Meet the Best Burger Spots in UAE
A celebration of indulgent self-expression

17 November, 2021, United Arab Emirates: Already a hit with UAE Royals, Adrift Burger Bar at Expo 2020 Dubai by Chef David Myers commemorates the country’s 50th National Day in decadent fashion with the launch of a new exclusive burger. Originally launched at the brand’s Venice Beach pop-up earlier this year as the ‘Bentley Burger’, the opulent reinvention of David Myers’ legendary burger recipe takes classic Americana comfort food to another level by adding lashings of luxe to it. Aptly named the ‘24K Burger’ to reflect the 50th Jubilee celebration of the UAE, the burger comes complete with two 5oz US wagyu beef patties, Italian truffle Taleggio cheese, lettuce and onion slaw, freshly shaved black truffle, Oscietra caviar, and truffle aioli served on a lightly toasted brioche bun wrapped in gold leaf.


Michelin-rated Chef David Myers comments: “It is mind-blowing what this country has achieved in just five decades. I have been coming to the UAE for almost five years now and this place never ceases to amaze me with its ever-evolving cityscape, future-focused innovations and warm hospitality. Of course I wanted to mark its 50th anniversary with something that our guests at Adrift Burger Bar will hopefully appreciate, but that also celebrates the grandness of what the Jubilee truly means.”

Besides the addition of the 24K Burger to the menu, Adrift Burger Bar is also introducing two equally luxe sidekicks to its menu; Fried Truffle Cheese Balls and Tater Tots with Caviar.


The 24K Burger will be available for AED 495 at Adrift Burger Bar at Expo 2020 Dubai as of the 2nd December.

Internationally lauded Chef-Restaurateur David Myers — one of California’s most luminary chefs synonymous with LA’s Golden Age and the heyday of fine dining in the early 2000’s — returned to his roots in Los Angeles in 2020, opening his first stateside concept in several years with ADRIFT Burger Bar. Myers honed his culinary skills under celebrated chefs including Daniel Boulud and Charlie Trotter prior to opening his own restaurants in Los Angeles with Michelin-starred Sona, Hinoki & The Bird, and Comme Ҫa in West Hollywood. At Comme Ҫa, Myers introduced his now-legendary burger, deemed ‘perfect’ by The New York Times in 2009. Since embarking on a culinary journey around the world, Myers has gained global recognition with concepts in Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Dubai. His previous culinary endeavors in Dubai gained him the Chef of the Year award from Esquire Middle East alongside recognitions by the likes of BBC Good Food, FACT Magazine and Condé Nast Traveller.

A global citizen first and foremost, Myers is renowned for marrying his two greatest passions – food and travel – in every concept he creates. His commitment to creativity, harmony, and perfection in the kitchen has led to recognition from some of the world’s most distinguished critics, resulting in a slew of accolades, from Food & Wine’s ‘Best New Chef’ to Esquire’s ‘Chef of the Year’ award.
