Cast Iron Burgerhaus

DSC06201

Cast Iron burgerhaus is a recently opened burger place near BTS Aree station. Offering burger, craft beer and milkshake which seems like a trend nowadays. Still, hearing about thick cut bacon and dry-aged burger patty sounds interesting for me and I went for a little adventure.

First of all, I always despise tall chair in restaurant which does not feel comfortable and seems like a challenge when intoxicated. (Not sure if it reminds me when I’m young on a baby seat and have no control over what to eat) However, tall table and chair in this place are well-balance with sufficient area so it’s a good experience for me.

Bacon Cheeseburger – Patty, double cheddar cheese, thick-cut bacon, balsamic ketchup

First of all, I look for patty juiciness and seasoning. Both are well-prepped. I would say that the juiciness of patty are quite satisfying for me. Bacon adds a little crunch and balsamic ketchup provide a little sourness kick for appetizing feeling. Another advantage of simple burger is that there is no fall out components and resulted in less messy finished plate.

Steak cut fries with paprika texture are firm and a little bit soft texture. Personally, I like to size the fries like this and paprika is an interesting choice for a flavor.

Onion rings – Good onion rings, a little bit too much for 2 persons from my personal experiences haha.

Pork chops steak (300 g) – free range and herb-fed local high welfare pork

To be honest, the visual of this plate are stunning comparing to my recent pork chops in Thailand. Sous-vide cooked pork chops are tender and firm with well-balance seasoning. Served with Jeaw(spicy) and Chimichurri sauce. In my opinion, Jeaw sauce could be more spicy and it could bring more excitement to this plate. Mashed potatoes are quite enjoyable too.

Overall, the place are quite interesting and the bill came out around 900 THB which seems reasonable for the meal. The staff and owner are attentive. Making this one interesting burgerhaus to visit in Aree.

Chicken OLIO

Fried chicken with sweet & sour sauce. At first, I have my doubt that the chicken could be too hard & sweet like as many of the place. The chicken came out as a perfect appetizer to prepare me for pasta & pizza. Chicken texture are crispy outside and soft inside. Seasoning of sweet & sour are well-balanced. Would definitely order again when I got the chance.

LINGUINE AGLIO E “OLIO” PEPERONCINO With Bacon

Linguine are prepped at a perfect texture. Bacon size are thick which reminds me of popular thick bacon size when I’m in Japan. Olive oil proportion are just right and make Linguine not too oily. Topped with balanced seasoning, this menu just became one of the best pasta I’ve had in Bangkok.

PENNE PUTTENESCA

Well-prepped Penne texture. The sauce leans toward tomato flavor with olive and anchovy.

TOM YUM Seafood Black Pizza

A touch of Tom Yum spice flavor. Still, the spiciness are still far away for real Tom Yum though. Pizza texture are thin & crispy with sweetness from shrimp, squid and lime sourness. An interesting choice for a fusion menu.

Cheese Cake with raspberry sauce

Smooth cheesecake texture and moderate sourness from raspberry. Added with crunchiness from surrounding bits as an amazing dessert.
