Looking for an alternative to birthday cakes?
Supersized burgers could be the perfect surprise for that special someone or even to be served at birthday parties.
StarMetro, in its search for good comfort food, stumbled upon Yazid Supersized Burger in Section 7, Shah Alam.
Located in a small food court, known as Medan Selera Anjung, the burger stall is popular for its homemade patties and buns.
There are plenty of choices for customers, in terms of size, with a single serving of 250g to even the humongous 3kg patty.
The prices for these delectable bites range from RM10 to RM120.
The burgers are kept simple, staying true to the Malaysian-styled burger with cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, onions and lettuce.
To jazz up the flavours, mayonnaise, chilli sauce, mustard, Thousand Island dressing and barbecue sauce are slapped onto the patty before being encased in a bun.
For those who prefer to stray away from the norm, the stall also offers special sauces such as black pepper, mushroom, cheeze and jalapeno, at RM1 for each additional ingredient chosen.
The star at Yazid’s is of course, the patty.
Stall manager Abdul Wahab Abdul Kadir said the patties were made every morning.
The kitchen opens at 11am and it takes four hours to get the prep work done in time for opening hours.
To cater to their clientele, there are three choices of patties – chicken, beef and lamb – to choose from.
“The ingredients for the patty have to be mixed well to achieve a good balance of meat and fat,” said Abdul Wahab, 30, who is the younger brother of stall owner Abdul Yazid.
So, what makes these patties so good that people keep coming back for more?
The brothers throw in eggs, breadcrumbs, black pepper, chilli powder, oregano, thyme, bay leaves and salt to pep up the taste of the patties before they are shaped and thrown onto the hot griddle.
The juicy and tender patties with a hint of smokiness are about two inches thick.
I enjoyed the meaty flavour of the patty as it was not overwhelmingly fatty. They even get creative with their freshly baked buns, with choices of wholemeal, oregano, honey oat and garlic.
However, Abdul Wahab said the varieties were alternated to serve up only two types, every day.
Abdul Wahab said they made at least 30kg of buns in a day.
Both the patties and buns are made at the stall so customers are guaranteed of freshness.
