Juicy burger @ City Golf, Bangsar Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur

gorgeous juicy burger...found in the most unlikely place!

A very very quick one for Friday, as I am late for the day. Let me share a little secret with all of you, one of the places, I get tips where to find good food - the
Klue Magazine's website. I found this juicy nugget of a place in Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC) from reading them. These guys and gals are always on the ball, telling you what is new and hot in town. For instance, I just found out about Nerofico, Nerovivo/Neroteca's newly opened sister in Damansara Heights. Gosh, I am so going there as soon as possible since I often find going down town to experience good Italian food a chore for me.

french fries were just average but I liked how they served Thai Chili sauce with it

Back to this place. BSC has been going through loads of changes with its renovations and one of it was the opening of My Playroom, all the way upstairs to take over the space of the bowling alley. Now it sports an indoor golf simulation centre (Citygolf), a kids roller skating rink, a kids playground and etc, geared towards the young ones. The golf place is very cool for those who don't want to get burned under the sun and prefer to enjoy their strokes in the air-conditioned comfort. I call it a big Wii, complete with the fake green, golf clubs and golf balls.

Since people need to eat while they golf away, right next to the place is a cafe cum bar (they serve alcohol here), which serves a very small menu of items - 3 pizzas, 3 sandwiches and a few snacks like french fries, nuggets and etc. I had the roast chicken sandwich (RM18) - a bit dry I felt and Splashie Boy had the Chef's Special Burger (RM20). They didn't ask the temperature we wanted the burger at, just if we preferred it medium or medium well. It took a while to get to us (not sure if that is usually the case) but then the golf centre was packed with people. When it came and we both bit into the burger, we forgave them for their tardiness as the burger was really good stuff - juicy meat within! We both loved the lightly toasted buns also (not pictured). The fries served with it was just average tasting but I did like how they gave Thai Chili sauce with the ketchup and chili sauce. Sorry for the not fantastic pictures but I was a bit hampered from snapping away since one of the owners/managers sat across us, hence as usual I was feeling shy to whip up my camera. I basically had to sneak two quick shots of the burger when he walked off for a few minutes!

I also spied the next table having pizza; looks very good with a thin crust and served on top of a wooden board. Looks like we have a new hangout place in BSC since I am kinda fed up and bored with the other choices. My Playroom also has another cafe at the other side nearer to the roller blade (amended from roller only to distinguish!) skating rink called Stuff My Face Cafe, that serves kid snacks (I spied mini burgers!) and etc. For more details on My Playroom and what it offers, see this NST write up (with the pix of the rink!).

worldwindows said...

The patty is thick and luscious. This is a real burger.

boo_licious said...

precious pea - LOL! I'm a lousy bowler, always get longkangs but I don't mind it is great fun.

thenomadGourmand - thxs! The roller skating rink seems to be for kids though. Am also keen to go try the other cafe, see how.

worldwindows - been having burger fever recently! this one is good, different from Haikara which is finely minced, this one has texture like it has been handchopped.

yeah, klue is a great source for new eateries, though there's a lot in their print editions that don't make it on their website! timeout kl is also decent. and it's worth browing through expatriate lifestyle at the bookstore too.
i tried city golf on klue's recommendation too. the burger was ok, but i wasn't wowed. i enjoyed the rocket, feta and walnut pizza though. it's not as good as klue made it sound, but it was still worth the visit.
am looking forward to checking out nero fica too. i hear that it's a pork-free restaurant though. so no parma ham!

fatboybakes said...

oooh, how interesting! roller skating? wow.... still got such thing ah?

boo_licious said...

fbb - I hope that is correct. From the pix, it looks like those blade ones? I better go amend that.

sean - ah, must go eat that pizza as it looked good. Yes, nerofica is definitely on the cards for this weekend!
