The first burger I ever ate was a Big Mac at McDonald's@Section 14, Petaling Jaya. That was on the last day of my SPM exam. When was that, eh? My God, so long ago hah..hah... 1983! (I actually checked my SPM certificate to confirm the year).
The McDonald's treat was courtesy of my aunt, my mum's eldest sister. Up to today, I am ever grateful to her for all those treats that she gave us.
Well, that Big Mac was fantastic to me but I never got to eat at McDonald's again (until I left home) because my parents never took us to any of these fast food outlets (except one takeaway at KFC). So I was kind of "deprived" hah..hah...
Fast forward many years later, I used to indulge in KFC@Kajang during my years at UKM and when I started working, McDonald's was one of my favorite hangouts. It was like I was making up for all those lost years.
Then I discovered Carls' Junior and Burger King and as I grew older, no, my love for burgers did not change.
This Salted Egg Burger was consumed after a particularly exasperating incident on a weekend. Though I was not really in a mood for burger, it did pacify my mood.
And because I love burgers, I returned for the Double Cheese Burger.
But I only enjoyed the awesome sweet potato fries. I haven't been back to this place again.
And then there's MyBurgerLab. Thank God for Grabfood, now I can enjoy burgers without having to go to the restaurant.
This is how it comes (in a plastic bag), the burger and fries in a cardboard box. I don't care for soft drinks but this comes in a set.
This is the Beautiful Mess. It was messy all right, but I loved it. Very fresh and soft charcoal buns, juicy beef patty, yummy deep fried mushrooms, crispy cheese and runny egg.
The fries were still warm and crispy when delivered.
Then I had The Bomb.
Very hot and spicy!
And finally, I just had to try this.
The Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang. It did not arrive in pristine condition. The bottom of the bun was soaked in egg yolk and sauce.
It was so messy, I couldn't take a better photo. Besides, my cat was all excited, trying to get some from me. Nope! No sharing hah...hah...
But I tell ya, this one is good. So good. The rendang sauce was spot on and there were crunchy ikan bilis in there and some peanut sauce. The chicken burger was big and juicy and it was worth the price and the mess. I will order this one again.
Then I noticed this "nutrition facts" under the box. Why would anyone bother with nutrition facts for a burger? Mad or what?
Then I realized these guys have a lot of humor hah...hah....
Well, this is one of my weekend indulgence and thank you Lord that I can afford burgers. Amen.
