Uncle Ben’s Burger Babi @ Ming Tien, Taman Megah – PORK BURGERS!!

Another Pork Burger place tried, tested & reviewed! 😉

I got to know about this place from a reader, many thanks to her for leaving a comment & attaching the FB link in one of my post; or else I wouldn’t have known about this Uncle Ben Burger Babi.

I admit I was a bit put off by the name at first; well… I mean using the word “babi” so literally! It sounded rude somehow?
But let’s ignore that for now & focus on the food instead..

When I visited the FB page, I was immediately fascinated, for it was declared on the side bar:
We’ll defy anyone to find a better meal than ours! Our meal is a perfectly balanced ensemble of 100% PREMIUM PORK patty, cooked to perfection, with oozing MELTED CHEESE and served with fine cuts of VEGETABLES. All wrapped up in a hot toasted bun.”

Wow! That’s like Uncle Ben calling out my name -” becky becky, come try my porky patty! ” Heh!

The opportunity came rather unexpected yesterday when a certain event left all of us hungry enough to eat a pig, literally. And luckily for us, Uncle Ben Burger Babi opened their 2nd outlet (stall) in Ming Tien Food Court yesterday as well! A good sign; I thought.

It was almost sold out by 9pm (it opened at 6pm) & I managed to order the last 7 of their SINGLE Pork patty with cheese burgers – Each @ RM5.50 .

I admit expectations were high, bought about from all the pork burgers I have eaten & from reading the Uncle Ben FB comments of their burgers…

…..thus, I was hit hard with disillusionment the moment I took my first bite. The squashy patty turned me off instantly. Moist is good, but not to the extent of mushiness! The patty gave way to pieces in my hands & we had trouble keeping the burger together.

Kevin instantly regretted that he had placed an additional order of Double pork patty with cheese – RM 8.50. Haha! As expected, the double burger was double the trouble – imagine 2 mushy patties together in a bun!

Needless to say, he didn’t finish it. Neither did I. Pretty wasteful I know, but I just couldn’t take another bite. As if the texture wasn’t bad enough, the patty was salty as well.

Oh, the one in the middle below is the PORK CHOP burger, which we ordered 2. Everything is similar except that pork chop is actual meat & it came with a slice of caramelized pineapple ring. While it sounded better than the pork patty burger, there wasn’t really much of an improvement. The patty was dry & salty.

Overall Uncle Ben Burger Babi is pretty decent if you are not fussy like me 😉 . After all, out of 10 people in the group, there were a few who thought the burgers were nice. For the price, the patty is substantially thick & each burger came with generous helpings of vegetables & a slice of cheese.

For me? I think there are better options (tastewise) for it’s price range:

1. NAMBAWAN Pork Burger, Taman Sri Manja

2. SS2 Wai Sik Kai Pork Burger

    1. Rebecca

      I know 😉
      But I’m pretty sensitive to sodium so it might be ok for others…u might need to try for yrself ya.

    Thks for dropping by. I also ate waterlily and found the uma to be more authentic. I was at the uma last weekend and found the quality to be consistent.

    As for the pork burger, I agree with TummyRumble’s comment abt jarrod and Rawlings. Of course, price wise, it’s a premium!

    1. rebeccasaw

      Ok, will chk out J & R.
      But you got to try El Meson’s!

    Nambawan for the win! Cheap, tasty and dense patty.

      But the waiting is crazy! A friend of mine went during w-end, dinner, waited 2 hours!

    I went there late last year. The sign really caught me and my wife, as we are both babi-lovers

    The stall was manned only by a foreign worker, but we did not mind, assuming she had been trained well and must surely prepare the food properly.

    When our double-patty with cheese burger arrived, we were already put off before even taking our first bite. The thing was not even put properly before we touched it. The top bun had fallen to the plate, and was tilting the rest of the contents. Very disappointing.

    We decided to blame ourselves for ordering the biggest option. We removed 1 patty and the cheese and put the burger back together. Bit it and almost spat it out. The patty was already starting to get stale. We complained and the lady asked us if we want another one as a replacement.

    No Thank you, and I will never order another one at your outlet! Ever!

    1. Rebecca

      Yea, I totally agree. While I was not served stale patties, the burger was barely edible (to me) as it was salty, mushy.. 🙁

    Hey there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same subjects? Thanks for your time!

  12. Andrew
