Restaurant Review:
Blaze Burgers

The Walk, JBR
​Dubai

When it comes to food in Dubai, there is no dearth of restaurants to satisfy any cravings. For instance, if you’re hit with hankerings for a good, juicy burger, you won’t have to rack your brain for the answer and will be spoilt for choice! If all this talk about burgers has got you longing for one, then this review is for you. A Bahraini brand, Blaze Burgers recently opened its cool, rustic doors at The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residences and we were invited to try out the funky restaurant that has a loyal fan following across the region.

Blaze Burgers boasts of jazzy interiors with massive colorful and eccentric murals adorning the walls of the restaurant. As if the burst of color wasn’t enough, the industrial décor with metallic piping (the cheeky, fun messages on one of the pipes left us chuckling) and quaint light bulbs lend an extra touch of coolness to the burger joint.

Moving on, it’s time to talk about the food! Blaze’s menu has been divided into different sections with a nice diversity of choices to make burger creation a cinch. Beginning with the meat, there are four types of beef options, one chicken and one vegetarian (mushrooms) after which you pick your toppings! With 12 options to choose from, toppings range from a simple, original version to spicier versions like the Heaven & Hell, The Barbarian, and Jalapeno Fever to country inspired versions like the Italian Job or the Chili Con Carne and even the option to build your own topping! Our group opted for the Gourmet Wagyu and Chicken burgers in brown buns and went to town with our choices for toppings. The healthier lot can choose lettuce leaves in lieu of buns while the ones willing to cheat can go for the 6Abooc-a burger aka the brick burger which lets you put your favorite topping on US certified Angus Beef that comes nestled between two grilled cheese sandwiches, yes you read that right! Pair your meal with the sides they have on offer, we chose the Cajun fries (mixed with Cajun spices) and the reloaded fries that come with melted cheese and coupled them with some delicious homemade dips! Once you place your order, you’re handed a shopping basket and sent to pick the sauces you’d like from a vast shelf. This would delight sauce, especially hot sauce aficionados!

The perfect complements to our massive meal came in the form of the drinks! We chose the colorful, Instagram worthy and refreshing to boot, Blaze on the beach and triple lime drinks and the extremely delicious and unique, signature dry shake (we chose the CHEESECAKE flavor) which doubles up as dessert as well! We couldn’t get enough of the dry shake, it was worth every last calorie.

Yes we had the dry shake but that didn’t deter us from getting some more dessert and honestly who would be able to resist the Blondie Cookie skillet once you spot it on the menu. Armed with chocolate and vanilla sauce, some gems and Hershey’s kisses and a Vanilla softie, this dessert came a close second to the Dry shake.

Overall, we give the quirkiness, originality and good food at Blaze Burgers a big thumbs up!
