Right beside Sunflower bakery on Jalan Tanjung Bungah is this gourmet burger place. Catering to Penangites' increasing appetite for more refined hamburgers, this place offers homemade burger patties at generous portions with their largest being a whopping 160 grams in weight. Their burger patty range from good ol' beef, chicken and ostrich that is sandwiched in either charcoal bun, English muffin, poppy seed bagel or whole wheat bun.
A serving of burger starts from RM9 and comes with a side of curried fries. If their portions are not enough to satisfy your hunger, an order of onion rings at RM8 or an extra dose of cheese and fried egg atop your already sky-high burger for a small fee, might hit the spot.
The fillings for The Hamburger
Their menu of six choices is surprisingly chicken-happy. It includes the New Yorker which is a grilled jumbo chicken sausage with sauerkraut, the Yakuza char grilled teriyaki chicken fillet with sautéed shiitake mushrooms and pulled chicken club sandwich. We choose the pulled chicken in a charcoal bun at RM9.50 only to discover the chicken’s savoury flavours are pretty good, the pulled, stringy meat itself is moist and the portion is substantial.
There are two choices of beefy burgers here but the one that will catch the eye is their The Hamburger that is simultaneously fun, large, familiar and rather American. It may seem a tad insurmountable at first glance but press down the grilled 160 gram beef patty slathered in barbecue sauce, a perfectly fried egg, grilled chicken ham, cheddar cheese and crispy onions and you’ll be able to fit a bite in without unhinging your jaws!
The service is friendly here
The Hamburger is totally worth every sen of its RM13.50 price because not only will it satisfy your hamburger craving but it will certainly be a most memorable burger dinner you’ve had in a long time.
This place is very popular on Friday and Saturday. So, avoid these two days if you don’t want a long wait for your order. There are also tables and chairs for you to eat in and parking is convenient since there's a side road right off the main road. Kitty Kaye
