Don’t let the name or the branding fool you. The Boutique Kitchen may sound like it serves super-food salads, but this new delivery firm’s menu is actually an homage to good ole’ American diner food.

Mac and cheese, hot wings, southern fried chicken, cornbread – The Boutique Kitchen has all this and more, plus thick, homemade milkshakes to wash it all down. You can even have a grilled cheese sandwich delivered to your door.

Created by a group of friends raised in the U.S. and hankering after the food of their home country, the Boutique Kitchen’s dishes are hand prepared using ingredients shipped in from the States. So if you’re longing for a taste of the US of A, their fried chicken is a great place to start. The slow-cooked Texan chilli, topped with shredded cheese and sour cream, is nicely spicy, as are the crispy chicken wings doused in Frank’s Red Hot sauce.

TBK, which delivers within a 10km radius of its Al Barsha HQ, offers a good selection of sandwiches (try the grilled chicken with avocado or the pulled beef with caramelised onions) and there are salad options too. But we suspect it will be the heartier dishes that help to win this place a loyal following.
