GBK Go Burger Kitchen & Caffeine @ Setiawalk Puchong

The Klang Valley's current twin crazes _ burgers & coffee _ come together at Puchong's Setiawalk complex, where two neighboring cafes, Go Burger Kitchen & CAFFEine, have begun working to complement each other.

Go Burger Kitchen, which opened this week, is bright & family-friendly, serving basic burgers now but with plans for innovation in the future.

The signature Go Big Boy burger is not bad, featuring a four-ounce Aussie grass-fed beef patty with beef bacon, double cheese & onion rings.

Pork hogs the limelight in the Swiss Piggy burger, boasting a (supposedly organic) pork patty with Swiss cheese, sauteed mushrooms & grilled onions.

Fowl fans, fear not: Chicken comes into play too, boosted by a side helping of GBK's own mustard recipe (& there's also the now-inescapable portobello mushroom vegetarian burger).

Service is friendly & the proprietor seems genuinely interested in customer feedback. All in all, an OK stop if you're in Puchong & craving burgers.

At GBK, customers can order coffee, which will be brought over from CAFFEine next door.

CAFFEine's fun signature beverages include the Electro Choc (Irish cream, hazelnut coffee, milk & cocoa powder).

Jrocks, essentially iced caramel macchiato with vanilla ice cream.

Golden Mocha (chocolate, coffee, milk, caramel).


GBK Go Burger Kitchen & CAFFEine,
Setia Walk, Puchong.

  1. Coffee and burger... now that's a first. Would be great if it's pork bacon rather than beef. But that's just me. :P

    1. Chong: oooo, no worries, Go Burger Kitchen serves pork bacon too (as well as turkey bacon), so you could ask them to substitute the beef bacon with pork bacon instead :D yeah, I'm not convinced that burgers and coffee pair all that comfortably together, though on the other hand, they don't clash all that much either, heh :D

  5. The current burger craze is getting a bit nuts. And not one (maybe just MBL) can beat the burgers I eat for the same price (dollar for dollar, no conversion) in Singapore.

    1. Ciki: ooh, but there hasn't been a hipster burger joint in puchong before this, so if you lived in puchong, you would have had to drive all the way to PJ, kota damansara or subang for your burger fix, heheh :D

  10. I wonder if the booming burger scene is limited to KL or whether it's the same in other country? I know coffee is.

    1. CK: ooo, I think our burger craze is because of the success of MyBurgerLab, which started less than one year ago. Businesses realize that the demand for this kind of burgers is now quite high, so they're all trying to open quickly and make a big profit, maybe =)

  11. Gosh. I think I'm repeating myself, but are there REALLY that many burger fans n Klang Valley? What happened to healthy eating?! We need more health food joints!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kelly: oh yeah, there definitely are many, many fans, judging from the long queues and sold-out burgers at some of these outlets! But you are right about one thing, that we could use more outlets for health food! Especially if the health food can be as inventive and tasty as these burgers =)

  19. And I thought this is a franchise from the GBK in london which is called Gourmet Burger Kitchen that serves really nice burgers. Great concept as they allow ordering of coffee from next door.
