Abu Dhabi Showdown Week sounds absolutely brilliant.
We're particularly excited for Knockout Burgers, as we've teamed up with the event organisers and 37 bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants across the city to bring you some incredible burger deals.
Here are four to try downtown in Abu Dhabi.
This hipster and wholesome café is offering brilliant deals on burgers for vegetarians, vegans and, of course, meat lovers. Each one comes with fries, a drink and a side of deli salad, and the choices include the signature Café Burger (with lots of melted cheese), buttermilk-fried chicken with avocado and turkey and the vegan-friendly red lentil and cauliflower burger.

The casual pub has come up with two creations for Showdown Week. The barbecue pulled-beef burger features shredded slow-cooked beef with barbecue sauce and pickled gherkin, while the towering Heroes burger is laden with a fried egg, beef bacon, salad and coleslaw. If you finish that you really will be a hero.
