What’s the Best Burger in KL?
With such a wide variety of burgers available in the city, how do you decide on the best burgers in KL?
Hamburgers are like pizza. Everyone has their favourite style and toppings, and they think theirs is the best variety. Go to a different neighbourhood, region, or country, and you’ll see a completely different standard. Some of the accepted standards of a good burger are based upon memories. You might have enjoyed a particularly good time with your friends or family at a burger place and you’ll equate the taste of a good burger with those pleasant memories for the rest of your life.
Some of those standards may be based on familiarity. You’ve been eating a particular brand or style of burger for most of your life and it’s simply how you accept that burgers should taste. Burger places that are both numerous and local can win over whole populations that get used to the taste of their burgers.
Quality is King
The fairest way to judge the taste of burgers is to start with the ingredients. The basic ingredients of a burger are nearly universal. You have an all-beef patty sandwiched between two halves of a bun. That’s it. Cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, sauces and everything else that add to the taste of a burger is extra, but always desired. That’s why choosing one burger over another is so difficult.
There is one overriding factor that causes one burger to be favoured over another that nobody can argue, and that’s quality. The quality of the beef is paramount, as that’s the main ingredient of the burger. A patty can be flavourless if it doesn’t contain enough fat, and greasy if it contains too much.
Preparation can also play a part in the quality of the burger. The patty should be well-seasoned before cooking. It’s amazing how much seasonings can play a part in the quality of the burger. Ground meat should always be cooked medium-well to well-done. But a well-prepared burger doesn’t have to be cooked to the point of becoming dry.
A flavourful, high-quality bun and fresh toppings are the next step in building the perfect burger. The toppings should add to the burger’s flavour and not overpower it. Too many people think a burger is not complete unless it’s dripping with cheese and the toppings overwhelm it.
