Best burger in town
So many restaurants in Vientiane claim to have the best burger in town but Ray’s Grille could very well take the crown.
The joint is casual, the menu is small but it packs a punch with all the best comfort food: Philly cheese steak sandwich, quesadilla, enormous Cobb Salad, falafel and their famed burger, made with imported beef grilled on the barbecue out front.
The standard burger comes with bacon and cheese on a sesame seed bun, fries and salad. The burger is enormous and you can choose other toppings, including blue cheese or a la Aussie with beetroot and fried egg. All burgers are 44,000 to 52,000 kip.
Ray’s Grille is now located at the western edge of the downtown core. Head west on on Setthathirath past Khunboulom towards Wind West Bar. There are plastic tables out front or you can eat inside. The decor is plain, the lighting poor and there is zero ambience, which probably explains why most people do take away. We only wish the place had a pub atmosphere than local eatery – we’re sure it’d be packed for the food.
