HALAL STATUS Fully Halal

Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC Restaurant

Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC RestaurantCambridge Gourmet Grill has been open a year and has big plans too.

They’ve gone all out to give their diners that promised gourmet experience by investing in a Josper grill.

This 40-cover venue is simply decorated, with cushioned high seating, barrel designed chairs, and warm lighting that gives the place a warm and pleasant atmosphere.

More importantly, all their meat is sourced from HMC-approved suppliers.

GRILLS

Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC Restaurant lamb chops

Lamb Chops – 5 per portion £9.99

Strongly marinated in a tandoori spice, these lamb chops (5 per portion) were large, meaty, and accompanied by fries and some greens.

While they certainly tastied rather good, they were sadly over done. And at £9.99, and that too in Cambridge, it was a tad pricey.

Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC Restaurant Chicken grill

Chicken Grill (Half) – Chicken comes with fries or rice £5.99

Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC RestaurantThis half grilled skin-on chicken was firstly steam cooked, before being based in a viscous peri peri marination, and flame grilled.

The result: a bird that fell apart beautifully, with flesh that was as moist and as tender as you’d like.

To accompany this tasty chicken, we opted for hot sauce, though lemon & herb is also available.

In addition, it also comes with either fries or fragrant rice, and all at a reasonable £5.99.

Chicken bites with fries (kid’s meal)

A generous portion of quality boneless chicken bites – actually more than just bites if we’re honest – is what made up the kid’s meal.

The crispy fries were great too and available with the following sauces:

The accompanying sauces come with the above grills; the best one being the peri peri.

BURGERS

burger Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC Restaurant

Signature Burger – 1/2lb £4.80, 1/4lb £3.40

burger Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC RestaurantGranted this isn’t the most attractive looking burger we’ve ever had, but given that this 1/2lb was their signature, we had to give it a go.

And though this isn’t going to win the most innovative burger award any time soom, it was decently executed and, more importantly, tasted good, with the patty being well spiced.

The intense heat of the Jopser grill also played its part by successfully sealing in the juices while providing a crispy exterior, and thus some texture.

We were told, however, that they’d be changing the overly crispy bun with a brioche variety, as well as introducing a 4oz student meal for £6.99.

PIZZAS

pizza Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC Restaurant

Thin crust 14″ pizza £13.50, collection £8.70

This handmade thin crust pizza had a great, premium taste about it.

Fresh ingredients, including mozzarella cheese, accounted for its quality. It’s also a huge pizza!

SIDES

salad Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC Restaurant

Mixed Salad £2.58

It has to be said, this restaurant is certainly generous with its portion sizes (London restaurants pay attention!).

A bowl of mixed salad that could even be shared between four with other meals.

Goat Cheese Moroccan Salad £4.50

This Goat Cheese Moroccan Salad was a far better option, with plenty of goat’s cheese and pomegranate seeds.

The tangy sauce will be needed to counter the sharpness of the slaw.

DRINKS

drink Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC Restaurant

Apple juice £4.50 bottle, glass £2.50

Pure apple juice; what more could you ask for?

All as expected, except that at £4.50 per bottle, we’re wondering about their mark up. Again, very generous!

DESSERTS

Unfortunately we went on a bank holiday so parts of the menu where not available, including the desserts.

Mövenpick icecream Cambridge Gourmet Grill Halal HMC Restaurant

Mövenpick Ice Cream – Double cream: £3.95 1 scoop, 2scoop £4.95

Branded ice cream and one of the best around.

The Double Cream option was super creamy and had a smooth, silky texture you won’t encounter very often. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Summary
Cambridge Gourmet Grill is the only fully Halal (HMC-sourced) restaurant in the city and offers a variety of options that range from burgers to peri peri chicken and pizza.

The good thing about them is their generosity. With large portions, the food is wholesome, hearty and tasty, and relatively affordable too.

They also seem to be super ambitious given both their investment in a Josper grill, and their very own Android app, which offers even more savings.
