No Name Bangkok

There are a lot of places to get good steak in Bangkok. My most memorable ones were at Arno’s, and Jamie’s Burgers.

I remember having to reserve Arno’s days in advance and even to arrive half an hour before your reservation, just so that you could head to the butchery to choose your favorite steak parts. Right now their branches are everywhere and to be honest, their standards have dropped significantly. I recently had their Hokkaido scallop pasta which was something nice for a change.

Jamie’s Burgers was a humble little corner beside a futsal court. It was kind of in the middle of nowhere and totally inaccessible by public transport. I have dined at Jamie’s Burgers on 3 different occasions and their standards are pretty consistent.

No Name has been around for a couple of years now but it only got popular recently due to more check-ins on Instagram. I decided to pay them a visit one Friday evening and surprisingly I was able to walk in with no reservations made.

The menu is pretty simple. You start at the top with 4 different types of steak to choose from. I went for the wagyu flat iron because it seemed like the wisest choice to make. Then you move down the menu and choose your toppings, sauces and sides.

For the toppings, I had both the uni and foie gras. Cafe de Paris for my sauce and truffle mash potato as my side.

It turned out to be a pretty good combination.

The steak was good on its own, and the foie gras melts on the tongue. It was perfect. My only gripe is that the meal wasn’t filling enough and I am not even a big eater.
