Cravings @ Sunway Giza


A nice-looking place with warm service, but the menu has both hits and misses.


The 12-inch "Monster Burger" (trimmed a bit here, since they ran out of some patties) is their claim to fame. Looked impressive, with the patties made in-house, but the chicken was tasteless, the beef was dry and the vegetarian patty was too salty.


Mee krob. Rather bland, lacking the zesty flavours associated with Thai recipes.


Fried rice in pumpkin. The saving grace; being fans of pumpkin, we scraped the soft, sweet pumpkin flesh out of its rind and savoured every spoonful.

  3. ouch. that's a tough comment on the "monster burger" especially since it;s their claim to fame.

    Shows that interesting concept doesnt necessary mean good food

  5. Oh... That ubiquitous Monster Burger again. I am sure LL is suffering from nightmares about being chased by rabid fruits and Myanmar style democracy tubers. Maybe I should try their burger. It would humble me enough to make me drop down on my knees at the sight of the excellent Foie Burger at the Daily Grind and the decadent Wagyu Foie at Mandarin.

    And boy, I do need some penance for not offering thanksgiving prayers before meals!

    Have a nice weekend, bro.

  6. augustdiners: yeah, the concept of the burger pulled us to this place, but i doubt i'd return unless i hear they've improved the recipe...
    lfb: if the (glass) slipper fits, wear it :P
    android: thankfully, i haven't been plagued by such woes. it would be cool for more of you guys to try the burger though ... maybe organize a group outing here and order JUST the burger! based on my experience, two people won't finish one burger anyways. hope u're having a good saturday too :D

  13. I wonder how one person is going to finish that burger. I think 3 people will be more appropriate. hahah

    ReplyDelete
  14. Eiling: yeah, three people will probably have the stomach capacity to finish the burger, but since it tastes pretty bad, they might not even bother to =)

  17. When becks said she wanted to try a burger that is one feet on length, alarm bells started ringing in my head. All for good reason, it would seem :)
