The Counter's Second Saudi Arabian Store Is Now Open
The Counter Custom Built Burgers is now operating its second Saudi Arabian location in Riyadh. The Counter offers a “burger for every lifestyle,” with more than a million possible combinations and embraces “burgers with a conscience,” using naturally raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free beef, all-natural chicken, locally sourced shrimp, and a house-made vegan/veggie burger for their burger and salad style burger bowls. Additionally, The Counter serves a wide selection of bold signature burgers and burger bowls, flavorful side dishes, milkshakes, all featuring quality ingredients.
At The Counter, guests creatively construct their burgers by selecting from the following options using a checklist-style menu:
Step 1—Choose a Burger: Pick a protein
Step 2—Choose a Cheese: Choose from a variety of imported and domestic cheeses including Danish Blue Cheese, Greek Feta, Herb Goat Cheese spread, Cheddar, Jalapeno Jack, Gruyère and soft ripened Brie
Step 3—Choose a Sauce: Top it off with sauces including spicy sour cream, sweet Sriracha, basil pesto, chipotle aioli, peanut sauce, tzatziki or sun-dried tomato vinaigrette
Step 4—Choose a Topping: Select from several toppings including crushed peanuts, sautéed mushrooms, sliced avocado, homemade chili, carrot strings, dill pickle chips, dried cranberries, grilled pineapple, roasted corn & black bean salsa, fried egg, avocado, and spicy pepperoncini
Step 5—Choose a Bun: Put it all between a choice of artisan-baked buns like brioche style, Hawaiian bun and English muffin—or in a bowl over a bed of organic mixed greens or lettuce blend.
Step 6—Choose a Side: Add shoestring fries, crispy onion strings, quinoa salad, housemade chili, or grilled vegetable skewers
