Dubai now has a first-of-its-kind Dogecoin-inspired burger joint that accepts payments in cryptocurrencies.

With the launch of Doge Burger, a virtual eating joint, people in Dubai can order food from the comforts of their home using cryptocurrencies, a local news portal reported on Feb. 16.

Launched by Rocket Kitchens, Doge Burger is the "chain’s first crypto-based hospitality concept that will enable consumers across the UAE to order and pay for their meal with digital currency," its website read.

The menu includes a beef burger, chicken burger, mushroom Swiss burger, char cheese and garden burger. The menu also has hotdogs and sides to choose from.

Apart from Dogecoin, customers can pay using Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, CRO, XRP, USDT and Shiba Inu.

Doge Burger, however, is not the first food joint accepting payments in cryptos in the United Arab Emirates as there are others that have been accepting crypto payments since 2014. MetaTerrace, a mixed-reality crypto lounge, also recently opened in Dubai.

Fast-food chains are increasingly getting into crypto. The news follows Dogecoin's competitor Shiba Inu's partnership with Welly's, which is a blockchain-based burger joint serving healthier food options.

Last year, McDonald’s and Burger King also introduced their NFTs (non-fungible tokens). While McDonald’s celebrated 40 years of its McRib sandwich by introducing its NFT on Twitter, Burger King enticed customers with its “Keep It Real” campaign, presenting an opportunity to collect digital art.
