Pop! Burgers @ Urban Village Bangsar

Some of Bangsar's juiciest burgers are hidden on a residential road that's home to Urban Village, a "creative entrepreneurial hub" with its own cafe.

"Pop! Burger" is the name; hearty, halal burgers are the game. This "Mooger Madness" is a double-patty delight, comprising thick, fairly flavorsome slices of beef (begone, McDonald's!), egg, cheese & apple slices. Primly presented, but marvelously messy to eat.

Only two RM10 burgers are available. The other is "Chicger Crankin," with beef swapped for chicken & apples for pineapples. Also addictive, but less greasy than the Ramly/Otai varieties. We finished everything on the plate except the plain bun.

Burgers come with munch-worthy fries & "Tropic Thunder" beverages.

What about the rest of Urban Village? There are work & event spaces for rent, as well as studios for music, video & photography. Expect a cool, easy-going vibe here.

Directions: Urban Village is basically a house on the same street as Huck's Cafe, but on the opposite end. Despite bearing no obvious signboard, it isn't too tough to find.

  4. What a curious find! Then again, burger-making is a craft no less creative than music, video or photography so they probably had the right idea there!

  7. RM10 is so reasonable. And the addition of fruits to the burgers sounds worthwhile.

    1. Iamthewitch: heh, yeah, there's a McD's in bangsar too, but i think i'd prefer Pop Burger. if only they had more choices on their menu, heh =)

  14. Are the prices same as McD tho? I mean McDs are Rm5.95 for a set during lunch and nw they do dinners as well.
    Anyhw, i get the point - this is much better nutritional wise..

    1. Thenomadgourmand: ooh, i'm thinking maybe in comparison to mcdonald's recent "double double" burger promotions, where they had double patties for many of their burgers. most of those cost more than RM10, but without fries and drinks, heh :D

  15. fruits on burgers is a good way to make people their fruits.

    how was the burger buns? you mentioned you ate everything except the buns.

    1. Missyblurkit: yeah, i'm guilty of that! i usually only take fruits when it comes with something else. oh, the buns were very generic. the ones you can buy from tesco, i think =)
