Time Out Says
This is because, as we eye up the menu, our stare is captured by a few particularly queso-tastic options, and of course we can’t resist.
You’d imagine that a sharable dish like nachos, priced at Dhs49, would be achievable for two people. Well, we can’t decide whether our appetite isn't on top form on our visit, or if the plate is so stacked that we find it almost impossible.
That is by no means a bad thing, you get value for your money, that’s for sure. The only problem is that it’s so unfeasibly cheesy that it feels like we’re embarking on a challenge, not a relaxed dinner.
And it’s more of the same when our mains arrived – we really wish we’d ordered in between courses, instead of all at once at the start – because the prawn quesadillas are filled to the cheesy brim, too. It’s a cheese-lover’s dream, and with a bit of a spicy kick to it, there are many who’d gladly eat here forever.
We also opt for the chilli beans burger – a beef patty topped with chilli beans, jalapeños, cheese (again) and onion rings, and served with fries. We’re ready to burst by the time we get halfway through this monster, but at Dhs70 for our burger and Dhs60 for the quesadillas, we’ve got cracking value for money.
If you’re not a fan of cheese, there are plenty of other grilled items and international meals, but approach the dairy dishes with caution, because they are not shy in slapping it on. But again, that’s not a bad thing.
The Bottom Line
Arrive hungry and roll out the door.

The tidal wave of alternative nights out that’s been generated since the arrival of Bongo’s Bingo last year has spread to the Girders Friday brunch. Now known as the Crazy Bingo Friday Brunch, expect “crazy bingo”, a talent contest and huge prizes to be won at this five-hour brunch, running from noon until 5pm. The bingo isn’t the only thing that’s crazy, with this brunch available for just Dhs210 per person for unlimited house drinks. Can’t make brunch? Make a date for Thursdays, which are all about the ’80s with a three-hour unlimited house drinks package available for Dhs160 between 9pm and 1am, with a DJ spinning old-school classic tunes. Dhs210.
