You don’t need us to tell you Dubai is big on burgers. We’ve seen the world’s most expensive burger, we’ve got fast food chains coming out of our ears and now there’s a brand-new burger joint joining the ranks on Jumeirah Beach Road.

Though it opened for delivery only at the end of 2017, Bun Fight is now open for dine-in two nights a week, and is showing off a seriously funky look.
With interiors that look pulled from the most rainbow-hued of Instagram accounts, replete with candy-pink flamingos and shouty slogans, it’s almost enough to draw your attention away from the burgers.

Its menu pits Turf against Surf, choose from massive burgers made with beef, chicken or seafood (think shrimp and lobster), including a massive Fondue Flip ’N’ Dip Burger (think masses of raclette), as seen below.
But that’s not all. Every burger comes with an enormous bowl of dipping sauce, with three to choose from – French beef gravy, avocado and buttermilk, and béarnaise sauce – though each sandwich is served with its recommended pairing. (Marry that beef gravy with Baja fish tacos at your peril.)

Sides include pretzel-coated halloumi fries (clearly Dubai’s snack du jour), re-loaded fries (cheese, garlic mayo, rosemary salt and an optional fried egg) and “dirty dollars and poppers” – a medley of fried pickles and stuffed jalapeños, served with smoky chipotle dip.

Be sure to save room for the mammoth Dessurger – a half dessert, half burger heavyweight comprised of vanilla and pistachio parfait patty dipped in white chocolate, plus Lotus biscuit caramel sauce, all wedged within a toasted brioche bun.
