Have you ever met a girl (or guy) that checked all of your must have boxes – looks, substance, qualities, etc… but in the end, no matter how much you knew you should love her (him)… or maybe not love, but at least more than “like” her … you just didn’t feel it. That’s how I felt about this burger. It was one of those “It’s not you, it’s me” moments. I liked it, but didn’t “like, liked” it. But just because I didn’t fall in love, doesn’t mean you won’t. So here it is…

Jamie’s Burger (THB 299.-)

100g patty (Thai-Aussie beef), bacon, (processed) cheddar cheese, jalapeños, caramelized onions and homemade tomato mayo

Sorry, no top shot of the burger this time… between the cheese and the tomato mayo/onion mix, I wasn’t in the mood to make a mess. That said, it was cooked fine and seasoned ok. Ground pepper stood out, but wasn’t overpowering. Beef quality seemed good. No issue with grind size, texture or gristle.  The thing that stood out the most was the bacon….it was very crispy… and I know that there are a few of you “god-dammit, why can’t anyone make the bacon crispy” guys out there… and if you are one of them, this might be for you. Burgers are available in beef or pork, and with the option I picked, you get your choice of fries or side salad. I went with the salad… but it wasn’t anything special. Just lettuce and lots and lots of dressing. A tomato wedge and a couple pieces of onion would go a long way here… just saying.

Anyways, this place along with Arno’s, seem to making big expansion moves… Jamie’s has about 4 spots now I think. I’m sure some of you have tried it, so please let us know what you think on the BBB Facebook page. Or let us know what you think is the Best Burger in Bangkok.

 

Moo Gourmet Burgers (Bondi Beach)

This place has a number of locations; you can check out their website for more info.

So let’s just jump in… this is what I had:

Beef Avocado and Bacon Burger (AU$15.50.-)

Beef Avocado and Bacon

WTF?! I thought all burgers in Australia were going to be awesome! Oh how wrong I was. We visited Bondi Beach, and saw this place so we thought we’d give it a go. Looked cool… and had many burgers on offer.  For the month of April, you can add a dollar to your burger order to donate to breast cancer reasearch … and if you do that, you can get your burger on a pink bun. We did. So if you were wondering about the pink bun… that’s why.

But here’s where I had most of my issues… the bun. It was too big. The outside to hard and dry… and the inside too soggy (I hate wet bread). Patty was ok, but a tad on the dry side.

On the plus side, the bacon and avocado were good… and I enjoyed the onion rings, and the view wasn’t bad either.

Ribs and Burgers (Sydney)

2 Apr

Popped in here on my first day in Sydney… figured sitting on a 9 hour flight on a cramped Thai Airways flight next to possibly one of the stinkiest people alive earned me a burger (and cider).

As we were wandering around Sydney harbor, we happened by this joint and am glad we did. I ordered an Aussie burger (minus the egg – not a fan). Burgers run from about AU$ 11.-18 (300-500 THB) and sides are extra.

Overall, I enjoyed the burger. The standout element for me was the bacon… its salty goodness pretty much stood out above all else. That said, when I first picked it up red “juice” seemed to pour  from it onto the plate… I though “damn, that’s a lot of blood for a burger done medium! I then remember Aussie burgers have beetroot on them… and then everything made sense.

Apparently there are branches all across Australia… you can check out their menu and locations on their website. Ribs looked pretty good. Will have to try sometime.
