Crayon Burger – Subang SS15

Walking into Crayon Burger, I was first struck by how large and spacious the outlet is. Well, larger than myburgerlab and Burger Junkyard for sure.

Next was how stupid the menu is. A menu that doesn’t explain anything about the burgers; cheese? egg? onions? lettuce? I can’t tell!

Instead any explanation required would be by the cashier lady behind the counter. Which brings to question – why would you want to explain each and every burger on the menu to every customer and how would that work during peak hours? In addition to that, she manages the payment as well.
And the best part? By the time she rattled on the 4th burger, I couldn’t remember what was in the first one already.

Shaking my head in disbelief, we chose a Classic Crayon with chicken patty and a The Boss Beef, with beef patty of course.

The usual bottomless routine applies here, and even for same for the ketchup and chilli as well as well as tissues. Basically, the tables are bare.

The wait is short (thank god) and our burger arrived barely 15 minutes after our order.

At the first glance, the burgers didn’t look appetizing at all. I had thought that the colourful buns would have help in making it visually pleasing but it didn’t. Instead it looked rather pale and boring. But of course, the verdict is in the taste.

The Beef Boss – beef patty, wasabi mayo, fried egg, onion rings & Swiss cheese with vegetable bun.

Crayon Classic – chicken patty, onions and cheese.

First up, The Beef Boss. The bun doesn’t carry much flavour and wasabi mayo is very mild.

While I like how the patty is ground meat mixture and moist , the beef patty falls really short on flavour. I suspect it could be the type of beef used and frankly, it could really do with more seasoning to be palatable.

Oh, Crayon Burger has their own special sauce too; creamy and slightly sweet.

The red yeast bun is sweeter and had more flavour than the vegetable one for sure.

The chicken patty wasn’t too bad. This combination of onions, cheese and sweet tomatoes (just like the ones in myburgerlab) made it palatable enough.

The fries – pretty decent actually.

I don’t have much to say further really. All in all, it falls short of a very good burger in my books. Disclaimer –> my books.

Anyhow, that was just 2 burgers. I might return for the other ones if there’s anyone who’s game to try it. So do let me know if anyone here wants to go ok? 🙂

    I would want to go…but the burger doesn’t look appealing really…and the patty look so loose…

    1. rebeccasaw

      Maybe try other than the ones I did. I heard their Peanut butter and jam one is good though! And another is the dessert bun.

  2. Aggie

    Maybe they’re going with pastel colours to go with the “crayon” theme?
    Doesn’t look appetising though :/

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yes they are going with the theme. I love such vege and red yeast buns, i buy them from RT pastry house etc. whenever i see such “healthy” loaves. But yes, as you said, it doesnt look appetising and while that didn’t matter that much as I’m always of opinion that taste matters most, even the patty didn’t quite hit the right notes. But give them time since it’s newly opened! 🙂

    this is awesome by looking at the picture. I’m attracted to the pinky burgers. I wonder is this crayon burgers is better or myburgerlab is better??

    1. rebeccasaw

      You have to try and judge for yourself! Heheh.. that’s the best way. But for my is still myburgerlab..

      1. June Tan

        I tasted crayon burgers, I still prefer myburgerlab, the tasted are more better than crayon burgers. I feel crayon burger rather mild taste! I think the burger quite small.. lol.. but the ingredients are rather fillings

      2. rebeccasaw

        Agree June. Like I mentioned in my post, the flavour of the burger somewhat lacking. But I salute them for the buns – I really like those. and yea, pricing almost similar but smaller in size! Not satisfying like that… 😛

    Oh lovely playful colours! If only they up the flavours a notch that would be perfect!

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yes, love the buns! I’m sure they are working on improving the taste (i hope !) 🙂

  5. Mokky Mok

    The colour of the burger bun looks pale maybe because of them following the theme of pastel colours. Well I don’t really fancy burgers but wouldn’t mind to try this when I’m in SS15 =D

    1. rebeccasaw

      I don’t mind colours! In fact the making of it – using natural ingredients etc does attract me. I think it’s how they assemble the burgers – perhaps messier or somehow make it more appetizingly looking would be more attractive. But end of the day, it is the taste tht matters. And the taste is not quite there yet..

  6. sycookies

    I almost went in but none of my friends in ss15 is willing to do it. All telling me how the burgers are not worth the prices….and now…hmm…I’m not too sure.

    1. rebeccasaw

      Ah I see. So your friends have tried and they didn’t like it either then. Maybe you’ll want to try it & judge it for yourself but take your time on it, they could improve over time.
