Picking up where we left off in my 2015 article about the best burgers in Dhaka, the burger scene, since then, has grown significantly. Now, there are so many good burgers to choose from, it was pretty hard for me to narrow down to only six.
However, I did manage to enlist half a dozen of amazing burgers that I have had this year. They are listed (in no particular order) below:
# ‘Mr. Naga’ at Mr. Burger
Mr. Burger is one of the hottest new burger joints in Khilgaon. The Khilgaon area, has recently become a fast food hub, and the small burger place has turned into one of the top hangout spots for teens and young adults in this area. This is mainly because of their great burgers in a very economical pricing. The Mr. Naga burger has a great combination of Beef patty and cheese with a silky smooth yet super spicy blend of their signature hot Naga sauce.

# ‘Mini Burger’ at Shake-a-holic
The mini burgers at Shake-a-holic are perhaps one of the most popular items in Bailey Road right now. Every evening you’ll witness hundreds of customers standing in line to get a hold of these mini delights. Shake-a-holic is a takeaway burger joint. There’s no place to sit. You can either stand and have it among the bustling crowd or ask them to wrap the burgers in a silver foil for a takeaway.
Customers usually order a bunch of burgers to take home. Watching the expert chefs cook the burgers is quite a treat for the eyes. Huge amounts of marinated chicken and a large number of buns are placed on the grill and cooked to perfection.
