Tired of the usual lunch break, together with some colleagues, we decided to escape the usual routine in Oud Metha and try something new. A colleague of mine proposed to drive to Trade Center area to Classic Burger Joint, “one of the best burger restaurant ever” he added trying to convince me.
I was told that the restaurant is incredibly popular in Lebanon, where the restaurant was firstly opened. Yes, you got it right, it isn’t the usual chain from the States by a pure Lebanese burger chain. I was curious to understand more about this Lebanese burger tradition that was totally unknown to me, hence we jumped in the car and drove to Aspin Commercial Tower on Sheikh Zayed Road, Trade Center Area, Dubai.
Keep in mind that Trade Center is very busy and it can be challenging to find parking just in front of the restaurant. We were lucky and found parking quite close to the place.
The restaurant is quite small and the waitress very friendly. Loving cheese on all forms, I went for a Mozzarella Classic Burger that consisted in a classic burger to which a thick layer of fried mozzarella is added on top of the beef patty. The burger arrived after 10 minutes as promised by the waitress together with a lot of french fries and a small portion of coleslaw.
The burger was extremely good. The fried mozzarella was melted at perfection, the beef patty of good quality and great taste and the little sauce added very light and enjoyable.
The fries were alright, nothing special, even though the person I was sharing the lunch with told me that usually they are very tasty and much better than what we got.
The coleslaw portion was too tiny to feel the taste of it.
The meal is enough to satisfy a very hungry person, so refrain from ordering too many things together. Enjoy the amazing burger first and then you might decide to add something else. At least, this is my advise 🙂
