Hunting down really good burgers in Sheikh Zayed with all of our favorite sides has become one of our pastimes. Now that Mince has come to such a handy location in Sheikh Zayed, life just became a lot easier!
Type of Cuisine & Signature Dishes
Burgers and much, much more! The Mince Platter, of course, is a signature dish comprising of a combo of chicken popcorn, fried mozzarella sticks, onion rings, wings and a selection of dips. The Juicy Lucy burger, the irresistible Sliders and Waffle Potatoes served with cheese sauce, mint yogurt with beef bacon bits, sweet relish and pickles. For anyone with a sweet tooth, don’t miss out on the Elvis French Toast; homemade toast served with Nutella, banana and caramel sauce, with the option of adding ice cream.
It’s hard not to swing into an upbeat mood from the minute you walk in the door of Mince. Is it the crisp, punchy decor, the great choice of music, or the relaxed, friendly smiles of the serving team? Whatever, it works!
Appetites primed, we ordered up large. Slender fries, Loaded Nachos with chilli and lashings of cheese and sour cream (cardiologists can turn the page at this point), the Mince Platter with Honey Mustard and BBQ salsa and Corn Dogs that took us straight to the fairgrounds of the 60s. We added a virtuous touch with a fresh, crunchy Caesar Salad, we are proud to say.
There was no chance of our missing out on the famous Mince burgers. For us, Sliders were the way to go. Easily demolished in a couple of bites, they are perfect replicas of the full-sized burgers, but you can get to enjoy a selection. We chose the Juicy Lucy with American cheese, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, pickles and the special Mince sauce, the Smoked Burger with caramelized onions, raspberry jam, smoked cheese and Mince sauce and the BBQ Burger with caramelized onions, served with beef bacon, American cheese, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, pickles, Mince sauce and BBQ sauce. And yes, they were just what we had hoped for. Lean, flavor-packed beef, fresh salad ingredients and great buns. Nothing sloppy or greasy, every element had been perfectly judged and combined.
Even though we had eaten what seemed a ridiculous amount, and enjoyed every morsel, we spent a few minutes sipping our fresh orange juice while our fresh apple pie was in the oven. Common sense ruled, we decided to share. Our waiter immediately produced two plates with gleaming cutlery, spick and span like everything at this superb establishment. Topped with vanilla ice-cream, it proved that classics are winners!
Beverage Options Available
Shakes and smoothies, juices and non-alcoholic cocktails, along with a good selection of coffee and tea.
Décor & Ambience
Urban chic, contemporary and fresh. Think black and white mural, yellow, zingy apple green, black accents, natural wood tables and industrial style steel tubing straddling the ceiling. Seating is both indoor and outdoor, with both areas being pleasant and welcoming.
Ambience is lively without being overbearing. A nice hum of conversation blending with the background music.
Clientele Mix & Price Range
Perfect for all ages, not just for kids. Maybe burgers bring out the inner child in all of us. On our weekday visit we saw mainly groups of young professionals in their 20s and 30s. Price range is moderate.
