Last week, we were in the mood for a burger, yet we didn’t want to stray too far from Edapally. A quick search on Zomato led us to The Grill Lab located in North Kunnumpuruam, near the Amrita Hospital signal. The place is slightly hidden from the main road and after taking a wrong turn that delayed us by a few minutes, we reached there around 9 p.m.
The restaurant, with its orange walls, is a small, cosy place decorated with beautiful wall paintings. The bean bags on the floor and the peppy music playing in the background gives it a great ambience. Once we were seated, we had the menu given to us, which had a range of wraps, pastas, burgers, and pizzas along with fries, garlic bread, and cheese balls as starters. There was a wide range of burgers to choose from but the vegetarian option seemed limited. After much enquiry and discussion about the menu, we ordered cheese balls with homemade mayo for starters, a crispy chicken wrap, BBQ pulled chicken burger and a garden burger, along with a thirst quencher and a green mango and ginger from their homemade juice range. I would have loved to give the pizza a try as well, since we were told that the pizzas are thin crust (the way I like mine), but we were in a mood for burgers and decided to keep it for the next time.
