Burger & Lobster Dubai
We love the eccentric yet upscale diner vibe at this bustling family-friendly eatery. Decked out with hanging rustic lighting and comfy red leather banquette seating, it’s a place where you feel instantly comfortable. The open kitchen is a focal point where you can watch your meal being cooked and the surrounding bricked wall art from local Arabic artists line the walls in tandem with the brand’s signature cartoons.
You know how food in Dubai can differ from its international outposts? Not here. The recipes and ingredients used worldwide are exactly the same. The lobsters are air-freighted to Dubai and used within three days of being caught, including their ‘Big Boys’, which are jumbo lobsters (the largest seen at this outlet weighed 15.4lb!) that can only be found here in Dubai.
With just three main dishes on the menu, you won’t have to umm and aah for too long. Choose between the burger, grilled or steamed lobster with either clarified butter or lemon and garlic butter, or opt for our personal fave, the lobster roll, which is served in a warm toasted brioche bun.
Your personal pleasure is a major factor here and that gives it the edge. With a happy hour on offer every day of the week (timings vary, so check for the day you’d like to visit) and the latest sporting action available on-screen at your request, it’s no wonder that this is one of Dubai’s favourite hangouts.
