Buns Burger Bar at Desa Sri Hartamas
One of KL’s most ambitious burger joints so far, Buns Burger Bar is the brainchild of Aaron and Angela, whose cross-border search for the world’s tastiest burgers has spurred them to open a place that seeks to offer not only luscious burgers but tempting tapas too. Many thanks to the friendly young couple for inviting us to this preview tasting session earlier this month.
Quality Burgers on a Budget
Buns is finicky about its burgers, employing patties constructed from free-range, grass-fed Australian beef, freshly ground daily, and buns sourced from a cautiously selected supplier; mercifully though, the outlet keeps prices relatively affordable, with a basic burger starting from RM16, with none surpassing RM20.
With meat cooked slightly pink, the spotlight also shines on tantalising toppings; the S.E.A. features a lemongrass-infused patty crowned with fish sauce, sambal mayo, coriander, carrots, radish and cucumber, while the Guac showcases guacamole and hand-chopped salsa (note: neither is pictured here, but we’ll return soon to try them).
Meet the Champ
Beef wrapped in turkey ham, with a sunny-side-up, shiitake mushrooms, herbs, tomatoes and red cabbage. Note that Buns’ buns lean a bit more toward the dense side, not exactly the fluffy sort.
