The Potato Bun Burger at IZU Burger
Chef Izu, the acclaimed talent behind popular Dubai restaurants GAIA and Carine, has introduced a curated menu of burgers on Deliveroo. The menu includes the Potato Bun Burger, made with a choice of Australian Wagyu Beef or 150-day grain-fed Canadian Beef and is topped with melted Emmental Swiss Cheese, signature sauce and a soft Potato Bun to soak up the juices. However, don’t sleep on the Izu Fries, which offer thick wedges of potato with a crisp skin and fluffy consistency that come drizzled with a spicy sauce and topped with shavings of fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano and mixed spices.

The Secret Menu Burger at Miss Lily’s Dubai
We all love a secret menu item and this Jamaican hotspot at Sheraton Grand Dubai features a burger that’s only available to those in the know. Only available in limited quantities each night, this burger includes a double beef patty, Cheddar cheese, Miss Lily’s burger sauce, cucumber escovitch and red onions and comes served in a brioche bun and accompanied by fiery jerk fries. If you’d prefer poultry rather than beef, a crispy chicken sandwich is also available.
