Ninja Joe @ Tropicana City Mall, Petaling Jaya

It is very rare to find Pork Burgers being sold and what more in a fast food concept. Ninja Joe has got to be the very first one in Malaysia that has introduced this concept. Their entire range of burgers are pork based with an exception to a recently introduced Chicken burger. Having heard of a Pork Burger, it definitely had created an excitement within me to visit one of their outlets. I understand that they have four outlets in the Klang Valley and the most convenient one for me is their outlet in Tropicana City Mall, Petaling Jaya. Their other outlets are in Mid Valley Megamall, One Utama and Setia City Mall.

The Main Offerings

New Introductions
Their outlet in Tropicana City Mall is located on the Lower Ground Floor and it is quite easy to find. It is a relatively small space but sufficient for them. As we walked in to the outlet today, we realised that most of their burgers are named after Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris and their movies. The general theme at this restaurant is the Ninja and most of their side dishes take up similar names associated to the Ninja tradition and weapons. It is also observed that recently they have branched out of burgers and also introduced some rice and pork dishes into their menu.

The Menu
The menu comes in options of individual burgers as well as set menu's that offer better value. It is also very clearly placed as you could very much decide your meals even when you are in the line waiting to place your orders.

The Counter

Small Seating Area
Ordering here is quite simple. Just get in line, identify your meal, be it individual or combo sets and then place your orders and pay. They would then pass you a number and your food would be sent to you shortly. I believe all their orders are made freshly and hence they do not have pre-prepared food. This could be because they do not have the scale of customers as Mc Donalds or KFC to ensure quick sale of the items on display which is good anyway as we get our food fresh.

Lemonade
Both of us went for the combo meals. We ordered on Chuck and one Brucely sets. With that comes a set of French Fries and a choice of drink. We choose the above Lemonade. The Lemonade was not bad actually though not as fizzy as it should be. I would rate this drink at 7/10 .

A Closer Look At Both Our Sets
The food was then delivered in a black basket like the above. Shall write more on the food below.

French Fries
I actually liked the fries. It was pretty fresh and crispy and lightly salted. Definitely much better than KFC. I would rate their Fries at 8.5/10 .

Closer Look At The Burger
The Brucely Burger comes with two white Buns, Pork Chop Patty, Pork Bacon, Cheese, Tomato and Lettuce. The burger was very juicy and there was a clear distinction in the palate of the taste of the Pork Chop Patty and the Pork Bacon. I really liked this burger as I find it to be very good. I would rate this at 9.3/10 .

Chuck Combo Set @ RM 16.90

The Chuck Burger comes with two white Buns, Minced Pork Patty, Pork Bacon, Cheese, Eggs, Onion, Tomato, Lettuce and crispy Onion Rings. In my opinion, this was a little too much to stuff into the burger and the final taste was just a mess of everything. The Pork Patty and Bacon taste disappeared amidst the eggs and Onion Rings. Between the two, I would prefer the previous. I would rate this at 8/10 .

Overall, this is surely an interesting place to dine and if you love Pork Burgers, you must try Ninja Joe at least once. They are conveniently located in prominent malls in the Klang Valley and are open daily from ten to ten. Definitely worth a try at least once and there is a high chance that you may get addicted to it.
