If you find yourself feeling a bit peckish while running errands in the Mall of the Emirates, swing by Le Burger in the boujie food court (Kempinski side). This Austrian brand has made its first foray into the international market with this location and frankly, we’re delighted they chose Dubai.
Le Burger is everything a burger place should be. It’s gorgeously spacious and the interior seems to buffer the sound of the mall. Fresh features include a lush handwashing station, a semi-private seating area for a larger group, swing chairs in the outside seating area, and a gorgeous purple wingback that I contemplated trying to take on my way out.
The food is splendid – simple, flavourful, and made with quality ingredients at, and this is an important bit, a price point that is really, really reasonable. These unpretentious burgers, of which there are over 2,000 combinations, are easily some of the best in Dubai.
Le Burger’s dessert offerings are nothing short of sublime – a bold statement, and we stand by it. One of the kindest things you can do for yourself is order the Saffron Oriental, arguably one of the most decadent shakes on the market – honey saffron ice cream topped with pistachios and honey. If you prefer something a bit more classic, their baked cheesecake is the perfect way to round off any meal – smooth and creamy, but light enough not to leave you feeling too full.
Let’s talk novelties…
