.

In this book you’ll find some of our best selling burger recipes, sauces, tips and tricks regarding the myth of the perfect burger. One thing is for sure: making a good burger is easy to learn, but hard to master.

Hope you’ll like The Goofy Cow style, from Hungary to Dubai. And finally do not forget: #BeGoofy.

The creator of the Goofy Burgers

Jani (Janos) Jancsa is the mind behind the burgers. He had a comprehensive, more than a decade long career in corporate finance but when he became 30 years old, he quit from his daily job, and started to live his dreams.

He has the biggest burger related food blog in Hungary, and also he was included in some of the best online cooking shows in the country. Nowadays he also runs his social channels, with cooking and food tasting content mainly.

He is a co-owner and founding member in the Hungarian company group which has 9 restaurants, including the Bamba Marha Burger Bar chain. He is also the co-owner and culinary director of The Goofy Cow Burger.

He likes to think that every good burger has a good story, and also everything can be thought of as a hamburger. He likes sometimes the extravagant side of the burgers, different ingredients, special toppings and unexpected compositions.

He loves his burgers, and hopefully, Dubai and you’ll love them too. And don’t forget: a good burger is always juicy.
