American diner Denny’s, held the launch of their second branch in the U.A.E. For those who don’t know, Denny’s has been in Dubai from quite some time. Located in Al Ghurair Centre, Al Rigga.
The second branch opened about a month ago, and since I couldn’t make it to the opening, I was invited to try their menu on a day of my choice. The area was quite easy to find, right opposite Times Square Centre on Sheikh Zayed Road. And if you’ve been to Bertin Bistro, that makes it all the more simple for you.
Being a Saturday, I saw a lot of families in for brunch, or an early lunch if you’d like to call it that way. We decided to settle down with our drinks, a chocolate milkshake and a Groovy Mango smoothie. Both of them thick in consistency and enough to fill you up. So don’t go overboard with these 😉
Our brunch started with Nachos loaded with minced meat, onions and tomatoes with a huge dollop of sour cream. I like that they allow you to order half portion, and it’s big enough for two. Our Gold Fried shrimps were mediocre, I don’t know what I was expecting, but the description on the menu was way better than it tasted.
Already half stuffed, we decided to stick with one main course, and of course we tried the Build Your Own Burger. Ours constituted of a beef patty, cheddar cheese and bacon strips in a sesame seed bun. We asked our beef to be medium done. This came with some onion rings, perfectly crispy with no oil dripping.
The burger was good, meat prepared the way I liked it and juicy to bite into. How could we not get fries with this? We asked for a Smothered Cheese Fries from their appetizers. These were full of cheese and crumbled bacon. Obviously delicious!
With our bellies full, we thought of skipping dessert. Fortunately, our server didn’t let us go without trying their Red Velvet Cheesecake. This massive slice of cake was topped with cream cheese and four layers of red velvet cake stuffed with chocolate chips!
American chains that provide all day breakfasts (yes, you heard me right!) and good food are hard to come by. Add huge portions that are worth the price and friendly service, and you’ve found your new favourite American brunch place!
