Morganfields, Pavilion KL – Pork Burgers

Yes I know they are famous for pork ribs. But no, I didn’t order any.

That’s cos I’m a pork burger addict and I was having a major craving for pork burgers for ages, which has to be appeased pronto before I start PMS-ing on those around me.  😀

It was also thankfully one of the restaurants around that didn’t feel there was a need to play annoying festival Chinese New Year songs during this festive season, sparing me the agony of endless looping of CNY songs in my head.

The restaurant is bathed in incandescent light, perfectly suited for its intended ambiance of casual dining and drinking environment. Divided into 3 main sections; there’s an al fresco dining section outside, a bar and an indoor dining area.

There was a quite a selections of beers, perfect to go with a rack of ribs; but I’m not a beer person so it was strictly food for me that day.

We started with 2 pork burgers, of which we eventally realized to be a BIG mistake, as both essentially tasted the same though the menu’s description was deceivingly different!

Blackened Cheese & Onions Burger
Grilled with blackened seasoning and topped with cheddar cheese and sautéed onions. Leon ordered this as he wanted to try the “blackened seasoning” or “black cheese” as we were lead to believe by the fancy name.

What we got was fundamentally a cheeseburger. No black cheese or blackened cheese. As you can see from the above, my cheese was as snowy pale as it could possibly be.

If it could be of any consolation, there was a subtantial amount of black pepper in the patty. However, the seasoning barely made any difference in terms of taste, as the pepper flavour was mild. While I liked the sweet sauteed onions, Leon didn’t think it was worth a mention at all.

Here is our next burger; the Smokehouse Bacon Cheeseburger. Obviously we ordered this for the bacon and for the BBQ sauce.

The description says “Glazed with Hickory BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, sautéed onions and crispy pork bacon.”

But in the end, both patties were similar, and the only differentiating factor was the condiments that came with it.

The cheeses were the usual parmesan and cheddar, flat in taste and flavour. The BBQ burger is a BBQ burger just because it has added generic tasting BBQ sauce. Some slices of tomatoes and a few leaves of lettuce with the same sauteed onions topped off both burgers.

To conclude our experience, we didn’t enjoy our pork burgers. Obviously Leon would never step into Morganfields again, but I might still hop in for the ribs, if a pork ribs craving ever strikes. After all, a foodie has to sample other offerings on the menu at the same establishment before passing concrete judgement.
So who’s up for the pork ribs? 🙂

    1. rebeccasaw

      Ah.. Antipodean deserves another visit for that! Likewise for Morgan’s. Perhaps their ribs are the selling point, not so much their burgers.

    Kinda pricey for pork burgers. Plus if it was disappointing for you guys…I think I’ll just try the ribs whenever I’m there.

    They also gotta stop sticking a knife in the center of burgers! haha

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yups, it’s popular now you know, sticking a knife thru the burgers. I think chillis/TGIF/Chicago Ribs does that too

  7. Simple Person

  9. missyblurkit

    pork burger addict? you’re funny!

    the burgers don’t look all too promising. maybe the ribs will be better? *maybe*

  10. Sean

    yikes, i actually remember liking their pork burger (can’t recall which one exactly). i felt the patty had an interesting texture … mushy but juicy & flavorsome. but ya, hopefully you’ll enjoy their ribs instead 😀

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yes yes, I have thot that their burgers must be good considering that they are experts in porky goodness. Well, yea, time to trytheir ribs then!

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yups, just checked them out!Hmm.. the sausages are made in-house? Cos most sausages are full of processed parts/low grade meat.

      1. YummyLicious

        Hi Becky, we use premium chicken jumbo sausages made from tender chicken legs. The best and juiciest sausages that we can find in the market now

      2. rebeccasaw

        Ah ok! Low fat I hope. LOL.
