need some help in replicating a pretty good burger [bun]

Hi everyone. I'm a long-time reader, first-time poster. I've been trying to re-create a burger I had, which I'm sort of embarrassed to say came from the Virgin Megastore in Paris (I had plenty of real French food too, I swear!). Up until now I've cooked off of recipes but I figured this was a pretty easy first ad-hoc cooking project. The burger itself isn't that amazing (fried egg is always a nice touch though) but the bun was really pretty awesome. It's basically woven out of really thin shoestring potatoes, and bound together with some sort of cheese. I've tried to make it but thus far I've only really made a mess. Is there a fancy French term for this kind of potato concoction? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do the weave?


Btw, I stuck a picture at the bottom. Not the best picture, but if you take a look at the bun you'll see what I'm talking about.
