My Burger Lab Sunway - Burger With A Passion - Bandar Sunway Petaling Jaya Food

What has Ultraman, Animal and Yellow Submarine have in common? These are  names of burgers that are served at My Burger Lab. Recently BestRestaurantToEat went for a burger feast at My Burger Lab Sunway Cafe which is located at 3, Jalan PJS 11/9, Bandar Sunway, 46150 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

My Burger Lab has been dishing out their specialty burgers for more than 3 years; each burger that comes out of the lab has unique characteristics that will tantalize your taste-bud i.e. from spicy, sweet, savory and all that special flavors and taste.

Now, at My Burger Lab, it is not only about burgers as they have also developed special appetizers to start your meal with and desserts to end your meal too. So, you can really have a complete full course.

We had the opportunity to taste the first starters which were the special Sloppy Fries 2.0 (RM13.50). The Fried fries with skin on are fried to a crisp and laden with Sloppy Chicken which has a slightly spicy paprika flavor and topped with a runny sunny side up eggs.  A simple fries with a character.

For the greens, customers can choose the Magikarp Salad (RM13.50); comes with fresh garden salad which has Smoke Salmon with crunchy charcoal croutons and topped with a tomago like boiled eggs with a Honey Italian dressing. The salad also has sprinkles of pumpkins seeds to give a different bite texture to the salad.

For Burgers, we started with the Ultraman 3.0 Burgers (RM18.80). Why it is called the Ultraman Burgers; in Cantonese Ultraman is called the "Ham Tang Chew Yan" - which literally means Salted Egg Yolk Super Man; no wonder this burger is coated with a generous luster of salted eggs sauce on a piece of fried crispy chicken thigh which is marinated with kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass and served with lettuce. A must for fans of salted eggs yolk.

This is then followed by the A+ Burger (RM16.00); which is a piece of sous vide thick chicken breast (this cooking method ensures the meat juices are intact) and is then grilled and slapped with cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, shitake and enoki mushrooms.

The third burger that we had is the Swiss Take Burger (RM16.00), we like the natural taste of the sauteed shitake and enoki mushroom which is flavored with oyster sauce and blended with the cheesy taste of the Swiss cheese. For those that still loves a meatless burger; this will be a great choice.

Our second last burgers were the Kick In The Face 2.0 (RM18.90). We really like this burger as the taste of the Jalapenos and red onions gave a slightly spicy taste to the thick beef patties which were sandwiched with Horseradish Mayo and Green Pepper Relish to give a hint of slight vinaigrette taste to the overall burger.

The last burger for the night is the Animal Burger (RM13.90)  Not in the standard menu but can be ordered if there are any. This burger has a mustard-grilled patty with slices of onion and topped with a special in-house secret recipe sauce.

You can either paired your burgers with a Root Beer (RM9.50). This Root Beer is the Original Stewards Root Beer that comes with a glass bottle.

or choose the good old American style where you paired it with a Milk Shake. For us, we tried the Peanut Butter Milk Shake (RM13.90) and the Oreo Milkshake but my vote is on the Peanut Milkshake.

Lastly for desserts, we had the Lava Brownie (RM15.90). The chocolate brownie is served in a warm pan and topped with 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream. The chocolate brownies are baked with almond nuts and served with a sizzling sauce.

Buns and Meat Restaurant Lakeside Sungei Besi – Gourmet Burger & Hot Dog Restaurant Review

This review is strictly for Pork Fan and Lovers. Best Restaurant To Eat was invited to review this Porklicious restaurant i.e. Buns and Meat Restaurant located at Ground Floor 72A, Jalan Tasik Utama 7, Lakefields, Sungai Besi, 57000 Kuala Lumpur.

Buns and Meat is a Non-Halal restaurant that serves gourmet pork burgers, hot dogs, pizza and pasta with pork as the centrepiece ingredient. 

Catering to the non-muslim customers, it also serves alcoholic drinks like beer, wine and hard liquor. 

The décor is one of a simple and casual open concept where customers can enjoy the pipe-in music; serenading in the background as you feast on the sumptuous pork meal. There is a small stage that can host singing performances or live music band.

We started the food review with the gourmet pork burger series. The bun of the burger with the special recipe which has a very strong buttery aroma, soft, fluffy and smooth texture (i.e. you can even eat it on its own) are tailored baked for Buns and Meat.

The thick pork patties with bacon and sauce are each made in-house by its own chef creation that gives a meaty and flavourful taste to each bite of the burger. Each burger set comes with a serving of French fries and mini serving of macaroni pasta.

The first of the burger that we had was the Char Siew Burger – It comes with a layer of succulent pork patty, cheesy melted cheese and topped with a generous serving of BBQ Char Siew. For those that love; Char Siew, this burger will be a good selection for you.

The next burger is the Runny Mess Burger – it is a pork patty topped with a piece of grilled pork bacon, melted cheese, with poached eggs and complimented with a cheesy sauce. 

This is much like the Egg Benedict on a burger bun. The cheesy taste was perfectly matched with the pork patties, slightly salty pork bacon and silky runny eggs.

Next, was the Black Pepper Pork Burger.

And the last burger was the Spicy Korean Ribs Burger. The pork rib are first cooked to a soft texture and then deboned – ready to be served. The sauce has a slight spicy, sweet and smoky taste. 

After the burger, this was followed by the gourmet German Hot Dog. According to owner Mr Robin, the skin of the sausage; are from the lamb, which has a firmer texture that gives a solid delight when biting into it. The sausage meat has a bouncy and springy texture; hallmark of a good quality German sausage.

The first hot dog was the Hot Dog with Jalapenos BBQ Slaw – it is a pork sausage served with topping of coleslaw, mustard sauce, finely chopped jalapeno and a sprinkle of fresh cut scallion and served with fries and Ham Salad.

Next, was the Mac and Cheese Hot Dog – the pork sausage is drenched with macaroni cheese and fried crispy chicken bits.

Followed by Hot Dog With Nacho Cheese Sauce – a pork sausage topped with cheesy and tomato based sauce, with pieces of nachos crunch.

And the Hot Dog With Bacon and Baked Beans.

and the final hotdog; which is the Hot Dog With Sauteed Mushroom and Black Pepper Sauce. 

The use of the Shimeji Mushroom added a new dimension to this Hot Dog. I find it pretty interesting combination; but nevertheless after tasting all the other Hot Dog earlier, I would say, this has to be my number one in terms of taste.

Other than burger and hot dogs, the pork ribs are one of the favourite offering at Buns and Meat Lake Side Sg Besi. There are 2 version of grilled pork ribs that are being offered. The first of which is the Spicy Korean Pork Ribs which was grilled enough to be flavourful without tasting the carbon. The meat was soft and tender and gel well with the slight spicy Korean sauce.

The other grilled pork ribs is the BBQ sauce enhanced ribs; which its BBQ sauce has a slightly sweeter and smoky taste. 

For pasta, we tried the Alio-Oglio with Pork Bacon. This is for those that love an added spiciness to the pasta. The rich flavor of the pork bacon, mushroom and dried chili combined with spaghetti or penne was tasty. 

I would have preferred the Spaghetti instead of the Penne Rigate that was used for the pasta, as spaghetti tends to gel easier with the sauce.

I love French Fries eaten with tomato and chilli sauce, but at Buns and Meat, we got to try out a special twist which is the Pulled Pork Fries which has the pork ribs meat shredded with the Korean Spicy Sauce. Finger licking good. Would have preferred the sauce served in a separate dish so that we can control on how much dip we would like for each fries.

At Buns and Meat, they also serves an array of artisan handmade cake for desserts.

So, there you have it, a nice little outlet Buns and Meat at Lakeside, Sungei Besi that serves tasty gourmet burgers and hot dog.

GRAB CAFÉ Damansara Jaya Petaling Jaya Selangor – Gourmet Burger Review

Are you one of those people that love Gourmet Burgers? If you are, then GRAB CAFÉ may be the place for you to go. Best Restaurant To Eat was invited to a new menu review at GRAB CAFÉ located at No.7, Jalan SS 22/11, Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

GRAB CAFÉ @Damansara Jaya – which its acronym stands for Gourmet Ribs and Burgers underwent a renovation and a new menu offering recently. It is a simple vintage setup that exudes a family dining ambience.

It is a family run cafe that prides itself of making its own soft charcoal bun and in-house meat patties for its burgers.

We started the food review with the BULL GOING NUTS which has Beef patties, beef bacon, cheese, caramelized onion, blueberry jelly and peanut butter, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes in its filling. 

The in-house made beef patties were meaty with the right balance of fats. It does not have any gamey smell of the beef which makes eating it a tasty affair. The combination of the cheese and bacon was very balance and gives an overall feel and wholesome taste to the burger.

Next, we had the TOKYO DRIFT CHICKEN which has a piece of Chicken patty, grilled pineapple, cheese, caramelized onion, teriyaki sauce, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes.

The teriyaki sauce was sweet and savoury while the Chicken patty was very thick, succulent and was grilled enough to be flavourful without tasting the carbon. 

For Vegan, you can opt for the next burger which is HASHTAG VEGAN which consists of a patty of Fried Portobello mushroom, hash brown, cheese, homemade Grab sauce, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes.

It was a very creative way to present a delicious Vegan burger with the mushroom patties which was fried to a golden yellow crisp that gives each bite a mouthful feel.

This is then followed by the LAMB BIZKIT which has a Lamb patty, hash brown, cheese, gherkin, minted mayo, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes.

The Lamb Patty was very juicy while the accompanying minted mayo was creamy and minty, bringing out the best from the lamb while the hash brown gives a crunch to the burger.

Next, was GRAB CAFÉ signature burger which is the SPICE-UP BURGER which has Beef rib, grilled pineapple, caramelized onion, Indonesian sambal, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes.

This burger adds a new dimension with an added spice from the Indonesian sambal. The Beef Rib meats were soft and tender while eating it was easy with minimum effort. 

If burgers are not your cup of tea for a meal, you can opt for the other dish which includes the Beef Stroganoff Rice which is Fillet Mignon that was quick seared and cooked in heavy cream with mixture of gherkin, bell peppers, button mushroom and onion served with rice.

Another non-burger option will be the Fricassee which has two fried eggs, braised short ribs, sautéed potatoes, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, tomato relish served with a toast. You can have a choice of white or whole meal bread to go with this meal.

To end our review, we had the Aviator Salad i.e. Crip mesclun salad, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, poached egg coated in corn flakes and seaweed with vinaigrette dressing. 

For fish lovers you can opt for the topping to be smoked salmon while for meat lovers you can opt for the smoked chicken breast. 

The next time you yearned for a Gourmet Burger, you can just head over to GRAB CAFÉ your neighbourhood café in Damansara Jaya to satisfy your cravings.
