Burger Club in Bishkek

Burger Club
150a Chui Prospect
Meals for around $3

At some point during everyone’s time in Bishkek they are going to think to themselves, “Wow I really want American fast food, like maybe a Burger King.” Well, that’s honestly impossible unless you’re willing to drive to Almaty, Kazakhstan. The good news is, however, there are equivalents in Bishkek. Foremost of which is Burger Club, a small Canadian fast food restaurant roughly 10 minutes from the main square. Easily accessible, incredibly cheap (at round $3), and decent enough to satiate a fast-food fix, I’ve visited Burger Club a fair amount during my time here in Bishkek. Nothing about it is particularly remarkable, but it does exactly what it needs to: deliver a cheap, americanesque burger experience. If you go there I recommend the King Burger, which is surprisingly massive considering its price.
