Pickl, the popular Dubai-born brand has opened its first restaurant in the Kingdom at Al Aali Mall.

Foodies in Bahrain, particularly burger enthusiasts, are in for a treat. Pickl at Al Aali Mall is now open, in partnership with Zayani Foods, the food and beverage arm of Al Zayani Investments Group. Diners can enjoy a range of burgers: beef, chicken and plant-based, free from preservatives, hormones and antibiotics. Guests can create their own cheese burgers using a variety of toppings and sauces or enjoy their chicken sandos (sandwiches) in a range of spice options – Plain, Medium-ish, Feel the Heat, Nashville and Reaper! Further available as part of the menu are Pickl’s indulgent Gooder Milkshakes, an unmissable selection of loaded fries and fresh fried chicken tenders.

The restaurant, with floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides and Pickl’s signature pink and teal colours on full show, is a stunning addition to Seef District. From the iconic ‘ORDER HERE’ and ‘PICK UP’ signs to the double-height ceilings and raw finishes, the Bahrain outlet fully translates the original restaurants’ modern and industrial feel.

Steve Flawith, Founder and CEO of Pickl, said: “Bahrainis have been shouting for Pickl for a long time, so we’re delighted to finally give them what they want. Having such a strong local partner like Zayani Foods ensures we’ll be able to give the people of Bahrain the one-of-a-kind Pickl experience.”

Majid Khalid Alzayani, Managing Director of Zayani Foods, said: “We have been actively looking to expand our variety of offerings at Zayani Foods. We believe Pickl will be a perfect fit to our market given the variety of its offer and track record in the UAE, and are excited to launch the brand in Bahrain.”

The opening follows a Burgers for Bahrain activation in the UAE, which allowed Bahrain CPR holders to eat for free. Activations held across Bahrain include Dunk for Pickl at Up and Down Trampoline Park and Padel for Pickl at Padel Bahrain, with winners taking home vouchers they can reclaim for burgers at Pickl. ✤
