Burgers & Sausages @ German Deli Imbiss, Ara Damansara, Petaling Jaya


chopped meat burger with beef bacon and cheese (RM11.80+)

Mention sausages and Splashie Boy's eyes will light up immediately....hence when he saw the reference to this place in a local paper, he jumped up and declared we had to eat this for lunch. Since we rarely venture into Ara Damansara, we got a little lost looking for the deli. Among the car workshops, an NGV installer, coffeeshops, you have this place that looks similar to a fast food joint.

french fries that won't give McD's a run for their money

There was quite a decent crowd of people hanging around tucking into sausages, so I left the ordering to Splashie Boy. We decided to share a sausage set and a burger with beef bacon and cheese. First, we were served french fries. Nothing fantastic, these were slightly soft and not crisp like the ones they serve at McDonalds.


oozing cheese filled Balkan Cheese Krainer with mashed potatoes (RM10.50+)

The sausage didn't impress also - thick rubbery skin slathered in a very dark brown sauce, which I felt was too salty. Personally, we both felt this failed the sausage test as the skin doesn't have the crunch we both like nor did it taste anything similar to a bratwurst. Since the mash potatoes was also drenched in that "oh very salty" sauce, I didn't really enjoy it also.

Instead what impressed us was their gourmet burger - purely for its texture, as this place chops the meat versus grinding it. The coarse texture of the burger makes it a better bite but it does lack the juiciness I like in my burgers probably due to the size of the patty (about 150 grams). It will be interesting to try their Cordon Bleu burger, which is 300 grams instead ( I just saw another blog's picture - looks like they stack two 150 gram patties on top of each other, so I guess size will not matter). One word of warning though - the buns are not toasted enough so the bread tends to be quite soft. Moreover, they slather on the sauce here so expect a very soggy burger and trouble handling it especially if you eat with your hands.

Final verdict for this place - go for the burgers but ask them to go easy on the sauces (unless you like soggy burgers) or ask for the sauce on the side. Do give the sausages a miss, as they aren't worth it since they taste very similar to Ayamas Premium sausages. However, if you do insist on ordering them, I suggest you ask for the sauce on the side so the saltiness does not kill your tastebuds (and appetite).

Wow! The cheese filled sausage is making me drool. I'm curious to find out how the gravy taste like? I might consider cooking it this way when I get my next supply of fresh sausages.

Bacon the missing link found. Bacon with shrimps, with eggs, even asparagus ....

Jason said...

Pictures look good... shame about the taste though. Like my fries thicker cut than McD's shoestrings so those might work for me...

i eat there once in a while. quite like the double patty one. they use some sort of sauce that has a curryish aftertaste.

the currywurst is not bad but i dont like their normal sausages (and i think their chicken sausage is a bit better than their beef ones).

yes the burger can be a bit dry. ask them not to overcook it.

pity they dont open on sundays.

Dear boo,

Is your email still at boo_liciouskl at yahoo dot com? I have sent you an email there but no response yet from you. Would appreciate if you could check your email.

mimid3vils said...

Nicholas Chan said...

Precious Pea said...

Quite deceiving by just looking at the food cos they sure look yummy.

email2me said...

First time I heard a German restaurant Halal. From the look, I can say Azim's burger shack can beat them already.

CUMI & CIKI said...

Karen said...

criz - gravy tastes like a brown sauce gravy. Usually when I cook my sausages at home I make one with thinly shredded onions.

j2kfm - LOL, then McDs will be charging Carl Jr's prices with all that extra bacon.

worldwindows - yeah, more of that sinful stuff, please.

jason - before NZX, near the entrance of ara dsara.

boo_licious said...

ling239 - off the road towards Subang Airport...and near NZX.

550ml jar of faith - yeah, those at McDs are matchstick size but crispy though.

thxs for the tips, lanatir.

niz - sorry, maybe can send again. I get a lot of spam so maybe it went there??? unless you label it properly?

mimi - cool, am glad you love sausages too!

nicholas - kinda like the ayamas ones!

precious pea - maybe my tastebuds different??

email2me - yeah, Azim's is definitely better. The German owner married a Malay lady, so it is now halal.

long time no see foodcrazee! Glad to see you around.

cumi & ciki - yeah, appearances maybe deceiving...

thxs karen.
