Esca Burgers & Shake
Here you can dig into an old-fashioned Angus patty slapped on a bun next to nostalgia-inducing sides like chocolate milkshakes and onion rings. Favorites like the Quarter Cow draw crowds, but just as many come for the custom-mixed cocktails. 112 Phra Athit Rd.; +66 87 363 2629.
This L.A. import is resolutely gourmet. Though the restaurant makes several playful nods to the patty’s plebian past—servings come wrapped in brown paper bags—these burgers are unabashedly luxe. 188 Silom Rd.; +66 2 238 1991; pullmanbangkokhotelg.com
