Time Out DXB

Feb 27th 2020

Year after year, European rugby’s elite international championship provides some edge-of-the-seat entertainment leaving fans’ nerves truly shredded.

As this year’s tournament comes towards its climax, Jack’s Bar & Grill, The Draft House and The Hangar are all serving up a beefy deal that’s an homage to those doing battle on the pitch.

For just Dhs150 you can grab a burger, chips and a pint, with each team having their own special patty meaning you can fly the flag for your home nation as you enjoy this feast of sporting action.

Evoking memories of those massive ploughman’s lunches you got back in Blighty, this beauty is topped with Branston pickle and stilton (for an added kick).

Always feared for their flair-filled game, The French are represented by toppings of melt-in-the-mouth brie and a delightful Dijon mustard mayo to give this burger that certain je ne sais quoi.

Massive favourites to take home the title this year, The Irish can celebrate early with this fine creation that comes with a Colcannon fritter and Irish cheddar.

The perennial Six Nations underdogs are always up for the fight and this burger layered with mozzarella and beef pepperoni is an absolute delight.

If you’re still smarting from that Calcutta Cup defeat to England then console yourself with this patty slathered in caraway and orange marmalade.

The defending champions have some of the most vocal fans and this offering topped with leeks and a Caerphilly mornay sauce will have your hearts singing. Each brilliant burger comes with their perfect match of caramelised onion, mustard mayo, gherkin, lettuce and tomato. And for the neutrals out there, The Chef’s Choice Burger is a special rugby ball-shaped patty that shows no bias at all…

Dhs150. Available until March 14 at Jack’s Bar & Grill (A-Gates, Terminal 3), The Draft House (Concourse D, Terminal 1) and The Hangar (Concourse B, Terminal 3).
