One of our favourite burger joints in Dubai never fails to impress with its over-the-top dishes, but now we’re getting a whole new batch of grub to get, fittingly, bananas about.

New York-inspired venue Black Tap has just launched a brand-new menu, featuring mega new editions to its burger, CrazyShakes and taco menu.

First off, foodies can dig into six new burgers including “The Gulf Burger” featuring Black Tap’s prime Greater Omaha USA beef burger stacked with arugula, zaatar, marinated halloumi cheese, pesto mayo, sun dried tomatoes, avocado and parmesan cheese. How do they pack all that in two buns?

There’s also the “Truffle Burger” a wagyu steak patty topped with black truffle mayo, the “Filet au Poivre Burger”, which boasts a tenderloin steak piled high with peppercorn sauce, frizzled onions and swiss cheese or blue cheese.

The final three include the “Pizza Burger”, “Chili Cheese Burger” and “Reuben Burger." Add them up and Black Tap’s gourmet burger count now stands at 17. Fabulous.

As for the CrazyShakes, customers can get their hands on “The Crazy Banana,” stacked with a Nutella-frosted rim, topped with crushed pretzels, a fried banana, white Kinder Bueno chocolate, whipped cream, chocolate chips and chocolate caramel drizzle.

The other newbie includes “The New Yorker,” a strawberry-flavoured shake featuring a vanilla-frosted rim with crushed Graham crackers, topped with a strawberry cheesecake slice, whipped cream, strawberry sauce drizzle and a cherry on top.

Fan of tacos? There’s two new offerings to try, including the Carne Asada with marinated steak, pico de gallo, caramelised onions and roasted tomato salsa, while the Shrimp taco, which is topped with Mexican hot sauce and served with cabbage, avocado and corn also looks very appealing.

Breakfast is also now available at Black Tap’s JBR branch between 9am and 2pm.

You can chomp on all the new additions at three of Black Tap's venues across Dubai, including Rixos Premium JBR, Jumeirah Al Naseem and the InterContinental Dubai Festival City.

Make sure you arrive with an empty stomach!
