The other day I had to go out to Srinakarin (near Seacon Square) for work, and since I typically don’t find myself in this area, I figured I’d make the best of it and see if I could find a burger. As luck would have it, as soon as I turned into the soi, I came across this place: Meat & Greet Burger. If that name doesn’t say come on in and eat me, I’m not sure what does.
So here I was just in front of Talad Rot Fai (Train market) about to have a burger. Originally this market was located near JJ market, but it was moved awhile back out to this area. Anyway, it’s a pretty cool market if you’ve never visited it. I would recommend it. Ok back to the beef. The restaurant is pretty small, but seemed clean and comfortable. I was only guest at the time, so I had the place to myself … which also meant fast, efficient service.
Cheese Burger – THB 169.- (Apx. US $5.63)
“Beef patty, lettuce, tomato and cheese on a bun.”
If I had to be quite honest, there’s not really much to say about this burger. Overall, I thought it was ok, but I didn’t find myself making that “mmmmmmmm” sound as I consumed the burger. I felt the flavor was ok, but probably a bit on the salty side. Also, they do not give the option of cooking how you like; I tried to order medium but was told only one way. Fair enough, sometimes less choice is better. I think that I also found a bit (a small chunk) of filler (bread crumbs) in the patty – which is too bad. I like idea of all-beef patties. Anyway, one thing I did like was that the cheese pretty much fused the patty to the top half of the bun. I don’t really know why I like this, it didn’t do anything flavorwise for the burger, but I guess everyone has their quirks.
I should mention that I did like the bun. It was quite soft and actually reminded me of Wonder bread. Lettuce & tomato, nothing to mention here. Now, the burger also comes with fries … they seem to have been seasoned with salt and parsley – I had or two (trying to choose my calories a bit better), they were ok, and they looked pretty good. So, all-in-all, burger was ok and I get to check one more place off of my burger list!
