It’s a harrowing choice to have to make on a Saturday afternoon. Do you go for a full roast dinner with all the trimmings, or opt for a big juicy burger?

The impossible choice has just been made possible. London-inspired gastropub The Black Lion has decided to combine the two, and serve a classic roast dinner inside two pieces of freshly baked focaccia bread.

The delicious creation is filled with rare roast beef, veal bacon, a cauliflower cheese fritter and kale. We know what you’re thinking – “Where are the roast potatoes? It’s not a roast without roast potatoes.” Everybody calm down, it’s going to be okay. The focaccia bread is actually made with roast potatoes (we didn’t know that was possible either, but there you go).

There’s even horseradish sauce, bone marrow gravy, roast carrots and parsnips on the side.

General Manager, Rebecca Warrener, says: “We’ve created something that is unlike anything else on offer in Dubai. We knew that we wanted something that would capture people’s attention and was inspired by some of the best food that Britain has to offer.  The Roast Burger is the ultimate comfort food for people looking to truly indulge in good old hearty British food with a twist.”  

You can get your hands on the roast burger every Saturday and Sunday from 11.30am – 11.30pm. A single stack of 150g is AED65, or the ultimate double stack of 300g is AED125.
