Top 10 Best Burgers in KL

1. My BurgerLab

Operating since 2012, My BurgerLab now has five branches in town and still counting, but never fear- the chain hasn’t lost its sheen. Try their Bait and Switch, comprising of fried chicken thigh paired with spicy and tangy bell pepper relish, cilantro, red onions and the statement ingredient: the Kelantanese Budu Sauce, a true crescendo of texture and flavour, and certainly not one for the faint-hearted.

We aren’t the first to sing The Daily Grind’s praises and we’re confident we won’t be the last. Their standard, uncomplicated burgers are all mouth-wateringly good. Burger connoisseurs might want to give their Foie Gras Burger a try: pan-seared foie gras over a juicy beef patty with balsamic palm sugar glaze, slices of portobello mushroom and onion cranberry jam, an eye-opener indeed.

3. Burger Bobby Simpang 3

Not only luxurious eat-in options serve savoury burgers to tickle your taste buds- this is evident by Burger Bobby Simpang 3- a humble burger stall in town you’re about to go cray-cray about. This impressive greasy option is indeed attention-grabbing. It may lack some serious structural integrity, however it’s true to never judge a book by its cover- it tastes overly heavenly good and we understand why it’s one of the most well-known street burger joints in town.
