Chef Express

Startlingly good burger joint to try

Chef Express
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010
It’s easy to assume anyone can make a good burger. Sadly, this is rarely the case. Even the most promising places can dish out overcooked meat, tough or overly bready buns, or unimaginative accoutrements. The list of what can go wrong is unending. That’s why finding a good, trustworthy burger joint is such a treat, and Chef Express is one such place. When the weather is nice, it’s worth making a stop just to sit in the al-fresco area outside, which is carefully decorated with fairy lights and pot plants. Though there’s a range of delicious meat options, we’re fond of the barbecue ranch burger, which comes cooked perfectly to order and topped with smoky bits of turkey bacon and a crispy onion ring. The carrot cake dessert makes a perfect end: the slice is moist and the cream cheese frosting delightfully silken and sweetened to perfection. The icing on the cake is the large range of inexpensive shisha at Dhs25 per pipe. Chef Express

    ive been living in international city for almost 1 and a half year. one of the main issues i used to face is to find a good and clean restaurant. one day while driving in international city ive seen the chef express and the name attracted me. so i decided to and check it. so i was like finally there is 1 good restaurant in the town. food was simply amazing delicious, amazing and tasty specially the burger. even during last Ramadan the if tar buffer was really perfect comparing with the value of the money that i had to pay. let me add that i had a good experience as well and it comes to delivery!! they are the fastest in this earth.

    guys i do recommend the chef salad with thousand island dressing! its simply great!!!!
