SnG (Steam N Grill) Burger, Setiawalk Food Review

When the name SnG Burger first fall upon my ears, I was thinking to myself, "Not another burger outlet with it's already saturated market in Malaysia." But it turns out to be pretty alright since it has some quite unique and interesting flavors that's truly Malaysian.

The outlet was located at a very quiet part of Setiawalk where the block was probably 90 percent empty, facing the LDP highway and is at the area where few people would pass by.
On top of being at a very quiet block, they were also on the first floor, on top of Affin Bank, which seems to make it even more secluded.

A quick look around and I found out that it may not be a bad place to hangout after all.
Some nice cozy and comfortable booths. An al fresco setting.
A small area that's catered for private functions:
And a lighting tree-like structure at near a corner of the restaurant.
Guess that's part of a Christmas theme decoration.

A quick glance through their menu board shows that they make some interesting fruit drinks mixture but I didn't try it. Perhaps next time.
Also on their menu board, they have 4 category of burgers which are Chicken, Beef, Fish and Vegan where the vegan section merely consists of one burger at the moment.

So I decided to try 3 out of their current 4 specialty Malaysian flavor burger which the 4 are Satay Chicken, Beef Serunding, Sambal Beef and Otak-Otak.

Once order is placed, a device will be given to you and will buzz once your order is ready just like how Snowflake the first to implement in Malaysia does.
I first dug into the Sambal Beef Burger:
A nice even dose of Sambal with some onion and lettuce also cheese. But I somehow find the cheese fusing with the sambal a little bit on the odd side. Nevertheless, the sambal is flavorful enough and overall the burger works.

Next is the Serunding Beef Burger:
A nice mouthful of beefy strands and full of it's good flavor in there. This in my opinion is the best burger that I've tasted in this outlet. Complementing the beef would be some lettuce, tomatoes and onions.

At SnG burgers, they only steam and grill their burgers and do not deep fry/fry their patties.

The last Malaysian flavored burger that I tried was the Satay Chicken Burger:
The nice smoky hickory taste of the sauce on the soft, moist, grilled chicken just worked out well in the overall taste of the burger.

By the way, notice that the bun on it is slightly green in color. That's because this is the Spinach bun that I opted for to go with this burger.

There are 4 types of buns to choose from for your burger. Aside from Spinach, there's Charcoal:
and Original:
Among the four, I like the Spinach the best. You can truly taste the soften yet strong enough Spinach taste in the bun that adds flavor to a burger like how a condiment does. The buns are naturally yeast 100% with no preservatives nor coloring.

There's one more Malaysian flavor burger that I didn't try and that is the Otak-Otak Fish Burger. That's because I'm not really a fan of Otak-Otak and that is why I opted out of it. I was told that the Otak-Otak are brought in from the one in Muar, specially catered for them.

Since I opted out of this one, I went with the Hawaiian Chicken Burger instead.
Unfortunately, this one seemed to taste kinda weird for me. The pineapple with the chicken grilled patty and the sauce somehow just didn't work for me. But I'm told that this is what most people order out of the Malaysian flavors. Maybe others like it and I don't. Anyway, I would say it's best to stick to the Malaysian flavor burgers.

The fries that comes if ordered in a set has 2 special sauces for dip when requested and that is the Cheese and Wasabi:
The wasabi taste is too mild for me to call it wasabi. I like the cheese dip though. Nice strong cheesy flavor that goes well with the fries.

The outlet is located on the first floor atop Affin Bank and behind the Brussels Beer Cafe block facing the LDP.

Well, to me the Sambal burger is not spicy but has a little spice to it.

Hm..... the one that they claim works for many didnt work for you? Location very-the-fail right?

They should have Kangkung burger haha

Ya. Somehow, I find the Hawaiian Chicken Burger tasted a bit odd for me when the ingredients combined. When I saw it had pineapples in there, I was immediately imagining a little sweet, citrusy taste blending in with the bread and some chicken taste to it but somehow that wasn't the case.

One of the owners own the place and they knew it was a very difficult position to set up shop but decided to persevere through it.

In fact, they ARE experimenting in coming out with a burger that contains Kangkung.
