A Minor Place – Plaza Damas, Hartamas – PORK BURGER!

Happy Sunday all! ๐Ÿ™‚
While I’m not sure about the rest of you, my weekends are generally scheduled for food hunts, may it be in KL or further. ๐Ÿ˜€

Today I finally had time to drop in at A Minor Place, an outlet that serves swine-ful delights that includes a mean pork nasi lemak and pork burger. It’s my mission to eat every pork burger in town so yes, I had my radar aimed here for a while!

A Minor Place, plaza damas hartamas (1)

I was so hungry and lazy that I only took pictures of my pork burger before tucking in! :DD My dining partners ordered the Aglio Olio and a Pork Chop each. More on those 2 dishes later but it was really the Pork Burger that’s worth the visit.

I daresay this is one of the rare pork patties that has attained an almost perfect texture.ย  It has good structure; firm yet not overly dense. It retained its juiciness within (do note that could be due to the fact that I specifically requested for medium rare), and was perfectly pink with a nice, crisp outer shell.ย  The flavour was balanced and most of its taste came from the meat, rather than any strong seasonings.

Slap on a runny egg and I was biting into an ambrosial ensemble ofย  a most satisfying burger! All for RM18.50 + 10%ย (additional charges applies for the egg) ย ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a good weekend everyone and let’s root for Dato Lee Chong Wei tonight for the OLYMPIC GOLD!!


Here’s the Aglio Olio (switch from chicken to pork bacon) – RM16.50. One of the worst pasta I had this year. Bland and not even al-dente. I was actually quite cheesed off. ๐Ÿ™

Pork Chop – RM24.50.

Not as tender as I would like, but that could be to the fact that we forgot to request for medium rare. The meat slabs could do with a little more marination though. The portion is huge for the price so there were no complaints from the owner of the dish ๐Ÿ˜›

There’sย sauerkraut, cauliflower, broccoli, lettuce and tomatoes under all that meat and I must concur with KC that the apple sauce was quite nice.

They serve Bristot coffee here. Here’s a cuppa for RM8.00.

KC ordered a Mandarin Lychee ย (RM13.00)ย but got what was like a limau panas for RM13+!!! There were no ice (as requested by KC because he has flu) but neither were there lychees. Would YOU pay RM13+ for this?

Overall verdict?
The mains were quite decent but personally I would only recommend the pork burger. Do ask for medium rare if you like your meat pink like me. Add an egg too for extra creaminess! ๐Ÿ™‚
