The best new burger in town comes from a humble location.
This is the reliable, back-to-basics burger joint you want in your neighborhood. The nicely crusted, slightly seasoned patty they say is a mixture of Thai and Japanese wagyu comes squished between a super-soft, charred bun. Throw in some bacon, cheddar cheese, jalapenos, a tangy, tomato-based house sauce and some crisp, chunky cut fries, and you’re in business. A warning: burgers are on the small side, but you can afford to double up.

Arguably the best new burger in town comes from a humble location. Jamie’s Burger is little more than a tiny stall out the front of a futsal complex in residential Ari but its owner, Pongsakorn “James” Boonraksa, takes great care in hand-picking his chilled beef daily.
The burger's beef patty is a well-balanced, slightly seasoned mixture of Thai and Japanese wagyu that pairs perfectly with the charred bun, sourced from the town of Sungai Golok (down on the Malaysian border). The simple but super-tasty handful is topped off by a tangy, tomato-based housemade sauce.
Prices start at B99 for a regular pork burger and B119 for beef, while you can go large with the Double Monster (two cheese patties with super crispy bacon, caramelized onion and Jamie’s special sauce, B189/219).
In addition to burgers, they also serve an ever-changing variety of steaks at a range of price points, from Australian wagyu tomahawk to USDA ribeye.
