Ever since GRK first opened its branch at City Center Me’aisem it has been an instant hit especially among those who value health as well as taste. Buzzingtales recently reviewed GRK Fresh Greek situated at Burjuman, Dubai that celebrates the authentic taste of Greece with the addition of delicious new dishes to its widely popular menu. Following the success of their first restaurant at Me’aisem City Centre, GRK Fresh Greek marked the opening of their second and flagship restaurant at BurJuman Centre this month with a new and diverse menu of delectable dishes made using premium ingredients and traditional methods.
The ambiance is a mix of rustic wooden and chic blue and gives a soothing, calm, welcoming vibe. Located strategically right opposite Carrefour the restaurant has both indoor and outdoor sitting options.
Our little buzztales loved the Kids meal, GRK Feast,Chicken Yerros Pitta stuffed with chicken, fresh greens and GRK Fresh sauce . On the side was a pack full of indulgence, potato fries, especially permissible given the healthy main dish.
We lapped up our Portobello, which was a plate full of wholesome goodness with seasoned brown rice, pitta, giant mushrooms, salad and GRK Fresh Sauce. We had never tasted a more delicious lentil soup before our encounter with it at GRK. I made a special connection with the Greek salad which had an infusion of lovely green cucumber, red tomatoes, delicately sliced onions, delectable olives and cubes of white cheese.
Now for the most important dish, that is dessert. It’s really a challenge trying to stick to a healthy diet with my kind of sweet tooth. The fresh frozen dessert options at GRK Fresh was a wish come true as I could gained a guilt free license for indulgence. I loved the smooth creamy texture of the fresh frozen yogurt made irresistible with generously sprinkled nuts, fruits & nuttela on the top.
Another hot favorite was the Salted Caramel Baklava Cheesecake. This dish has landed at GRK straight from heaven and we fell head over heels in love with this delicacy.
It was an afternoon brunch to remember. A special mention of the staffs who were super cool, efficient and warm, is warranted. Their smile added to the clean, soft ambience, with a predominance of blue. The menu offers several customizable options with numerous varieties of Yeeros, salads, sides, grillers, orzo bowl and beverages to choose from. Full marks to GRK for creating modern and fresh flavors from well kept secrets of ancient Greek kitchens.
