5. She Burger
When it comes to burgers, She Burger keeps it simple, but isn't that sometimes exactly what we need? Their chicken is breaded in a batter made of laban, which gives the burger flavor and keeps it crunchy while stopping it from drying out. It's then sandwiched in a freshly prepared on-site bun and topped with lettuce, tomato, American cheese, and Sante Fe sauce. The end result is seriously tasty, with a spicy edge that will warm your belly without setting it on fire - the perfect medium, in our opinion. The menu offers a variety of chicken dishes, including classic chicken, Buffalo chicken, Hell's chicken (a chicken sando in the Nashville style), and more. For fish fans, there's a'shark' bite burger made with a crispy fish fillet, and for vegetarians, there's a veggie burger with a soya chunk pattie. She Burger is a low-key spot and one of the top burger spots in Dubai.
