Dip ‘n Dip, Bangsar & myBurgerLab, Seapark!

Salutations, dear readers! Open-mouthed smile I bid thee good day!

I would like to begin this post with a very proud proclamation… that my braces are officially off for the second time! Please take about four seconds to appreciate my metal-free teeth and somewhat miraculously wind-swept hair in the above photograph.

Thank you.

With Baby J at BurgerLab!

I’m a huge Elvis Presley fan and have been itching to try BurgerLab’s Elvis burger off their Secret Menu (means you gotta know it to order it. You won’t just find it on the menu signboard!), so along with my baby brother, Baby J, and Tiam (who will henceforth be referred to as Tummy), we headed out for a day of gluttony!

I love how we had ice-cold water to make the long wait in the queue more bearable.

And of course, there’s always the amusing signboards with cute written notes, thumb-tacked faces (poor souls), and the occasional familiar face. Spot Chien Teng! Open-mouthed smile

A glimpse of their menu signboard to give you an idea of what to order. Just add RM6 for a drink and fries!

Tummy & BabyJ!

Yes, I’m nicknaming my buddies! I think it gives them an added dimension!

Driver of the day! Open-mouthed smile

Heart Attack!

Another one off the Secret Menu, my brother’s burger, the Heart Attack looked like an extreme beast. If not mistaken, it was stacked with triple patties and a whole lot of cheese, perfect for clogging your arteries and bringing you one step closer to.. yes, a heart attack.

He insists his virgin myBurgerLab experience was the best, but then again, I doubt he has any complaints either. Just look at that focus as he eats!

I fulfilled my curiosity for some Elvis goodness with my Jammin’ With Elvis burger, which had a moist beef patty accompanied by jam and peanut butter, just the way Elvis would’ve liked it!

My burger was more room temperature than warm (which was sort of disappointing), but the gooey, slightly salty peanut butter was so good! Just like how when one eats a toasted peanut butter sandwich and gets a yummy melty peanuty mess stuck on the roof of their mouth, the Elvis burger left a lingering peanut butter aftertaste which I throughly enjoyed.

I know a few who aren’t fans of sweet and savoury merging together, but if you’ve had IKEA meatballs, then the jam shouldn’t be a problem, and to be honest, peanut butter is more salty than sweet anyway! Smile with tongue out

Not satisfied with our burgers alone, we headed to Bangsar for a taste of some chocolate-y goodness at Dip ‘n Dip, with it’s ugly red walls which strike me as angry more than cosy.

But in the presence of such comfort food, who can complain?

A little on the pricey side, dip ‘n dip is only really worth it when you go with a group of friends and are equipped with your own water bottles. With the dishes already being somewhat costly on its own (about RM20 – RM30), you really don’t want to be spending RM5 on a bottle of water.

Bangsar Village which is just a walk away has plenty of pharmacies that sell water bottles if you’d like to get them beforehand. #cheapskate

DSC_0508Fettucine Crepe! Just look at that glorious chocolate.. Red heart

This crepe is my favourite and in my opinion, is a must try! Thumbs upThumbs upThumbs upThumbs upThumbs upThumbs up

When serving you, the waiter drizzles the chocolate right in front of you and as an easily fascinated individual, I quite enjoyed watching him do that from that height! I kept wondering what would happen if he missed and accidentally poured the chocolate on the table. Smile with tongue out

The best part about this crepe is probably the accompanying ice-cream which tastes so refreshing and cold sliding down your throat after a bite of chocolate smothered crepe.

The triple chocolate crepe is another one of their popular dishes.

Most people choose to get the Brownies Crepe which looks exactly the same but is significantly more chocolatey with a layer of brownies in between. It’s about RM10 more expensive than the triple choc crepe though and I personally found the chocolate much too empowering so I would go with the triple choc any day!

And although you may be tempted to go chocolate-crazy and order only the chocolate dishes in its entirety, it is much wiser to get a fruit dish or something a little more variety.. unless of course you don’t mind a sorethroat the next morning and a month-long aversion to chocolate. I speak from experience here!

DSC_0509
I think the dish above was called a cheesecake pizza or something similar and although it was no where close to being a pizza Pizza and wasn’t very impressive, the fruits were such a welcome respite from the chocolate!
