Trust me, you won’t be able to get this anywhere else in Petai-ling Jaya!
Ever since their opening in 2012, myBurgerLab has been well-known for not only producing top quality burgers, but also being very experimental when it comes to their menu. Over the past couple of years, they have come up with some of the most unique burgers choices Malaysia has to offer such as the Crouching Fu Chok Hidden Ginger Burger and also the Nasi Lemak Burger.
And let’s of course not forget about their delicious Milo-Coated Chicken Strips that sold out within 3 hours!
Now, myBurgerLab has just announced that they will be releasing the Sambal Petai and Blue Cheese Burger this coming March!
The “Stinkbomb” will be making its comeback after a year and will be sold from the 5th to 17th of March at all six outlets. The burger consists of a juicy beef patty that is topped with a generous serving of sambal belacan and petai, blue cheese dressing, a grilled pineapple ring and also oven baked cherry tomatoes. Served in their signature charcoal buns, the Stinkbomb is sure to ignite your taste buds and make you beg for more with its strong authentic flavours.
And luckily for us, we got to try it out first!
myBurgerLab also provides a poultry counterpart called “The Hook, Line & Stinker” that replaces the beef patty with a crispy fried chicken thigh. Other than the patty and an additional serving of cheddar cheese, this burger has the exact same ingredients as the Stinkbomb and is definitely just as mouth-watering. A good alternative if you prefer chicken over beef!
When we got these two burgers, we were impressed by not only the sight of the burgers, but the smell as well. After having a good whiff of it, we noted hints of blue cheese and sambal belacan which was enough to make our mouths water. I could barely stop myself from eating this ap-Petai-zing burger!
Without further ado, here’s my two cents on this attractive combo.
Things that I loved about it:
- The ingredients are fresh and perfectly complemented each other. There’s no doubt that myBurgerLab makes great burgers that taste amazing. Every ingredient used in this burger was prepared and cooked to perfection, making this a burger I would definitely order again. The oven-baked cherry tomatoes also added a very surprising twist to it, making each bite different from the previous one.
- The sambal belacan and petai were spicy and tasted absolutely delicious and authentic. Though my tolerance for spicy food is a little below the average Malaysian, I loved that the burger had the perfect level of spiciness. It was enough to give me a “kick” but at the same time, I wasn’t crying and running to get refills every 10 seconds. Of course, not only was it spicy enough, but the sambal belacan was so authentic, I actually thought there was a Malay Mak Cik in the kitchen making it!
- The pineapple on the burger was perfection. I know, I know, not everybody loves pineapples on savory food (ie: pizza), but this one really works! The slice of pineapple in the middle of the burger was perfect as its sourness and sweetness blended perfectly with the sambal belacan. You’re definitely going to enjoy how surprisingly refreshing this burger is!
Things that could have been improved:
- It could be smellier. Personally, I am a fan of strong-smelling, pungent food such as blue cheese, smelly tau foo and of course, durian. However, for a burger that was named the Stinkbomb, I definitely wished the burger had a stronger and more pungent taste to it. That’s just me, but I’m sure there are Malaysians who would be satisfied with the “stinkiness” of the burger.
- There could be more blue cheese dressing. My colleagues and I agreed that as much as we enjoyed the sambal petai, it was a little too overpowering and we could only taste slight hints of the blue cheese. Although we could still smell and taste it, we definitely wished there was more blue cheese goodness on the burger.
Well, one thing is for sure, these two burgers still BLUE me away.
When WORLD OF BUZZ spoke to myBurgerLab, they also revealed that their main intention on bringing back this burger was because of all the recent food controversy with Singapore. They claimed that because sambal petai is such a traditional and staple local delicacy, there would be no way that Singapore would mimic this burger.
All in all, I would definitely recommend trying the Stinkbomb or the Hook, Line and Stinker. It’s definitely a burger that I would order again and I’m sure many Malaysians who are petai or blue cheese fans will be heading over to give it a go on the 5th of March (Psst… you can actually ask for the blue cheese to be served on the side or have it removed if you’re not a fan!).
