Bangkok was one of my latest trip for this year. One of a place that recently open up my eyes on how much they have change since I last visit them 2 years ago. Its a whole new ball game now where I am so impress over it, till I touch down in a while ago. Beef & Shake is one of a random shop that we went into for quick bite as the street food in front of the hotel (I Residence Hotel Silom) did not open.
Beef & Shake just establish 3 months ago and had gain its popularity among all the office workers in the area. Just like any other burger joints that is similar like a fast food chain concept, just that everything is cook fresh. How the history grew was quite interesting where they were one a pop up store in those famous night market, moving from one event to another event such as Artbox, K-Village and others, that now landed them operating this shop right below at Chong Nonsi BTS station.
One of their signature stack up is this vegetarian burger Crispy Portobello Mushroom
While waiting for our food, we kick of with their signature cheezy fries @ 95 Bhat. Cheese is creamy enough, yet not too salty and sprinkle with fresh cheese flakes on the top. The best part is their chili sauce. Do dip along with it as the chili sauce do have hint of herbs, garlic and mild spicy end.
Here comes their house signature burger as one is not enough, so we order their signature stack up. Double Beef Burger with Cheese & Bacon (as they use 100% Australia natural beef) @ 289 Bhat. You get to choose, medium rare, medium or medium well. So we ordered medium well.
AS we cut open the patties, it surprise s as it cook to perfection – medium rare. This burger is so good that we keep expressing that one of the best that we come across. Easily beat any of the burger joint we have in KL. On the first bite, it gives you the layer of taste that you need from juicy beef patty flavour which is not too dry yet just nice enough to capture a great patty being used, follow by bacon flavour that ooze out from the patty as it is not the oily taste but the fragrant of it just sips in, along with crispy crunch,great cooking method and lastly with a great combination of mild salty cheeze that blows at the end. Indeed it is a great burger!
In Bangkok how can we miss out their pork range of burger. After the satisfaction from their beef, we decided to place an order to try out their pork – Double Pork Burger with Cheese & Bacon. This takes about 10 minutes to cook it as pork uses longer time frame. Similiar to the taste of beef where patty did not overcook, yet juicy and fragrant, the only best part is they add in coleslaw to balance up the taste, that gives you the crunchy bite of it. Perfecto!
Before we went off, since we ordered both their best and owner introduce us to order their milkshake which is famous too. We started again with only one to test out their quality which is their best seller Banofee Milkshake @ 145 Bhat. Thick enough to give you a punch in the flavour, as he use 5 scoops of ice cream to made it up and owner secret homemade banana puree at the side. It is so good that we ended up their Green Tea Milkshake for takeaway @ 145 Bhat. Green tea is refreshing where can taste the strong matca yet not too overpowering and balance up with the fresh powder form on the top to give the refreshing bit.
Before we leave Bangkok, we drop by again to this shop for last meal before flying off. It is indeed that good! Highly recommended.
