Since it was the last day before the voucher for GBK expires, we made a decision to visit this restaurant for lunch. Again, the voucher was printed out from Studentbeans and we are grateful to learn this from Christine, really saved us a great deal!
There are two GBK outlets located in Cardiff, one in Cardiff Bay and another in Cardiff Library. The newly opened central library is located in Mill Lane, near the Marriott Hotel. We have visited the library once. It was a quiet and tranquil place where one can study, borrow a variety of different books, CDs, DVDs, Welsh language items etc.
In GBK, customers have to order their food from the counter and pay before the foods are served. Our burgers were served shortly after we placed our order. Priced at £7.35, the chicken satay burger was delicious. Fresh breast of chicken, satay sauce, mayonnaise and relish formed a great combination. The satay sauce, though slightly different from the Malaysian version, was rich and creamy, with a loads of crunchy peanuts and a tinge of spiciness. The chicken breast was tender and juicy and we also enjoy the slightly burnt edge of the bread. However, we would prefer the cranberry relish to be less sweet.
The Greek lamb burger was just as good as the chicken satay burger. In fact, ys claimed that the Greek lamb was tastier. Priced at £7.75, the burger was made by fresh lamb, houmous, cucumber raita, fresh chilli sauce and salad. The burger was rather photogenic, as described by the Metro, GBK is “a Rolls Royce of a Burger”. The combination of houmous, cucumber raita and chilli sauce form a spicy, sweet and sour taste which boosted our appetites. If you’re one who worries about the gamy flavour of the lamb, fear not because the delicious sauce overpowered the lamb, leaving only the juiciness and tenderness of the lamb to be tasted.
With the voucher we only paid £7.75 in total, purchasing 2 burgers at the price of 1. It was not a heavy meal but if you would like to have something else, GBK also offers chips and a variety of salads. For beef lovers, this might be the right place for you as GBK is known for its burgers from Aberdeen-Angus Scotch beef. If you’re looking for something different, they also serve buffalo, organic wild boar and organic pork burgers. Check out more from their website here.
