Menu review: Gourmet Burger Kitchen

Mon 2 Jun 2014 - posted by Jess

With Mumma Wicks coming to visit me I knew I needed to take her somewhere which would satisfy her fussy taste-buds and Gourmet Burger Kitchen fits the bill. It sits along what I like to call 'Restaurant Row' in Cardiff City Centre and has a unique Kiwi vibe which spans across the decor to the food.

We were greeted warmly by General Manager Jordan and ordered some Halloumi Bites to start and we both had a Strawberry Milkshake. Let me just start by saying that although you may have a heart attack when you see the price of this milkshake... It's SO worth it! Made using real fruit and thick ice cream it's possibly made it to my top 5 milkshakes ever!

For our mains I had a Camemburger and mum had a Satay Chicken Burger- NAKED (I will explain this more below), we also shared some skinny fries which came with...wait for it... Baconnaise!

Here was my burger... 

100% prime British beef, Camembert, hash brown, truffle mayo, onion jam, relish and a brioche bun.

My only complaint with this burger would be that all the sauce made the bun quite soggy on the bottom, but I overlooked this due to the amazingness of the burger as a whole.

My mum opted for the Chicken Satay... Now let me explain that with any of the burgers you can 'Go Naked' which means you can have it bun-less with a side salad instead. 

Chargrilled Chicken, Satay sauce, house mayo, relish, tomato, red onion, alfalfa sprouts & a green salad.

The satay was fantastic, if not a little bit too spicy, but combined with relish and green salad it made for a perfect summer lunch.

The skinny fries were gorgeous and yes... they came with a bacon-flavoured mayonnaise with small bacon bits in as well.

Try not to be too jealous guys… This meal gets a 9 out of 10 from me!
