It is time that I moved beyond myBurgerLab in search of more affordable burgers that taste good.
So I scrolled my GrabFood app and found NY Burger Co. @ The Curve. Try lah, since they have 50% promo. But alas I had already exhausted my 50% quota, so I had to settle for 38%.
I selected the Empire Burger (RM27.55) which consists of 2 beef patties, 3 slices of cheese, double (beef) bacon, crack sauce, lettuce, onions, pickles and tomatoes.
What I liked is that I can just buy the burger and no extras are forced on me.
My order arrived unceremoniously in an ordinary plastic bag with the burger wrapped in aluminum foil like so.
Inside, the Empire Burger.
First thing I noticed is how ordinary it looked, pretty much like a McDonald's burger. Then I noted that the buns were in good condition, not soaked until soggy, one of my pet peeves with burger delivery.
Nyum! The taste was anything but ordinary. Pretty good because the burger patties were tasty and so were the beef bacon. I don't know what crack sauce is but it was good, something like Thousand Island dressing but not quite.
Another day, I got the Grilled Chicken Bacon Cheeseburger (RM18.01) which consists of grilled chicken, beef bacon, American cheese, crack sauce, lettuce, pickles and tomatoes.
But I was pleasantly surprised that the grilled chicken was thick, well marinated and tender. Yes, I enjoyed this chicken burger just as much.
I'm happy with both orders and though they may not be fancy specialty burgers, tastewise they were more than ordinary (in other words better than McD hah..hah...). I got RM9.50 off for the beef burger and for the chicken burger I did not qualify as the order was below RM20.00.
