Neighbourhood burger joint Morbites has opened a flagship store in Dataran Sunway, Petaling Jaya, and introduced a nasi lemak dish to complement its existing line-up of juicy burgers and decadent milkshakes.
The brand previously known as Sixty Bites is co-founded by John Justin Tey and Amer Ezzadeen.
The Nasi Lemak Ayam Serai Morbites is served with a special twist — Serai (lemongrass) Chicken.
The dish has fragrant blue pea flower-coloured coconut rice, a special sambal, anchovies and peanuts with slices of Japanese cucumber.
“We understand that not everyone is a fan of burgers,” said Tey.
“With a rice dish on our menu, friends and families will still be able to enjoy a meal together despite their differences in taste.
“The nasi lemak is a tribute to not only Malaysia as it is a national dish, but also to our Asian, rice-loving roots.”
Morbites’ flagship store is located near the Surian MRT Station.
It opened in early May for takeaways and resumed dine-in effective Oct 1.
The store is inspired by American diners and was conceptualised with a large kitchen to cater to more customers.
“We chose Dataran Sunway as it is near the MRT line and is easily accessible for those commuting by public transport,” said Tey.
Morbites also operates a food truck in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.
Both premises operate from noon to 10pm daily, with last order at 9.30pm.
Morbites’ other signature dishes include Taj Lamb Burger with a lamb patty placed between two pieces of crispy roti canai, and ChezBurger, a gourmet American-style burger consisting of a thick rib-eye patty topped with tomato, melted cheese, caramelised onion jam and tangy mustard pickle mayo.
A special menu for children called the Kids Slider is also available as a set of two mini-sized versions of ChezBurger and Hail Caesars burgers.
Burgers are priced between RM8 and RM35.
Morbites is available on major food delivery platforms and via morbites.oddle.me.
