Burgertory @ SS15 Subang Jaya - Great Pork Burgers

It was a ordinary gathering of friends who haven't seen each other for a while - we were chirpy and thrilled to be each other's company and was so eager to catch up.

Not forgetting the obvious choice of restaurant - a burger joint, handpicked by me, clearly still not over my burger spree just yet.


Less than six months old, Burgertory has already garnered a comfortable crowd of followings - especially amongst those who live nearby, college kids and eminently, burger lovers.

When we arrived, it was a little after 6pm and we were the first customers for the day. By the time we left at 8, Saturday night dinner was well on its way to bustling.

Burgatory has that industrial look that's so prevailing right now in burger joints - exposed pipes, light bulb lightings, long communal tables and wooden benches along a narrow diner space but good enough to accommodate about 55 pax per seating.

The menu is essentially quite straightforward - Pork, Beef or Vegan.

Despite my best efforts to contain my hunger, my stomach was growling. Thank God I was kept occupied - sidetracked by loads of conversation and never ending stories being told by my friends.

Moo Classic. Rm14.00. 
The burger was a classic - 100% grain fed beef patty topped with a slice of melted cheddar and salad.

From the looks of it though, the beef patty came way too loose - it was on the verge of falling apart. Moreover, my friend was complaining that the portion was just too small for his liking; I thought mine was fine - with boys being boys like that.
Burgertory Classic. Rm13.00.

Being one of Burgertory's classic, of course I had high expectations - 100% premium pork patty.

The classic sesame seed bun was ideal; The juicy pork patty was perfectly matched with the sharp tang of house dressing and melted cheese on a bed of salad underneath it. It was a classic, no frills and good value burger. 

I thought the pork pattywas generously on the thick side - too thick in fact; I made one sloppy mess. If I could tweak an otherwise wholesome burger, I would very much prefer a flatter patty. That said, I know there's an on going trend of having really tall burgers nowadays.

Burgatory Treasure. Rm13.00.

The only difference between this and the classic - is the additional crispy pork lard, which unfortunately was barely there. Apart from that, this great tasting burger was moist and chunky, precisely as it was intended to be.
I also opted for the set meal since they were currently running a promotion of free upsizing to the Burgatory fry combo at 5 bucks - glad I did.

The chips were superb - well cooked and seasoned, crisp and not too greasy. The onion rings and fried fish cubes was equally good.

Swine Bacon and Cheese. Rm16.00.

Having the extra bacon that came with the burger was a welcome change and really worked to enhance the pork flavour that can sometimes be overwhelming to the palette. This could potentially be a winning if the pork bacon had been grilled to a char grilled brown.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10, could possibly be upgraded should the size of the patty be standardized. I may return to be burganized again.

If it weren't for the tip given by a couple of food bloggers, I wouldn't be able to locate this place - the signboard was particularly obscure. Located right upstairs of Guardian SS15, facing the main roads.
