As promised I’m posting on the latest creations of Burger Junkyard – The Blue Paranormia (with blue cheese), Swedish Alps and Mango Whatzapp-bi. My 2nd trip review was just published this morning so you can check out the other 5 burgers we had HERE. So far, we are doing quite well as we are almost done with the whole of their menu! :DD
There has been improvements and I’m happy to say that the positive changes certainly made Burger Junkyard an outlet worthy of revisits. Their fries are pretty satisfying now, non-greasy and with skin. Their tomato concasse still rocks; fresh, tangy and sweet and there’s a new brown sauce (demi-glace) that comes with the burgers now.
Just a note of warning though, don’t hasten yourself to try their Fried Country Mushrooms (RM6.90) as yet for I find it incredibly greasy still.
But do hop in for some stinky action; the Blue Paranormia (RM18.90); creamy, molten pungent blue cheese on a great beef patty. Quoting Kevin ” My affair with this is like a steamy wet makeout session, where you know it’ll be messy but it doesn’t matter.”
Damn it Kevin, now I can’t think of blue cheese without thinking of sex and vice versa. What a quote!
Moving on to less “steamy” burgers, my Mango Whatzapp-bi has an interesting combo of both patty and sausage. Thankfully it was those white meaty sausages that I like, and not those cheap, red rubbery kind. At first I had a hard time detecting the mango wasabi dressing but I eventually discovered that it was overpowered by the cheese.
At parts of the burger where it wasn’t blended with the cheese, the wasabi mango dressing was fruity sweetness and stinging heat at the same time. I even started dipping my fries in it, though sadly there wasn’t much to go around.
Mango Whatzapp-bi (RM18.90)– Mango Wasabi Dressing, Gourmet Chicken Sausage, Tomatoes, Green Corals.
Thumbs up for the fries now too!
The Swedish Alps (RM18.90) was created in reference to IKEA swedish meatballs. It comes smothered in lingonberry jam, and interestingly; topped with a hashbrown.
I loved it and wished there was more lingonberry compote. Imagine rich, savoury demi-glace, thick sweet jam coupled with crispy hashbrown and a juicy beef patty in every bite. The alliance of flavours as you chew. Damn it’s good!
Kevin wouldn’t share, so I had to keep stealing bites of it from him!
I noticed too that the texture of the patty has improved much though they insisted that it was the same. It is now less dense with looser granules of meat compared to the one I had in my first visit, and thus juicier.
See how it was months back? So compact? This was the Brooklyn Burger from my first visit by the way.
The last we had is the Balsamic Beefing Onions (RM19.90), one of the very first burgers of Burger Junkyard.
Balsamic love. 🙂
We had to send back the first one as it was pretty burned.
But the one they replaced for us was prefect. I love the Balsamic Beefin Onions and I have always recommended it to those who are first timers of Burger Junkyard. The sweet onion relish, the cheese, the sweet slightly tart beetroot, the balsamic – an unusual combo and may be even complicated for some palates, but that’s precisely why it’s worth a try.
We are the foodies!
Keep up the good work Burger Junkyard! 🙂
