If you’ve ever spent more than an hour with me, or if you follow my Instagram, you’ll know that I really really really love food. It was, therefore, my absolute pleasure to be invited to the grand re-opening of Gourmet Burger Kitchen’s Trafford Centre restaurant. I hopped on a bus to check it out a couple of weeks ago with my friend Toni.
Aesthetically, the restaurant has had a total refresh. It looks great, quite simple but warm and inviting, just the right level of lighting (bright enough to see your food properly but not quite bright enough for photos with no flash), definitely a pleasant place to be. Now more importantly, the food. I had the ‘Camemburger’, which consists of one (juicy and cooked to my liking) burger patty, a hash brown, onion jam, truffle mayo, and of course a big chunk of Camembert. This is one of my favourites on the GBK menu, the crispy hash brown really makes it in my opinion! I’m also a fan of the Camembert and Cranberry Chicken Burger and the Avocado Bacon Burger. On the side, we got sweet potato fries (with the most amazing baconaise) and GBK’s delicious skinny fries, and we started with some yummy Halloumi bites too. I also had a milkshake (Oreo flavour – so big and thick that it’s pretty much a meal in itself!) and new to the menu home-made lemonade. Everything was absolutely delicious, we both left full to bursting! I do feel like GBK is underrated on the whole, as far as chains go I’ve always enjoyed my meals there and can usually manage to spend under a tenner unless I really fancy a milkshake (the milkshakes are really excellent, so it can be tough to resist). It’s a great go-to for a fail-safe meal out, especially on Sunday-Thursday when I get 30% student discount!
Are you a GBK fan? And did you enjoy this post? I really want to incorporate more lifestyle-y things into my blog!
