Wayback Burger has landed in Malaysia and its first outlet is located at the very convenient mall in Melawati. Apart from the many fnbs that I’ve reviewed for the recent foodieville, there is no way I would let this slide and this one is the exciting one that I was really looking forward to during the restaurant hopping session. Originated from none other than where burger consumption is comforting, this America fast casual restaurant chain based in Cheshire, Connecticut serves burgers and hotdogs, as well as milkshakes.
With an open kitchen parading and showcasing the flow of your burger preparation right from where the meats are grinded and patties are grilled and assembled into stacks and layers of meats and cheese and buns and lettuces. Served with their fresh potato chips, every bite of the burger will be elevated with the texture of those crispy chips.
Meat is very fresh and delicious when I had it, and the buns are what’s different from many burger chains in town. In fact, they are probably the few that does their burger buns in such. Burger bun is grilled with butter and inverted so be ready to have all fingers greasy when eating the Cheeeesy Burger (RM 22.99). This is the signature and with double patties and 4 slices of cheddar cheese, you either love the flavours or you hate it.
Their House Made Chips (RM 12.99) are fantastic because of the thickness of each piece of chips. The crispy and natural flavour of real potato is fabulous. I get to try the Alaska Pollock Fish fillet that’s supposed to go in between buns alongside with tartar sauce and lettuce in their WB Fish (RM 12.99), but I didn’t quite enjoy it. The Chicken Wings (RM8.90 for 4pcs or RM 11.90 for 6pcs) is some extra selection for add on at communal dining. There is smoke bbq sauce, hot sauce, Wayback gold sauce and the chili padi sauce to choose from. I tried the chili padi sauce and I can personally tell you this- it wasn’t spicy at all when in the mouth but the throat burns after.
I would really love to return to properly eat an entire meal instead of sampling the dishes and if anyone is interested with the rest of the restaurant hopping during foodieville, read all about it HERE.
