Gourmet Burger Kitchen, your new favourite burger joint. Originating in the UK and not the US for a change, the renowned restaurant has finally made its way over to Dubai.
We were invited to try out the menu at their Marina Mall location, a mall I prefer due to the little amount of traffic and ease of parking. So with three empty stomachs ready to devour anything presented before us, we headed to GBK ready to tear into a juicy burger.
Personally, I absolutely love pineapple in my burgers, so I went with the Kiwi Burger. Accompanying my precious pineapple slice was a 100% prime Australian Angus beef patty, beetroot, fried egg, aged Cheddar, house mayo and salad.
Friend A went with her favourite, the Mushroom Swiss burger. A unique yet delicious combination of ingredients including grilled mushroom, truffle mayo Swiss cheese and caramelized onion.
While friend B, who is also the kid of friend who loves to be different aka “I’m detoxing”, went for the more green option and ordered the Caesar Salad. But hey, to her credit, the Romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, homemade croutons and house Caesar dressing did look amazing. I’d still prefer my burger any day of the week!
To accompany our two burgers and salad, I went all-in and ordered Chili cheese fries, crunchy homemade onion rings, juicy chargrilled corn and a 50/50 option of skinny fries and sweet potato fries.
What I love about GBK is their ability to jam-pack all your favourite hamburger ingredients in a healthy choice, while still maintaining all the mouthwatering flavors. Are you salivating yet?
Well you can stop now! Just head to your nearest GBK (Marina Mall, DIFC or Mirdif City Centre) and put your endless hunger to rest.
Be sure you follow GBK on Facebook for new updates and menus.
