So, what’s the occasion when you find a large crowd of about 15 all gathering/waiting at a brightly lit van located in some dark, remote space in SS15, Subang?
The Burger Shop that is. The only one of it’s kind, especially cause it’s running on a van instead of the usual Ramli stalls.
They are the Burger / Hot Dog Specialist too, so they claim. Andrew and myself were about to begin our journey in order to find out how special their burgers are, and not just referring to the addition of eggs into the burger (to the uninitiated, that’s what they call “burger special”)
The first thing we were shocked at was the presence of some picture menu for us to survey. Seriously, I think these people mean what they say; they really have brought up the standards of the street burgers business!
Nevertheless the original menu still stays. One glance at the menu screams of “CHEAP!” and so we decided to be adventurous, especially when we overheard other customers asking for orders that are not found in this menu.
Like, Mushroom Ayam Cheese Special, Mushroom Daging Cheese Special and Mushroom Ikan Special (should have ordered double!). Yum.
(Er, the second burger was for Andrew, saved for the Championship happening that very same morning lol)
Don’t know if that burger of his managed to stay uneaten before the match though, looking at his hungry face!
While waiting for our orders to be processed along with 314244435 others, we toured around the van and noticed the large number of patties these guys have. We also wanted to try to Oblong Kambing (something unique to this store as well) but they ran out of it when we arrived (which brings us to our next trip the day after, but that’s another story altogether )
Waiting was no problem for us; they had a row of chairs for customers to sit waiting, along with music blasting out from their speakers located at the top the van! Seriously, this is street burger business going the right direction, how enterprising!
(though I’ve yet to figure out the purpose of the green glow below the car, why ah?)
The wait wasn’t long at all! Looking at the 3 people working there, 1 taking orders in speed of light, memorizing all our faces, 1 speed cooking the patties, eggs, mushrooms and others in the shortest time possible yet doing it so perfectly, and the last one deftly preparing the cooked ingredients to form our burgers according to specification so fast that it’s hard to keep up with his hand movements! Can you see the mushroom in the picture above? Truly a specialty to be reckoned about!
By the way, the burger is kept in a styrofoam box for a very, very good reason.
This is because, every burger they serve has been “banjired” by sauces. Or should I say, a plentiful mix of mushroom sauce, bbq sauce, cheese, runny egg (yes they leave the eggs slightly runny!) to form the bestest sauce ever to go with your burger. Just inserting your fingers inside to dig out the burger will create a wonderfully moist experience in each and every one of your fingers
Andrew’s virgin experience with his Mushroom Daging Cheese Special can only be described in pictures.
The Burger Shop proudly displays its number for bookings (017-3555040), and business times (6.00pm to 4.30am) while making sure their customers know that they are off on Sundays. Open since 1997, they have been around for 12 years and looking at their profitable business, I suspect for many years to come as well!
Look for them at SS15, Subang, located in between the market and Berry Passion (shop), shouldn’t be too hard to miss!
Oh, and as a lolcatified additional messasge, just remember while waiting, don’t bully the cats who stray around the area.
Or you just might get pwned. (Andrew to note)
