Firebird Diner offers burger with foie gras, black truffle aioli to celebrate International Burger Day on May 28
One of Dubai's most-talked new openings is to offer a special AED500 ($136) burger this month to celebrate what is the National Burger Day in both the US and Australia.
Firebird Diner's Burger Khalifa is part of the DIFC restaurant's Burger Domination Week, and is almost certain to be lighting up your Instagram feeds between May 22-28.
Also on the menu that week are the 'All American Slider', 'Down South Dirty Bird', 'The Big Tex' and 'Arabian Burger'.
The signature item justifies its eye-watering price tag by being loaded with two prime USDA Beef Patties, a Maine Lobster Tail, seared foie gras, black truffle aioli, and a sunny side egg.
The more manageable items on the menu - both financially (prices range from AED50 to AED120), and in the sense you can actually get your hands around them - are:
All American Slider: Creekstone Beef patty, onion marmelade and a secret sauce
Down South Dirty Bird: Chicken Andouille patty, pickled green tomatoes, Cajun remoulade
The Big Tex: Beef patty, five alarm chili, pickled jalapenos, cheddar
Arabian Burger: Spiced Lamb patty, harissa tomato ragu, charred eggplant spread, grilled halloumi
Firebird Diner is the brainchild of celebrity chef Michael Mina and located at newly-opened Four Seasons Hotel DIFC.
It comes with all the high-standards of the chef's of other outlets, including a self-titled spot, Bourbon Steak and RN74. It is designed by the famous American interior designer Adam Tihany, and comes with high-end touches on a traditional American diner scene, including booth style seating.For all the latest gourmet news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
