American tapas… Does the union of those two words excite you as much as it does us? Then you’re in the right place… Meet Slider Station Dubai, your cheat day soulmate. A genius Kuwaiti concept, Slider Station Dubai serves up the aforementioned American tapas, sliders, normal sized burgers, shakes, and more.
So back to American tapas. Think small (but by no means tiny) portions of some of the best naughty things America has ever created – like stuffing ‘tots’ with potatoes and cheese, and Lobster rolls, which are glazed with Sriracha at this little gem. The ‘Smoked Red Onion Rings’ are unlike any other onion ring we’ve tried before, they are delicate and addictive. The must-order from the American tapas selection has to be the Commando Fries – wow, are these something. There are some healthy options available also – with five huge salads to choose from, including a lovely kale and butternut squash number.
And for the main event – the burgers. Slider Station Dubai has seven sliders to choose from. We tried the Midnight (cheddar, shredded lettuce, mustard onions, pickles, West Coast sauce), Dangerous (buttermilk fried chicken, jack cheese, jalapeno, shredded lettuce, chimichurri aioli) and Tiger Shrimp Handgun (southern fried tiger shrimp, mango pepper slaw, mango habanero sauce, bamboo charcoal bun). We went back for a second order of the Midnight it was so good – simple, but stunning, one of the most perfect little burgers we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. If the sliders can’t tempt you there are also six normal sized burgers to choose from, including a camel burger (#wheninrome), and the signature SS Cheese Burger, which features a Ranger’s Valley black onyx beef patty, matured cheddar, onion strings and milk bun.
Insider tip: Opens at 1pm until 11pm. Go in a group and order an assortment of dishes to share – everything is amazing and demands to be tried. No reservations policy. Clear your schedule for after your visit… You are definitely going to need a nap.
