In each of our Atlantis visit I always tell Coy that they should open a less intimidating restaurant. A casual place where guests can sit down and order a familiar dish without worrying if they are wearing the right clothes. The newly opened “the burger joint” might be the answer to my wish.
I remember Chef Sasha saying that they wanted to bring something “American” in Atlantis which eventually led to the burger joint (tbj). Indeed a great addition to the family and nicely located near Aquaventure an area which is always crowded with guests.
I absolutely love tbj’s interior with beautiful black and white photos and guests can even write on the white walls.tbj team prepared mini burgers for us to try on. I wasn’t too eager to try some burger since I still had a steak hungover from Seafire (and secretly wishing that I left the meat haven with a plate of yummy steaks mmmm…) but I’m looking forward to tasting their homemade style fries.
I tried three kinds of burger “cheesy,” “rooster booster” and “the works” out of the five choices tbj has to offer. I find cheesy the best among the three but then we had baby burgers it would be unfair to judge them right? I have to try the adult burgers and then decide whether I’ve found the best burger in Dubai that would beat my favorite Brothers Burger back home. The fries are just yummy crispy thin on the outside and soft inside. Unlike other fries where it seems to be empty inside, tbj fries have real potato feel in every bite.
tbj definitely is the answer to my no fuss dining wish in Atlantis but it’s still not cheap with burger priced at 40dhs – 60dhs and if you want some fries (which you should) add 15dhs, which is roughly around 700 pesos.
