The first thing that attracted us to this burger restaurant has been its striking decor.
We were walking through Dalma Mall and we could not help but being drawn towards the bright red seats, the luggage over them and the overall underground feeling, complete with curved roof over our head! Attention has been given to the smallest details, such as the order number which is in the shape of a rail crossing sign.
Grand Central is a local burger chain, created by an UAE national and an American from New York. They transported their restaurants right into the tunnels of a New York subway, sourced local and organic ingredients and created something of high quality, fun, and original in the somehow very crowded world of burger franchises.
I ordered mini veggie burgers with a side of curly fries. W ordered the beef burger with sweet potatoes fries. To top it off, we shared a cookies and cream milkshake.
Our food arrived in beautiful packets, almost wrapped as designer clothes in a posh boutique. We were very impressed!
We were not disappointed by the taste either: everything was absolutely gorgeous!
The burgers were tasty and juicy, the fries were perfectly crisp, and the milkshake had cookies’ crumbles happily clogging up the straw.
We really loved everything about this restaurant.
Thanks to its great atmosphere, really helpful staff and wonderful food, Grand Central has quickly become one of our favourite places to go when we want a really good burger.
