Top 5 Gourmet Burgers in Klang Valley? Boring. We Give You 6!
Malaysian made burgers - designed by Malaysians to suit the unique appetite for local burgers ever since Ramly became a household name for Malaysian burgers - is a hot item right now, judging from their popularity. It’s not difficult to understand why many are hooked to them; the pictures speak for themselves, of succulent meat patties with green, leafy vegetables curled up between soft buns, making up for a fulfilling meal at lunch, dinner or for the more adventurous ones, supper!.
One name that is currently hot on the lips of burger aficionados is Burger Factory. With three outlets in Kota Kemuning, SS15 Subang Jaya and Oasis Square, Burger Factory have built up quite a following with their amazing array of variety for both burger and non-burger dishes.
Their vast assortments of catering for different niches of burger fans from the meat eater’s favourite, the titanic Sumo Feast a.k.a. Champion burger (pictured above), to the slick and stylish Whatever burger for those in a rush, are worthy of a few Instagram shots before one devours into them recklessly.
The Burger Factory outlet in Oasis, Ara Damansara offers its patron a unique experience of dining. While biting into the succulent homemade meat patty, clasped by fresh charcoal buns overlooking the scenic surroundings of water and trees, one gets a feeling of quiet fulfilment within a gastronomic adventure.
Burger Junkyard, located at the cool area of the Strand, Kota Damansara has received many rave reviews from burger worshippers. We note the high quality and freshness of the meat patty in their burgers.
Equally innovative with their assortment of burgers are their menu items, from Beef In Blanket to having the Tempura Fried Portabella in their Pineapple Fungi Burger, Burger Junkyard serves all their burgers with cheese, surely a must with cheese lovers out there.
With great service and a creative wall in the interior of the restaurant, and not forgetting the cheesy, rich burgers served in this joint, one will surely walk away smiling, satisfied with a promise to return.
The Daily Grind
One of Bangsar’s greatest treasures, The Daily Grind, has been in the gourmet burger scene for quite a while, building its name with the socialites around the vicinity and growing its popularity by the positive word of mouth from its patrons.
Having received acknowledgements from many food reviewers, including from the Malaysia Tatler for being the Best Restaurant in 2013, The Daily Grind prides itself on doing things the old fashioned way.
They actually buy premium cuts of chilled imported halal meat and grind them at the premises as well as making and bottling their own range of sauces. Serving their burgers on a wooden plate, The Daily Grind gives their visitors an unforgettable feeling of meat at its finest. Their milkshakes and waffles are also to die for!
Fat Boys - The Burger Bar (non-Halal)
The Fat Boys, going by their name, is a no nonsense gourmet burger outlet. A notable feature of The Fat Boys is that their patrons can build their own burger, starting from the choice of bun (honey oat, whole meat and sesame) to the variety of patty that be can be prepared with (beef, salmon, lamb, 50/50, grilled thigh) down to the sauces (fifteen sauces altogether!).
It is the only joint that serves pork and the only non halal gourmet diner in our list. With outlets in classy areas such as Publika, Avenue K and Sky Park One City USJ, Fat Boys have a legion of loyal followers that keeps on building different tasting burgers each time they come around.
Killer Gourmet Burgers
Killer Gourmet Burgers or KGB for short, deserves to be on the pantheon of great gourmet burgers, simply because they offer more than 8 types of gourmet fries to choose from to go with their scrumptious burgers!
Its American styled decor brings a sharp Western feel but its burgers, tinged heavily with Asian flavours, is heavenly and brings the best of both worlds together.
Originally from Bangsar, they have now branched out into TTDI where they are creating a new burger excitement in the otherwise quaint area.
Brother John at Damansara Uptown is the only street burger in our list but this burger joint brings out the Malaysian burger taste into the forefront of burgerworld! Many swears this place to be the best street burger in town, beating many brands of burger bakar out there. Master Burger brings out the explorer in you, with double meat, double eggs and double cheese, and flustered with a generous portion of mayonnaise and BBQ sauce. This messy but lovely treat is one to remember!
Patience is a prerequisite when ordering at this place as there is normally a queue but all the time waiting will only serve to whet your appetite further.
