In its long and colourful history on the Dubai culinary scene, nobody has ever gone to Fibber’s looking for fine dining and a subtly-flavoured amuse-bouche. This is a venue that proudly serves up proper pub grub such as fish and chips, all-day breakfasts, pies and burgers. That said, the enormous menu even stretches to quinoa salad and a passion fruit brûlée, but you’re best of sticking to the staples. Portions are huge, especially with the steak and mushroom pie, which features chunky lumps of meat in a rich gravy under a puff pastry topping. The cheeseburger, meanwhile, puts its rivals around the city to shame through its size. While Fibber Magee’s might not be the most stylish destination in town, if you’re coming for the football, quiz night or just drinks, you shouldn’t feel the need to eat anywhere else.
Open daily 8am-2am. Behind Saeed Tower One, Sheikh Zayed Road, (04 332 3100).
