GOAAAALS: Tap Into 7 Of Dubai's Game-Changing Burgers

Diet who?

Black Tap

We ALL love our burgers. In fact, you could even say we have our own burger culture across the city. There’s no getting away from it and the hunt is always on for the next new burger-based creation.

We’ll we’re ahead of the game – we’ve found SEVEN of Dubai’s best craft burger creations whether you’re looking for a midday meal, a weekend binge feast, or you’re simply craving a juicy burger after work. Famous not just for their CrazyShake creations that are oh-so Instagrammable, this popular NYC cult burger brand is also the go-to for their award-winning craft burger creations.

P.S. Black Tap DOES NOT do BASIC burgers, you can expect to taste 200 grams worth of patty on ALL their burgers topped with potato buns. The meat is imported directly from the USA and is called the Greater Omaha USA Beef AND they use a tenderloin steak in the Filet Au Poivre burger.

1. The Gulf Burger

This NEW burger was launched FIRST in Dubai before being introduced in any of Black Tap’s global venues. Made with prime burger patty, the Gulf Burger is crafted to include region-specific ingredients including arugula, zaatar, marinated haloumi cheese, pesto mayo, sun-dried tomatoes, avocado AND parmesan cheese.

If you haven’t tried this yet – have you really lived?

Torn between ordering a tenderloin steak but also craving a burger? We’ve all had to make such tough decisions! Black Tap’s Filet Au Poivre takes away one tough choice giving you your tenderloin steak served in a burger-form – say WHAT NOW?!!

The Filet Au Poivre is made using a rich t-steak cut, layered with peppercorn sauce, frizzled onions and topped with either swiss or blue cheese.

A lot is at ‘steak’ here – you definitely want to try this at least once!

3. The Truffle Burger

Truffle is still IN. There’s no debating that and we’re definitely happy we still have truffle specials to choose from especially if it comes with a wagyu beef burger, smoked gouda, baby arugua AND packed with truffle-yuzu vinaigrette and black truffle mayo.

Truffle lovers – this leaves NOTHING to the imagination and everything you’ve ever wanted.

4. The Reuben Burger

If you're a little more on the focused, straight-to-the-core, double meat side of the burger preferences- this one might be for you.

The Reuben Burger is made with prime angus beef, and layered with beef pastrami, sauerkraut slicked pickles, swiss cheese AND a special sauce.

Pause – we need to wipe the drool off our faces just thinking about The Reuben.

5. The Pizza Burger

Vuoi la pizza? Well, look no more.

You know how we said Black Tap takes away some of the toughest decisions we have to make (food-wise)? You’ll never have to endure another round of debates again – pizza vs burger.

Black Tap's iconic new pizza burger gives you ALL the feels of a pizza AND a burger. This one of a kind creation includes a succulent burger patty, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, fried mozzarella and shaved parmesan.


Pair it with sweet potato fries and a cold, fizzy drink and this makes for THE perfect dinner.
