Woodfire Ampang

October 12, 2020

Johor's famed Woodfire burgers finally have a full-fledged restaurant in KL, with this friendly franchised outpost in Ampang. These big, bulky burgers live up to the wait, stuffed thick and tall - especially enjoyable if you like sloppy, saucy burgers.

Many of the main burgers start from RM17.90, but the top temptation might be the behemoth of the Brisket Burger, with a tender, textured beef patty topped with Woodfire's own smoked brisket chunks and beef bacon slices for a triple-threat of beef, layered with lots of onions and cheese, rounded out with BBQ sauce that's a bit sweeter than we like, though that's a matter of preference. Protein-powered pleasure that merits the RM37.90 price tag; perhaps KL's heartiest burgers, all killer, no filler.

Fried chicken sandwiches are also a treat, packed with crunchy-battered, succulent-fleshed thigh meat for fowl at its juiciest; have it with tomatoes, turkey slices, pickles, lettuce and salted egg sauce (RM17.90; add a bit more for a sunny-side-up).

Woodfire Ampang shares a space with SanJuan coffee, so you can have locally roasted lattes here.

Woodfire KL looks set to make a mark all over KL soon - next up, Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
