My wife LOVES beef and often requests that I cook a 'real beef burger' ... not easy to do at home in CM.

A visit to Kamthieng Plant Market, just before lunchtime, offered the perfect opportunity to seek out White Plate.

Despite numerous visits to TescoLotus and KPM we never noticed JJ Market opposite the western exit - it has to be the most innocuous shopping precinct (strip mall) ever built. >>> cries out for a street-lift <<<

White Plate did not disappoint. Fabulous beef burgers par none! @150bt the mango burger was excellent value - pure beef with fresh salad ingredients and a nice sauce, lightly spiced .. not overpowering. We required no extra sauce or seasoning. Burgers were perfect!

KPM shopping trips just got more interesting ... and tastier.

The coffee is Illy, always good, and the cappucino was stunning. I forgot to mention the burger bun, a fresh, light bread with sesame atop a medium crust .... perfection baking.

Tried this place the other day and beef burger was great. More of a gourmet burger in the quality of ingredients and attention to detail. The beef is noticeably high quality--none of the gristly bits you usually get in local beef. The burger I got was just like the photos posted: well seasoned patty, very ripe and fresh tomato and lettuce, a thick slice of cheese, peppered bacon, pickled beet, big sesame bun with a nice bite to it. It's usually a good sign when a burger doesn't need extra ketchup or other condiments, and this one definitely didn't. Fries were soft inside with a nice crust. Very tasty mustard aioli for dipping. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

For those who found they had run out... I think this post has sent a higher number of people there recently so they were probably a bit off guard. I want to try the breakfast on Sat/Sun.

' this place could become so popular that no one goes there anymore.'

Bar little old me.

Good food by genuine people. IMHO.

Mango on a burger does not sound that appealing to me, but I was firmly against pineapple on pizzas until I actually tried it on a decent pizza and then I was hooked. This is the first time that I've wanted to try a burger place in a while. smile.png

I hear you :)

I was curious to try beets on a burger. Living abroad does open your mind with respect to food :)

You are right. Australians like beets on burgers and I do too, even though I was sceptical before I had it. I am willing to give mango a try.

Makes sense to me. Mango is a little sweet like ketchup. Now the beets sounds great. Fresh or pickled. Either way. I will check this place out.

Went there a couple of days ago with a friend. I had the mango burger and she had the Caesar salad. I too was skeptical of the beets but was pleasantly surprised. The burger, as a whole, was excellent and I loved the interplay of flavors. I also sampled the salad it it was good enough that I'll give it a full trial on my next trip there.

I had a mango, beet burger today. It was the best hamburger I've had since coming to SouthEast Asia and it was perfect with no other seasonings. The mango and beets really taste good with beef. I am going to have a hard time sticking to a mostly vegetarian diet now that I know it's there.

By the way, you can not see it from the street. You have to go into the main entrance where it says Jing Jai (JJ) Market, go straight to the back and turn left towards the Rimping Market. It says "Best Burgers in Chiang Mai" in front of the shop.

Kudos to CMNightRider for finding this place. thumbsup.gif

It was the first time I've had beets on a burger and it made sense once I realized they were pickled beets--similar to having pickles but more cripsy which is good and the color adds a nice touch.

Arrrgh, I'm crestfallen that I've only found this thread on my last night here this time round. Hopefully the cafe will do well and maintain high standards so that I can partake on my return in May. I did pass the information along to my Kiwi hotel owner so that he and his wife can visit. Ah well....my 50/50 burger at Fat Elvis' place (50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon) was relatively satisfying.
