A week or two ago, we visited Curee – Curee @ Jalan Imbi – Good food, awesome ambiance. , right? On our way out, as we were driving passed the eatery, we took that opportunity to look around and see if there were other restaurants/cafe that appealed to us. While most of it were occupied by “Mamaks” and the Middle Eastern variety, in the midst of it all was Burger on 16.
If you are in the city and you really are in need of some quiet, alone time – this would be an eatery to consider. Located just 5-10 minutes away from Berjaya Times Square, Burger on 16 offers you a comfortable and cozy avenue for that much needed ‘get away’ time, especially when all the hustle and bustle of the city life gets to you. I’d say the food here is decently priced too. Some might even say a tad cheaper than whats offered in other cafes and that itself does hold a certain appeal – does it not?
*** In regards to parking – it depends on whether it is your lucky day. When I visited Curee , I parked by the roadside illegally – dont judge me, I was simply following the crowd 😀 Anyways, I did not see any tow trucks roaming around. This time however, there were tow trucks literally roaming, towing cars. We decided to take the risk and parked directly in front the eatery, so that we could keep an eye on it. I am sure you guys know the drill – if ever the tow truck decided today would be the day they make a victim of my car – I’d make a run for it with my car even before they start on the clamping. ** Evil Laugh** Well, you could always park in the building opposite these row of shops or even park at Times Square, take a slow walk to this eatery. It isnt far at all, no sweat or simply wait around at the side of the road, some one is bound to pull out eventually.
As its name suggest – burgers are the main dish offered here. They also offer chicken wings and other sides in additions to desserts like molten lava cake and milkshakes. Based on the information available online, this eatery is Halal.
Chicken Phenomena, 17.90 ringgit + Sweet Potato Fries, 5.50 ringgit + Hot & Spicy Buffalo Wings, 14.90 ringgit + Spicy French Fries, 4.50 ringgit
Between the combos and a la carte – we opted for the latter. Why? because their most popular burger (Chicken) was not available in the Combo/Set option. I wanted to give their popular burger a try, so a la carte was best + a side of sweet potato fries. The chicken patty that accompanied the burger was not fried but grilled. It was nicely flavored, with a spread of green secret sauce, it made for a delicious burger. Oh, and the caramelized onions made it awesome. There was also a coat of cheese and pickled vegetables cubes. All these lead to a combination of flavors that somehow worked really well together. It totally make sense why this is one of their popular burgers.
The Sweet Potato Fries were good too. Tasted exactly as it should have and I liked the fact that they cut it into regular sizes. Quite a lot of cafes I’ve come across that offer the sweet potato fries option have them cut in large, thick sizes. It tends to get overwhelming towards the end with a ‘muak’ like effect. When it is cut into smaller sizes, it taste more pleasing? I do not have a better way to explain this, lol. I am sorry.
Anyways, we enjoyed the sweet potato fries quite a bit that we decided to give their regular fries a go. If you’d notice in their Menu – it comes in 4 seasonings and we opted for Spicy.
It was yummy, yawww! I dont know if you can see it in the image above but those fries were sprinkled with chili powder. It was not too spicy but it certainly was different, unique. I liked it very much.
They offer 4 options for buffalo wings and 2 of them are crowd favorites – Honey Mustard, Hot & Spicy , depending on the flavor you fancy. We decided on the Hot & Spicy. Upon tasting it, I LOVE it!! It was really good. It wasnt hot and spicy in a way that cause your tongue to burn or you sweating profusely, not at all. Heck, your eye wont even start tearing. For me at least, no such thing and boy, was I glad. When a dish is really spicy to an extend the tears start flowing and the tongue start burning – you can hardly taste anything. Who wants that, right?
The outside was crunchy with plenty of flavor – spice, chilli, you name it. The meat inside was tender and juicy. Delicious, it was. I’d certainly order it again. Most definitely.
Would I head back here?
Ooooo yesss, I would. Food was awesome.
