A Minor Place

It doesn’t take much effort to put together a burger – two half-buns, processed patty, mustard, ketchup, cheese and you have one. A mediocre one, that is. What many burgers have in common are frozen, processed patties. And while I love my Ramly burger, I occasionally enjoy a good burger made from scratch. The patty, at least.

AMP Porky-riffic Burger

A Minor Place in Plaza Damas is said to serve a pretty decent pork burger for under RM20. A supposed good pork burger for less than twenty bucks sounded like a good deal. The AMP Porky-riffic Burger (RM18.50) comprised pork patty, crispy bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce and BBQ sauce. I wanted to add a sunny side up to my burger, but the waitress declined to oblige. According to her, no extras were allowed despite me telling her I was prepared to pay extra for the egg.

Thick patty

F for service, and a B- for the burger. The burger would have warranted a B+ had there been an egg, but the less luxurious version was decent. If you like your pork patty nicely seasoned, you will prefer this version to The Elk’s. I like them both but because I was denied that one egg, I get to be biased.

Fish & Chips

rif’s Fish & Chips (RM16.50) was nothing to shout about. The breaded exterior of the dory fillet was too hard and put up some resistance against my knife. I also didn’t like the tartar sauce provided – it probably came from a jar. Skip the cheesy fries (RM9.50) at all cost, unless you have a soft spot for ketchup or can’t tell the difference between ketchup and diced tomatoes (tomato concasse).

Cheesy Fries

I would actually come back for the pork burger since it’s reasonable and fairly decent in size. Maybe I should head over to the mamak across the road to buy my sunny side up, lest my request for an extra egg is unsuccessful.

Ambiance: 6/10
Price: 6/10
Food: 5.5/10 (non halal)
Verdict: Only the pork burger was noteworthy. Hopefully, you’ll be luckier than I was with the extra egg request.

    You are being really mean, the cafe might need time to improve but doesn’t mean you should insult them for their mistakes. I know everyone has their own opinion but don’t you think the way you wrote about them is really hurtful?

      Sorry you feel offended by my review. But my experience here was hardly a pleasant one, hence my opinion. Hopefully when I visit them in the near future, I will enjoy better service and food.
