After Burger Bakar Abang Burn released their ‘cheese lebur’ menu last month, it became a huge hit in KL and other states where they are also operating at. Recently, they have introduced new burger called Burger Pepper Cheese Tarik. Important note: this burger is not suitable for those who are allergic to nuts.
Each burger (available in beef only) is RM12.90 and the patty is first dipped into pepper sauce before being given a bath of melted Mozzarella cheese. Clearly, it’s inspired by McDonald’s Prosperity Burger but with a cheesey twist for a discerning flavor.
Their homemade black pepper sauce is made using 5 different types of peppers, including an imported Pink Peppercorn from Peru. I did a little investigation of my own and found that these unassuming looking Peruvian peppercorns are really expensive, almost like a luxury spice prized for its distinctive nutty flavor.
A small bottle that weighs 25g is being sold at the supermarkets for more than RM85, so you can say it’s the wagyu of pepper. The pepper sauce is cooked at the stalls and restaurants daily instead of being delivered in bags, so it doesn’t contain any preservatives and you can be assured of the freshness.
That said, they might face have some consistency and quality control issues across the outlets because of this. For that reason and more importantly for first timers, it would be a better idea to have the burgers at their HQ in Ampang or at the Klang branch.
Burger Pepper Cheese Tarik with additional Cheddar cheese @ RM14.40.
This one’s with extra Cheddar cheese and beef strips @ RM16.40. It’s only natural that people will start comparing Abang Burn’s pepper burger with McD’s, I did my little own comparison too. I think if you really love the taste of pepper, no doubt you will find both companies’ burgers enjoyable.
But if you prefer a stronger and richer tasting pepper sauce that literally sticks to the back of your throat, then go for Abang Burn’s, as the flavor is at least 3 times more intense. I also like the idea of complementing the overall experience with cheese to balance up the spiciness.
By the way if you haven’t had their burgers topped with melted Raclette cheese (or Mozzarella cheese) yet, you should probably try that first.
