The maxim goes, you can have a bunch of glorious burgers, buckets of fries and a pool of drinks (caught you, not the ones you just thought) and get the party going. But, everyone has their own idea of a dream burger—smoked, char grilled, griddled, anday wala burger, hah you name it! For me, unapologetically gooey cheese, fine beef (not a chicken burger fan), and loads of lettuce, and onions make the best burger! The messier the better!
When the SWOT team recently visited the Wall Street, I looked forward to all these taste aspects besides of course a contemporary ambiance as the name suggests.
So here is a quick review!
Wall Street is located at Badar Commercial 10th street near Daily Dubai Restaurant. The parking space is sufficient but as the 10th street houses a couple other restaurants and cafes, the lane gets congested.
Ambiance and Interior (8/10)
Wall street is a small, double storey, cozy space set around a fusion of contemporary and quirky interior. Right as you enter inside, you observe hints of funky yellow and black murals and quotes. I especially liked the wooden benches which give an air of upbeat outlook to the interior.
We ordered Gourmet fries and Jalapeno poppers as the starter. Gourmet fries were fresh and crispy but I think some generous parmesan grating would have made them even tastier. The oven hot poppers were absolutely cheese stricken and gooey. Unlike the usual Jalapenos stuffed with chicken and cheese, they were prepared as nuggets which were easy to dig into. I am going to have them for sure next time I visit Wall Street.
For the main course, I had “The Shroom” which is a cheese, pepperoni stuffed beef patty topped with lettuce and mushroom sauce. I had expected the cheese to explode out with every bite, but it was not the case. The patty to bun ratio was perfect but patty could have been juicier. Nevertheless, the blend of pepperoni and mushroom was quite palatable and iceberg added crunch to the taste. There were hints of dressing (or was I hallucinating?), but not noticeable enough to make any difference in the taste. Curly fries were fresh and crispy.
We had hazelnut fudge brownies which Wall Street outsources from a home-based vendor and going to include in their menu soon. A fudge style brownie is supposed to have a moist, dense texture, but I found it a bit dry.
Quite inviting! The meal was served in unique wooden trays spacious enough to fill up all the items of the main course.
I was quite happy with the portion size. The fries especially were served wholeheartedly and probably I went too high on fries to finish the burger.
The price point is a bit higher than a few burger joints in the town, for instance, you get a meal for Rs 450 at Burger Inc, but a meal (burger, sideline, and a drink) at wall street cost about Rs 519. I think, since the quantity and serving of Wall Street can be substituted, a few people might find the price relatively higher. Here is a breakdown of the main items I had:
Cheesy Jalapeno Popper (5 pieces) Rs 239
The Shroom: Rs 369 (with meal an addition of rs 150)
Curly Fries Rs 120
The experience was pleasant, the food was toothsome, but service was quite slow so this is something they need to improve. Here is a summary of rating of different factors detailed out above.
