Malaysian Food Blog, Travel, Diving & More

I am one of those people who loves variety when it comes to food. In a typical week, I probably had Malay food, a variety of hawker food, maybe even Japanese, Taiwanese, Italian cuisine. It is very rare that I have the same dish more than once in the same week.

But once in a while, a particularly dish come along that is so awesome I just had to have it twice in a row. The latest of such phenomenon come in the form of a very unique pork burger from Cristang Restaurant.

The first time I had it was on Wednesday, I went there again for the same dish on the very next night for dinner, and there is no doubt I would go to Cristang again many times more.

Cristang Restaurant is located at 8 Avenue in PJ State, a stone throw away across the big Police Station that handles all sorts of traffic accidents in PJ. 8 Avenue itself is a relatively new shop lots that has paid parking much like the concept of Plaza Damas.

The good: there’s always parking spaces

The bad: you have to pay around RM 2 for the spot

At Cristang, their specialty is pork, and oh, they do serve beer, including the 3 types of Weihenstephaner.

The menu is actually rather extensive, you can find pasta, fried rice with bacon & Chinese sausage, pork bacon soup, pork noodle soup, Portugese laksa, and even Bak Kut Teh noodle.

Then there are the 6 different types of pork burger code name P1 to P6.

Every type of burger comes with their specialty pork patty made fresh and grilled when order. The differences are:

  • P1: pork patty (RM 16.80)
  • P2: P1 + back bacon (RM 19.80)
  • P3: P2 + minced pork chili con carne (RM 23.80)
  • P4: P3 + petai stuffed in patty (RM 25.90)
  • P5: P4 + grilled cajun prawns (RM 28.80)
  • P6: P5 + grilled fresh cut pineapples (RM 30.80)

Missing from the menu is P7, by special request, is basically a P4 plus melted cheese. This was the burger I ate twice in 2 days.

To say the burger is unique is probably an understatement, it is a creation of art, something so ridiculously out of this world I am suspecting the chef probably has a very weird sense of imagination.

Who would have thought a little bit of diced petai in pork chili con carne (something similar to pork sambal at 6-10 nasi lemak , except actually better) with melted cheese, bacon, and that oh-so-juicy pork patty and buns could result in a burger that tastes so good?

My favorite animal meat in three different textures and three different tastes, with that fresh yet slightly pungent smell of petai, then there’s the cheese, the onion, tomato, and pickle. It’s just so goooood!

Did I mention that the wedges accompanying the burger is one of the best I’ve tasted from anywhere too? There’s a hint of rosemary to the potato, a mark that the chef doesn’t prepare the wedges just for the sake of serving the burger with some potato.

Well, other than the burger I’ve tasted the mushroom soup and the bacon ribs curry, they are good too, but I’m not sure when I’ll order other dishes and forgo my stomach space for P7 yet. We shall see.

  37. looking at this again, im so hungryyyyy…roarrrr

  38. Jess,
    Hahaha obsessed much! just go eat it!

  39. […] The event was held and Modesto Hartamas and we had quite a blast. Eric, Horng, Gareth, Terence, and me also teamed up to participate in the “murder mystery” competition and came up on top. At the end we had to compete against each other and it was Eric who walked away with the 32″ LCD TV and a year’s subscription for Astro B.yond services. (He ended up spending us a big meal at Cristang) […]

  40. […] ought to make any pork burger lover droll like a hungry puppies. Gareth rated this as good as the Cristang’s pork burger but totally different at the same time, with a completely different taste and texture […]

  41. You should try the pork burger at Fitou in Desa Parkcity. The patty is thick and juicy.

  42. tiff,
    oOo interesting, will try that some day!

  43. […] Cheng Leong of, avid wall climber, the original Melbourne shuffler, and lawyer extraordinaire only goes to several places for food. Village Park, Pappa Rich, Yut Kee, restaurant O&S, and maybe Cristang. […]

  44. I went to Cristang after reading your blog. 🙂 The pork burger was good but I think it is a bit pricey and the portion is quite small.

    The wedges was a disappointment cause it taste as though it was being fried yesterday. I was hoping that for a stronger petai taste. My husband who had it didn’t even know that there was petai. Lol..

    • Rojakgal: I think need to give feedbacks to the boss, they lost the chef a while back if I remember correctly

  45. Went there today after reading a lot of good reviews. Unfortunately it was a let down 🙁

    I had the P2 (without petai) and it was not nice at all. Potato wedges were small and oily and over seasoned with rosemary. The patty was also over seasoned, so no chance to taste anything else than spices. My girlfriend had the P7 with same problems with potato and burger drenched in that chilli. She was also disappointed that the petai was chopped in super tiny pieces, losing a lot of its attraction.

    Can not recommend this place right now. To bad, as it sounded so promising…
