Following a months-long experiment, Cast Iron Burgerhaus – located in Bangkok’s hip Ari neighborhood – recently launched a set of fancy, truffled burgers, and they look … intense.
Customers can order the truffle toppings as freshly shaved summer black truffles, truffle mascarpone cheese, or truffle vinaigrette, which is paired with rocket salad and a thick, dry-aged beef patty.
The creamy truffle version is available for THB420, which is certainly on the pricier side for a burger – but not totally cost prohibitive.
Truffle is the fruiting body of a fungi (therefore often considered a mushroom) and is one of the world’s most expensive natural foods.
Some people hate truffles and regard their aroma as stinky, and find the flavor off-putting, while others go gaga for the stuff. In any case, the haters never stop chefs from findings ways to use the expensive fungi in their dishes.
Cast Iron Burgerhaus opened back in 2017 and is known for its dry-aged beef patties and rich, creamy milkshakes. They also serve beer on tap.
The American-style burger joint sits on the first floor of Noble Reform building on Soi Phahon Yothin 7, and can be reached by foot from BTS Ari’s exit No. 3.
