Decided to head to Genting Highland last weekend just because it’s been a while since we get to experience that cool breeze, and while at Genting, might as well experience the “full treatment” by getting a meal you can’t find elsewhere in Malaysia, right?

So we went to one of the latest .. somewhat hyped restaurant in Malaysia – Five Guys.

To be fair, I have tried Five Guys before in my previous life during a trip to London. The experience was pretty positive as I recalled, so I thought I could seek a reproduction.

We lined up for a bit, and got into the ordering counter. It was pretty busy but ordering was done quite fast, we asked for 2 cheese burgers and a large fries (for sharing). Wanted to have their awesome milkshake but they ran out due to pandemic supply chain issue (as I was told), and we didn’t feel like paying RM 10 for soda fountain drinks..

The order took a short bit to get prepared, and those burgers were huge. Double patties, with cheese draped beautifully over and plenty of toppings too. Objectively, they were pretty decent burgers, but perhaps not RM 40 decent in 2021’s money. You could get better tasting burgers for cheaper (Not at Genting probably) at one of the many gourmet burger joints in Klang Valley.

The fries, however, were very good (maybe not RM 30 good) and came in huge portion. Regrettably they also ran out of Cajun flavor that we had wanted to try.

Overall, the experience was slightly meh. Paying 8.25 pounds for a burger in London is cheaper than RM 40 in Malaysia, even if direct conversion doesn’t translate. Oh well, will try other stuff next round.

    I thought the price is a bit on the high side…perhaps it is because of the location?

    I didn’t try their burger on my last visit to Genting. Didn’t have anyone to share the burger with me but I’ll definitely visit them when the Pavilion outlet is opened and hopefully price will be at least 10-15% cheaper. Still, I’m going to have someone to share with me and then go for a cheaper meal after that. Hahah…
