Default left bank at the Old Town Souq, Dubai

Was there last night for dinner and drinks, I have to say that the burger was the most tastless watery burger I have ever tasted...utter shoite..

Knew we should have went to the rivington grill for some 20quid fish and chips..

I never put salt on my food, but with the excuse for a burger I was laying on the salt and pepper just to try to react some taste out of the thing..

Go to Burger king..better burger by far

We went down to see the fountains on Thursday night - they didn't start till 9pm and only lasted about 2 mins - is this normal?

We were very disappointed in them.

Wise person-but I knew that about ya already....


I love ground black pepper-not white it's skanky.
French mustard.... yum
Salt makes me cringe thinking about it .

Commander,stick a fresh stalk of celery in your Bloody Mary as a swizzlestick and for chomping on instead of salty crisps or nuts......
Do you put Tio Pepe in too? and a little tabasco.
Lovely.

a spicey bloody mary is angels' nectar, lol...

commander, shame you didn't have a good meal in leftbank, it's normally pretty good, but i don't eat burgers so don't know whether they are always bad or you were just unlucky...

We don't normally when we are out but we both really had a notion for one. My wife thought exactly the same about hers..

I've had a lot of good meals in the Left Bank chains..but I won't be having a burger again.

I don't eat salt either - my kids LOVE it. It can be a cause of stomach cancer apparently, as the salt erodes the lining of the stomach and when the lining regrows cancerous cells can grow.

Tomato juice ? Yeeeeuky, where's the puking smiley?

Salt is an essential ingredient in our diets, however there is usually enough salt included. I suffered on friday due to depleted salt levels ans dehydtation at the end of my training.

But agree TOO MUCH is really really bad
