ROADSIDE burger stalls are go-to places for those craving something meaty at night.

Burger fans have been seen flocking to Seventythirty.kl, queueing up for one of the stall’s creations.

Located at SS17 in Subang Jaya, the stall has more than 10 types of burgers ranging from beef and chicken to fish.

Stall owners, Mohd Najib Halime and Sasha Adnan, bring out the best in their “smashed” burgers.

Here, the patties are pressed and flipped, then seasoned before slices of cheese are placed on top of each patty.

The idea behind a smashed burger is to flatten the patty to increase its surface area so it gets the most of the browning process and develops a nice caramelised crust.

Mohd Najib and Sasha started the stall because of their passion for food.

“We both enjoy food, especially burgers, ” said Sasha.

“When I was a stewardess, I often went to the US and I loved the taste of American burgers.

“They are not the usual chilli sauce-based burger, ” Sasha said, adding that it was the reason why they started making smashed burgers.

The patties are home-made too.

“We start our day early in the morning as the patties are made fresh every day.

“The patties are made from New Zealand and Australian beef, ” she said.

According to Sasha, they sell over 200 to 250 burgers a day.

The bestsellers from the beef options, she said, were Say Cheese! and The Prettiest Star.

The former comprised a house blend Australian beef patty, melted mozzarella and orange cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles and home-made burger sauce.

The latter, Sasha’s favourite, has a house blend Australian beef patty, American cheese, sunny-side up egg, beef bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and home-made barbeque sauce.

Say Cheese! was exceptional from this writer’s first bite into the burger.

The patty was rich and juicy while the sauce tangy and pungent.

The sauce was made from mustard and pickles.

For The Prettiest Star, the combination of luscious beef and burst of egg yolk was beautiful.

“Some of my customers love the taste of both burgers so what they do is combine them.

“They also add cheese on top, making it a wholesome burger, ” she added.

Other than beef burgers, the stall has chicken burgers such as The Bok Bok, Korean Fried Chicken and Aloha.

On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Hey Fish!, which has Cajun-spiced pan-grilled salmon fillet topped with greens, tomatoes, pickles and home-made honey mustard sauce, is also available.

The price of the burgers range from RM10 to RM27.

Seventythirty.kl is located in SS17, Subang Jaya, on the roadside facing Petron station.

It opens from 7.30pm to 11.30pm, except for Mondays and Tuesdays.
