If nothing else, having four burgers from four different venues in as many days helps with objectivity. And having just finished my fourth, the BBQ ShackMeister at Shake Shack’s newly opened branch at Deira City Centre, I am reminded why I am a fan – it’s amazing. The BBQ ShackMeister is basically a cheeseburger loaded with crispy fried shallots and topped with BBQ sauce, it’s hard to fault. My daughter had a double cheeseburger…which remains one of my reference burgers in Dubai and better (in my humble opinion) than some excellent burgers I recently tried from The Bucher, Sausage Fabrique and Ugly Burger.
Shake Shack City Centre is located at the entrance of the Level 1 Food Court on the Carrefour side of the mall. Service is typical big smile “have a nice day” and as sharp and prompt as I remember. A sign of the times – this new branch is equipped with a novel handwash station which looked something like what my generation watched in sci-fi movies not too long ago. It allows you to wash your hands before and after your meal without any contact whatsoever with the unit itself. So, there you have it, Shake Shack’s new outlet in Deira City Centre…serving some of the best burgers in the business and well worth a detour.
