A Place You Have To Try!

Recommended Posts

Ok ordered it today through chefsxp who I must say had the order delivered warm in one hour even during todays storm :)

Overall I give it a 7 out of 10.

Good points, food quality was fine. Quantity ok.

Points to improve IMO...

A bit expensive.

Buns on our chicken and pull pork burger are the same u get at the supermarket and don't travel well (soggy from the hot meat)

Sauces while good are exactly the same for the burgers and ribs we ordered-would appreciate a lil variety or at least a spicy option for the ribs.

Anything else available besides frozen tator tots???

I appear to be missing an extra side of coleslaw in my order?

Couldn't check the bill as it was soaked from the rain.

Total price incl 60 baht delivery- 869.00

Conclusion: would likely wait to try it at the restaurant to avail larger menu (metro burger) and to avoid the loss of quality due to travelling across the city.

Is this the place way out in Nonthaburi?

i hate hearing about great places that are almost impossible to get to without a great deal of effort. :)

I can recommend a great little restaurant at Scott base in the Antarctic but its one hel-l of a trip.:D

Thats a kiwi restaurant, I prefer Rothera on Adelaide Island, great british grub and cosy decor!!!

We went there yesterday for a late lunch, superb ribs -hickory wood smoked-, quessiladas and an awesome -blue cheese- salad (nice dressing sauce)

Washed down by beers for me and delightful margarita for the missus.

Plus a take-away burger... and the ribs leftover for the dogs!

As well, a very nice warming welcome from Mark...

Thanks! But where is the place? I love to take my family once in one year and not every week. We have to watch our weight.

Mark just got a new location on Suk. Order at chefsXP.com and it will come to your door. I love their BBQ and it makes living here even better. Thanks Mark for listening to your customers.

Does anybody know where this new location on Sukhumvit is? Thanks.

I don't think that's a retail location - only a kitchen for the purposes of providing delivery services.

Just a follow up on the pricing thing I mentioned earlier, found the confirmation of my order in my email...

ORDER

------------------------------------------------------

1 x Signature BBQ Chicken Breast Sandwich with Tater Tots (2201) = 180.83

1 x Carolina Pork Rib Sandwich with Tater Tots (2203) = 277.13

1 x Pork Spare Ribs: 6 bones, Tater Tots & Cole Slaw (2207) = 319.93

1 x Cole Slaw: Small (85 gr.) (2214) = 32.10

------------------------------------------------------

DELIVERY FEE: 60.00

TOTAL (incl.vat): 869.99

I was right when I mentioned missing one cole slaw. BTW, 277 baht for the pulled pork burger is really a bit much IMO.

Thanks. Will use ChefsXP - Nonthaburi is just way too far to go for a burger - no matter how good.

I've learned to check my order before paying now. Not that I don't trust ChefsXP - just that I think the restaurants sometimes don't pay attention. But I also think that the delivery boy should double check all orders before delivering them... in fact here's a good idea - if anything is missing or wrong, the delivery fee should be waived... c'mon K. Sorot, here's your chance :)

As for the rib burger - you ordered the ribs, make your own burger. Must admit I thought about the burger too but the ribs made more sense.

Well the coleslaw is only 35 baht, if I had to guess it is still in the bottom of the delivery bag (hot bag). The other coleslaw I did receive was in a separate small plastic container in it's own tiny plastic bag - hence my reply. Anyways I am not about to start tearing apart the bags of food / containers in my lobby to check that I got everything I ordered.

The ribs were fine and worth the money, the pulled (chopped?) pork burger, while tasty (the relish is nice) would not be enough to fill one average sized person. I wonder how many JFC can eat? :lol: Anyways at 9 USD, I won't order that again.

I also think the ribs are excellent. As i've said before, personally I'd like the BBQ sauce on the side, but each to their own biggrin.gif

I thought that the "Carolina Pork Rib Sandwich" was a little expensive too (compared to the signature pork and chicken sandwiches), but then realised that the meat is shaved off from their ribs, and i'm guessing that those are pretty expensive to source. Even here, I guess they are prime.

Does anyone know how they make these ribs (Thai Gerd!) because I'd like to try and make them myself?

dear tv forum folks,

due to strong, consistent demand, our popular metro burger (chicken version also), baby drumsticks and home-made chili are now on the chefsxp.com menu and available for delivery to your home and/or office anywhere in the bangkok area.

many say our metro burger is the best in bangkok, but i think you should be the judge.

enjoy.

thank you very much.

we certainly do appreciate your business.

kind regards,

mark

Just had a look on the Chefxp menu and have a question. Where's the beef?
