Big Hug Burger Smile May 02, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Restaurant | Pizza/Pasta | Burgers / Sandwiches

 
A big bear hug for Big Hug Burger: The Klang Valley's burger frenzy has found a focal point in Subang, where multiple outlets are opening for SS15's college crowd.

 
Big Hug Burger, which launched this week, is one of the nicest-looking burger joints so far, thanks partly to the fact that its owners include a graphic artist. The cafe's tailored for the young, with Justin Bieber & Jessie J playing on the speakers, a huge teddy bear for cuddling on a couch & a within-walking-distance location from INTI & Taylor's.

 
As far as recipe inventiveness goes, the law of diminishing returns is taking effect, but Big Hug's owners say their emphasis is on using comparatively healthier ingredients, from wholemeal buns to grass-fed Aussie beef & fresh corn oil.

 
Red meat to relish first: Big Hug's lamb burger (RM14, no taxes or service charge) features a house-made grilled patty, roasted cherry tomatoes, caramelized onions, mozzarella & cheddar cheeses, gherkins & lots of crisp lettuce.

 
The bamboo charcoal bun beef burger (RM15) comes with the same toppings & even more, including sauteed shiitake mushrooms & garlic aioli. Hearty & tasty, but no longer revolutionary, not at this point in 2013.

 
What's actually awesome here: the Big Hug Crispy Chicken Chop burger (RM19 with extra egg), boasting a jumbo chunk of ultra-juicy thigh meat, onion rings, pineapple slices & an uber-creamy "secret sauce" that's absolutely addictive. This is the one to order.

 
Fun for fish fans: Salmon fillet & battered dory burgers (RM14 & RM12) respectively.

 
Herb-sprinkled fries, soft & fluffy-thick, though missing the crisp that some might prefer.

Pizza Brava OK May 02, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Restaurant | Pizza/Pasta | Seafood

 
Bravo to Pizza Brava for cultivating a loyal following among fans of Italian food in Sri Hartamas; we wish the restaurant would be more adventurous in its wide-ranging menu, but playing it safe hasn't hurt its business.

 
Extremely few risks are evident in the wood-fire pizza selection; nearly two dozen varieties are available, laden with toppings like beef pepperoni, chicken sausage, tuna & mushrooms. Still, can't criticize this meat-free Margherita with rocket, cherry tomatoes & parmesan cheese. RM18 for a 10-inch pizza, before taxes.

 
The 18-item pasta menu also focuses on the classics like spaghetti with beef meatballs, tomatoes & herbs (RM18). Not quite as al dente as the menu promises, but still easily edible.

 
Starters include well-executed deep-fried breaded mozzarella cheese (RM12) in Naples' pizzaiola sauce of tomatoes, olives, garlic & herbs. Simple satisfaction.

 
A reasonable range of wine is available, though other liquor & cocktails are not.

 
Service is OK but not particularly focused or friendly; on a recent Sunday, we weren't sure whether Pizza Brava's owners were around, but their employees mainly looked like they were rather anxious to close for the night.

 
Maybe a list of weekly specials could spark a little more excitement. But all things considered, it's not a bad destination, depending on what customers are looking for.

Crayon Burger Smile Feb 08, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Burgers / Sandwiches

 
MyBurgerLab's unprecedented popularity has opened the floodgates for more funky burgers to storm the suburbs. Some of the best beefiness so far comes from Crayon Burger, which seems set to chalk up rainbow-powered success in Subang.

 
Crayon Burger's claim to fame: its kaleidoscope of buns, cultivated in colorful hues made possible with natural ingredients. Red yeast yields pink buns, spinach tints bread a pale green, while bamboo charcoal & milk supply their own inimitable shades.

 
Each bun boasts subtle flavors; this one's fragrant veggie freshness becomes a wholesome counterpoint to the crispy-creaminess of nachos & cheese fondue.

 
But the primary pleasure still rests in the meat: smashed patties of Aussie grass-fed beef, its chunky succulence similar to MyBurgerLab's (imitation = sincere flattery). Most of the burgers cost about RM15, with bottomless soda & fries requiring an extra RM5.

 
Peanut butter alert! Savory satisfaction is assured with this behemoth of beef patty, beef bacon, peanut butter & raspberry jam. Sure, it's sinful, but Crayon Burger's clientele of college students shouldn't have to fear cholesterol (for now).

 
Don't dread the Zombie Burger either, perhaps Crayon's flagship formation, a poppy-seed bun with a patty smothered in blood-red onion ketchup. Also available with chicken breast patty, but stick to the cow, which delivers bolder flavor & a punchier juiciness.

 
Our favorite Crayon creation: The Boss (probably not Springsteen-inspired, but who knows), thanks to its eccentric combo of toppings: wasabi mayo, fried egg, onion rings & Swiss cheese. Somehow, it works!

 
Crayon's fries are sufficiently fluffy & fulfilling, though not the star of the show. Another plus point: Crayon opens 11am-10pm, ensuring that queues remain shorter (or even nonexistent), especially throughout daylight hours. Closed Mondays.

Ooh My Gas Smile Feb 08, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Stall / Warung | Ice Cream / Froyo / Gelato

 
Got gas? Barely a month after NBrew established Malaysia's first liquid nitrogen ice cream kiosk at eCurve, another purveyor of LN2 pleasures has suddenly surfaced, this time at the wonderfully convenient location of Pavilion.

 
Ooh My Gas (cute name) at Pavilion offers an impressive degree of minus-210-degree customization. The ordering procedure might seem complicated initially: Patrons first need to choose a base, either ice cream, gelato or soy milk.

 
Next, determine your flavor: everything from macadamia milk to coffee java chips, sesame to white chocolate, grape to pineapple. Then decide on toppings: cashews, pistachios, corn flakes, Reese's, Oreos, marshmallows & more.

 
The frosty fun begins immediately; each cup (prices start at RM12.90) takes a minute to make, with the mixes flash-frozen with liquid nitrogen & served to order.

 
Peanut butter alert! Our top pick: Peanut butter gelato topped with pecans. Folks will probably have their own preferences, but with the right combination of flavor & topping, Ooh My Gas ranks pretty much on par with the fabulous Cielo Dolci.

 
Hazelnut nutella ice cream. An absolute delight, dense, rich & smooth enough to become everyone's latest addiction.

 
Cinnamon ice cream, with a soy milk base & cream cheese topping, near-perfect in taste & texture. Note that customers can also specify whether they want their ice cream very sweet, moderately sweet or relatively less sweet.

WTF Restaurant Part 1 Smile Nov 14, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Indian | Western variety | Restaurant | Burgers / Sandwiches

 
WTF Restaurant (it stands for "What Tasty Food"), based in a Bangsar condominium, specializes in a spectrum of spice that surpasses what many Indian eateries offer in KL.

 
Opened this month by a merry band of Malaysian vegetarians who flew to Mumbai to secure the services of several Indian chefs for the kitchen here, WTF is a spaciously welcoming spot where friends & families can happily hang out in the evening.

 
Street snacks are WTF's passion: Try the Pav Bhaji (RM9), mashed mixed veggies slathered over a buttered bun for flavorsome fun that encapsulates WTF's ethos _ meatless cuisine can still make for mouthwatering meals.

 
Bhel puri (RM5) combines the crunchy texture of puffed rice & fried chickpea flour noodles with the tangy taste of tamarind sauce & chutney. More than moreish.

 
Dahi puri (RM8), another renowned roadside cart chaat. Bread shells brimming with beans & sourish yogurt; we'd happily wolf down these crispy babies all night long.

 
Masala khichdi (RM9), creamy, porridge-like comfort food of rice & lentils.

 
WTF's addiction to authenticity extends to the vada pav, a potato fritter sandwiched in a bun that a baker has been hired to specially make to ensure it tastes like it would in India.

 
Crispy critters: hara bhara kabab (RM2 each), stuffed with spinach, & breadcrumb tikki cutlets crammed with corn & potatoes.
