FOOD & DRINKS
The hamburger is a staple of the culinary world and for some is a sacred thing that should remain untainted, to others it is the chance to show a creative side of the dish. Thursday, August 23rd signals Hamburger Day worldwide and Dubai Night has formed a (well researched) list of where to partake in one of the best days of the year…
BREAD STREET KITCHEN @ THE ATLANTIS, THE PALM
To mark the occasion of hamburger day British eatery Bread Street Kitchen has unveiled the limited-edition Jalapeno Popper Burger, priced at AED100 it is comprised of a juicy beef patty, classic braised beef short rib, jalapeño poppers and coriander mayonnaise to cool those taste buds. There will also be other burgers on the menu, but the spicy number is one to relish.
BLAZE BURGERS @ THE WALK, JUMEIRAH BEACH RESIDENCE
If you are looking to get in on the action this Hamburger Day but are short of time why not check out Blaze Burgers. Starting in Bahrain in 2011, this fully customisable burger joint really knows a thing or two about crafting a tasty burger. They also have a huge selection of sauces, dips and relishes for your burger. The artwork and décor is also pretty cool too.
BLACK TAP @ AL NASEEM & RIXOS PREMIUM JBR
Offering an impressive array of craft burgers, Black Tap has so much more to offer than just the humble burger. Boasting specialised version from around the world, Black Tap’s hops selection is only outshone by its milkshake offerings. Bring an empty stomach for a visit here.
3 FILS, JUMEIRAH FISHING HARBOUR

5 GUYS, VARIOUS LOCATIONS
If you are after a serious cheat day, look no further than American burger joint – 5 Guys. A firm favourite in Dubai, 5 Guys is consistently very good and is perhaps one of the most happy and positive working environments we have ever witnessed. Make August 23rdcheat day.
MOYLO’S BURGERS, JUMEIRAH BEACH ROAD
Taking pride in the freshness of their ingredients, Moylo’s Burgers are among one of a few burger joints to offer their own happy hour. Between Sunday and Friday, 11am – 4pm for only AED199 you will receive 10 sliders of your choice (beef or chicken) + 2 fries (plain, Parmesan Truffle or Hot Spring) for delivery or take away only. What a way to celebrate Hamburger Day.
COUQLEY FRENCH BISTRO, MOVENPICK HOTEL, JLT
If you are a fan of cheese, and let’s face who isn’t, the Raclette Burger will make you think that all your cheesy birthdays have come at once. For the lactose intolerant amongst you this is not to be truffled with.
SHAKE SHACK, VARIOUS LOCATIONS

ELEVATION BURGER, VARIOUS LOCATIONS
One of the cleanest burgers that we have come across is the fantastic Elevation Burger. Founder, Hans Hesswanted a burger that was healthier, that he would feel good about feeding his children and you can definitely taste the difference. The Elevation Burger is the perfect way to get your meat fix.
SOUTH ST. BURGER, MEDIA CITY
With legions of workers descending on the food outlets in Media City every day, Canadian South St. Burger is always packed out and rightly so.
