Almost hidden, this ‘gourmet’ burger stall is tucked inside a Chinese coffee shop that only operates in the day. Like most of these sort of burger stalls, their menu is pretty extensive. There are pork, beef, chicken and fish burgers from RM6 to RM15.50, and there are at least five or six combinations from which to choose. Each sandwiched between English muffin or poppy seed bagel.
Starting from the most expensive, this complicated choice holds egg, bacon, double cheese and double patties and is dubbed as ‘eat like a boss’ burger. If that doesn’t give you a cardiac arrest, we don’t know what will!
On a more sensible note, we chose their Beef Shaman between poppy seed bagel at RM9.50 and their Fish Grunt between English muffin at RM6.
Beef Shaman burger
The Beef Shaman – homemade patty well done with cheddar cheese melted over it and topped with a piece of fatty bacon – is garnished with lettuce, tomato and finely chopped onions. The overall result is average. The patty, although thick, is rather small and tastes rather ‘fatty’.
Their Fish Grunt, which is the basic fish burger, is all right as far as fish burgers go. There’s enough crunch to the fried batter that coats the fish fillet and it’s a ladylike portion with lettuce, tomato and finely chopped onions. Besides this, for non-meat eaters, you can also opt for their fish and chips.
Their saving grace is that both their buns are pretty good and dense in texture. Thick-cut French fries are at RM4 and a generous portion at that. We recommend eating in at the coffee shop dining area rather than takeaway and don’t forget to have the patties well done. Kitty Kaye
