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.
