KGB in TTDI has been in operation since March this year but I only popped by recently to see what they had to offer. Thing is, when there’s an outlet in Bangsar, I don’t feel the need to go that far for a burger fix. Surely you agree with me. ;)
But rif insisted on going beyond our comfort zone that night, so we found ourselves in the lastest KGB outlet along Jalan Aminuddin Baki where it’s more spacious but still, a full house. I didn’t go for my usual pick (Bash) this time around — instead, I ordered the KGB Spiked (RM16.90), where the patty is crust seared and topped with cheddar, bacon and house special sauce.
The patty was cooked to medium doneness and tasted as good as I remember it to be. rif ordered the Animal (RM14.90),a simple burger with sharp cheddar, caramelized onions and shack sauce. This too, retained its standard like the outlet in Bangsar.
What’s new is their selection of fried chicken wings done in five different styles. We tried four varieties — K-Pop, Buffalo Wings, The Golden Egg and Atomic Nashville (RM13.90 for 6 pcs. RM14.90 for a half-half). Of the four, my top pick is Atomic Nashville, addictively spicy and crispy on the outside. I love how the heat lingers on and cuts through the meat so you also get flavour in the middle.
Buffalo Wings were also pretty good, made with American Buffalo hotsauce for that added oomph. You can opt to add blue cheese dip and celery stick for RM2, but I feel it’s good on its own. rif liked The Golden Egg where the fried chicken wings are coated in salted egg yolk and served with jalapeno slices for a fiery bite.
While I’m generally a big fan of Korean fried chicken, the K-Pop failed to impress. I didn’t find the spicy bean glaze particularly interesting and while they served it with fresh kimchi, I was hoping the kimchi flavour was in the chicken instead.
The Salted Caramel Pralines milkshake (RM12) used to be thicker and creamier if I remember correctly. This version was lacking body, though the flavour was pretty spot on. Service wasn’t tip top when we were there — it was a full house so things got a little chaotic. Be prepared to wait in the queue during peak hours. Our waiter however, was friendly and entertaining so that helped with our dining experience.
Food: 7/10 (pork free)
Verdict: Food was pretty consistent with the Bangsar outlet. At least for me.
