Burger joints are opening up city-wide and is all the rage these days. You can have a posh beetroot bunned foie-gras burger at a white table-clothed restaurant or hang out by the side of the road at 2am and chow down on some greasy fries and a dodgy bun.
With their modern basement feel, paired with faux brick work and moody filament lighting, Hamburg brings classic and fusion burgers and pairs them with cocktails and German beer. Beef or pork burgers are served in a variety of different styles. For Japanese food lovers, try the teriyaki sauce burger, served in a black sesame bun. American burger lovers enjoy their homemade tomato sauce and cheese burger, and for Thai food lovers, bite into a burger laced with either nam prik ong, laab sauce or northern hang lay curry, all for less than 200 baht! For those hot days, try their prawn burger served with homemade mango sauce for something a little more refreshing. Dinner, sorted.
Open daily, 5pm – 10pm

One of the newest additions to the plethora of food stalls and trucks along Suthep Road flanking the university (and another branch in town) is a box that sells inexpensive, delicious and 100% beef burgers. With classic juicy burgers starting at just 70 baht, Burger Box is a bargain. Pork burgers, chicken burgers and fish burgers are even cheaper, and the variety is impressive for such a small box. They even do a mean fish and chips. Owned by two brothers, their chips (skins still on please) and onion rings are all homemade.
