Chips.my & Burger-mbira @ Damansara Uptown

Down a dark alley in Damansara Uptown, here's a new bright spot for fans of street food: Chips.my offers hand-cut fries, cooked to order, thick & fairly fluffy, made with russet potatoes, served with a choice of sweet-spicy sauce or tangy lemon aioli.

Ideal for midnight munching - Chips.my opens in the evening till at least 1am. Each portion of the fresh, warm & golden-crusted chips costs RM5, plus RM1 per dip. Pretty good stuff, unburdened by the excess oil or salt associated with fast food. Chips.my marks a nice start for its creator Jun Yit & his partners Wye Keat & Ken, childhood friends seeking a foothold in F&B, with hopes for a food truck or full-fledged outlet soon. Catch the Chips.my stall now before its founders move to the next level.

In a stroke of serendipity, Chips.my is located beside a burger stand that also opened this year in Uptown. Jenma & Zam's Burger-mbira is a friendly spot with an extensive menu - the couple take pride particularly in speciality burgers with their own-made patties. Top temptations include the ultimate Mega Big & Taste (RM15; two beef patties with two slices of chicken, lettuce, hash brown, cheese, mayo & dripping sauces), Chicken Spicy Deluxe (RM7; spicy chicken patty with the works) & Lamb Burger Special (RM8, with an omelette-wrapped lamb patty), each a potential hit for patrons who enjoy street burgers.

  3. Coincidentally last night I just bought the regular chicken burger for the maid :) I had not tried the burger before but judging on the look on my maid's face and how fast she walloped the whole burger, I guess that it was good!! Next time maybe.. For my wife is not a fan of street style burger

    1. Leo: that is a coincidence :) i'm also not a stall burger person, cos i prefer less processed patties and not too much ketchup or mayo-like sauce, but they do seem to put a lot of care and effort and thought into the burgers here :)

  4. Isn't this at the same spot as Brother John Ramly burger? Where did the ramly burger stall go? My bad as I haven't been to Uptown for ages though I was planning to bring my overseas visitors to try out ramly burger here in the coming months.

    1. Alvina: yeah, you're more familiar with this area than i am :) the chips owner confirmed that this is where brader john burger used to be ... i don't know where that stall went to, but burger-mbira also offers ramly burgers, aside from its own-patty burgers :)

    2. Hey Alvina and Sean, if I'm not mistaken, Brother John moved his stall further down the road in front of RHB. Cheers to great burgers!
