Few would imagine chili cheese fries as a fine-dining appetizer, but Bachi Burger dresses up this lowbrow American classic with sweet ox-tail meat chili, bright green rings of sliced peppers, and a sunny-side-up egg, turning what was formerly known as a gloppy mess reserved Continue reading Desert Companion

ATMOSPHERE: Bachi Burger is located just a few miles south of the Las Vegas Strip. The atmosphere was sit-down casual with a modern feel. The inside had a clean and contemporary design Continue reading Food smackdown

Bachi’s menu reads as if Harold and Kumar are in the kitchen doing bong hits. Of the six whacked-out burgers on offer, the highlight is an homage to the Vietnamese banh mi, blending beef, pork, shrimp, and pork pâté with pickled Continue reading Travel + Leisure

Bachi Burger Expands their Empire

Wise diners know it’s best to wait a few days or weeks to check out the restaurant that just opened in the neighborhood.

“Fusion,” or even “Asian fusion,” can mean a whole bunch of different things, a lot of which are tantamount to confusion and a lot of which aren’t good.

Which is so not the case at Bachi Burger.

No offense to the Bachi-ites, but it seems so obvious on the face of it that I don’t know Continue reading LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

Bachi does burgers better

By Jet Tila

What do you get when one of Roy Yamaguchi’s top guns decides to leave the coop and setup a cool burger joint with the help of some talented family and fellow co-workers? You get Bachi Burger!
