Rib Meat Burger from The Meat Co [map]
Contributed by DeLaine D: Of Travels and Tales
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!
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.
Vegetarian Burgers at Nando’s [multiple outlets]

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!
Mushroom Melt and Chipotle Burger at Eggspectation [map]

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!

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.
