Just 5 more reasons to enjoy your favourite burger…

Tomorrow, May 28 is International Burger Day. If you’re a fan of the patty and bun, this list is for you, because there’s very little a good burger can’t fix.

Here are 5 of the best burgers in Abu Dhabi.

Beau Restaurant

Chef Vincent Le Moal has arrived at Abu Dhabi’s Marina Mall, and he’s taking the capital’s burger scene by storm with bun-and-patty creations like you’ve never tasted. This exciting concept arrives in Abu Dhabi after a successful year in Dubai, and with its minimalistic design and hotel-inspired interiors, you’ll check in to what is certain to be an irreplicable burger experience. Tender patties, beautiful brioche and melt-in-the-mouth potato pulp fries are only a few incredible dishes you’ll be introduced to here…
