Big Mouth Burger @ Bandar Sunway

Burger haters, this one's not for you; for the rest of us, Big Mouth, which opened this month in Bandar Sunway, promises two or three items of possible interest.

 Living up to its name, Big Mouth's signature eight-inch-wide creation is a behemoth of a burger, served in a box the size of a birthday cake, boasting a 500-gram flame-grilled beef patty that even four customers might have trouble finishing. Comes with fries too.

 Can't capture the magnitude of this staggering mega-burger in these snapshots; sandwiched with beef bacon, cheese & onions in the Klang Valley's now-ubiquitous charcoal bun, this might clock in at nearly a kilogram, ensuring the RM52.80 price tag feels warranted.

Still, there's space for nitpicking: Ketchup-mayo elements in Big Mouth's recipes weigh somewhat heavily, making this taste like a hybrid of hipster burgers, street burgers & fast-food burgers. Some will like it, some won't. Fair enough.

For less epic appetites, try smaller burgers that nonetheless seem more substantial than normal; our best bet's this Benedict Burger (RM12.80, including fries).

 Topped with a poached egg that's respectably runny, this one works well enough.

 Big Mouth's patties are not exactly top-notch meat, but they'll do in a pinch. For a pleasant visit, keep expectations within a reasonable range.

 Also potentially enjoyable: Big Apple Burger (RM18.80), served with hash brown & grilled apple.

 Maybe the apple could be sliced thicker for better results. Big Mouth Burger is opening two branches for now: this one near Sunway University & another in Seremban later this week.

Not into beef? Have a chicken burger with quite-good onion rings, pickles & an extra request of fried egg. RM13.80. Could be a satisfying supper snack, except that Big Mouth currently opens 10:30am-8:30pm (closed Sundays). Caution: Parking here on weekdays requires some patience.

 Fries, chunky enough, though without the crisp that would render them wholly irresistible.

    1. Ken: heh, these burgers were certainly built for sharing (bring at least two more people if you aim to eat the signature Big Mouth burger) :D

  8. Their signature burger sure is big. But somehow, the sight of beef bacon (maybe it's the colour) doesn't seem appetizing. But that's just me. :D

    1. Chong: yeah, i kinda agree with you. it might give the burger the feel of an overly processed/artificial look. pork bacon might look more tempting, heh =)

  13. Who has got the mouth for this? It'll look more like the burger is eating our face. It'll be quite messy too right? The runny egg and all...must bring lots of wet wipes.

    1. Amir: i believe they do, as they do not serve pork here, though i haven't asked them where they get their beef and chicken from :)
