Burger Rebel

True to their name, the team at Burger Rebel like to flout the rules, plastering graffiti all over the walls of their restaurant and bringing innovative flavors to their menu. The Australian, for example, is an intriguing combination of pineapple, tomato, beetroot, cheese, fried egg, barbecue sauce, and a burger that is ground in-store from the finest grass-fed beef brisket and chuck steak. In their signature burger, sliced beef tongue is topped with homemade horseradish mayo and crispy onions. All of their buns are lightly grilled, which means each bite has a satisfying crunch.

More Café

A staple of Dubai’s culinary scene since its opening in 2002, this place has been voted the city’s best cafe. The build-your-own burger here has an original presentation, with the ingredients and condiments arranged on a four-tier stand. Diners select a beef patty or a slice of marinated chicken and then turn architect, adding to their creation cheese, mustard, lettuce, cucumber, caramelized onion, relish, mayo, ketchup, and dill sauce. More Café’s trademark corn-rye bread, used for their burger buns, is a welcome addition.

The Rivington Grill

The Rivington Grill provides a casual dining concept within an upscale environment, delivering the best of British cooking to Dubai. Their burger mix, minced in-house, is made up of aged beef (250-day grain-fed ribeye, sirloin and fillet, and 400-day Wagyu D-rump) as well as red onion, red chili, English mustard, and a range of other seasonings. Atop this succulent patty are piled pickles, applewood smoked cheddar, baby gem lettuce, plum tomato, Caprice club sauce, and mayonnaise. All of this is sandwiched between two lightly toasted buns, for that perfect structural integrity.
