Habibi Burger is a homegrown brand that specializes in the fusion of two gourmet favorites, burgers and mezze. So Habibi, being an Arabic word used to describe someone the speaker likes or loves was used to define their love for burgers and Arabic food.
Located on Dubai’s Marina Promenade, Habibi Burger offers a stunning terrace with panoramic views of Marina’s skyscrapers and the yachts as well. The restaurant’s interiors feature pastel colors and wood designs and when you enter, there is this warm welcoming feeling as if you’re in a place you already know.
Menu highlights are its range of four delicious 4oz burgers, all homemade, using prime Argentinian beef, and traditional mezze plates from fattoush to kibbeh.
We started with some grilled halloumi, fattoush, tabbouleh and sambousek beef. The appetizers were fresh and were obviously hot off the oven.
Then we ordered 3 different varieties of their burgers to be able to really have a taste of their specialty. I’m not a fan of the mushroom and blue cheese burger but I particularly liked The Works or the veal bacon and mushrooms burger. Every order comes with skin on fries and presented attractively.
They also have great tasting shakes and I particularly liked my one which is the blueberry because it tasted exactly how I wanted it to taste. We also ordered avocado and banana & popcorn. According to my friends, they were really good.
I can say that their prices are marginally affordable considering the location and the very accessible parking area. The staff are also helpful and knowledgeable about their products and are able to recommend what’s good and what’s best depending on your current mood or if you’re a vegetarian.
Habibi Burger successfully integrated a hint of the Arabic cuisine to the already loved burger. By doing so, you get a feeling of local style cooking but in a cozy and chilled atmosphere. I really like the concept and to be honest, they weren’t spectacular but it’s enough to make me come back to try some of their other offerings.
Habibi Burger is located beside the Lotus Hotel Apartments in Dubai Marina and you can easily park at the basement.
