A friend of mine told me that I should check this place out. So I did. It’s located on the ground floor of EmQuartier (just around the corner from the newly opened Dean & Deluca) — looks like a battle of the grocer/delis is about to go down! The space is quite airy – there’s high ceilings and plenty of natural light. They had 2 burgers on the menu: a breakfast burger – made of pork, and then the Jones Burger – made of beef.

When we went in, there were a number of other tables – and the staff I encounter were all polite and professional, and I went straight for the burger.

Jones Burger – THB 495- ++

“Australian Wagyu patty, bacon, melted Swiss cheese, truffle mayonnaise, pickles, yellow mustard, caramelized onions on a sesame seed bun.”

Jones the Grocer Jones BurgerThere were 2 things that I loved about this burger. 1. They didn’t skimp on bacon! There was loads of it, and it was glorious. 2. The burger that I had had a pretty awesome “burger crust” on the patty. It had that slightly salty crunchy goodness that I wish more burgers had.

However, overall the burger was a tad on the salty side for me. This was not because of over-seasoning of the beef – which seemed to be lightly seasoned – it was a result of having so much bacon. This is a first world burger problem!! Anyway, I thought both the pickles and caramelized onions added a bit of sour and sweet to help balance out the savoriness of the bacon/patty. As for the truffle mayo and yellow mustard, I couldn’t really even taste it. I’m sure there was a drizzle of mayo, because I saw it — but no clue about the mustard. The bun was soft and fresh, no complaints here. The burger also came with a side of fries – your standard run of the mill frozen shoestring variety. At the end of the day, would I eat this burger again? Sure, but I wasn’t blown away by it. If you’re in the area and having a salt/bacon/burger craving … this should satisfy it! As for me, the journey of looking for the best burger in Bangkok continues.
