Enjoy a fancy burger during Abu Dhabi Showdown Week

Five posh burgers to try in Abu Dhabi this week

Abu Dhabi Showdown Week is here and there's loads to be excited about.

There's a massive UFC event and two huge concerts by Red Hot Chili Peppers and J Balvin taking place at the all-new purpose-built arena on Yas Island.

You may have even read about the happy hours and parties taking place across the city, as well as all the fitness events you can sign up for and watch.

But there's also loads more going on across the capital, and we're particularly excited for the Knockout Burgers part of Showdown Week.

We've teamed up with the organisers and more than 35 bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants to bring you some incredible burger deals.

Feeling fancy? Here are five posh burgers to try in Abu Dhabi this week. 


With this deal you can enjoy a loaded wagyu burger and parmesan fries for less than Dhs90. The 200g patty is layered with loads of delicious toppings, including maple bacon, fried eggs, potato crisps, lettuce, truffle carpaccio, tomatoes and cheese. It’s looks and sounds beyond incredible.
Dhs89. The Galleria, Al Maryah Island (02 626 2131).

Oak Room

This cool steakhouse has come up with a super deal for Showdown Week. For Dhs100 you’ll get the Oak Room burger (topped with mustard mayonnaise, pickles, battered onion rings and smoked cheddar) and a bottle of the hotel chain’s own-brand hops. Brilliant.
Dhs100. The Abu Dhabi EDITION, Al Bateen (02 208 0000).


This upmarket restaurant has a perfect spot on Saadiyat Island. During Showdown Week you can get a grilled beef burger with turkey bacon, cheese, lettuce, mayonnaise and sliced pickled beetroot plus a pint of hops for Dhs110. We reckon that’s worth heading out to the island for.
Dhs110. The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi (02 498 8888).

The Manhattan lounge

Head to this stylish lounge and pick up a super burger loaded with braised brisket, coleslaw, shallots, barbecue sauce, parsley and chives. It’s joined by a skewer of cherry tomatoes and gherkins, plus a bottle of hops for less than Dhs100.
Dhs95. The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi (02 498 8443).


Head to Stills on Yas Island to get your hands on its Signature Wagyu Burger for Dhs99, instead of the usual Dhs135. This hearty handful features a 100 percent wagyu patty, grilled onions, mushrooms, country-aged cheddar, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo and ketchup, all wedged within a soft, sesame bun. Bosh.
Dhs99. Crowne Plaza Yas Island (02 656 3066).
