Eat: Go Burger Kitchen, Puchong

Remember my last post about the burgers in Smashies? I said then that, there are so many burgers joint mushrooming faster than I can say “Buuuurgers”. Well, guess what there’s another new burger place and this time, it’s at Setiawalk, Puchong.

* * * * * * * * * *

Before I go on about the food, let me just say that I hate that place. Setiawalk is the new hip and happening place to be in Puchong area, especially among couples, families and the young people. The concept is lovely, they have a lake(?)-ish place and boardwalk with restaurants lined alongside. But, parking there is absolutely horrible. It is very confusing and the spaces are very weirdly allocated albeit, being pretty huge. And it turns out that I parked close to the mall area when the restaurants were actually miles away from the mall. =.=” Like wtf. So, if you are heading to the restaurants, park near the blocks. It’s like office blocks at the higher floor and restaurants at the ground floor.

Now, finding this place is also a pain. I was there early, but I actually got lost trying to find Go Burger Kitchen. To make matters worse, I didn’t see any directory around the area. I walked for at least 30 minutes with my heels, before I finally found it. It was located on the first floor, so you would have to take the stairs up. You can take the stairs up once you see BMS Organics. If you take the lift, look out for the door scribbled with words (as shown in the picture above) because you will be greeted by doors when you take the lift up.

Now that I know such paint existed, I am so going to paint my wall with this paint.

So anyway, let’s get on with the burgers shall we? They will be pictures of a number of the burgers but I only managed to try a few of the burgers. So for those that I did try, I’ll comment on them but those that I hadn’t, well you be the judge yourself from the pictures, yea?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Hungry Hog, RM25 | Two pork patties, double cheese, double bacon, onions, pickles, lettuce and tomatoes

I had a taste of the patty and I quite like it. It was marinated well, but the patty were thinner than what I was used to. The charcoal bun was soft and easy to eat. (I didn’t really get a taste of this burger, just the patty.) If you’re wondering where the bacon is in the picture above, it was because of the angle of the picture taken. You’ll find the double bacon below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASwiss Piggy, RM20 | Pork patty, swiss cheese, sautéed mushrooms and grilled onions

The mushrooms used here were Champignon mushrooms, which pretty much reminds me canned button mushrooms that my mom used to cook. I found it funny that they used this mushroom to sautéed as I would have chosen to use Swiss brown instead. They are more flavorful, IMHO. This is the Go Burger Kitchen’s best seller. Looks delish, right?


Go! Chicken, RM18 | Grilled chicken breast, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce and tomato

I love the sesame buns used for this burger, it is such a nice change compared to the common black charcoal buns. Nowadays, everyone is going black and that becomes the norm. The cheese appears somewhat transparent here because it was flame grilled before being served.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGo! Vege, RM15 | Mushroom, cheese, hash brown patty, onions, lettuce and tomato

Vegetarian burger have never looked so good before, I would actually eat this burger. Although I would say the price is a bit steep for a vege burger. The next few burgers are ones that I actually tried and tasted, so I guess the review actually starts here. :) Also, point to note that these burgers are actually part of a special menu in which the recipes are still a work-in-progress.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADas Nürnberger, RM35 | Nürnberger sausage patty, grilled onions, double cheese, bacon and mustard

This is probably the most hideous looking burger I have ever seen, but it was also the first and the best sausage burger I have ever tasted. It is served rolled up, logically it isn’t the typical type of burger to eat using your hands, I used a knife and a fork to eat this. The sausage was really tasty with spices and the beef bacon was just mhmm-awesome. Usually served with pork bacon which apparently, would be a better pairing. Also, this burger is pricier than the rest because it is 5oz compared to the 4oz patties.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEl Chorizo, RM27 | Pork patty, Chorizo sausages, double cheese, GBK salsa, pringles

I have never tasted Chorizo sausages and I had no idea they were this tasty. It was slightly spicy and totally flavorful. I really suck at describing flavors, but this is the bomb. The sausages are imported from Spain, so you can be assured that this is as authentic as it can get. I don’t know what to say about having Pringles in the burger, it’s a nice touch but one I don’t feel necessary. (Maybe cause I ate it separately.) Also, I didn’t really taste any salsa sauce in this, but overall I loved the burger.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Goblin, RM27 | Beef patty, grilled beef bacon and cream mustard spinach

I CAN HAZ 10 OF THIS AND I WILL DIE HAPPY. I’m dead serious about how good this was. But, this is just my opinion okay, don’t come and hunt me down when if you didn’t like it that much as I do. It’s a downright, super simple burger, even you can make it at home if you’re like a chef. But no one, has ever thought of marrying creamy spinach with patties so kudos to Chef Rao. He is the chef and the owner of Go Burger Kitchen, super nice and friendly guy. He appreciates comments on his burgers, so the next time you’re there, let him know what you liked or disliked about the burgers.

If I am not mistaken most of the the burgers have tomato paste as a base and if it comes with cheese, it would be flame grilled with a torch. All burgers comes with fries (made in house, with no added preservatives) and a drink.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHAHA | The guys at GBK have a really good sense of humor. :)

P5240035 <3 | I do, and I’m definitely going back. Especially so, because Chef Rao said he’ll make even more improvements on the burger.
