BurgerLand & Coffee Ink @ Klang

The balance between art & commerce takes on a new meaning at both BurgerLand & Coffee Ink, two outlets that bring precisely what their names suggest to Klang (finally!).

First up, BurgerLand, where the walls & pillars are adorned with attractive "3D paintings."

While waiting for their burgers, folks can pose for photos in front of these colorful, cheerful works.

The results can be cute; it's a cool, clever marketing hook for BurgerLand, run by three friends, Jack, Jerry & Hean.

Our top bet at BurgerLand: The Mighty Reunion, featuring juicy-fried chicken thigh, grilled chicken, house-made fish fillet, egg & the works. Messy but scrumptious in a tower-of-sin way. It's interesting to note that BurgerLand currently serves no beef patties (forgot to confirm why).

Rendang chicken & egg burger, exactly what we'd expect of it. Patrons can also customize their burgers; that's something to experiment with if we ever want to courageously/foolishly partner our rendang chicken with mayo, mushrooms, cheese & coleslaw.

Curly fries, to be matched with Sriracha-laced mayo. All in all, possibly worth checking out if you're in Klang or only 30 minutes away via the Kesas highway.

BurgerLand is near one of Klang's high schools, so a youthful vibe can be expected here.

Next up, only a five-minute drive from BurgerLand, there's Coffee Ink, which probably targets a relatively more mature clientele.

Plenty of portraits on the walls here too, featuring people, puppies, owls & more; the place has a half-cafe, half-art gallery feel.

Baileys mille-crepe, not particularly boozy but still enjoyable enough.

Try the "Dirty Chai," Coffee Ink's tea-spiked latte. A fun change from the usual.

    1. Ulric: heh, yeah, it was a bit strange having the fish together with the chicken, but all in all, it didn't clash (though all the chicken probably overpowered the fish) =)

    2. Icic...still an interesting contrast in textures...hehe =)

    3. Ulric: heh, yeah, especially since all three of the patties were differently prepared (i like the juxtaposition of grilled chicken with fried chicken in one burger) =)

  2. Burger looks interesting though the buns look like regular mass produced ones...

    1. Missyblurkit: ooo, apparently the buns are made for them by one of their friends or associates or something (but not made on-site, I think). They also have green tea buns but it wasn't available that afternoon =)

  5. Burger! Hmmm...that bun looks like it's in a sorry state. Heard there's a new place here - hope it's the same chef moved from the one with awesome burgers, since closed down. Yet to go and try.
