Phuket’s Shake Shack-style burgers hit Sukhumvit.
Halfway between Asoke and Phrom Phong, this joint not only bears a logo similar to beloved NY-based burger chain Shake Shack, it also busts out remarkably familiar-looking smashed patties in a narrow space fitted out with patterned tiles and black brick walls.
Burgers (all B245 single/B295 double/B375 triple) are stylized by city, from the classic New York (Australian beef, cheese, onions, pickles, ketchup and mayo) to the Dubai (chicken, cheese, lettuce, onions, tomato, Prime sauce) and the Tokyo (deep-fried fish, lettuce, tomato, cheese, onions, tartar sauce). Meanwhile, at the shop’s island-dwelling mother branch, the Stockholm (beef, cheese, pickled red onions, pickles, tomato, lettuce, Prime sauce), boasts being the winner of “Phuket’s Best Burger 2019.”
Veggies can opt for the halloumi-based Aiya Napa, while vegans are covered with the Beyond Meat burger (from B245). Sides range from waffle fries (B130) to chili-cheese poppers (B110) and Caesar salads (B110).
