Homegrown burger concept SLAW has teamed up with Korean brand Samyang – the original masters of spice – to launch a limited-edition burger that will be available for only two days. Known as the ‘Slam Yum’, the burger is a deep-fried beauty, succulent chicken, marinated in a secret sauce, wrapped in ramen noodles and coated with a curated blend of spices. To finish, the spiced sensation is smothered in an eyewatering sauce (be warned it’s a creeper), homemade kimchi cushioned between two pillowy potato buns, sprinkled with sesame seeds, and crowned with spring onions and pickled red jalapeño. The Slam Yum is priced at Dhs50 and will be available on Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th July 2021.

Celebrating the life of influential French artist, writer, and bon-vivant: Jean Cocteau, the new cocktail menu at LPM takes you on, not only a sensory journey, but tells the life story of Jean in an incredibly unique way. Designed by the LPM Global Bar Manager Tibor Krascsenics, the new menu has been one year in development. It consists of four chapters, each highlighting a place that Jean once called home.
