I was invited to try out The Grill Shack over the weekend . It’s located on top floor food court of the Dubai Mall and has the Ice Rink view underneath.
It’s a brand new homegrown in Dubai Restaurant that serves up the steaks, ribs, burgers and fancy shakes. So if you are planning to pay a visit, make sure you are hungry enough and grub your meat loving lunch/dinner partner. The ambiance is quite cool with garage style decor and the partially open kitchen.
The moment we settled on the table with the ice rink view, the burgers with the stabbed knife caught my interest. Burgers are huge and served on a wooden palette with the french fries on the side. Although I was impressed with the service of burger but I wanted to try out their steaks. The waiter gave a great idea of going for their combo offers in which we could try everything.
We started with the Tasting platter sharing @130 dhs that had the peri peri chicken wings, crispy calamari, sriracha chilly prawns, short rib spring roll and Cheetos chicken tenders. Haven’t tried the the spring roll but I can assure you that the rest were totally delicious. Prawns are spicy but very medium spicy so it was very right fo me as I don’t appreciate too spicy food. Was in love with those Cheetos chicken tenders and the crispy calamari. The size of a plater is pretty good for 3 adults to share. Was about to forget to mention that drinks were served along with the starter platter. We picked the watermelon and passion fruit mojitos both in glass jars for share. The glass jar was quite narrow so it’s not too big to share, or maybe because it tasted too yummy it seemed enough only for me. So I had my watermelon mojito alone, with few sips by Kamronbek.
What I liked the most about the service is that everything is served very quick. Hence Kamronbek received his chicken nuggets with french fries before our starters. I have tried the nuggets, because Kamronbek makes sure that I try his food, it was crispy yet soft, just right for little ones. Tasted tender and juicy. And I loved the french fries with the red pepper powder on it. Kept on stealing few from Kamronbek in between the starters.
Right after the starters we received our Farmhouse Grill – sharing 2 @225 drh which was more than enough for 3 adults. Meat was just as medium well as we asked for. Juicy and tender, loved the lamb rack the most. Although I am not a chicken person, I liked their juicy chicken that is also in the platter. Slider platter @75 dhs was served along, we asked for all three to be beef. Three sliders were beautifully served on a stand. Tasted good enough, one can have it as meal having three sliders different: meat, chicken or shrimp.
We couldn’t leave without trying their shakes. We ordered the Cheesecake and 3D caramel Popcorn @39 dhr each. One is good for sharing, especially after the load of meat. We were too impressed with the design of it. Popcorns tasted too good and the cheesecake is one of must tries. The shake was over topped with cream and I couldn’t reach the real taste of the shake. Cream size should be definitely decreased in the shakes. However if you are a cream lover, you must definitely try it. Kids had a blast. Kamronbek couldn’t stop admiring those fancy shakes while enjoying the cheesecake from the shake, let me mind you that he never eats cheesecake. Told you, those are definitely must try.
By the way their menu is showcased on Ipad so you can see the photos of everything you want to order.
Try out and enjoy this brand new Dubaian way of American Restaurant called The Grill Shack, you won’t regret!
