If there’s one thing we all can agree on, it’s that a burger craving is a merciless strike.

It doesn’t matter what time it is, but as soon as that hunger for the patty-on-bun dish arrives unwelcomingly, it will crazily drive you to do whatever until you can shovel that juicy, dripping burger into your belly.

But as we are social-distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak, relishing hand-cut fries and from-scratch burgers at your favourite haunts is far from possible. Now what is possible, though, is that burger buffs can order all the usuals from thier go-to burger joints. And for those newbies who are still not in the know for decent burger institutions in town, here’s our curated list of Bangkok’s best burger joints, which deliver succulence right to your doorstep.

The New York Style Steak & Burger

New York never fails when it comes to American staples like pizza, cheesecake, and, of course, burgers.

Those who are addicted to food with heat, The Atomic (THB 420) comes drenched with a pungent, extra-spicy jalapeño ranch dressing.

Daniel Thaiger

It’s not possible to live in Bangkok, love burgers, and not know Daniel Thaiger. The red-painted food truck pioneered the authentic burger trend in the city. Daniel Thaiger stands in contrast with other places with its classic-but-serious take on the American delight. Diners can expect quality, cooked-to-perfection patties, and melted cheddar cheese sandwiched perfectly between the fluffy brioche buns. Go for Mr Steve Beef Burger (THB 320) with caramelised grilled onions, crispy bacon, and a slap of Thaiger sauce. Or opt for the Cowboy Burger (THB 320) spiced up with jalapenos, smoked BBQ sauce ,and more bacon if you love anything extra. For the latest addition, try their Salmon Burger (THB 320) laden with feta cheese and slathered with dill yoghurt sauce.

Chunky – More Than Just A Burger

Chunky is all about refinement touched with Thai taste. The burgers here boast the typical structure of pristine and juicy Thai farm-raised beef and pork patties, made-from-scratch buttery buns, Chunky’s special sauce (think In-N-out animal-style dip), strong cheese, and house-made pickles. Every burger on the menu contains delightful surprises with a unique Thai twist that sets them apart from other typical American classic burger spots. Everything on the menu is delicious (tried and tasted) but what’s to-die-for is their Chicken with Salted Egg and Cheese Burger (THB 340).
