myBurgerLab

This homegrown chain hardly needs introduction, having been making speciality gourmet burgers since 2012. Their creative approach to burgers, always served in the signature black charcoal buns, has kept patrons come back for more. One of its star burgers is the Salted Egg Yolk Burger, complete with a juicy fried chicken thigh topped with homemade salted egg yolk sauce. Then there is the Hangover, which pairs the beef patty with a golden hash brown and drizzled in maple syrup—a heavenly combination of sweet and savoury!

The Daily Grind

Reportedly the first gourmet burger restaurant in KL, The Daily Grind has maintained a high standard throughout the years. A highlight here is the Mini Burger Sampler, a trio of its bestselling burgers made into sliders. It includes the Japanese Yodel (beef with cheese fondue and mushroom tempura), Lamburgerni (grilled lamb patty with tomato sauce, pesto and grilled vegetables) and Classic Chicken Cheese.

Spade's Burger

Its mission is to create 'better burgers', as its tagline goes. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in the Japanese-influenced Porkception, a combination of pork patty, sautéed pork belly and teriyaki mayo, which is sinfully good. The Pandora burger is also a must-try, thanks to the crispy fried pork fillet stuffed with cheese and salted egg sauce paired with charred salted egg seaweed slaw. Hurry though as the latter is available for a limited period only.

Fowlboys

A bonus entry since it sits in the grey area of what is considered a burger, Fowlboys is a rare find in Malaysia with its southern American-style fried chicken sandwich. The only thing available on Fowlboys' menu is variations of these sandwiches since they have all but mastered the art of fried chicken. The O.G. Sandwich is a definite must-try for first-timers. It comprises of a juicy buttermilk fried chicken thigh with spicy mayo, fowl jam and jalapeños between potato bread. You can customise your order based on spice level.
