Jamming With Elvis @ MyBurgerLab Seapark

Wrapping up what's become a MyBurgerLab trilogy. Earlier entries: July 11 and July 16.

Jamming With Elvis, a gone-in-sixty-seconds guilty pleasure. Beef, peanut butter, blueberry jam, caramelized onions and cheese combine for one of the sickest burgers we've had this year. MyBurgerLab served this as a two-day special this past week, but we hope it'll become a regular.

Bulging with Aussie grass-fed beef, a perfectly crisp hash brown and mustard-like curry paste, the Curry Crunch is a fresh, flavor-rich entry on the menu. It'd be a brilliant brunch burger, if MyBurgerLab ever opens in the morning.

The Shroom Shroom Shroom should satisfy mushroom maniacs _ a threesome of portobello, shiitake and enoki, caressed by sensually creamy Swiss cheese.

Customize a burger! We call this the Big Beautiful Mess. Take a Beautiful Mess Version 3.0 _ beef, fried portobello, egg and mozzarella _ then pile on a chicken patty, cheddar and Swiss cheeses for an Olympian-sized Goliath that earns a gold medal for juiciness.

"The only thing we have to fear ... is fear itself" - FDR.

If/when MyBurgerLab expands, let's cross our fingers that the next branch will feature milkshakes and/or booze. But for now, nightcap-thirsty customers must find their way to, say, The Bee at Publika, always buzzing in the evening.

There regularly seem to be new cocktails and alcoholic milkshake flavors here, such as this terrific Two Men Tent Espresso Martini (vodka, kahlua, espresso) and absolutely awesome Cointreau milkshake, filled with bits of orange peel for extra texture.

The Bee's Affogato, boasting white chocolate butter ice cream by The Last Polka.

Nymph of the Nile (organic white peony tea with Persian rose and Egyptian basil).

  1. Beef + peanut butter + blueberry jam sounds like a wild combination. I wouldnt have thought of putting them together.

    1. Baby sumo: it's like a bizarre cross between a burger and a peanut butter-&-jelly sandwich. And it works, in a salty-sweet, meaty-creamy, nutty-fruity way! :D

    2. I think that is one of those things that needs to be tasted to be appreciated...because it sounds quite bizarre! How much is said experience costing?

    3. YouHadYourLunch: oooh, i think it worked partly because the proportion of peanut butter and blueberry jam to the remainder of the burger was quite well thought-out. and it only cost around RM15 :D

    1. Ciki: oh yeah, they regularly sell out 150 burgers within five hours on virtually every business day! by my calculation, that's at least 30 burgers every hour, one burger sold every two minutes! the crowds here are especially crazy after seven p.m. :D

    1. Eiling: yeah, it seems to be very packed after 7pm, and customers might have to wait a few minutes for a seat and probably longer for the burgers. it also means that after we finish eating, we shouldn't really linger too long, since other customers will want our table =)

    1. Simple Person: yeah, i don't think they'll open for breakfast or lunch for the foreseeable future. i think the best time might be to go there on a weekend by 6pm, for an early dinner :D

    1. Ulric: it's difficult to decide which burger to order! but they're not too big here, so i think one moderately hungry person could easily finish two or three burgers here :D

  12. I wanna go esp for their charcoal bread but did you mention on another post that it might take up to an hour to wait for your burger? Maybe I should check it out in 6 month's time when the burger fever has died down a bit!
