Burgers. Who doesn’t love burgers? There’s something for everyone when it comes to burgers, sweet, savoury, meaty, vegetarian, classic, weird, the list goes on. People have also been coming up with their own personalized twists on the infamous meat sandwich, switching up the meat, bread, toppings, and sauces with anything and everything else you can possibly think of (peanut butter and jelly burger, anyone?). But if you’re broke and are sick of eating the same old fast-food burgers, worry not for there are plenty of burger joints in the Klang Valley that will serve you a burger for under RM16!
