Hardcore, Kaw Kaw & Darabif Burgers

Burger binge! Crisscrossing the city for some meaty behemoths, starting with Hardcore Burger, a street stall that's grilling a nifty name for itself in Taman Tun.

Hardcore's eponymous burger boasts two beefed-up patties made by the stall's amiable owners that stack as high as an iPhone 5. The meat might be a mite mushier than some prefer, but it should still satisfy the carnivorous tooth.

Hardcore's duck burger is also a delight, dripping with succulent sliced meat. Our sole possible complaint is that the bread & the sauces taste too typical.

Hardcore Burger operates nightly. Lamb, chicken & fish burgers, also available.

More street burgers: Can't leave Burger Kaw Kaw out of the list.

The Kaw Kaw "burger bakar" phenom has flourished in Wangsa Maju, Ampang, Puchong & Taman Mayang Jaya, spawning countless imitators. This Double Beef Baconizer Cheezy, with its awesomely chunky patties, explains why.

Chicken Turkeynizer, featuring a juicy thigh fillet. Kaw Kaw's burgers must be laden with calories, cholesterol & sodium, but they're satisfactory enough to try at least once.

Leaving the streets & heading into Wisma Cosway, where Darabif dishes out diverse burgers.

We sought to maximize our pleasure with Darabif's double-patty Maxi Moo, but the patty tasted too processed for our liking, scarcely a step up from luncheon meat.

For something evocative of street specialties, the Burger Malaysia comes wrapped with egg & paired with grated cabbage. Close, but we're keeping our cigar.

Lamb Glam, gamy glam, with an onion mint sauce that tastes like BBQ sauce.

The Hot Chick features too-salty chicken patty & chicken ham, with a mildly spicy sauce.

In the end, the saving grace of sorts. Darabif's fish burger's OK, with a fillet fresher & flakier than expected _ though truth be told, we like Mickey D's equivalent equally.

Hardcore Burger @ TTDI, Persiaran Zaaba, Taman Tun Dr Ismail.

  3. Ahh that's why i havent really bothered with street burgers. My preference is well made patties with quality meat, and none of that sliced mass produced cheese pls. Also chilli, mayo, ketchup is not my thing. Also the bun, that porous dry bun. Urgh..
    I have a friend who swears by a stall in TTDI, near perodua showroom. is this the one i wonder?

    1. Rebecca: your friend is right, burger hardcore is the one near the car showroom in taman tun. i think you might be able to appreciate certain aspects of their burger, so maybe can give it a try on a night when you feel like having a burger! :D

  4. I miss Darabif!!! Haven't had my double lamb patty burger and beef nuggets ever since they closed down in Uptown. They were supposed to open in Tropicana City Mall and SS2 mall too I think but guess it didn't work out. =(

  9. Didn't mind the non-chicken/beef Darabif burgers; pity the outlet(s) in PJ closed and I can't be arsed to go to Wisma Cosway when there's a Burger Kaw Kaw near me... and LivingSocial vouchers to the latter to use up. Of course I only bought the single patty burger vouchers because I'm not crazy enough to go further :P

    I went O_o when I saw the Hardcore burgers.

    1. Lifeasacynic: ooh, it's cool that you have a burger kaw kaw in your neighborhood. i think the closest one to me is at puchong (for my home) and wangsa maju (for work), but even those two areas are kinda far off. heh, i've seen the pics of the multi-patty kaw kaw burgers, and they're scary! definitely scarier than hardcore's burgers, heh! :D

  15. Frankly... I find the prices a rip-off lah. Mince is really cheap and its more than 10 bucks for them. That's like Carl's Jr prices already!
