Yummy (2017)

YummyCorner ExteriorSukhumvit 49 (20 meters to the right from Villa 49), Open: 8.30-7.00pm daily.

I’ve been passing this shop for some time, but I’ve been hesitant to try a place called “Yummy”…. I don’t know why, but for some reason I didn’t believe they could live up to their name. That said, they have some burgers (both beef and pork) – so I knew I would pop in sooner or later. It’s been on my mind for the past month, and I finally got around to it. They also have pancakes, tacos, taco salad, chicken fingers, club sandwich and hotdogs, etc… really a kids’ dream restaurant. And in the end, this all makes sense as it turns out this place is affiliated with the nearby American School of Bangkok – which I’m sure the kids love.

With a name like “Yummy Burger” I was expecting it to be a huge fail, but it turns out that I pleasantly surprised (and again, knowing it is connected to ASB – maybe the name “yummy burger isn’t so bad considering their clientele. I’m almost embarrassed to say so, but I liked this burger. It was everything a burger is supposed to be: simple, tasty and affordable. I would liken it to a cleaner version of a  truckstop burger in the US. It was just the right amount of greasy. They are using Thai/French beef, but I think they must  be making their own patties as the fat content seems higher than what you would get from the meat counter in Villa. Doesn’t seem to have any fillers and they are light on the seasoning. Buns come from Villa, but buttered and toasted… no problems here.Veggies were clean and fresh.

And since I was there… I also had a “cheeseburger taco” – I liked this as much as the burger – maybe even more as they use real cheddar instead of the slice of American… and the burger patty is the same.

At the end of the day, it’s missing that “something special” to make it the “best” burger in Bangkok… but for what it is, it’s worth trying, and since it’s in my “hood” – I imagine I’ll be stopping by from time to time.
