Meet Meat Me There Dubai, the humorously titled ‘burger shop’ that sells one of UAE’s best hidden burgers. Tucked away in the idyllic setting of Al Souq Mall, Jumeirah Beach Road, homegrown concept Meat Me There is the latest brainchild of the sisters behind The Pizza Factory, Iranian foodie entrepreneurs Sophia and Sogol Yaraghi. Open daily from 12-12, Meat Me There Dubai first opened its doors in August 2014 and has been a secret, hidden gem spot for Dubai’s foodies, who learn of its incredible burgers and flock to the (mostly) jam-packed eatery.
So let’s get to the important bit: How does it taste? The Meat Me There Dubai burger is no ordinary, run of the mill burger. This burger is created out of pure black onyx, which is chilled and sent from Australia’s best supplier and farms. Purists will also be happy to learn that the meat is organic. There are just three burgers on offer: the ME burger (just salad and sauce), the Meat Me burger (cheese) or the Juicy Double burger (double patty with cheese). The fries are hand-cut fresh daily and available loaded, plain or with paprika for a little punch.
We’d give the burger here 9/10 and strongly advise heading over to Al Souq Mall stat to try it. The milkshakes are also really something else. This is cheat day heaven.
Insider tip: If the weather permits, sit outside and watch the world go by. If you’re in a rush, call in advance and arrange for a quick pick-up take-away.
