T&S Fusion Burger @ Jalan Daud

When you hear about the burger sold by chinese in muar, would you straight away thought of the one along Bentayan street (outside Zense)? No, no... Not only there.
The one we just went today was a Chinese stall opposite Witchery Ider. I knew about this stall from Facebook, but I only realized that it only sells pork burger once I reached there. I personally think that the greatest selling point of this stall is their homemade bun.

韩式全麦面包 Korean style wholewheat bun
They have started their business for 1 month, and if not mistaken, they have tried to bake 3 different kind of bun with their innovation. These 3 types of bun are original, wholewheat and Korean style wholewheat bun (we tried this!) Haha, the Korean style wholewheat bun sounds cool, isn't? The Korean style chilli powder has added into the bun and this was what made it tasted differently from the rest. The chilli powder was slightly spicy and it gave you a totally different taste of burger.

 沙爹酱猪肉汉堡 Satay Flavored Pork Burger
 Black Pepper Flavored Pork Burger 黑胡椒猪肉汉堡
We ordered the only two items on the menu: Satay and black pepper-flavored pork burger.
The burger wasn't warm when we got the burger on our hands. It wasn't even heated to be precise. Well, I wasn't sure whether it was because we hold the burger too long for photography purpose or was it just because it was best consumed while it was not hot/warm? We thought the burger will taste better if the bun is heated up. The texture of the homemade bun is much firm than the typical commercial bun, so you can definitely feel the sincerity of the Chef when you have a bite of it.

我心想,如果这汉堡的mayonnaise 沙拉(好像是包菜和红萝卜)能以大葱,mustard和一些生菜取代,那味道应该会更让人垂涎。不好意思,最近有一点crave for mustard.
The pork burger has a thick patty, and it can for sure fix your cravings. All sauces (black pepper & satay) are home made, and honestly we don't have much comment on them. All of us prefer the black pepper pork burger though.

I thought the burger would taste even better if the mayonnaise salad is replaced with the onion,mustard and lettuce. Yumm..I'm craving for mustard recently :P
Besides, this stall also has kept with good hygiene. Like how? The glove was on while they were preparing the burger! This is pretty different from how some burger stalls served their burgers with just bare hands. Keep in mind the hands who are preparing your burger might have just touched money before it :X
Overall, the burger is average. But if you are bored of chicken, beef or even fish burger, then you can try out this pork burger!!

Price: RM4.90

Handmade Pau @ Jalan Sakeh

晚上十点,我来到了家包店。家包店没有特大的招牌,它只有一个简简单单写着“手工包”的牌匾投身在Jalan Sakeh 的路上 (Espresso Bar 隔壁)
We came to this store around 10pm. Although it did not have any big signboard to support its store, it still has a simple homemade signboard with the typical Chinese characters “Shou Gong Bao”. This store is located at Jalan Sakeh and its just somehow right beside the Espresso Bar. 
This was my first visit to this store. I believe most of its customers would not actually go down, grab a seat, and eat over there. People tend to just stop their cars right in front of the stall and ordered the bun they wanted. When Ms. Photographer and I came to this store, we realized that there weren’t many options for us to choose. The boss even told us that, it would be bad for him if there are still many left overs.
其实我想买的是流沙包,但已卖完了。我只买了叉烧包,两种叉烧包,各一。一种是古早味叉烧包而另一种则是蜜汁口味。老板跟我们解释说了这两种包子的分别。港式口味的叉烧包表皮较软,而内陷也有着浓浓的蜜糖香味。老板说由于蜜汁叉烧包的成本较高,所以相对的它的内陷也会比传统叉烧包来得少。老板还说了这一款的叉烧包会比较适合小孩子食用。而传统叉烧包呢,它的内陷真的是粘粘稠稠的。你吃得到三层肉的油,也吃得到叉烧的甜。此外,古早味叉烧包是经过传统道地的揉搓而成,老板说这种叉烧包基本上在经过蒸馏之前和之后的差异并不大; 蜜汁叉烧包则需要把它捏成小小一团就可以了。
What I initially wanted to buy is the york custard bun (juicy juicy type), but it was sold out. I just bought two types of char siew bao (mixed pork bun): traditional and honey style. The boss explained to us that the HK style bun has a softer skin and the meat was marinated with honey. Since the cost of honey char siew bun is much higher if compared to the traditional one, the amount of meat is definitely lesser. This honey char siew bun is highly recommended to small kid since it is sweet and small. The traditional bun has a more sticky and juicy meat. You are able to have a try of fatness and sweetness of char siew. Besides, it is less sophisticated to process the honey char siew bun as it will just literally “expand” after steaming.

I prefer the traditional bun more because it has more meat for me to eat. :P Besides, it also reminds me of the sweet and yummy taste of the char siew bao I used to eat when I was a small kid. This bun could actually last for 2 days if you keep it well in the fridge. You could just buy it, put it in the fridge and steam it whenever you feel like eating.
