Fuel Shack @ Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya

With the sudden growth of Burger joints in the Klang Valley, here we have another player that has had some tremendous growth over the last year. I believe they started their very first outlet in Suria KLCC followed by the one in KL Convention Center and now they have successfully established 11 outlets across Malaysia. This particular outlet that we visited is located in E@Curve, Mutiara Damansara.

The Outlet Located In E@Curve, Mutiara Damansara

Located On The Ground Floor Of The Mall

100% Self Service

Food Collection Counter
The place was simple, not as trendy as some of those burger joints, even the local grown ones. They had a small indoor seating area and a small area along the common walkway. They were very much a self service restaurant. From my observation, there was one guy manning the counter and another one working in the kitchen. The kitchen staff was obviously a foreigner. One is expected to go through the menu, place your orders, pay for them and later self collect from the collection counter.

Our Bill For The Day
They had a very interesting menu, one that allows you to mix and match your orders but be careful when the final bill is tabulated. Always check the items. There were three of us tonight and so we ordered one Burger, one Hot Dog, one sides and three drinks but we were charged for four drinks which I only realised when I reached home. Sadly, there is nothing that I can do about it now.  Well, if I was the one paying, I would have realised it immediately upon collection of the receipt but since it was my brother's treat, I only got hold of the receipt once we reached home. Anyway, just sharing my experience. I have no qualms with the prices as long as the food is good. They claim to serve the meatiest burgers in town and so I am hoping for some good stuff to arrive soon. One good thing here is that nothing is pre made like those fast food outlets. All burgers are made to order and that ensures that the food is fresh and hot. 

Coke @ RM 3.20

Sprite @ RM 3.20
The drinks were ready to be collected almost instantly. Nothing much to shout about, standard prices for such restaurants and nothing shocking. Variety was sufficient. I believe that they are famous for their milkshakes too but none of us tried them tonight.

Cheese Fries @ RM 8.50

Cheese Fries @ RM 8.50
In a matter of 15 minutes, the dishes that we ordered were ready for collection. The above is their Cheese Fries and this was priced at RM 8.50 . Regular shoe string cuts were topped with sweet chili sauce, barbecue sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese. The portion was okay but their presentation was extremely messy. The cuts were too thin and when they had topped the sauces, it was all soaked tasted horrid. Even the shredded mozzarella cheese didn't completely dissolve. To be honest, this was the worst Cheese Fries that I have come across. Some of the Malay restaurants do this better. As for me, I would only rate this at 4/10 .

Big Dawg @ RM 12.90

Nothing Much There
My brother went for their Big Dawg and it was another huge let down. Priced at RM 12.90 , this again was topped with Bolognese Sauce and shredded Mozzarella. The presentation in the menu and actual were completely different. Whoever prepared this was surely not skilled as he seemed to have just dumped everything on the frankfurter with very little care. And taste wise, the cheapest Hot Dog from A&W is way better than this one. No, not one that I would recommend!!! I would rate this at 4/10 only.

The Lamb Supreme @ RM 17.00

This The Meatiest Burger in Town?

The Ground Lamb Didn't Taste Great Too
Their Lamb Burger which is priced at RM 17.00 is possibly the worst Lamb Burger that I have tasted. Even the push cart guys do this better. They claim to be the meatiest burger in town and the photograph speaks for itself. Have they not tried any other gourmet burger joints? So many of them out there who make some excellent burgers and this was not even 40% there. Even the meat didn't taste that good. Nope, not a recommended burger and I would only rate this at 3/10 .

Other Outlets

Something must be terribly wrong at this outlet or their food is truly bad. After doing some research, I have come to know that it is a outlet based issue and they face a similar issue at some other outlets as well. Either way, I would expect to have so good food for the price paid as these are not cheap and today was surely a huge disappointment. Based on today's dining experience, I would never return again.
