Raja Bakor 23, Titiwangsa

March 14, 2020

Sandwiched with a nearly 140-gram Kumamoto wagyu steak, Raja Bakor 23's flagship burger clocks in at some RM120, certainly making it the costliest burger in Titiwangsa. The emphatically marbled Japanese-bred beef from the island of Kyushu offers a firm bite and a luscious, full-flavoured chew - it would fare best without being in a burger, but the friendly crew here cooks it capably. These luxe burgers start at RM88 for 100 grams of beef, stuffed in Raja Bakor's custom-baked buns with torched cheese and sriracha sauce. An interesting choice if you want to sink your teeth into pure beef, not processed patties.

If your budget is tighter but you still crave a bovine dose of decadence, try the RM48 Australian wagyu burger, a very decent compromise that still affords a 125-gram patty that's thick and tender enough to triumphantly sink your teeth into. Bonus points for the preparation of the beef, scoring well for prime-level juiciness.

Finally, for an everyday burger, Raja Bakor's spicy burger with green chilli sauce, wasabi mayo and provolone cheese (RM15) is worthwhile if you're in the neighbourhood and considering a suppertime burger, crafted with a little more love and care than the conventional KL burger stand.
