The Counter Builder – Best thing to happen to a Burger

Ever wanted to build your own veggie burger but were disappointed because of lack of options? Well, FEAR NOT! Because The Counter is here with it’s custom Counter Builder!

I was invited to build my own burger for the Build Off competition which was hosted by Kris Fade and The Secret Squirrel (Karen McLean) and here was my creation “My Vegetarian Dubai” ๐Ÿ™‚ With all my additions, it cost about AED 45-50.

I had been sent a voucher of AED 200 to custom make my burger. Unfortunately, i was late to participate but after requestingย the management the day before the competition, they let me use the voucher to dine in anyway. And what can I say, BEST CUSTOM BUILDย EVER!


I was super impressed by not only theirย service but also the taste of my Custom Build. It consisted of a Veg Patty, Tomatoes, Lettuce, Goats Cheese (yum yum), Onions, Cheddar Cheese, Country Buttermilk Ranch Sauce, Spicy Sour Cream, Mayonnaiseย and Habanero Salsa. It was AH-MAZING!!! Below are the crazy options they have to choose form.


I did not win ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but I was more than happy to have found a place where I could make my own Veggie Burger which did not consist of MUSHROOM in it! Just look at the above and how beautiful it looks ๐Ÿ™‚

I was moreย than happy to have gone to this place with my family as they gifted us a voucher worth AED 200. My mother ordered The Contradiction (AED 39) (without the beef bacon and egg) which consisted of ย – Baby Spinach, Vegan Veggie Patty, Jalapeno Jack Cheese, Oven Roasted Tomato, Garlic Aioli and Hamburger Bun. This was so so amazing too and perfect for those who do not want to build their own.


The fries were super thin and called Shoestring Fries. Went well with the heavy burger. Oh and we were given amazing hot toasted bread with a Mish Masri like paste. We wiped this out in a matter of seconds!


And the next day I went back to see Kris and Karen in person. I had a total fangirl moment ๐Ÿ™‚ The poor guys had to go through 20 burgers to choose the top 3 and i can just about imagine how tough it must have been!




The winner won a years worth of FREE burger! How cool is that ๐Ÿ™‚ The event was very well organized and super fun!

I ca’t wait to go back for my Burger cravings! And to admire this beautiful view up above in The Dubai Mall while you sit in their outside area ๐Ÿ™‚ Isn’t it so pretty ๐Ÿ™‚


Thank you for having me The Counter. And for the amazing free goodies at the end of the event ๐Ÿ™‚



Go there to know why it’s voted the best burger of LA ๐Ÿ™‚ You can find more details and the menu of the counter on Zomato.
