BRD by SLAB
Time Out Says
For those who don’t know, BRD is a casual chicken joint in the burgeoning foodie hub Dar Wasl Mall. It’s from chef Omar Rodriguez, the man behind SLAB at La Mer and its focus is simple – chicken wings, tenders and burgers (or sandos, as is the current trend) and fries.
Service is simple, too. Order at the counter, take your number and wait to be called. There are no airs or graces here, and the place is all the more refreshing for it. Ask for recommendations from the staff and they’ll be sure to help you out. As for us, we say try as much as you can.
We order a Korean-style sando first, alongside some crispy tenders coated in a spicy rub and fries. It’s all delicious and we go back to the counter and order more. This time it’s six wings in a spicy sauce and more tenders, with a few different dips. All lip-smackingly brilliant.
Prices are around the Dhs40 mark per sando, so you can order a few things and still walk away with enough for the cab fare home. But we say get another side of wings and walk it.
There are a few good reasons to go to Dar Wasl Mall, and BRD is right up with the best of them.
