I’m off to Singapore tomorrow! 😀
It’s going to be a blast. I will be meeting and mingling with bloggers from Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines, etc in one of Singapore’s most prominent blog awards event. I’m so looking forward to improve my network and my blogging skills as there’s much to learn from everyone present there. After handling some international blogging campaigns via my company Rouge Communications, I can confidently state that blog advertising in the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Australia and other countries differs in varying degrees from Malaysia. These international bloggers has a different mindset when it comes to advertorials and blogging!
As in all things in life, improvement and change is permanent. A friend of mine recently took on bold changes in his career. From an engineer, he went on to become a videographer and the next thing I knew, he’s one of the masterminds behind a burger joint!
A cosy joint in Seapark, very near to the famous Nasi Lemak Maybank and on the same row as the “flying wan tan mee” stall, myBurgerLab is managed by young, enterprising and obviously assiduous entrepreneurs. While I’m consumed by the need to eat the best burgers available, they are obsessed with making the best burgers possible.
A lovely match I’ll say, made even better when Seapark is a mere 20 minutes drive away.
After almost 20 Ramadhan buffet reviews almost on a daily basis, I was relieved to have a night free to grab a bite here at myBurgerlab before my trip to Singapore. Strolling in at 730pm, the place was packed and the grill was busy.
The menu is simple and options are clearly explained. Should your IQ be low enough to require further explanation, a myBurgerlab “engineer” hovers nearby and chirpily offers assistance.
Beef burgers were never my favourite. Pork yes, and even lamb or chicken. Beef? They always tend to be dry and dense, unless it’s wagyu patty but wagyu is not your everyday burger! Well, not for most of us anyways.
myBurgerLab aims to make the burger eating experience right. They just want to be the joint that serves that simple, juicy but absolutely satisfying burger that’s easy on the wallet.
Being engineers, each component of the burger were analysed and experimented to their satisfaction before it hit the menu. And even after it’s on the menu, the improvements continues, with each upgraded version of burger being named 2.0, 3.0 as each time it gets an update.
Heck, this is starting to sound even better than Android! 😀
My Hangover beef burger is giving me a craving hangover now. The patty was cooked to the perfect degree of doneness, retaining its pinkish and juicy insides. Whoever who thought of drizzling maple syrup over the hashbrown is a genius! Savoury mushrooms and tangy sweet cherry tomatoes completed the ensemble. I added RM5 for fries and a soft drink and I must say the fries were so good that I nearly finished them all, to hell with diet and the no-carbs after 8pm rule!
Sniff sniff.. a foodie has got to inspect and verify the claims. A myBurgerLab staff told me the fries were tossed with rosemary herbs you see..
Passed! Yes there were rosemary in those freakinlicious fries! :DD
I couldn’t eat that much in one visit so I had to contend with only one beef and one chicken burger. For the fowl version, I opted for the Spicy Hawaiian (RM14), simply because I wondered how spicy can a chicken burger get since there weren’t any mention of chilli in its description on the board.
The first thing that hit my mind when I saw my burger was “Eh, why is the bun misshapen one??” LOL.
But all was forgiven. After all, at myBurgerLab, these engineers bakes each bun daily in-house. The buns were a bit too sweet for my liking and I’m of opinion that it wasn’t a good match with the patties but that could just be me nitpicking.
Here’s the innards of my Hawaiian Chicken burger. It was spicy but the spice was in the marinate of the chicken itself, not the orangy sauce you see below. Juicy cherry tomatoes, cheese and a thick slice of lightly grilled pineapple completes this savoury, spicy and sweet delightful burger.
Chomp chomp! Chowing down my burger and eyeing the kitchen for some secrets. 🙂
Let’s have an insight of the work area that churns out these delicious burgers shall we?
Well, it started out like this. Globs of well minced angus beef, given a few shakes of seasoning just before it meets the smoking grill.
On the grill, it was flattened out and grilled to perfect doneness.
Buns, cheese, sauces and so forth added according to order at another work area. Yup, all methodical and systematic.
Kudos to the team at myBurgerLab for the great work so far. Now, F & B business is a tiring and taxing field. Let’s hope the boys keep up the stamina and determination. I’ll like to see longer opening hours and perhaps even myBurgerLab branches in the near future! 🙂
