Yes, that’s right, it’s International Burger Day, a day I’m sure we all had marked on our calendars.
So today is as good a day as any to pay homage to one of the world’s most popular foods by highlighting five to try in Abu Dhabi.
The Arbab popped up all over social media when Burger 28 launched last year in Abu Dhabi and this chicken burger is worth trying for yourself. The panko-breaded fillet is topped with UAE favouite Chips Oman, a secret Arbab sauce, lettuce and jalepenos, all served in a potato bun. Visit: burger28.com
Serving up sustainable, organic and nasty-free ingredients, Bareburger takes pride in what goes into its food. With veggie, chicken, lamb and even camel options, visitors can make their own creation or pick one of the signature burgers. We recommend trying the standard one. Why? Because sometimes simple is best. Visit: bareburger.com
With branches in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, Graffiti Burger is no stranger to filling bellies in the UAE. With a range of fast food on offer including chicken burgers, we recommend trying the signature Graffiti burger that’s topped with American cheese, lettuce, onions and spicy signature sauce.
