Restaurant Review: Urban Bistro, Dubai Media City
INFO: CNN Building, Dubai Media City, 04 362 4330, www.urbanbistro.ae.
I’m a burger fan, no doubt about it, and there’s an incredible range to be sampled in the UAE, with everything from foie gras toppings to good ol’ processed cheese. I’ve found a new favourite that is my happy medium between the pretentious and pricey (albeit tasty) and the cheap and cheerful (but somewhat greasy). It’s called Urban Bistro and is the latest addition to Dubai Media City’s dining scene. When I walked in, I spotted the burgers on every second table and just knew I had to get involved. I opted for the medium-cooked, wagyu burger with caramelised onions, cheese and avocado salsa. It was all kinds of good! The beef was top quality and super juicy with a soft texture, while each of the toppings worked well to create a well-balanced mouthful with sweet onions and a cheesy bite. The bread was soft and not too doughy to detract from the meat and it stayed intact until the last bite. If you’re going to treat yourself to a burger indulgence, this is a must-try! They’ve also got a breakfast menu with dishes like salmon eggs Benedict, and you can grab sandwiches and salads to go.
