Uncle Ben's Burger Babi



Yep. You read that right.


Babi as in Malay for pork. For the non initiated, do not be confused with Barbie, which is actually a very expensive female brain shaping tool (read: Bimbo mind control) and yes, its inedible (read: food poisoning).

And I came across the booth in Ming Tien Foodcourt located in Taman Mayang. Just to see the booth there really caught my by surprise. This is because you hardly see that word pasted so obviously on a sign board in a multicultural 1Malaysia. Not only that, I was surprised that I was surprised being surprised by that fact since I used to be not surprised at all.

And so, as it happens, I was feeling a bit too full since we had some heavy lunch and running out of excuses, I ordered the burger there and then. There is nothing special about this booth, even though it was opened yesterday. I mean, how different can it be if you're so used to Ramly Burgers? The only difference is that I can see two blokes slaving away on a hot grill.

But when I took the first bite, everything changed.

If you have watched the cartoon Ratatouille where there is a scene when the famous food critic Antono Ego first tasted the ratatouille. His first bite took him back to his childhood days, reminding him of the very same dish his mother used to cook. Well, I almost had the same effect. I said almost because at that time, I don't recall eating pork burgers.

But I can tell you this: It is delicious! Compared to burgers from the Clown House, this one just melts in your mouth and yes, you can taste the 1mm thick cheese in there. And the taste, is unlike anything in the World.

Trust me, this is not Uncle Ben.

No, really. This is not Uncle Ben.
Maybe I was expecting a white-
haired old guy with a 2 foot long

This is what I think, was a Porky or something.
I can't remember since I am bow blogging about
it just after 2 weeks. But its the top of the range
in the menu and has three porky slices.

Using a pair of chopsticks to 'align; the patties
back, they just melted. Yes, there is a slight
problem in that their burger tends to lean over.
Which tempts you to eat it with your hands
since using just your mouth is a bit too obscene.

Of course, as a side order, you get a packet of crisps
which I gave it to Kaelynn and as expected, both of
them wanted to fight over it.
