Review: Fried Chicken Burgers @ The Burg, Damansara Uptown

In the Klang Valley, fried chicken burgers are a rarity – especially if you’re looking for the homemade kind. You may find them in gourmet burger joints, but with burgers priced upwards of RM20++, it might not always be kind on the wallet.

Enter The Burg at Damansara Uptown, a humble pop-up joint sandwiched between a bank and a kopitiam. Opened in December last year, the stall has been gaining a steady fan base for its juicy fried chicken burgers – done gourmet style, but with street prices. The menu is limited, but what it lacks in quantity it more than makes up for in quality.

Young chef and proprietor Arthur Cheong has experience working in professional kitchens and as a home baker, before deciding to venture into the burger business. His unique and creative take on burgers include flavours that are well loved by many Malaysians, if not slightly unconventional. There’s the daichow-inspired buttermilk, Japanese curry, Roasted Sesame and the ever popular Salted Egg.

If you’re expecting fast food, look elsewhere – each burger is cooked to order so anticipate a 15 to 20 minute (longer when there’s a line) wait time. Seating is available at the kopitiam next to the stall, but you’ll have to order drinks from them.

We got their bestseller – the Salted Egg – which came in a glorious mess of sauces. The chicken was fried to crispy golden brown perfection, overflowing with juices on the inside, topped with refreshing coleslaw and sandwiched between two fluffy buns. I think the most impressive part  was how well the different ingredients gelled – rather than overpowering one another, you can still distinguish the flavour of each individual ingredient, as they come together to form a harmonious explosion of taste. And it’s only RM9 (+Rm1 for fries!). A steal if I’ve ever seen one.

Verdict: Possibly one of the best fried chicken burgers that I’ve tried so far in the Klang Valley! You’d be missing out if you don’t try it.

  1. I’d rather wait for more minutes than to eat just another processed meat. Oh, and I’m drooling now! 😋
