Premium burgers take centre stage at the new causal dining spot from social media sensation CZN Burak.
For the uninitiated, CZN Burak is a social media sensation who has gained unprecedented popularity in recent years. Known for his cheeky grin, XXXL food portions, and dining experiences anchored around theatrical presentations, the social media sensation has taken Dubai by storm.
Following six wildly successful restaurants in Turkey and the opening of his first UAE restaurant late last year, CZNBurak Burger is the latest culinary offering from chef Burak. Coming to Dubai from Dives Holding, CZNBurak Burger is the first of several planned openings across the GCC in the coming months.
Located on the lower ground floor of the world’s latest shopping centre, The Dubai Mall, CZNBurak Burger is easily identified thanks to vibrant signage and a smiling statue of chef Burak greeting diners at the entranceway. Indicative of a fast-casual dining concept, food is ordered at a counter before a handy buzzer is presented to customers, illuminating and vibrating once the food is ready.
The dining room is spacious and features an open show kitchen abuzz with activity as burgers are assembled in quick succession to keep up with the incessant customer demand. Grey industrial-style walls act as the ideal backdrop for the neon signs of burgers and Instagram illuminating the walls. Finally, an expansive al fresco terrace provides impressive views of The Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa, offering an ideal vantage point to enjoy the festivities during Dubai’s cooler months.
Offering tasty and filling food for those on the go or customers looking to take a break from shopping, CZNBurak Burger offers a range of tasty burgers, hot dogs and loaded fries. Flame-licked to perfection, only the finest Angus beef is used throughout the restaurant.
Served on silver trays, we can’t help but marvel at the quality and sheer enjoyment found in the signature Bu-Rock Burger (AED 68). A plump stuffed cheese Black Angus patty topped with tomato, pickles, bacon, fried onion and Burak sauce, sandwiched between soft potato buns. Paired with Cheezy Crispers (AED 32) and a glorious milkshake, it’s a tasty treat.
CZNBurak’s range includes burgers stuffed with mushroom or chicken, alongside The Giant Bite (AED 236), a gigantic 500g patty that must be cut like a cake and shared between families and groups of friends. Meanwhile, children will adore the CZN Kiddie Meals, which come in a colourful cardboard box with a collectable action figure featuring the chef in various guises.
As CZN Burak told FACT when we sat down with him recently, “The Dubai restaurant is a launching pad for the CZN Burak brand in the GCC, and customers can expect to see a lot of me here. Whether at the restaurant, performing famously breath-taking shows, or on social media, sharing the magic and passion with my worldwide followers.”
Just a few days after opening, CZNBurak Burger is buzzing. Diners are in for a colourful, fun and casual dining experience in an environment designed to maximise social media exposure. CZNBurak Burger represents another Dubai hit for Instagram sensation CZN Burak.
