It’s no secret that myBurgerLab really amps up the creativity with their menu items.
In fact, we’re putting that lightly. Because guess what they just rolled out this year?
In accordance with the CNY holidays, myBurgerLab (MBL) released the Crouching Fu Chok, Hidden Ginger burger while their sister company, myPizzaLab turned up the #huat with the Lucky Ducky Yee Sang pizza.
This should surprise us, but then again, these are the masterminds behind the controversial, yet oddly successful Boba Milk pizza.
Before we started screaming “that doesn’t go there!”, we wanted to hear them out so we headed over to their Seapark, PJ branch to try them out.
Here’s ‘Huat’ We Thought
The first thing we attacked was myPizzaLab’s Lucky Ducky Yee Sang pizza (RM38). This pizza is locked and loaded with smoked duck, shredded carrots, pineapples, cucumbers, fried fu chok, and seaweed—all spread over a gorgeous cheese base.
The unifying ingredient? A sweet plum sauce that really tied it all together.
Admittedly, we were a little unsure of how an oriental, vegetable based yee sang dish would go with the cheese. But after a few bites, you’ll note that the cheese isn’t overpowering at all, so you’re really just experiencing the classic taste of yee sang meshed with sourdough pizza.
The Lucky Ducky Yee Sang pizza is only available on GrabFood, or in-store if you choose to pay with GrabPay.
Next up was the Crouching Fu Chok, Hidden Ginger burger (RM18.80). This cheekily named burger combines all the good parts of a traditional Chinese meal.
Fried shrimp and fu chok? Check. Soy sauce, chilli padi, onions, and cilantro? Check.
Now lay it all on a sizzling chicken patty, drizzle some cinnamon orange sauce (with its hint of ginger), and you’ve got yourself a bold new adventure for your taste buds.
So What’s The Verdict?
If I’m being totally honest, I was a little on the fence with the yee sang pizza. It could’ve just been my taste buds having a tough time getting used to the combination of yee sang, vege, plum sauce, and cheese on pizza dough.
My colleagues, however, adored this fresh twist. According to them, the yee sang pizza was just the right amount of sweet and savoury.
Regardless, it’s at least a must-try novelty menu item that should be on every adventurous foodie’s list.
On the other hand, the Crouching Fu Chok, Hidden Ginger burger ticked all our boxes.
The juicy chicken patty (you can get this in beef too, by the way) went hand in hand with the tangy sauce, and was made even better by the crispy fu chok slices.
We know it’s just a burger, but it’s got a special way of making you feel like you’re back in your hometown, surrounded by family for the first CNY open house of the year. Yums!
Although not a part of their CNY inspired menu, we were still hungry for some after-meal snacks.
From their regular menu, we added Mushroom Fries (RM16.50) to our order, and these don’t look like your usual fries at all.
After a little digging, we found out that they were technically Portabella Mushroom slices that were deep-fried and then served with their signature, (and top secret!) red-hot sauce.
After feasting our hearts out, we finally decided on myBobaLab’s quirky little boba beer drinks to wash everything down.
We got the Crouching Tiger (RM12) and Spring Dragon (RM12.50) just to take a little walk on the wild side. Smooth, bubbly and oh-so thirst-quenching—they’re definitely something to try out in the near future if you get a chance.
If you prefer a stronger beer flavour, go for the Crouching Tiger. If you like your alcoholic drinks on the sweeter and more refreshing side, Spring Dragon is your go-to.
Their mushroom fries and boba beer are available all year round, but sadly, the CNY menu items are only being offered until January 26, 2020.
