Rabbit, Deer, Lamb and Ostrich Burgers @ Burger Boy Corner

Burger Boy Corner Truck

I was driving around Kota Damansara at 12:30 am just now looking for a bite to eat. The usual Ramly burger stand that I go to wasn’t open so I just cruised around the Encorp Strand area to find another and bumped into this one. Burger Boy Corner is a slightly more up-scale version of a Ramly burger stand – it offers a variety of different burgers in addition to the usual suspects.

Ostrich Rabbit Deer Lamb

I was particularly intrigued by their sign that advertised Rabbit Burgers, Deer Burgers, Lamb Burgers and Ostrich Burgers!

Rabbit Burger Patties

I’ve had lamb and venison burgers plenty of times before so I opted for the rabbit and ostrich burgers. I was curious as to whether they had their own supplier for the meat so I asked to see what the patties looked like and the guy (presumably Burger Boy himself) kindly showed me the cooler.

Ostrich Rabbit Patties

The ostrich burger seems to be the most popular since it’s already open and 3 patties are missing, but the others are all new, including the rabbit burger. I’ve actually had ostrich burgers in Sibu before – this was just before my mom passed. There’s actually an ostrich farm and I went with my mom to buy an ostrich egg (which the owner reluctantly parted with for RM 50 – this was before they were selling them).

We took it home and I planned to fry it in a HUGE omelet but despite both our efforts with a chopping knife, we couldn’t even crack it! I was sooo careful bringing it home coz I was afraid it’ll smash too. Haha. In the end, we just boiled it and had such a hard time opening it that I ended up using a screwdriver and a hammer.

Ostrich Rabbit Burgers

I digress. Anyway, I got both of the orders as Special, which means it comes with an egg and the choice of either black pepper or mushroom sauce (went for the former). I quite liked the ostrich burger (RM 7.50) – the meat is red coz it’s from the leg, it’s dark meat, just like chicken legs are. I’ve always seen people puzzled by the fact that ostrich meat is red due the fact that it’s a bird.

Interesting fact: The meat from an ostrich is red coz it’s from the legs! That’s the *only* part of an ostrich you eat, there’s no meat in the breast so there’s no white meat from an ostrich.

Ostrich Burger

The rabbit burger (RM 7.50) is on the lean side, so I was glad to see he took it off the grill faster than the ostrich burger patty. It was cooked just nice, right before it went dry and although it’s pretty lean for my tastes, it’s not too bad if you like lean meat. I still prefer the ostrich burger though.

Rabbit Burger

Burger Boy Corner also has jumbo hot dogs for around the same price as the new food truck Amaze K near Encorp Strand Mall. I was surprised to be told that the jumbo sausages are quite expensive so that’s why they need to retail it at those prices. They also sell cold drinks from the fridge and seating is available on one side of the Burger Boy Corner food truck.

Burger Boy Corner

Burger Boy Corner is open till 1 am and usually parked in front of the 7-Eleven beside The Joy of Sharing.

bla bla bla … restaurant review

bla bla bla restaurant

bla bla bla… restaurant is a relatively new
eating establishment that opened up in Kuching. It has a purplish pink
neon sign with a speech bubble around the restaurant’s name. It looks
like a small place but it’s actually 180 meters inside!

bla bla bla bridge

The interesting bit about bla bla bla restaurant is that there is a
water walkway/bridge with “stepping stones” which you have to pass
through in order to enter the restaurant. It kinda screens the patrons
a bit, coz you have to be at least reasonably sober to navigate
through, ya know. ;)

bla bla bla water

The square block bridge is also where the eating establishment
branches into the upstairs dining area or the al fresco seating areas
to the back. There are goldfish swimming around in the flowing water if
you look close enough.

bla bla bla produce

Bla bla bla restaurant has a great ambience with the water features
and other well placed decors like this great platter of fresh produce…

bla bla bla futon

There is a futon mound where you can relax and have a couple of
drinks coz you can get rather thirsty after saying the restaurant’s
name a couple of times. ;)

bla bla bla green walk

There is a second water walkway with lush greenery that leads to the
end of the long 180 meter dining area. The place feels like a lush
tropical paradise with the generous plant life placed around the area.

bla bla bla roof

There are chandeliers and (another) interesting thing about bla bla bla restaurant is the retractable roof on top.

bla bla bla long

The narrow aisle is nicely arranged with tables for groups on one
side and tables for couples of the other side so there’s room to move
in the middle. The interior design is amazing.

bla bla bla margarita

I had a couple of margaritas (RM 18) which came with the signature pandan leaf that this place serves with most drinks.

bla bla bla mussels

This is the spicy mussels (RM 20). It came in a huge platter and it tastes great!

bla bla bla ostrich

This is the ostrich roll (RM 22) which comes with a morsel of battered ostrich meat on a flat roll.

bla bla bla lamb

This is the lamb shank (RM 23) which came with a cutting knife and serving fork. It’s tender and delicious.

bla bla bla prawns

This is the cashew nut prawn (RM 28), a decadent serving of HUGE prawns (it’s gigantic, actually) with mayo. This is easily the best part of the meal.

bla bla bla … restaurant is a great place to have dinner. It opens till late and the ambience and food is great.

…and admit it, you love the name too. ;)
