Burgers to die for?

The popular Bangsar burger joint.


Known affectionately by all as KGB, Killer Gourmet Burgers is a charming little burger joint nestled right next to Milk and Butter in Bangsar. I think most of the customers usually pack their burgers to go, but there is enough seating space inside if you're more keen of having your burgers fresh on the spot. The decor is all flaming reds and faux wood walls with black accents throughout; a fitting colour scheme for a place that serves burgers packed with smoky, grilled meat.

There's a little something for everyone here. A few choice items on the menu are even suitable for vegetarians too, by making use of Portobello mushrooms. All orders are made at the counter, and you can catch a glimpse of burgers being crafted in the background while the sizzle of meat patties fills the air.

Inside KGB.


I visited KGB on a sunny Saturday afternoon, and there were quite a lot of customers tucking into their burgers.

The burgers usually come on their own, but you can pay an additional RM5.50 for a combo meal. Nick and I decided to go combo for both our burgers, so they were served to us with fries and a bottled drink - they serve the drinks in old school glass bottles, and that really added to the burger joint experience. You can choose seasonings to go with the fries, and both of us got the fries with the cajun option. It's nice, but not particularly fantastic.

The main event was of course the burgers themselves. Nick's choice was a beef Tornado, a beautifully packed burger with a juicy patty, onion rings, a sunny side egg and buffalowing aioli. What a great combination! The egg and onion rings really gave it that extra oomph and texture.

As for me, I decided to give the Truffle'd Swiss Mushroom a try. It's been a while since I'd eaten any swiss mushroom burgers, and an even longer time since I was last fully satisfied with one. I'm sure we've all had the unfortunate experience of finding a measly two or three slices of mushrooms to go with a burger. But KGB really delivered with this one; the juicy mushroom slices were packed in generously, and I had the pleasure of catching some as they slid out from under the toasted bun. I'm afraid the photo I took doesn't really do it justice.

All things considered, I really enjoyed my lunch here. The burger was great, and the atmosphere was casual and comfortable. There's no need to hesitate with attacking your food with your bare hands either, as there's a sink tucked away in the corner for your convenience. However, the burgers here can get quite pricey. I spent more than RM26 for my burger combo, and while I was suitably stuffed by the end of my meal, I do know I can get bigger portions with the same price at different restaurants. But it should be noted that my burger was the most expensive on the menu. Even so, if you're looking for a delicious gourmet burger, KGB is a great place for it.

Your Comment
The have a good selection of beef and chicken burgers, but I think they could have done with a few more veggie options. Not all vegetarians necessarily like mushrooms.
