Stuff your face with one of these AM-appropriate burgers this weekend…

Tom and Serg’s breakfast bap bun is a thing of beauty, piled high with folded eggs, crisp bacon, avocado and a hash brown, then brought to life with Korean chilli jam and pickled jalapenos. It’s Dhs59 (extra for bacon). This weekend, they’re also pumping out a brekkie sausage muffin that looks insanely good, layered with beef sausage, cheese, caramelised onion and salady bits.

Certainly the fanciest breakfast burger on our round-up, the scrambled egg bun at TBK takes pillow-soft eggs, a light dusting of grated parmesan, snipped chives and chopped chilli, then arranges it all in a lightly grilled brioche bun. Pure class.

Fibber Magee’s

The sturdy breakfast bap at Fibbers is a go-to for the Downtown office crowd when they’ve imbibed a little too much the night before. Go all out with the big breakfast bap, bearing real bacon and sausage, fried egg, black or white pudding and tomato in a flour-dusted bun (Dhs39), or create your preferred combination of egg, bacon or sausage, or all three (Dhs20 to Dhs35)

Fibber Magee’s, Sheikh Zayed Rd, behind Saeed Tower 1, daily from 8am. Tel: (04) 33 22 400. @fibbermageesdxb

Perry & Blackwelder

For those who like a late start, head Perry & Blackwelder at Souk Madinat from noon. To create their all-day breakfast bap, the chefs take a soft floury bun and pack it with Cumberland sausage, sweet cured back bacon and a fried egg, for Dhs69.
