A BURGER is basically just two pieces of bread with a meat patty in between. You might find it occasionally topped with lettuce, tomatoes or cheese and sauce according to your own preference.
But Project Burger offers a bit of twist in this combination and as an avid food enthusiast, I told myself that I had to try it at least once.
Scanning through the menu, I decided to try the pork burger layered with cheese, sliced tomatoes, onions and lettuce with an extra addition of smoked bacon and poached egg. Yes, with poached egg. Fascinating right?
The owner of Project Burger, Calvin Kho is very friendly and he recommended I tried the beef burger as well as it is also one of his customers’ favourite.
The first bite of the burger was heavenly. But bear in mind, you have to open your mouth wide enough to taste all the wonderful elements incorporated in the burger. The poached egg was cooked to perfection, not too raw and not too well done. As I took my first bite, I could taste the savory flavor of the pork meat, blended well with the egg and the smoked bacon.
Curious, I asked Calvin how he came up with the idea of incorporating the poached egg.
Before he started his business last year, most of the burgers he had seen in Kuching were more or less the same, with no special element added.
So, the creative risk taker decided that he would mark his burger with something out of the ordinary and that is where he came out with the idea of serving his burger with poached egg. Luckily for him, the idea worked and I have to say I think I found my favourite burger in town.
The burger beef was amazing! When I squeezed the burger lightly, the juice from the thick patty came out. Not only that, the patty was proven to be very flavorful and well cooked.
For health-conscious people, you do not need to worry about calories you might consume at Project Burger as the burgers are prepared with no no oil, margarine or other preservatives.
When preparing the burger, I saw that Calvin did not add oil when cooking the patty and instead of applying large amounts of margarine onto the bun and grilling them like most burger sellers do, he lightly toasted the wheat bun until it was slightly crunchy on the outside but soft inside.
To wrap up my delicious meal, I thought I would have a try of Calvin’s homemade Nutella ice cream for dessert even though I was already quite full from tasting two different burgers.
Creamy and nutty, the ice cream is a must try for all the first timer at Project Burger.
Project Burger is operated only by Calvin Kho and it might take slightly a longer time for you to wait for your order, but believe me, it is definitely worth it.
Project Burger is located in a peaceful housing area that would be fitting for anyone looking for a burger with an extra twist.
Project Burger is open on Monday to Saturday from 6.30 till 11 pm and is off on Sunday. So, if you are looking something new to satisfy your taste buds, come try Calvin Kho’s amazingly scrumptious and healthy creation of food art!
