World Class Hamburger Review

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure that is the place that David is talking about. I think he is talking about one that is on the left coming from Mae Sai. Personally, I would not seek out a chicken or pork burger but we will stop at Companion soon and test the coffee. Thanks for the directions.

Correct its on the left past mai fuluang uni....It is a purpose built resteurant with lots of glass and hard wood.Open type plan.you cant miss it...sorry cannot remember the name or exactly where it is but as I have said its a real Burger with fat Crinkle cut fries and cheese.Toasted bun and coleslaw...Iam looking forward to my next MaI SAI TRIP SO AS TO TRY SOMETHING ELSE THERE.has a beautiful bar area and serves cocktails as well.beer of course.......If this place was in the town WCB would not see any customers! Well of course they would but there is no one standing outside trying to lure customers in while draging on a cigerette! that is always a put off seeing that for me and would not step inside that place....But thats me ....

Okay. I think I know now. Building, all by itself, big parking lot, new or about a year old, no other buildings adjoining the property, east side of the highway. I thought it was probably just a glorified, expensive coffee shop. I'll stop in one day and try the burger on for size.

Kandahar mate

It's probably stating the obvious seeing as your favourable reviews put me onto

this place. But, have you tried the burgers at Work @ Home?

Since reading your reviews, I have been there several times and have

found the burgers excellent. Really nice buns, nice meat and fresh salad.

If you haven't, do yourself a favour and give them a crack.

Regards

Will

Agreed. And the Doi Chaang burgers are pretty darn tasty too!

Hi Will. I have tried them and I find them to be okay. If you like that style, fat and small around, then the Wiang Inn is the place to go. In my opinion, the Wiang Inn has the best burger in town of that style. For me, as little as I go to Work @ Home, I always have to go with the home-made bread sandwiches.

Hence my ealier post "Mein Gott.....what happened to.....". Has anyone tried one of Ricos burgers? I noticed they were on the menu there. Will have to try out the ones near Ban Du (sp?). But believe me, the next time I am in CM....I will be doing a burger fix, for sure! Hardly ever when I was back stateside, would I ever go to BurgerKing, but here (in Thailand, CR withstanding)....with the scarcity of such culinary delights, they are by far the best tasting ones in the country that I have found to date. bon apatite....PP

6 km Don.... ? B)

Agree your burgers are good though, I took a visiting member and his wife out there earlier this year and both gave them the thumbs up.

I keep meaning to try one but always end up ordering the tacos.

Yes i can vouch for that.

It was us. :D

No, they are a fair bit big bigger than the small but tasty burgers that can be found at [email protected], the DC burger is one of the best around!

If that the place called "Phuvaree" (or something similar)?

I pass it on the way into town and also thought it looked like an expensive/touristy coffee shop.

If it has good burgers though I may have to check it out...

On my way back from Maisai yesterday we stopped there as there being a lot of talk about the great burgers so I wanted to have one. WELL they had nothing to sell not even a crumb,chip or anything and the girls said "all gone".

The Iced Mocka was great but I really wanted one of their Burgers. Maybe next time.

Can someone who knows exactly where this place is, put it on the TV CR map? I know how to get to Mai Sai and all, but I don't really know the area that well, just the highway. I have to make the yearly visa run in September and would love to try it out. Thanks. PP

All the previous directions and posts had me confused as to what restaurant and where:

Think this is the place as described:

Go North on Super Hwy #1 from Mae Fa Luang Univ.

Past the PTT Benzine Station and 7-11.

West Side of the Road (left when going north).

Sign says "STEAK HOUSE" It used to be a single family home, but converted into a Boutique type environment.

If you get to the Cosmo Benzine Station, turn around. Can also try the Teak House restaurant on the East Side of the Highway if making a U Turn at the Cosmo Station. Varied menu including Falang food. Tried it once a few months back, Nice.

Okay....I got it! It is north of Chiang Rai and south of Mae Sai on the west side of the superhighway near the STEAK sign, kind of in the vicinity of Mah Fah Luang University. I can find it...really. It is all good. Besides, I really do miss Easter. Mind you , I am not that far off from being able to hid my own eggs....been diagnosed with CSR....or was that CRS....hmmmmm.....can't remember. Anyway, There are no such things as problems...only challenges. Now, if I can only remember where I put the car keys......PP
