A new restaurant in Ras Al Khaimah has come under scrutiny after advertising a burger worth a whopping AED 3,000, calling the Municipality department for an investigation.
Controversy over burger sold for AED 3,000 in Ras Al Khaimah restaurant
Just like they say, ‘Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes,’ there’s always an appetite for a burger among us, be it a simple patty on a bun or a gourmet version with layers of meat, cheese and flavourful toppings. In the UAE, a burger costs as little as Dhs 6 and goes all the way to hundreds of bucks, except for the infamous ‘Seven Emirates Burgerstack’ in Dubai that fetched a whopping AED 36,700 bid.
Unless you’re in the know, the burger boasted of seven beef patties, with each piece representing every emirate, veal bacon strips and loads of cheddar cheese in a saffron brioche bun, sided with a milkshake. Check it out:
‘Wawan Muscle’, a fresh new burger dining concept rolled out the ‘Gorilla Burger’ with a staggering AED 3,000 price tag, making people question the restaurant’s meat usage of its quality. Ras Al Khaimah Municipality stepped onto the controversy by initiating an investigation to unravel whether are they using gorilla meat.

It turns out, according to Gulf News, the restaurant used Australian Wagyu beef, the top-most breed of beef cattle for its patty, hence reasoning the price. However, they’ve been ordered to suspend the burger offering and have been landed with a huge fine for misleading advertisements.
It’s worth mentioning there’s so much more one can purchase to make the most out AED 3,000. The amount is good enough to get yourself a second-hand Mercedes Benz S 350 sedan, or a two-night staycation at Atlantis The Palm, or even a classy limited-edition Mont Blanc pen!
