Best Cheeseburger in Ulaanbaatar

Being a gentleman of, shall we say, more fulsome figure, eating seems to have been a prominent part of my life. Travelling a lot has meant many meals in hotels. Business has resulted in even more restaurant meals. After a while, though, what Thomo really craves is simple food, the sort of stuff you’d cook at home. Be that a humble chicken sandwich or just a bowl of soup and fresh bread. Travelling can get tiring food-wise after a time. By the time you’ve got to your third Duck l’Orange or Pheasant Under Glass it is all starting to taste the same.

To counteract the Michelin Star Blues, I generally ensure that I try a cheeseburger in every country I travel to (along with the search for the perfect cappuccino of course). So far, the best I have encountered in Ulaanbaatar are at:

  • California – A US style restaurant and bar on Seoul Street. The cheeseburgers here have a combination of quality (good meet, cheese and supplementary items) as well as quantity (recommendation is to start eating the cheeseburger first then come back to the chips).
  • Dave’s Place – Where the beer is, of course, X-cellent. Dave does a quite reasonable cheeseburger too.
  • Millies – Smaller that California’s (and also a little cheaper too for that matter), Millies’ cheeseburgers are a good lunch from time to time.

Mongolia does not have any McDonald’s, Burger Kings or the like, so there is no problem defining a good cheeseburger here.

    Late Breaking Update – It was reported to me today that the nightclub, Strings, does a pretty mean cheeseburger. Saddle up the mules, Baagi, it is time we headed out for another burger 🙂 We will, of course, update the list if indeed the Strings Cheeseburger turns out to be as good as it is supposed to be.
