Hooked on Low-carb Burgers

Known as a go-to place for juicy charbroiled burgers, Carl’s Jr. is a renowned burger brand from the United States’ west coast that has been treating Thais to the authentic California burger for over six years now. Carl’s Jr. has become a familiar name for all burger lovers in Thailand.

Carl’s Jr. has just introduced a new “Low Carb” menu that makes it possible for customers to switch to a healthier option at no extra cost.

Nimesh Acharya, business manager of Carl’s Jr., said that a simple switch can make a lot of difference.

“All Carl’s Jr. burgers have the option to go low carb by swapping the bun for a refreshingly crisp iceberg lettuce leaf, and by doing so, each dish can reduce your carb intake by 48 grams and save 200 calories. Even with the iceberg lettuce swap, all Carl’s Jr. burgers keep their juiciness and authentic taste through charbroiled premium Australian beef and original ingredients in each burger menu,” he says.

The first healthy menu item is Carl’s Jr. Guacamole Bacon Burger (THB 220) made with nutritious ripe avocados, aromatic garlic and fresh tomatoes, onions, coriander and lime juice. Besides over 20 different vitamins and minerals as well as loads of fiber, the guacamole burger also has rich chargrilled beef and bacon flavors that will please the palate of any meat lover .

For something a bit lighter, try Low Carb Chicken Club (THB 129), which comes with only 350 calories. The delicious chargrilled chicken breast provides a huge amount of protein at 36g, which helps keep pangs of hunger at bay a bit longer and there is a saving of 200 calories from forgoing the bun. Worth trying is Chargrilled Chicken Salad (THB 119) made from lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, grated carrot, and cabbage to ensure all the necessary vitamins, minerals and fiber with only 280 calories but with 32g of protein.

Carl’s Jr. plans to offer more choices to satisfy the lifestyle needs of health-conscious consumers while they still enjoy the authentic enriched flavors at the same price.

“We are thrilled to offer a wider range of options for Thai people,” said Nimesh, adding, “We want our customers from all walks of like to come to a Carl’s Jr. restaurant and be able to order something of their choice from our menu. Customers will love our healthier options as we have worked hard to deliver affordable yet premium, high-quality and fresh menu items.”

Carl’s Jr. has plans to expand its network to 10 restaurants across Thailand within 2019. For Carl’s Jr.’s special offers and promotions, visit
