Multiple formation of tables, all in irregular color mix-and-match scattered around the restaurant with eye catching artwork hanging on the wall made of Rubik's Cube, Grabbing Hands is the latest addition of gourmet burger restaurants in Kota Kinabalu. Located next to Pregio the coffee specialist and opposite Lucy's Kitchen at Metro Town, the young management team of Grabbing Hands creatively positioned themselves as the equation of Art + Food, offers something different, despite minor, than the competitors. I have tried the signature beef burger here - the Down Under, a thick layer of beef patty with pineapple, beef bacon, egg and salad paired with an ungraded Truffle Oil Fries. The overall portion was pretty huge that I cannot finish my fries at the end, but the beef patty was well seasoned and the burger was impressive. Love it!
