Living right across Citywalk Dubai has it’s perks – great location but not so great for my waistline especially when awesome food venues like the Burger Joint New York tempt the taste buds every time I pop out to get the groceries or to have my nails done.
Burger Joint New York, right next to the delectable Hummingbird Bakery, serves up classic, no fuss burgers. I went there with a group of friends and my little diva who gets excited about burgers since we hardly ever let her eat junk food.
The interior of the restaurant is very New York with a simple chilled out ambience, tables and walls covered in graffiti and big jars of pickles on display. Upstairs there is an outdoor terrace with better views of the Dubai skyline and Burj Khalifa than my bedroom across the road.
The staff handed part of a cardboard box with the menu on it and we could choose a regular or cheese burger and let them know how we wanted it cooked and what we wanted with it – The choice was lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickle, mayo, mustard and ketchup and if we wanted fires to go with it.
The quality of burger I had was superb and the fries were crispy served in a cute bag placed in a tray – very simple and practical.
The best part was the Brownie – it was warm and delightful and I did not share one bite with Little diva who seemed content with her own piece. Once full, we both took marker pens and ensured the world knew we were there.
