Buns & Meat @ Lakefields, Sungei Besi

8:00:00 AM

It has been some time since my last burger-trip as the trend ended over a year ago. Previously, I had burgers almost every week without fail. Hopping from one burger joint to another. However, that stopped when the trend started slowing down and of course, the lack of new burger joints. Years later, I've encountered this - Buns & Meat. It's not merely a burger joint as they do serve other stuff as well. Gourmet hotdog is one of the added twist in Buns & Meat. Hence the name.

Char Siew Burger - RM16.90

This was the first that was served, and the best I felt so far. Combining juicy tender pork patty with cheese topped with deliciously sweet and juicy char siew and finished with fresh onion slices and a brioche-like bun. Though it was pretty simple, the flavours and texture were phenomenal. Natural juices and the char siew sauce compliments each other perfectly.

Runny Mess - RM20.90

 Truthfully, it really was a mess. Delicious Hollandaise sauce drench over 160grams of freshly made pork patty and cheese that will satisfy even the heaviest eater on the table. Flavours were balanced and slight above the mild level which is lovely for those who opt for something less salty and savoury as compared to the Char Siew Burger. 

Hot Dog with Jalapeno Slaw - RM16.90

As mentioned before, aside from the Asian infused burgers, there are a variety of hot dogs with premium toppings available as well. This for example, is a Jalapeno Slaw. Freshly made coleslaw with diced Jalapeno infused with a tinge of BBQ sauce on a German sausage in a steam bun. Delicious combination with a burst of flavours and texture! Closest to what you'll find in America. 

Hot Dog with Nacho Cheese Sauce - RM14.90

Similarly, this serving of hotdog is paired with semi-crushed nachos on a bed of mild cheese sauce and finished with fresh spring onions. Though the flavours were a little mild, the nachos added a new dimension to its texture, making it soft yet crunchy simultaneously.

Hot Dog with Sauteed Mushrooms & Black Pepper Sauce - RM15.90

This was one of my favourites as well. A lighter comparison to the Jalapeno and Nacho cheese. Several types of mushroom sauteed to perfection and topped with delicious black pepper sauce. I would say its a vegetarian delight?

Signature BBQ Pork Ribs - RM44.90

Sweet and savoury BBQ sauce on perfectly cooked pork ribs that were soft and tender to the bone. Comes off with a push of a fork easily, but best eaten with hands. Get yourself sucking on those bones. 

Spicy Korean Pork Ribs - RM42.90

To be honest, I actually prefer this more than the Signature BBQ version due to its rarity. I can find pork ribs with BBQ sauce almost anywhere, the only difference would perhaps be the smokiness, tenderness and size of the ribs. The Spicy Korean Pork Ribs on the other hand, had flavours not to be found anywhere. Hence, it has an identity on its own and most importantly, it tasted great!

Aglio Olio with Pork Bacon 

 I believe I've mentioned a few times on this blog that I hated Aglio Olio pastas, because its dry and dense. This on the other hand, was one of the few exceptions I made. The penne was cooked el dente, though I would prefer if the penne had the line-texture. The bacon and mushroom was sauteed and seasoned to perfection. Combining them all gave a burst of flavour, texture and most importantly, moisture. The garlic bread too, was crisp and fluffy - absolutely delicious.

Pulled Pork Fries & Parmesan Truffle Oil Fries - RM11.90

I love pulled pork, especially on fries. In fact, I love fries with various toppings! Nacho, Cheese, Chili Cheese, Pulled Pork/Beef, Truffle oil and well, whatever else anyone can think of. Loved the flavours of the pulled pork, which had similar taste to the Signature BBQ Ribs which goes incredibly well with the fries. 

The Parmesan Truffle Oil Fries on the other hand, lacks the intense aroma that I once had in Singapore. But nevertheless, it is still pretty good.

Bailey's Cheese Cake - RM13.90

Last but not least, our desserts. A layer of smooth Bailey's with Chocolate on creamy but light cheese. The Bailey's had a sweet start and a bitter-smooth ending, which somehow goes incredibly well with the cheese and biscuit base. Loved this cake.

Salted Peanut Butter Cake - RM13.90

Unfortunately, I loved the salted peanut butter layer more than the cake itself. Flavours were balanced as the saltiness was subtle and the peanut butter wasn't overpowering. Loved the flavour as I could just dig in on the cream all day.

Overall, most of what I had in Buns & Meat was great. Great flavour, unique textures and of course, beautiful presentation. Service was a little slower than most restaurants but the results were definitely worth the wait. So, if you're craving some good ol' burgers, ribs or hot dogs, do head on down to Buns & Meat at Lakefields, Sungei Besi.
