The Burger Factory at Kota Kemuning: Restaurant Review
Kota Kemuning might seem like a lush suburb that’s cocooned from the culinary crazes of the carnivorous city, but this week’s opening of The Burger Factory here proves that no neighborhood is immune from the burger epidemic that has infected the Klang Valley.
Eat like a boss, eat “The Boss” (RM31.90): The Burger Factory’s priciest is a mega-whopper of Aussie beef, grilled chicken breast, sharp cheddar, emmental cheese, mustard mayo, ketchup, pepperoni, bolognese, beef bacon, sauteed mushrooms and pineapple.
We have mixed feelings about this; it’s undeniably tasty, but in a messy, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink manner, lacking the finesse of flavor to ignite our imagination. Still, we ate it all up; it’s a real riot of guilty-pleasure ingredients.
“The Skunk” (RM13.90) lives up to its scary name, made super-stinky with blue cheese, onions and gherkins. Chunky-meaty in a way that will wow flesh-eaters, though the patty slides closer to Kaw Kaw’s burger bakar in both taste and texture.
By now, every self-respecting burger joint serves a portobello mushroom creation for vegetarians.
The Burger Factory’s seafood-themed burger, “Marine Tales” (RM13.90), is more like a sandwich, packed with prawns, hard-boiled eggs and caramelized onions.
Hot dogs in charcoal buns are available too, as are potatoes straight-cut for French fries or shaped into wedges, curled up, waffled or turned into hash browns.
The Burger Factory boasts a calm premises in Kota Kemuning with plenty of parking; it’s roomy and comfy, with interesting decorative touches to make its setting more distinctive.
