RIPE MARKET – DUBAI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Every Friday morning Ripe will host their market from 9:00 AM till 2:00 PM at Zaabeel Park (Gate 1). You will find fresh organic fruits, vegetables, local food stalls, mini version of restaurants, crafts, fun activities for the kids, live music and many more! ATM machines are available this year too. The majority of the places have reasonable pricing. There are different types of seating areas and since it is in a park it would be a fun picnic experience. I would recommend you visit the Ripe Market early as it gets VERY crowded and it would be difficult to find a parking spot (We parked in the sand pit across Gate 1!). You should definitely check this place out as it is only for a period of time. There is a clear improvement from last year.

Lemonade (10 DHS each) :

KRUSH BURGER – DUBAI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I think I am the last person in Dubai to try Krush Burger!

This joint has a short menu with 4 burger choices, french fries or sweet potato tots, milkshakes and soft drinks. You could order the two mini burgers as a combo with a side (46 DHS). And you can refill your soft drinks. The bill came out to be 104 DHS (for 2 people).

This was our meal, they would put everything in a tray but it looked SO good.

French Fries & Sweet Potato Tots :
The french fries was crispy from the outside but soft from the inside, just how I like them! The sweet potato tots was something different than the usual. But I am not sure how well it goes with the burgers. Would definitely go for french fries only next time!
krush2

Original & Philly :
The original consisted of grilled onion, lettuce, tomato, american cheese & house sauce. The Philly consisted of grilled mushrooms and onions, aged provolone, & red pepper aioli.

Buffalo Chicken & Cowbell :
The Buffalo Chicken was by far my favorite. If you enjoy something spicy then this is the burger for you. Cowbell had beef bacon, crispy onions, smoked gouda & BBQ sauce.

Personally, I would recommend a person to try the Buffalo Chicken & Cowbell with french fries. Things might get messy because their burgers are saucy.

Details :
Opening Hours : Sun-Sat 11:00AM – 10:00PM
Location : Between Murooj Rotana and Cafe2go, financial centre road.

SMASH BURGER – KSA

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Burger joints are popping out all around ! I for one judge a burger place by the quality of their bread, chicken/meat and fries! I tried this place called Smash Burger that opened up in Saudi Arabia. The bread was really good. The burgers were not heavy at all, and you can finish a whole burger without feeling bloated. The ingredients were fresh. You had to order everything individually.

Here is what we had:
(SR = Saudi Reyal)

SAUDI SMASH CHICKEN (32 SR)
This burger includes chedder cheese, tomato, red onion, leaf lettuce, pickles and garlic sauce on egg bread.
smash1

CLASSIC W/ CHEESE ( 28 SR )
This burger includes american cheese, ketchup, leaf lettuce, tomato slices, red onion, pickles and smash sauce on egg bun.
smash2

BBQ, CRISPY BEEF, CHEDDAR ( 32 SR )
This burger includes bbq sauce, crispy beef, cheddar cheese and haystack onions on egg bun.
smash3

SWEET POTATO SMASHFRIES ( 10 SR )
Which was deep fried (defies the reason why people order it in the first place!) But was good!
