OFF THE BEATEN PATH – PARKER’S
This tucked away little gem is currently in Al Khazan Park, opposite City Walk 2, in Jumeirah.
I say “currently” because it is due to move to the Dubai Mall, imminently. So I reckon you should try and check it out before it moves. The food will be as good in the Dubai Mall, don’t get me wrong, but there’s something charming about being in a park and tucking into their delicious grub.
Parker’s are serving up what is at present, my favourite burger in Dubai.
It’s called the Choco X Coffee and it is properly divine and small enough to make you want to have a second one.
It’s wagyu beef infused with coffee, white cheddar cheese, beetroot and chocoxcoffee sauce. The result is melt in your mouth perfection.
I’ve been there twice already and have pretty much tried everything on their menu, including their black lemonade, which I highly recommend.
Before I carry on I should tell you that Parker’s is open from 12pm-7pm to anyone who doesn’t have a key and after that…you have to have one of their secret keys to eat there. They post clues on their social media daily, with clues on where you can find said keys. Anyway, if you get there before 7pm then you’re all good.
So let’s get back to the food.
You should try their fried mac n cheese (bite sized yumminess).
The Crunch Chicken (it has potato strips in it!!!)
The Sriracha Shrimpsroll (so good).
The streets fries! (soooo good).
The Zaatar chips.
Basically you can’t go wrong with whatever is on their menu.
Then finish it off with their decadent and delicious dessert (I don’t know what it’s called but it’s fantastic):
Parker’s is off the beaten path and well worth a visit.
