Every now and then I go against my better judgement and do something that I know I really shouldn’t.  But curiosity got the best of me.

I’ll sum it up like this… if you had a bit of this in your mouth without knowing what it was, I highly doubt you would think it was beef burger. It was like I was chewing on salty, chewy ball of dough with something in it. The bread was a bit chewy from being microwaved, patty wasn’t really noticeable… the main taste… the salty sweet tomato mustard sauce on it. I guess if I look at it in a positive way, it met my expectations.

BTW – shouldn’t the cheese be on the top and the sauce on the bottom? Someone’s slacking on the burger factory line!

Breaking it down: burger weight 97g … 28% of that beef (apex 27g) and 47%  bun (45g) … and 10% weird sauce / 12% cheese (last 3% spices)… it’s no wonder it doesn’t really taste of beef.  For comparison, a McDonald’s burger patty is apex 45g… and that seems small.

Will keep this short and sweet. I visited this place in 2011 when I first started this blog… you can see the post here. This round, I enjoyed it more. I ate this as takeaway, so I’m sure it would have been a bit better in the shop… but I was hungry for a burger and this hit the spot. Minor complaint… on the menu it said that it comes with a salad and fries, but there was no salad to be seen. I suppose this is more for a the want of eating (of seeming to eat a bit healthier).

burger price range: 280 – 370+

Also, just a fyi, yesterday when I drove by, I saw a sign that said free heineken with burger order. Not sure how long this would last or if it was just a one day thing, but sounds good to me.

Burgering Abroad: The Corner (Paris)

The Corner Black Angus Burger Cut

The Corner Burger Exterior Paris37 Rue Lamarck, Montmartre, Paris

I recently was fortunate enough to spend about 2 weeks in France, and inbetween stuffing my face with baguettes and seeing some of the sites I somehow stumbled upon a small Burger joint. Truth be told, I wasn’t looking to eat a burger, but the two restaurants we stopped by before this one didn’t really seem too bothered about them being restaurants and wanting customers. Doors were open, but they said they weren’t serving food. Anyway, fine by me… we passed a signed that listed a “Black Angus Burger” on it … and next thing I know I was saying “Au revoir Black Angus Burger” as I stuffed my face with its juicy goodness.

The cost for this beauty was 18 euros (Apx THB 720 or so). Probably my favorite bit was the cheese – it was awesome and I’ve never seen a burger with cheese like this. It also came with a small salad and a side of Home Fries/Fried Potatoes (which were pretty damn good).

The patty was good – all beef, simple seasoning. Bun was fresh and the tomato/onion/ketchup element  was good too … not too much, not too little. I won’t go into more details, since I can’t really remember much about it other than that I enjoyed it and I’d happily eat it again.

I’m sure there’s someone out there that is searching out the best burger in Paris … if you see this post, maybe you can give us a few burger joint recommendations for the next time we are there.

Stay tuned for more Bangkok Burger goodness – coming soon.
