Fuddruckers’ ‘construct your own burger’ option and large portions, with wholesome ingredients, make for a fun meal out for the whole family.
Originating from the United States in the 1980s, founder Philip Romano wanted to provide a healthy alternative to the regular fast food burger experience.
Fuddruckers’ achieves this through preparing almost all ingredients in-house fresh each day.
The restaurant imports premium quality Angus beef from Australia and New Zealand, and prepare their patties at their in-store butchery with no added preservatives or MSG, explained Mohamed Kamal Amir, the man responsible for bringing the Fuddruckers franchise to Asia.
“Angus beef cattle are fed the highest quality grain and wheat. We make our patties in our own butcher, so you know exactly what goes into the meat.
“We also bake our burger buns here, one batch in the morning for lunch and the second in the afternoon for dinner, so you know it is always fresh,” said Kamal.
Customers can construct their own burgers by choosing a 150gm, 235gm or 300gm patty, then adding their own toppings and sides from the free-flow salad bar.
With around 10,400 possible variations, every family member will be satisfied.
“Customisation is fun, you can make the burger into what you want, whether it is spicy, sour, cheesy — whatever makes the customer happy.”
There is also a range of pre-made burgers. Crowd favourites include the Cowboy and The Works but the sautéed mushrooms on the Swiss Melt (top pic) spell perfection.
There is no limit to the amount of salad one can consume with all salads and topping prepared fresh daily.
The Russian salad and the zesty salsa were my favourites.
Its massive steaks (622gm) have recently been a crowd favourite, and there are a range of lunch specials priced at RM19.90 for those seeking a lighter option.
Though it is new to Malaysia, having opened in Bukit Bintang in 2013, locals are fast discovering the Fuddruckers’ difference.
All hamburgers are priced between RM34.90 and RM56.90, depending on size and the huge portions are good for sharing.
The appetiser platter will feed three people. I chose the spicy chicken drumstick, vegetarian quesadilla and seasoned wedges with cheese and meaty sauce which was delicious.
Top it off with an all-American milkshake complete with whipped cream or your pick from the bar.
If you have room for dessert, share a Fudge Volcano. The play of textures and temperatures between the cool ice cream, chocolate chunks and warm oozing chocolate inside will satisfy any sweet tooth.
