Cristang.

I am going talk about the yummy pork burger I mentioned in my previous post! :D


I am sure it's no secret that the boyfriend and I LOVE food, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that we are always looking at new places to tantalize our tastebuds. The thing is, the boyfriend usually has an upperhand, 'cause his sense of direction is so much better than mine. T__T Any place which is situated in KL, is almost always a no-go for me, 'cause I am like a blind man without a cane in KL wtf.

So sometime ago, I came about Cristang's FB page (led to it by loads of recommendation links), and thought: Aha, finally somewhere in PJ! Confirmed it'll be easy-peasy for a PJ kid like me to find my way around town.

According the the FB page, Cristang is renowned for its pork burgers. The boyfriend and I have always been big fans of piggies wtf, so it only was natural for me to be excited to bring him there.

Alas, in the end the boyfriend was the one who brought me there. T_T




Running whizzing kids.


So cute!
Everytime they ran past us, they will squeal "Hello!" :D




My GPS wtf.




The place is located at 8 Avenue, PJ (where the fuck is that??), which is quite quiet, especially on a public holiday.




Bacon and egg soup! I have never heard of anything like that before!




The egg is a perfect, tear-drop poached egg; and you are supposed to break the egg yolk into soup before devouring it. It was all very refreshing for us (especially for me who generally likes to break things wtf), and very deliciously so!




My trademark burger-- pork burger with minced meat cooked with petai.


Petai?? I heard you ask in horror.
I was very skeptical when I first read the menu too!! I usually try to avoid petai because of bad experiences when I was younger-- my dad bombs the toilet after big hearty petai meals and laugh when the toilet smells of petai WTF.


But I assure you, it was definitely one of the top 3 burgers I have ever had! Not to mention it's not that easy to find pork burgers in KL. It was juicy, flavorful, and the spicy, tangy fried minced meat added an interesting dimension to the burger. Thumbs up!




The minced meat + bacon + juicy pork patty = sinfully good meal





The boyfriend's burger has cajun prawns on top!

I had fun dancing around the boyfriend ala MC Hammer HAHAHA.



I am a happy, happy girl! I finally got a pair of black leather Converse sneakers yesterday! :D The boyfriend promised to get me a pair of (work) shoes since my shoes suffered a horrible death wtf, but I couldn't find anything that I like! Work shoes are so expensive, and are ALL uncomfortable. Oh well, fate led me to my happy Converse shoes, and in the end, the boyfriend got me the Converse instead! I got him a pair as well, so the next time I am back in KL, we are going to be a sappy matching outfit shoes couple. :P

hi hui wen :) i'll second that statement on how this is one of the best pork burgers ive had for quite a while now! my aunt brought me and my sis there last friday and lets just say that the "urban legend" burger was so superb that when we realized we ordered one of the pork dish that turned out to be the petai filling in the burger, we happily announced that it was probably one of the best mistakes we've ever made. hahahahahha..

ps: i cant believe im reading this post after my 5am morning jog. diet fail lar today. :")

anonymous: It's kind pricey, say about RM28 for the burger I had? The soup was RM12 I think. But it's worth it for an occasional treat! :)
