10 Best Burger Spots In KL & PJ That Are Halal Or Muslim-Friendly

While Klang Valley is vast and saturated with all sorts of burger specialists, there are only a good handful that truly surpass the rest. It comes down to the freshness of the protein used, the intricate sauces, the softness of the buns – lest we forget, the oozy cheese! Dry, overcooked patties are a major faux pas in the burger world so if you’re looking for scrumptious ones, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s begin!
