The All Black Burger

Dhs85 The next time you visit Bridge­wa­ter Tavern, ask to see the ‘BWT Signature All Black’ menu. You’ll find a few fun op­tions on the list such as black wasabi shrimp and black truf­fle mac and cheese, but we sug­gest you go there hun­gry and or­der the mighty black burger (Dhs85). Don your black la­tex gloves (they come with the burger – yes, re­ally) and feast on a juicy patty, made from Wagyu and Aus­tralian An­gus beef, that’s lay­ered with two slices of aged ched­dar, crispy maple-glazed veal ba­con, spiced onion jam and bar­be­cue sauce, all en­cased in a black sweet brioche bun. The baps, baked in-house at the JW Mar­riott Mar­quis Dubai every morn­ing, are stained with a nat­u­ral char­coal colourant to cre­ate that gothic look. It’s one huge, juicy mess of a burger that tastes as epic as it looks.

Mar­riott Mar­quis Dubai, Busi­ness Bay, Dubai, daily 4pm to 2am. Tel: (04) 4143000. Taxi: JW Mar­riott Mar­quis. jw­mar­riottmar­quis­dubail­ife.com

Prawn salad with black sea­weed

Trust DusitD2 Kenz Ho­tel’s quirky new Thai restau­rant Wise Kwai to cre­ate a few un­usual dishes to spice up their menu.

black sea­weed. They look like sul­try sushi rolls and, thank­fully, taste just as good.
