Happy Jack's Gourmet Burgers @ Devi's Corner, Desa Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur

I'm hooked on the Royale Mushroom beef burger

I've got an eternal thing going with burgers - they seem to be my reach-to-for food whenever the night falls and I'm kinda short of ideas on what to eat. When I first started working, the Ramly burger man was my saviour especially when we were crunching up numbers till late night. There was something so satisfying about biting into a sloppy Ramly burger laden with ketchup and mayonnaise that offered up some solace for the late nights. After Ramly, came the Otai burgerman, a place I often went for a quick bite since food choices were limited around the area I lived in.

Now I reckon I've graduated to the mother of all burgers - the gourmet type that ain't found in swanky restaurants but is still available at the street corner until late at night when those pangs hit the tummy. Last weekend, we inadvertently came across this reference for Happy Jack's burger on Facebook and the idea of gourmet burgers got us salivating.

juicy goodness

A quick visit to Devi's Corner at Desa Sri Hartamas confirmed it for both of us - we're officially hooked on Happy Jack's Burger. Splashie Boy had the Luv-A-Lamb (RM5.95 plus RM1.15 for extra cheese) of course (he never says no to lamb burgers!) and it was excellent - juicy and tender with melted cheese around it. My Royale mushroom beef burger (RM5.35) was just as good, topped with a creamy mushroom sauce.

We liked how the burgers were juicy yet not sloppy until you messed up your face when eating it. Sometimes I find the other stalls produce a soggy type of burger with juices that seep into the bun making it a mess to eat. The burgers were so good, we packed an extra Royale black pepper chicken burger (RM4.95) - even after a ride home it wasn't soggy and the black pepper sauce that topped the chicken patty tasted quite homemade even though it lacked much kick to it. Give it a try and if you love homecooked tastes, you'll love it. If you don't, then I reckon you may just be more attuned towards the artificial tasting mass produced meat patties.

ooh, i love the opening hours, the look of the burgers and the prices! if i hadn't already showered, i'd be tempted to drive out right now to try all three varieties! :D
i used to grab mcdonald's a lot after work, back in the old days. just head to the drive-thru, buy a big mac, fries and a sundae and munch on all of it while heading home...

hmmm... something to ponder! I have stopped eating supper for the longest time due to my waistline (of course) but this might just make an exception... sigh!

qwazymonkey - Devi's seems to have dropped in stds though, wasn't too impressed with their service.

J - awww, sorree to make u crave for burger but it's awfully good stuff.

Sean - yes, fast food is another saviour of my crazy life!!

leo - eat this for dinner instead of supper. We did.

C&C - cumi hates them sloppy? Then this is good - juicy but not dry! It kept dry even after a long journey home.

Bsar Babe - u can always go to the other outlets? I think the Wangsa Maju one is their first outlet.

you should try the lamb burger at the gerai next to the balai polis at mutiara damansara. it's the same row as the al-madinah mamak and near a 7-11. really amazing. better than jack's, i dare say!!

boo_licious said...

Wow Junee, sounds like a great recommendation! Thanks. Will definitely swing by and give it a try.
