My favorite burger is the Rib Meat Burger from The Meat Co – where 300 grams of braised rib meat dangle out of a super soft bun like “love handles”. Can anything ever go wrong with rib meat? In addition to this, a huge Portabello mushroom stuffed into the burger makes it all the more difficult to hold or eat it. Although, a wee bit expensive than other burgers it is humongous and good enough for two people to share. Do not be afraid to get your fingers messy – I promise it is worth it!

If I think of a burger, I think of Slider station hands down and there is no second thought! The American quintessential comfort food is brought to Dubai with a quirky concept of serving sliders in a dim lighting and an industrial decor that has been inspired from the American gas stations in the 1940’s exposed walls. The decor requires a moment of its own and is one of its kind.
Burger on point! For the most part, my favorite slider is ‘dangerous’ amongst other sliders on offer, which looks dangerous in the true sense of the word as it is served red in color and it gets its color from beetroot. This is the real deal, the burger was topped with buttermilk fried chicken, jack, jalapeño, shredded lettuce and chimichuri aioli. The flavors are unique and by far the best slider I’ve ever had before. Extremely succulent, juicy, crispy and messy for sure with the finest quality of ingredients and chimichuri mayo(home-made) that has the most distinct flavor and is my favorite bit.

You might want to consider making a prior reservation as the queue is pretty long.

My favorite burger in Dubai has to be a Five Guys Cheeseburger. Although more expensive than its country of origin, you can’t go past Five Guys burgers for their fresh and quality ingredients. The juicy, thick all American beef patties with layers of oozing melted cheese and customize-able toppings will have you fuller and happier than a fat kid with cake. This fast food legend has been handcrafting burgers and fries since 1986 and it shows. With two convenient locations in Dubai Mall and now Dubai Marina Mall.

Ever since I heard of Nando’s I always wanted to try their food, but being a Vegetarian the problem was everyone kept telling me they only serve non-vegetarian food but after I saw their menu and came to know they even have few or may be one or two vegetarian options made me happy and curious to try their food.

Why do I like their burger? Because everything tastes good and fresh and is equally filling too, their burger patty tastes good but quite ordinary which has the common ingredients a veggie burger would have like potatoes, peas, carrot, onions and seasoning. But what makes their burger taste yummy?? That’s their sauces, mainly peri peri sauce and garlic herb sauce which makes the burger taste yummy and mouth watering, that’s what drags me back to Nando’s! You should without fail try their assorted fries, they’re absolutely the staple fries before guys fries!

Eggspectation, located at the Beach, boasts some very good burgers on their menu. And by good, I mean the big and messy type. The ones that would be perfect for a cheat meal, or for any meal (applies to people like me)

They have mouth watering names like the Mushroom Melt and Chipotle Burger. On my recent visit, the Bbq Burger caught my eye. This was the STAR! And I mean it. With fried onion rings, a big meat patty and loads of cheese, this took our taste-buds for a ride with its soft and crunchy texture. Served on the side was a scrambled egg as requested by us. This meal deserves a 10 on 10.

Heck, make it 20 on 10!

Since burgers aren’t exactly light on the calorie scale, I prefer to get full value for mine, and the one place I can rely on to do that is Burgerfuel. With fun, unusual toppings along with well seasoned, perfectly cooked beef and chicken patties on a soft bun, they cover all the basics of a good burger, and challenge you to experiment with toppings like beetroot, mango slices and grilled pineapples. That too at extremely reasonable prices. Also, as with any good burger place, their fries are delicious too.

These guys have mostly beef options, and couple of vegan; alleviates your dilemma of choices, elevates your burger experience.
You have to choose your toppings. They also have two preset ones – the “original” and the “messy” – but I decided to make my own. The elevation burger made with tomatoes, lettuce, the elevation sauce and pickles is what I had.
The good thing is that the sauce doesn’t overpower the taste of the patty which some might consider as a lack of flavour.

But at the same time you can get the flavour of everything that’s in there. Service does get a bit slow if there are too many customers. Spacious interior with ample lighting. And yes, there’s a hefty price tag to it.
