One-off burger challenge coming to Dubai

Big bites heading to JBR over the Eid al-Adha weekend

Fancy a big bite over the Eid al-Adha weekend? This ominously named and imperiously constructed beast is almost certain to leave you reclining into a carb and meat-induced kip.

On Thursday August 31 you’ll find The Jawbreaker available at Wavebreaker Beach Bar & Grill at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah in JBR, and its name is fairly descriptive. Two kilograms of beef patties are topped with beef bacon, cheese, onions, guacamole and an array of condiments; and, in typical Dubai fashion the burger comes with the (optional) incentive of turning it into a challenge.

Finish the burger and the accompanying soft drink within 30 minutes, and your limited-edition, two kilogram burger will be absolutely free of charge. Fail to finish it in your half-an-hour time slot, and it’ll set you back Dhs99.

For those with a slightly less hefty appetite can also opt for the burger platter with a soft drink for Dhs69. For your money you’ll get four sliders, including beef, chicken, Welsh lamb and a sweet potato rosti burger for veggies. Sadly, there’s no competitive element for the sliders, so you’ll just have to stump up the cash.

We recently gave one of Dubai’s biggest burger challenges a go, and it didn’t go quite as well as we’d hoped. You can find out how it went for us when we took on the McGettigan’s JLT Burger Challenge.

Dhs99. Thu Aug 31, noon-10.30pm. Wavebreaker Beach Bar & Grill, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, JBR (04 318 2582).
