Happiness in a bun
There is never a bad day for a hearty, juicy burger and when your craving strikes, here are 20 places you can go to satisfy it. Spend your cheat day right stuffing your face silly with some of KL’s best burgers.
1. Buns & Meat
Plain and simple, Buns & Meat goes straight to the point and lets you know that they’re in the business of anything related to buns and meat. While pork burgers can be found in almost every corner of Klang Valley now, Buns & Meat goes the extra mile and adds a dash of magic by combining a juicy, thick slab of pork patty with sweet roasted char siew – so sinful you’ll need to spend the next few days in repentance for the damage to your waistline.
Address: 72A, Jalan Tasik Utama 7, Lakefield, Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur
2. Killer Gourmet Burgers (KGB)
It is easy to tell KGB apart from the rest of its burger counterparts by their signature stamped burger buns but what truly distinguishes them is their 100% Australian grass-fed beef patties – oozing with flavours and dripping with juiciness. Top off your burger order with KGB’s kimchi fries – an umami explosion you can’t stop eating.

3. Kissaten Coffee & Restaurant
Kissaten is ideally known as a Japanese fusion restaurant but they do serve some mean monstrous burgers worth a mention.

From bun-free burgers to peppercorn crusted patties, The Grind continues to surprise us especially with their unconventional hand-pressed rice buns. Talk about an Asian invasion on a Western favourite!

You can expect to see minor but genius additions and flavours such as almond flake toppings, raisin balsamic vinaigrette and barbecue aioli – small zings but significant differences. Another thing to note just to get you salivating is that their cheese is prepared by first steaming it then pouring it over a thick, juicy pork patty for that extra melty mess.
