Serving up the same tasty burgers, even further away

Mike’s Burger House – best known for producing good burgers but being slightly inconveniently located – has opened a second restaurant at another even more out-of-the-way spot.

Located at the base of Camko City’s grey and pea green Secret Garden condo development on Angkor Boulevard, the new Mike’s Burger House plates up the same much-loved US diner-style burgers ($3.50) as the original.

That means more fresh buns, crispy lettuce, ripe tomatoes, decent beef patties and gooey melted American cheese.

Owner Mike Chenda Im, 54, said he opened the original Mike’s Burgers on Russian Boulevard nearly five years ago because the location was easily accessible by car or moto and had plenty of parking.

He said he opened the Camko City location, north of Tuol Kork, last month for much the same reasons.

“I found a lot of my customers were coming from that area,” he said. “It’s a convenient and open area, there’s not much traffic and plenty of parking.”

He said he had sent his long-time chef over to Camko City and worked there most evenings himself to ensure quality didn’t slip.

Now, with an overpass on Russian Boulevard already creating traffic problems at the original location, Im is planning to open a third restaurant in a two-storey building at the PTT service station about 200m east on the same road. The grand opening is scheduled for March 1.

He said the under-construction overpass at Kim Il-sung/Mao Tse Toung Boulevard – which will go over his original restaurant – would make access difficult.

“If we still have business coming to the original restaurant when the overpass is finished then we’ll keep it open, but if not then we’ll close it up,” he said.

Mike’s Burgers’ new outlet can be found in Building SMC 122, Angkor Boulevard, Camko City.
