Sometimes the hunger for a burger strikes. And should you be in the Sheikh Zayed Road area when that happens, there's now a new place to check out.
Ministry of Burgers is now open in Crowne Plaza Dubai, and it promises to offer burger fans a wide selection of patties. The new spot boasts a menu with seven signature burgers that take inspiration from a variety of world cuisines.
Highlights include Italian Calzone Burger, which takes its shape from an oven-baked folded pizza, along with the Dawood Basha, inspired by the popular Arabic meatball dish of the same name.
There are burgers for vegetarians too, with options including the Quinoa Cake, prepared with a sizzling Cajun tortilla and quinoa patty, avocado sauce and sour cream.
If you’ve been aching to try out your own burger creation, Ministry of Burgers will give you that chance. Diners can build their own burgers, where they can select their favourite ingredients.
Choose from a list of different buns (chia seed and turmeric roll, sunflower bagel), patties (crunchy chicken, fish cake), sauces (sweet and sour, cheese fondue), extras (mozzarella, sauerkraut), and side dishes (croquettes, coleslaw et al) and get creative.
