Black Tap launches UAE’s first Impossible vegan burger

Meat-imitating patty arrives at top burger joints in Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Black Tap launches UAE’s first Impossible vegan burger

Black Tap has announced that it will be launching the country’s first-ever Impossible Burger – made using the world-famous plant-based meat-replacement.

Famed for being almost indeterminable from meat, the burger uses common proteins – including soya – to recreate the “meatiness” of meat, like the flavour and texture. This isn’t a soya burger, though, as it leans on several other proteins and molecules, too, including heme – a molecule that lives in both plants and animals, which effectively carries the meaty flavour.

And one of the country’s most-famous burger houses has gone all-in on the burger, bringing it to the UAE for the first time. You’ll be able to get your hands on the Impossible All-American Burger at all Black Tap branches in the UAE – available in Dubai at Rixos Premium Dubai, Jumeirah Al Naseem and Dubai Festival City, and in Abu Dhabi at Yas Mall.

The Impossible Burger comes in vegan and vegetarian options. For vegans, the already vegan patty comes with a special sauce and vegan bun, while the veggie option comes with cheese and Black Tap’s signature mayo. It will set you back Dhs105 in Dubai, and Dhs100 in Abu Dhabi.

Depending on your new year’s resolution (how’s that going, by the way?), you may or may not be in the middle of Veganuary, the annual challenge which, surprise, encourages carnivores around the world to go vegan for the month to help reduce environmental impact – so give this a shot, and see how you feel about vegan food, if you were in doubt before.
