Taman Connaught Night Market Homemade Pork Burger
Night markets or ‘pasar malam’ in Malay are very popular in Malaysia and Asia. You can find night market in selected days in towns and cities around Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, China and more. It has been years since we visited the famous Taman Connaught night market in Cheras. The Cheras Taman Connaught night market is one of the largest night markets in Malaysia. It is popular with the number of stalls available as well as the street food stalls. Taman Connaught night market is located along Jalan Cerdas, Taman Connaught, Kuala Lumpur and opens on Wednesdays evening only from 6pm until late.
The Taman Connaught night market is different than it used to be. There are new food stalls selling more unique and hipster food. We were surprised by the amount of new food stalls that sells stuffs like ‘Cola Fried Chicken’, Salted Egg fried food, homemade pork burger, Korean BBQ Lamb, Korean food and many other unique hipster food.
We spotted this Homemade Pork Burger stall with long queue. Thus, we decided to buy a few pork burgers and see how good it is.
They make their own pork patties and it is cooked for more than 10 minutes. When you have such a thick patty, it is ideal to cook for that long. This is pork patty so it needs to be 100% cooked.
Basically, they slowly cooked the patty first before moving it to another grill to cook it with butter and oil. You can add cheese or just pure pork burger.
Then the pork patty is sandwiched in between the bun, vegetables, mayonnaise and chili sauce. The homemade pork burger is sold at RM 10 each. We don’t feel RM 10 is expensive since the patty is so thick.
How does it taste?
To be honest, the pork burger tasted above average. The texture of the patty is soft but the taste is quite decent in our opinion. We would love if it comes with more seasoning.
In our opinion, if they toasted the buns with butter and added some bacon and egg, it will be perfect.
Well, everyone’s taste bud is different so you might like it more than we do.
Some feedback would be nice if you ate this homemade pork burger before.
