Penang - Raja Burger Malaysia?

Mamak Burger!

Who doesn't know about Penang Gurney Drive. It's such a famous hawker food haunt (though I wouldn't say the food there is good). My sis discovered this very interesting combination of East meets West innovation.

The owner, Mr Azlan Shah and Ibrahim runs the stall here. You can find many many types of burgers and kebabs from Super Burger, Royal Deluxe Burger, Prawn Burger to all types of Kebabs from Tuekey Kebabs, Mutton Kebabs to Shammi Kebabs.

Location : Gurney Drive, Penang (5pm-12am)
Rating : Interesting

My sister ordered a Minced Meat Dosai and a Royal Deluxe Burger. The sheer size of both the burgers already sent a shock to me. It's almost 18cm in diameter, and you can see how thick it is in the photo below.

Luckily, they are considerate enough to cut it into 4 pieces or I believe we are going to have hell of a problem trying to hold everything together.

How does it taste like? All I can say is that it tastes like a murtabak with the skin made of bun. What's more, the meat is also added with cashew nuts, raisins and spices that reminded me of briyani rice. It is truly a combination by a western mamak.

But taste wise, it really depends on your personal preference. I don't really fancy it for being too heavily laced with spices. And I feel that the spices do not really blend in that well. Nevertheless, it is an interesting find. What do you think?
