Celebrate British National Burger Day At Bread Street Kitchen & Bar

Dubai’s favorite British eatery is serving up the perfect patty this August

From 26th to 30th August, Bread Street Kitchen & Bar invites Dubai’s burger buffs to celebrate one of the world’s culinary icons…The Burger. With three delicious buns on the menu for AED 135, patty professionals can indulge in the brie cheeseburger with wild mushrooms, the gruyere cheeseburger with veal bacon and avocado, or the BSK Wagyu burger…. a firm favourite and Gordon Ramsay signature dish.

Established six years ago in the UK, the best day of the year was invented to celebrate the iconic burger in all its glory. To this day, there continues to be a debate over who invented this oh so popular meaty dish, from Hamburg, Germany, to New Haven, Connecticut. Whatever the truth about the burger origin, this global dietary staple has stood the test of time!
