If you're in one of those moods where only a great big hunk of meat will do, we've got you covered. Dubai is home to some of the most exciting and innovative restaurants on the planet and they are as passionate about their meat as you are.
Check out these five fantastic beef dishes from American-style specialities to Asian delights that will tantalise the taste buds and fill that gap in your stomach in equal measure.
1. Tender Skirt Steak at Cuisinero Uno, Downtown Dubai
If you're looking for a place that specialises in perfectly-cooked charcoal grilled steaks, Cuisinero Uno in the heart of Downtown Dubai is the place to be. Their skirt steaks are sliced generously and cooked exactly to your taste with a side of indulgent fries and a vibrant Chimichurri sauce that's the perfect complement to your beef as well as a good dipping sauce for those chunky chips.
2. Braised Beef Bourguignon at Fraiche, Jumeirah Lake Towers
Within the Jumeirah Lakes Towers you'll find this delectable bistro, serving delicious French-Canadian cuisine. Fraiche delivers all kinds of fresh bistro-style meaty fare, including a particularly luxurious braised beef bourguignon, which is crammed with melt-in-the-mouth, slow-cooked beef and a rich red wine jus. It's also served with delicious fresh mushrooms, carrots and creamy mashed potatoes – a really special homely dish.
3. Kickin' Cuban Mojo Sandwich at Friend's Avenue, Jumeirah Lake Towers
Looking for the perfect meaty lunchtime snack? Friend's Avenue delivers some remarkable sandwiches on butter-toasted sourdough. The Cuban Mojo Sandwich is our particular favourite, with a succulent Dijon mustard-marinated rib eye steak the real star of the show here. Combined with beef bacon, gherkins, cheese and an exclusive secret sauce all the way from Miami, it's a meaty sandwich that really packs a punch!
4. Blue Cheese Bacon Burger at Claw BBQ, Souk Al Bahar
If you're in and around Downtown Dubai and you're craving a thick, juicy American-style takeaway burger, we guarantee that Claw BBQ will leave you satisfied. With a wide selection of BBQ meats, speciality steaks and buckets of freshly grilled seafood, it's a very popular haunt for nights-in with friends when you feel like gorging and a genuine competitor of Gourmet Burger Kitchen. Our favourite Claw BBQ burger has to be the rich Blue Cheese Bacon Burger, complete with fresh veg and a tangy dill pickle that gets the party started in your mouth from bite one!
5. Aged Beef with Black Pepper Sauce at Royal China, D.I.F.C
For those with a hankering for Asian-style beef dishes, Royal China really excels here. Their Aged Beef with Black Pepper Sauce is one of the juiciest Chinese dishes we've enjoyed in Dubai, with every mouthful soft and full of flavour. It's a good complement to sweeter and spicier Chinese dishes if you're thinking of ordering a load of dishes for takeaway with friends or family.
