Food hunting is one of Malaysians’ many favourite downtime activities. Not only do we discover the ultimate food haven or holy grail during our searches, we also get to savour a variety of delectable dishes along the way. But with the countless and wide array of Klang Valley cafes, restaurants and bistros calling out to us, food hunting is not an easy task. That’s why we’ve decided to make your next food crawl so much easier.
If you’re in the mood for tasty burgers and tacos, here are six places you should definitely check out:
You know what’s better than a normal-sized burger? A bite-sized burger. Grill Haven’s scrumptious burgers and rolls are not to be missed, as once it disappears from your hand, you’ll be asking for more. From chicken to beef and even prawn, you’ll be remiss not to taste each of Grill Haven’s creations tucked in soft, pillowy potato buns.

For our chicken-only lovers out there, this one’s for you. In case you haven’t heard of the iconic Fowlboys, you’re missing out. The house special is a massive, crunchy chicken thigh, drizzled with Fowlboys’ most famous house sauce, tucked between bouncy potato buns. It’s delicious, juicy and packed with flavour – you’ll be dreaming of this burger for days. If you want a more Western flavour, the joint also serves chicken and waffles for a crunchy and sweet kick.

Burgers are all about being hearty, and Woodfire takes burger heartiness to the next level. We’re talking about layers and layers of meat and veggies, covered in a delectable sauce that is squished together between two perfectly-toasted buns. While there’s mostly a choice between a chicken or beef patty, there are eight different options that makes one burger different from another.

For tacos, the first place you should definitely visit is Los Tacos. If you ever see those videos on TikTok where people are devouring birria tacos like there’s no tomorrow, now you know where to find them. This taco joint is famous for its scrumptious and juicy birria tacos. However, if you’re not into that, don’t fret, as Los Tacos also serves chipotle chicken and vegetarian-friendly plant-based patty.
