Harold and Kumar Go Burger Bakar No.1

During my recent getaway to JB, I got poisoned with the JB's famous Burger Bakar No.1 in Bukit Indah after reading a friend's Facebook status. Apparently the burger patties are thick grilled patties, sold at a stall with a long queue of patient patrons. That certainly says something about the burgers, if the customers are willing to wait for their orders. As usual I did an immediate holler to hubby who was in Klang at that time, made plans to grab a bite once there.

Our initial plan for the burger biting did not work out due to unforeseen circumstances. On top of that I had to endure Resident Evil: Retribution. Yeah we went for it at the cineplex, and it only reassured the reason why I avoid such movies. I would write a review of it but heck, I'm not in the mood to make myself all nasty. The less said the better, you get it?

So the next day, hubby and brother (Harold and Kumar) cunningly made a smooth plan tucking me and kids away at home to grab the burger, like finally, or so they thought! My only consolation was that they were going to pack my share of the loot for supper. They waited half an hour for their order, only to be told that they were out of patties. Poor fellas made their way back to Permas Jaya for the local burger stall that sells exotic meat burgers such as rabbit, ostrich and lamb. Sadly the burger stall was already closed, somewhere before 11pm. Then brother suggested to go for some other equally famous, Molek Roti John, which again was already closed, or was it that they did not operate on that day. Regardless, bad news for the duo. Finally they decided to use their lifeline and call a friend. Much to their delight the friend told them that Burger Bakar No. 1 has a branch in Masai. H and K made their way there pronto and ordered our grilled burgers!

They made it home sometime before 1am and had a hell of a story to tell me about their journey. I was impressed, so what Harold and Kumar went through was not just a movie, it really happens in real life! With the big round that they took around JB and the outskirts, they warned the burger better be good, else... errr... maybe they will go discredit the burger seller.

The burgers were packed carefully with a skewer to ensure it stands with it's given altitude. And the moment you open the packing you see the proud tall double burger standing surrounded by the halo of their very own sauce. The sauce is the hero of the whole thing. The burger patties were thick and yet grilled to perfection, but it's the sauce that pulled it all together. Since it is so huge, we ended up eating one bread with one patty at a time, slowly dipping into the drizzle of sauce below, just like Capati and dal, or thosai with sambar, or perhaps rice and curry.

Check out the height of the monsterous burger! Each bite was like a trip to burger lala-land, we could literally see stars. By the last bite, we had so much that we could not think about food for the next 10 hours (yeah ok so it was already bedtime). Although delicious on the taste, the size of it is so overwhelming that you need to detox yourself off the giant burger. By next morning we were still feeling full. Giant grilled burgers before bedtime = bad idea. Now we know., till the next gastronomical adventure!
