AD – This post is part of a paid content campaign with Yuma’s Kitchen.
Yuma’s Kitchen opened up in Milton Keynes at the start of March 2022. It is an independent, fast food takeaway serving burgers, wings and shakes. The MK location is Yumas’ second location following their Northampton location, which is already a foodie destination for Northants and MK-based foodies. Yuma’s is another great example of a business born out of lockdown. It started life in a kitchen and has since then gone from strength to strength, collaborating with local influencers and businesses to push the brand out there.
In this blog post, I’m going to give you the lowdown on Yuma’s Kitchen, tell you about their story and take a look at the food.
About Yuma’s Kitchen
Yuma’s Kitchen is owned by Mohamed Osman and his two brothers, Salim and Yasser. The three brothers started the business in lockdown, making food from their mum’s kitchen in Northampton in 2020. ‘Yuma’ is an Arabic term for ‘Mum’ and that is how Yuma’s Kitchen was named. Eventually, they outgrew their mum’s kitchen and made the move to dark kitchens, before getting their own shop front on Talbot Road in Northampton in 2021. Opening a second branch in MK in 2022 is such a testament to their success!
The business is very much family-run, with the brothers’ nephew Wail Osman set to manage the Milton Keynes branch. Having grown up in Fishermead, Wail knows the MK scene and will become the face of Yuma’s Kitchen MK once he graduates from university this year.
The food at Yuma’s Kitchen
The food at Yuma’s is unpretentious but tasty. The menu features burgers, wings, fries and shakes. For me, the burgers are the true stars of the show and something I know I’ll crave time and time again. The burgers start from £5.00 which is great value.
There are six burgers on the menu featuring three beef, two chicken and a falafel burger (which is vegetarian, soon to be fully vegan!)
The burgers feature smashed Aberdeen Angus beef, meaning you get a great patty with a tasty caramelisation on the outer edges. I love the Yumas Classic Burger which features two patties, American cheese, lettuce, caramelised onions, pickles and spicy sauce. The spicy sauce really elevates this burger – I love it!
The chicken burger is also awesome and if you are veggie, I promise you won’t be missing out if you choose the falafel burger. It’s probably one of the best veggie burgers I’ve had – The falafel is crisp on the outside, giving the burger decent texture, not the usual sogginess. It also happens to be Mohamed’s favourite burger on the menu.
Yuma’s also has a great wing selection – You can choose from regular or boneless wings and from BBQ, Buffalo or Lemon and Pepper. The Insanity wings are the hottest on the menu and not for the faint-hearted – only choose these if you fancy a challenge!
The wings are tasty – tender with a good batter. I’m a fan of the BBQ which has a great sweet flavour going on. The Fully Loaded fries are HUGE and definitely a great one to share as part of a wing or burger combo.
And if you’ve got room for dessert, Yuma’s has collaborated with Brooklyn Brownie Co. who makes totally delicious brownies. They come in three flavours: Oreo, Kinder Bueno or Biscoff. The Oreo was my favourite. I recommend microwaving it for extra gooeyness…
If you’re looking for a new burger takeaway, definitely give Yuma’s Kitchen a try. My recommendations would be the Classic Burger and the Falafel Burger. The wings are worth a try too – Wings and burgers are always a winner!
