World Class Hamburger Review

Recommended Posts

The place just past Mae Chan on the way into CR is called "Teak Cafe".

It is an orange building or orange sign.

It is just before you get to the Cosmo on the other side of the highway - so when you see the Cosmo on the other side of the road, start to slow down and look out for it.

I stopped at the "Steak House" on the western side of the highway yesterday for dinner.

They didn't have any beef burgers in stock (they are on the menu for 99B) so I had a pork burger (69B).

Was quite small, but for 69B was a decent portion.

The chips were average. Overcooked and not white and fluffy inside. They were hot and crisp though.

The salad was 3 slices of tomato, couple of onion rings, 4 slices of cucumber and some lettuce leaves.

Salad was nice and fresh.

The bun was average, soft and cake like and a bit too sweet for my taste. I prefer more bread like buns.

The burger had 2 thin pork patties which were tasty with a hint of garlic, but they were soft which suggests they were microwaved rather than cooked on a grill or fry pan.

Overall, not an amazing burger, but for 69B it's decent value and I'd eat it again, but wouldn't go seeking it out if I was craving a burger.

Oh and the Lung Ho iced black coffee was very good.

Finally. I may know where these places are. Thanks B)

OK so I caught caught in a torrential downpour on the way to CR just now and am stopped at the Teak Cafe to get out of the rain and have a coffee and burger.

A big thank you to David for putting me onto this place as it is the best burger I've had in Thailand.

Taste was great, not too salty so you could taste all the individual ingredients.

Meat patty was a good size (about 1/4 pounder size at maccas, or slightly bigger) and juicy and solid mince (ie. not too much filler).

Salad on the burger was nice.

Only thing I would change is that the cheese was something like a Kraft single. A tastier real cheese would have been better, but it still tasted great and wouldn't stop me eating one again (which I definitely will).

Also they put mayo on the burger which I didn't mind, but might try it without next time.

Plus it has decent speed wifi. So I will definitely be coming back to eat and use the wifi instead of going all the way into CR to McDonalds for a burger fix and wifi.

Oh yeah the black coffee was really nice too.

and I thought this was a review of Barry's burgers.

No chance, just like a lot of old women prattling on about where something is or was or should be....I think it's over there, NO, its behind there, NO its around the corner.

Kandahar never doubted that it existed. Kandahar doubted, based on your VARIOUS sets of directions, conflicting descriptions and your corrections of what you had written previously, that anyone could find the place in short order, which indeed was the case. Kandahar did liken your chase to "Where's Waldo". But of course, just as in your lost burger joint case, Waldo is always found in the end. So, I'll stick with the Waldo comment.

You chastised Kandahar for giving directions to the place when he did not give directions although KimoMax did and you said that wasn't the place. You later typed this- "And yes I would drive there to get one." Maybe you would drive there to get one but you wouldn't drive there to get exact directions to the place and an exact description of the place to keep from making yourself look like an awkward <deleted> that has led the thread into a train wreck. So, if you've got frustrations about this thread, have them with your own incompetence, not with me. If you want to have frustrations with me, I have plenty of other stuff written on this forum that would qualify for it. Go back to those threads and let us have a discussion. And bring your "hamburgler", beer drinking friend that has obviously been using you to do his dirty work. I'm not afraid of him, either. Soon enough, you'll find out you're a big boy and you really don't care to be his lacky. All the previous ones did. But you seem to be taking a bit longer to catch on.

Yes, it was , wasn't it. :(

But it became more than the Sum of its Parts. Probably two good places we have found with Similar names. So whats the Problem ?

And Maybe, Dave's not Pissed !? and maybe he's not right behind you :D

Guys , may I remind you, we're just talking about Burgers here. :o In the big scheme of things (In my world anyway), its nothing to get hot under the collar about.

The prize Burger was found in the end. with a bit of entertainment along the way. Thats how it is here, I couldnt find the <deleted> place either , although I won't admit to actually looking for it. Jai Yen Yen or something. :jap:

Is the airline ticket from CR included in the price of the burgers?

Looks like its already been extracted from someone . :o

certainly wouldn't pass EU regulations. You'd need an NBC Suit to even attempt it. :D

Your not going to give us directions hopefully.

Sorry One Eye but that Buggler looks like something out of a "Soggy Bottom Boys" nightmare.

Juicy does not mean soggy. And what is that greenery on that thang ? Clippings from mowing the yard and trimming the weeds.

It is probably good, other than the very apparent Soggy Bottom bun.

Will have to give the Teak House (or Cafe') Buggler a try (East side of Super Hwy opposite the Cosmo Gas station, north of Mae Fa Luang Univ.)

Cheese is'nt the easies thing to get here in CR. I perfer the Singles that are Smoked cheddar and Orange colour to the white cheddar singles.

More similar what is called American Cheese in the US.

WCH Barry's is still a pretty good place most of the time. Just think he needs to work on consistancy and ease of ordering.
