Shortly after my first visit, my meat loving friends wanted to head over to Burger Junkyard and I grabbed the opportunity to join them since more burger-holics means a more comprehensive tasting session of their menu!
**Do note that this particular visit was marred by very greasy fries and squid rings, so I kind of left the review in the draft for a while.
Between the 3 of us, we chowed down 5 burgers and an additional order of Squid & Fries.
I can tell you outright that the Squid & Fries (RM10.90) were a disaster; more specifically the super greasy squid rings that barely contributed any taste. We gave our feedback and the Burger Junkyard guys assured us that they would be changing supplier soon. As of a few weeks ago, Kevin has dropped in and reported that the fries are all good and thus we had recently gave them another visit because of their new burgers. Review on that right after this overdue one!
Fortunately the burgers remained satisfying.
Here’s the Brooklyn Burger – RM19.90, double beef patties (choice of single or double patties), beef bacon, grilled pineapple, tomato, onions, fried egg and Burger Junkyard housemade aioli. By the way, double here means ONE patty but double the weight (90 gram single patty and 180 gram for double), not 2 separate patties.
As observed during my first visit, the texture of the patty is the finely mince, dense version as opposed to my preferred version of loosely grounded minced patty.
And here’s the Hoola Hoop Hawaiian – Lettuce, Tomato, Smoked Turkey Ham, Grilled Pineapple, Tangy Cocktail Dressing (RM14.90).
MEATLESS: Grilled Ratatouille (RM12) – Tomato Concasse, Onions, Aubergine, Zucchini, Capsicum, Garden Salad.
A bit wet and it soaked the bun right through if you don’t wolf this down fast!
MEATLESS: Pineapple Fungi (RM13.90) – Pineapple, Portobello, Mushroom, Onions, Homemade Aioli.
Some parts of the portobello was a bit charred and the bitter burnt bits ruined the overall sweet experience of biting into a juicy portobello. Other than this slight grievance, the Pineapple Funghi was still pleasant enough if you really have to have a vege burger.
All in all, our 4 burgers above assuaged our appetite for burgers that evening. The burger combos (the buns, the patty, the sauce, the add-ons of pineapples, hams etc) does work, right up to the MEATLESS ones we ordered. So even vegetarians get to enjoy good burgers here Burger Junkyard! 🙂
My 2 hungry companions wolfed down their burgers so fast that I scarcely got a bite. Kevin has always loved Burger Junkyard’s house aioli and their tomato concasse, of which I concurred is one of their best unique selling point. This was KC’s first visit and he didn’t have much complaints.
Not quite full as yet, I added another burger to our gluttony run that night. So here’s my very own order – Buffalo Soldier (RM14.90) – celery, tomato, flavoured sour cream and Buffalo HOT sauce.
Sour cream and onions are fail-proof and this was no exception.
I really liked this one as I thought the combo was refreshing. It isn’t everyday that you’ll get sour cream and onion sauce with bits of celery in your burgers! I think this goes really with chicken too; and wouldn’t recommend changing the patty to beef.
Do note again this was sometime ago and this review serves to be my checklist on what I have had at Burger Junkyard. My latest review on their newest burgers – the Mango Whatzapp-Bi, Blue Paranomia (blue cheese!) and Swedish Alps (think IKEA meatballs and burgers!) will follow later today so stay tuned for that one! 🙂
