Ox Burger


Capitol Hill

$$$$Perfect For:LunchQuiet Meals

The best dish at Taurus Ox is the double smashburger. So it’s no surprise that the same team transformed the original restaurant into Ox Burger. (If you’re looking for Taurus Ox, they moved to 19th Ave.) The menu features multiple types of burgers, and while the Lao burger in question can do no wrong, topped with jaew bong mayo, cured pork belly, crunchy taro stem, and provolone, it’s extremely messy to eat. The Ox Burger, on the other hand, is simple with a single patty, american cheese, grilled onions, pickles, and condiments, but it’s as paper-thin as another certain commercial burger joint, and the thick bun overpowers the whole thing—so it’s best to go with the Lao burger and take precautions with your finest fabrics. Round things out with some crispy fries, and be warned that much like another certain commercial burger joint, the soft serve machine may be out of order.
