You may or may not notice, but most burger restaurants/stalls around Sunway and Subang Jaya are usually halal (no pork served) for a few reasons:
- Some of them are owned by Malays.
- As for non-Malays owners, having a halal status for their restaurant is essential especially in this country to be able to cater to a wider range of the population.
- Not many are experts in making pork patties. With the level of competitiveness of burgers in SS15, you wouldn’t want to risk selling an average burger in the market.
Burgertory identifies their burger style to be gourmet. “High quality” is their middle name in terms of not only their ingredients, but also the environment of their restaurant. If you’re up for juicy pork patties going more than an inch in height complimented by a soft, self-made bun, this is the place for you. This is also an excellent place for vegetarians who wish to try out their 100% homemade veggie patties.
What to expect:
- The price: The cheapest burger you can get is RM12.00 (one of the vege burgers). No burger is complete without a soft drink and fries so to top up your meal to a set; it costs RM5.00 for fries and bottomless soft drink or RM9.00 for the Fry Combo which has additional onion rings and mozzarella cheese stick.
- The crowd: Their opening hours are from 6.00 p.m. – 11.00 p.m. from Tuesdays to Sundays. It’s best to come earlier before their patties are finished, but if you wish to avoid the peak hour, come after 8.00 p.m. Based on previous experience, their burgers can be sold out by 9.00 p.m. over the weekend.
- Simple-looking burgers: They are not burger artists so don’t expect to see a piece of hash brown between the buns or peculiar flavours like peanut butter.
- Really good fries: I particularly like how they put in an effort to make their fries exceptional. They are season with herbs and are served along with their homemade sauce.
This is their latest burger which was introduced in April and also my personal favourite:
Mascarpone Curry & Cheese [RM15.00]
(this burger came with the Fry Combo set with onion rings and mozzarella cheese for RM9.00)
According to a few friends, the Swine Bacon & Cheese (pork patty) and the Farmer’s Fungi (vege burger) are also recommended. Note that they only serve pork and beef meats.
To get there, take a cab from Monash University Sunway campus to 8A, Jalan SS15/4D, Subang Jaya. Ensure that the taxi driver takes a turn into the road at McDonald’s. The restaurant is located at the end of the row of shops (before Maybank) located on the top floor. For more information on the taxi fare, please refer to my previous article.
To get there by public transport, take Metro Bus 10 from the bus-stop outside Sunway Pyramid near Haagen-Dazs and stop off at the SS14 shop lots. Keep a look out for a sign that says INTI on the right side of the road when you’re about to alight. Take the overhead bridge to land you in SS15 and you should see RHB bank. Walk towards the opposite end of the shop lot (opposite end of McDonald’s) and Burgertory is just before the end of the lot.
Note: Payment can only be made in cash at the moment.
