As American takeaway grows across Dubai, we're noticing a trend. American food is known for its all or nothing approach to food, which is why places like Burger and Lobster might be confusing – you go looking for a burger, but the outcome is a bellyful of lobster? In reality, though, there's nothing confusing about it at all – they know what they like in the USA and that's everything.
You'll often find seafood dishes on their menus and we're down with that in Dubai. After all, we're surrounded by water. Perhaps the most delicious delicacy in this range is the lobster. It's pretty fancy, meaning it's perfect for date night but equally it can be enjoyed in a simple pasta dish or a roll. Don't believe us? Just look at the way it pops up in the following amazing dishes.
1. Burger and Lobster – The Original Lobster Roll
One of the most popular items on the Burger and Lobster menu combines the love of stuffing meat into bread with good, old-fashioned lobster. Lobster meat – 60g of the stuff, to be precise – is served within not one but two rolls, tossed in Japanese mayo and sprinkled with chives for flavour. Of course, it wouldn't be a burger restaurant if the whole thing wasn't served with fries and salad, so that's exactly what you get. This one's popular, so catch it before it swims away!
2. Asha's Pyramids – Lobster Panchphoran
You want a whole lobster? You've come to the right place. This is the classic way to enjoy such a fine dish and Asha's Pyramids know it. They've perfected this speciality, allowing the lobster to simmer in five different spices before reaching your plate. Not only do you get the exquisite taste of fresh lobster but they actually also throw prawns and peppers into the mix. Get ready to dig into an absolute feast!
3. Joe's Crab Shack – Redfish 'N Lobster
The taste of lobster is distinct enough on its own but it also lends itself as the main flavouring in sauces, for dishes worthy of it. At Joe's Crab Shack, we think we've found exactly such a dish. Their seared redfish goes perfectly with a creamy lobster sauce, and it's then loaded with spinach, mushrooms and yet more lobster, so that you don't miss out on the best bit. Served with crab and rice... Honestly, does it get better than this?
4. Urban Seafood – Lobster Pasta
Can't decide between pasta and a more fishy dish? Why not have your lobster and eat it too? Urban Seafood have the solution here, with their deliciously more-ish Lobster Pasta. We know what you're thinking, but don't worry: this isn't some pasta dish swimming in a thin sauce with barely any meat. They lay a grilled fresh lobster onto a bed of Alfredo tagliatelle with cherry tomatoes and mushrooms. You get the best of both worlds – and yes, it's even topped with parmesan cheese!
Whether you're a long-time fan or you're learning to love it, put lobster on the menu tonight thanks to Deliveroo.
