Black Tap, Yas Mall
Black Tap, the New York-based burger joint known for its signature craft burgers and Instagrammable milkshakes, will open its first Abu Dhabi-based restaurant this month at Yas Mall. Like existing UAE outposts in Dubai’s Jumeirah Al Naseem and Rixos Premium Dubai, Back Tap at Yas Mall will serve favourites like the ‘Greg Norman burger’ with wagyu beef and blue cheese, the classic ‘all-American burger’ and the ‘all-natural Californian’ with turkey, avocado, Swiss cheese and truffle mayo. Vegetarians fear not, as the regionally-inspired Falafel Burger is on the menu, as is the popular Vegan Burger, crafted from a black bean patty, pickled onions, salsa verde, cilantro and vegan mayo.
“Black Tap takes the classic American luncheonette, and puts our spin on it, with high quality ingredients, 90s hip hop pumping through the speakers, and a one-of-a-kind atmosphere,” says Black Tap owner and famed chef Joe Isidori.
