Our burger shop is called Paper Butter because we used to bake cakes and draw faces on them by order – it was like the cake surface was our paper. We quit our jobs 8 years ago and moved to Ari not really knowing what we were going to do. We just loved this area. We found a rental spot behind the famous barbershop in Soi 1, but we were clueless as to what we were going to sell. Then we thought, these gentlemen waiting to have their hair cut – perhaps they’d enjoy a burger? So we learned to make great burgers from scratch. We started doing this just before burger trucks became popular.

When we got our place here in The Yard, we cut down some banana trees growing here and built this shop. It’s been almost a decade since we opened. We have met so many people – both Thais and foreigners. Many come and go. When we’re sad or bored, we just hang out here with our customers. It’s great!”
