Oinkz @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya

Its cute & catchy name might seem sufficient to lure curious customers, but thankfully, there's still more to Oinkz than that.

 As its name strongly suggests, Oinkz - run by young entrepreneurs Danny, Wallace & See Siang - is all about the hog, specialising in porky burgers & snacks served in a PJ kopitiam instead of a full-fledged outlet of its own.

 Oinkz currently operates only in the evening, 6pm-10pm, since the other stalls in this kopitiam (which include Sabah & Vietnamese pork noodle operators) are closed then. It currently opens three nights a week (Fridays through Sundays), but will likely also run on Wednesdays & Thursdays starting next week.

 This brand-new burger business whips up concoctions with fun monikers, including 'aPORKalypse now' (RM12, not including a RM4 add-on for McCain skin-on fries & a soft drink), a hearty meal with a house-made spicy pork patty marinated with curry & laced with cili padi, topped with hot sauce, bacon, caramelised onions & egg.

 Appropriate for customers who adore messy street-style burgers; the patty's pretty satisfactory, with enough juice & flavour to make each mouthful worthwhile. And of course, bacon & egg make everything better.

Keep your hands clean with Oinkz's disposable gloves. Other movie-themed burger temptations here include 'The TransPORKter' (RM12, with a pork patty that's breaded & deep-fried instead of grilled) & 'The Godfather' (RM17, billed as The Don of all burgers, with double the patties & double the bacon).

 Oinkz also does a decent 'roti babi' (a bit expensive for RM8 though), as well as handmade pork meatballs (RM8) ...

 ... & braised pork belly with cili padi & sweet-sour plum sauce (RM10). Note that Oinz only prepares 50 burgers nightly; it's still a hidden secret for now (we basically had the kopitiam to ourselves for most of the hour), but to be safe, try to head here earlier in the evening before the eventual crowds come & the burgers potentially run out.

    1. The Yum List: especially for folks who like street-stall burgers ... i kinda felt like this would be what ramly burgers tasted like if they served pork :)

  10. Love the hipster burgers in the coffee shop setting, though I'd probably do a take-away next time.

    1. Footfringe: i can imagine queuing up in front of the stall here for the burgers, though hopefully the wait wouldn't exceed 15 minutes :)

  11. Had it before it was launched.. thought it could do with a bit more fine-tuning. Time to head back now that's it's fully operational.. at least there's a signboard up now! :P

    1. Rebecca: heh, actually my description of this would basically be ramly with pork ... sort of a good thing for customers who like messy-sloppy goodness for their burgers, though ya, the bun, sauces and patty could all still be tweaked further. and yeah, the signboard is good, well-designed and eye-catching :)
