Restaurant Review:
Engine Burger

Hor Al Anz

Burgers are something that we never need a break from and it’s always such a triumph to find one that ticks all the boxes. We recently had a tasting at a little burger restaurant in Dubai, Engine Burger, that serves up a variety of chicken, beef and shrimp burgers along with interesting sides and drinks in a no-frills, quirky setting. 
Here is everything we had:

  • Buffalo: Deep Fried Chicken, Melted Cheese, Red Cabbage, Lettuce, Jalapeno, Buffalo Sauce
  • Local: Deep Fried Chicken, Melted Cheese, Red Cabbage, Lettuce, Engine Classic Sauce, Topped With Chip Sticks
  • Super Charger: Deep Fried Fresh Shrimps, Melted Cheese, Lettuce, BBQ Sauce, Topped With Onion Rings
  • Volcano Fries Which Come With Buffalo Sauce, Red Kidney Beans, Green Onions, Jalapeno And Sour Cream
  • Blue Ocean Mojito
  • Chocolate Cookies Stuffed With Nutella
The winner was undisputed, we both absolutely loved the Super charger whether a seafood fan or not. The plump shrimps were flawlessly supplemented by the sauces, condiments and cheese. The burgers come in standard or full options and the full gets you a potato bun in lieu of a normal one. Two out of the three we had were potato buns and we still maintain that this bun gives burgers an edge over others. The chicken burgers were pretty great too with well-rounded, juice patties and full to the brim but they didn’t hold a candle to the super charger. The bright Mojito and volcano fries made for decent accompaniments to the mains. The other highlight of the meal were the Nutella filled cookies. Warm and of a lovely crunchy yet slightly soft texture, these ample cookies were an enjoyable finale to a tasty meal.

Engine burger with its funky yet minimal décor is the kind of burger place you’d visit for some honest burgers sans any exaggeration or over the top details. Great tasting burgers in an extremely casual little place is what Engine burgers is all about! Oh, and don’t forget to gorge on those Nutella cookies when you’re done with your meal.
