Jay Williams, complex executive chef, The Westin Dubai and Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina offers the low down on Barasti’s new late night gourmet burger truck, Buns & Cows.
What’s unique about Buns & Cows?
Buns & cows is made from a converted shipping container, and we’re open until 4am on weekends. The burger patties are made from 100% New Zealand grass-fed beef freshly ground and marinated just before cooking, and the buns are 100% all-butter brioche.
Talk us through the menu:
Burgers start from AED 35 and the menu includes The Fat Cow, which comes with crispy onions rings, BBQ sauce, smoked cheddar and our 220g grass-fed patty, and the Spicy Cow (lettuce, tomato, smoked veal bacon bits, jalapeno, chipotle cheese mayo and sour cream.
Sounds good, but are there any healthy options? We’ve got the Hippy Cow (beetroot and goats cheese patty, tomato, lettuce, onion, pickled beetroot, fried egg) and The Skinny Cow is a patty wrapped in fresh iceberg lettuce instead of the brioche bun.
Tell me a fun fact about Buns & Cows: Our mascot, Daisy, was born in a small village in France called Saint-Haon-le-Châtel. She travelled through France then boarded a ship and sailed to Malta to see her cousin Tessie before traveling down the Nile river and through the Red Sea. She took a left at Bab el-Mandeb Strait and headed north for the final stretch before landing right on Barasti beach, where she took up her majestic position on the roof of Buns & Cows.
Buns & Cows at Barasti Beach is open Wednesday – Friday 10pm – 4am
