Burger Bliss at Frost

When blogger Jim “Burger” Boyce tells us he has a new favorite hamburger in Beijing, we listen. That’s what first drew us to Frost’s burger, and it’s our favorite now, too.

At RMB39 (plus RMB3 for cheese), it’s an affordable classic. The ground beef is marinated simply with salt and pepper but comes out with a lasting flavor and perfect texture. Owner and chef Jeff Powell creates this delectable patty by mixing both local and Australian beef. The bun is not your typical sesame bun, but actually an English muffin.

“It’s the only bread that holds up the burger properly,” says Powell, and we love how its nooks and crannies soak up the burger juices. The perfectly grilled burger comes with all the classic add-ons, including lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles, and it’s also served with a side salad, dressed with a home-made lemon vinaigrette, which Powell told us is made with a special variety of lemon that is readily available in China but extremely expensive in the States.

But the clincher is the condiments: choose from ketchup, mustard, mayo or our favorite, the yellow Hainan chili habanero sauce. We look forward to Powell’s new restaurant next door—Back Alley Bistro, scheduled to open this month.
