DINING

BURGER AND LOBSTER There is no menu at this new DIFC spot but the name of the restaurant pretty much says it all. You can order burgers, lobster rolls or steamed lobster. An option for those torn between the choice of three is to order all of the above to share between two. In the lobster roll, imported Canadian lobster is lightly dressed with mayonnaise before being sandwiched between griddled halves of a buttery brioche bun. The burger, made with all meat and no

fillers, has a wonderful umami quality, the probable result of the restaurant’s rumoured use of Asian fish sauce in the seasoning. Dessert choices are equally lean, if not in actual caloric content. The lemon cheesecake and the tres leches both provide a soothing ending to this post-work comfort meal. Burj Daman Building, DIFC +971 4 514 8838
