The limited-edition sandwich was launched on Sunday. It retails for 109 Thai dollars ($3.14), which is a bargain compared to the standard cost of 338 dollars ($10.95) for cheeseburgers.
Customers can also order additional cheese if they need more slices – 20 baht for two pieces.
A food writer Richard Barrow tried the burger and wrote: “A trend in Thailand is to use cheese on practically everything. Then Burger King joined in with the authentic cheeseburger. Although I believe they’ve forgotten the meat.
“I love cheese, but I was struggling to eat even a small portion of this burger. Perhaps it’s time to grill the second portion? What are your thoughts?” he wrote.
