It was a relaxing afternoon with juicy bites during my visit to the Pinang Restaurant and Bar  in Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa. This cool  al fresco dinning place near the Garden Wing pool recently reveals its signature gourmet burgers and I had the chance to sample some them.

Price starts from RM32 with lamb, chicken and beef on the menu. Each burger with toasted seeded bun, flavorsome sauce, delicious accompaniments and fries delivered a different taste-bud sensation.

For those who prefer lamb, do go for the lamb and cumin burger (RM38). The burger is served with onion marmalade, arugula and an abundance of potato curls on the side. The juicy tender meat has great flavor and a balance hint of cumin. The onion marmalade is lovely but on the sweeter side.
