2nd Anniversary – A Big Thank You

2anniversary_01

We would like to take this time to thank all of you who have contributed to the event. The 4 homes – Agathians ShelterUnited Learning CenterBeautiful Gates Foundation (Puchong) & St Jude’s Home have expressed gratitude to all of you who were part of this awesome donation drive. You have no idea how much of difference all of you have made to their lives with all the donation provided. We have racked up to about RM 4000 in cash and close to 50 boxes of food items in just one day!  

On a side note, the homes above are looking out for volunteers, so if you or your friends who would like to take your time and contribute back to them, do contact them with the links above to find out how you can contribute further.

As for us, we had so much fun serving all of you who came. Firstly, a big thank you goes out to the gang from The Ming Thing and friends for giving up their time and also actually getting their hands dirty working for a full 4-5 hours helping giving out burgers, drinks, cleaning tables and etc to our customers. Special mention goes to MingHan, MingYue, LihRen, Michelle Lee, Fiqa, Bryan Lim, Bryzoid, Jeremy Choy, Raffi Thng, Jean Chu, Dan Khoo, Ernest Ng, Dennis Yin, Ivan, Jing Xiu and Darren Wong. (We’re srry if we left out any names) You were all amazing and we are totally entertained by your antics!

The next shoutout goes to our awesome Geeks, who all volunteered their time (yes, all ‘pro bono’) to help out at both Labs. We can sing praises when it comes to the Geeks, they are all hardworking, loyal and just generally good people! We are truly fortunate to be working side by side with them, and we can’t ask for a better team. Loving you guys and girls a lot!

Finally, most importantly, once again, it’s you. You, the people who came in droves with all your charitable goods and monetary donations (Some didn’t even want burgers, they just wanted to donate food stuff!). We couldn’t have done it without your support. You have shown that Malaysians are a caring bunch and that we as a society still cares for one another. Also, we would like to give a shoutout to Pepsi Co, Smooshie, Simplot, and Inkugram to support this event in kind and in person. :) #malaysiansdocare

*For those of you who were at SeaPark, we’re sure you guys had fun with the Ming Crew serving you burgers, cleaning tables and interact with you guys. :D

You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you. ― John Bunyan

FMFA 2014 – You Can’t Party Hungry

10013838_774668689211865_477326096_nYup, you read it right. From 13-15th March, we will be serving burgers at one of the hottest Music Events – Future Music Festival Asia. This year’s location will be at Bukit Jalil Station and similarly like last year, we will be serving freshly cooked burgers on the spot.

We will be serving ShroomBomb – cheesy concoction of Umami filled mushrooms on top of a quarter pounder of juicy Beef/Chicken seared patties. Like every one of us, we can’t party hungry, so we hope you can drop by even if it’s just a “hello”.

Eat! Sleep! Rave! Repeat!

P.S. Both our SeaPark outlet and OUG outlet will still be running :)

13 Geeky Things @myBurgerLab in 2013

I figured it would be fun to recapture few of the geeky moments (hey what being a geek is for if we are not gonna do any geeky stuff ;) ) that we had at myBurgerLab, for making it an unforgettable 2013.

    1. OUG Lab
      oug_labWe brought our geekiness to OUG,KL this year, with the same opening days and hours. This space is slightly bigger than our old SeaPark branch and it has a different soda dispenser (shhh…). The 2nd geeky BurgerLab is located at 8, Jalan Awan Hijau, Taman OUG, 58200 KL. Opening our doors same time from 5.00pm till 10.15pm (kitchen closes), we hope to see more of you around the neighborhood there.

 

    1. 1st Year Anniversary with a Gesture
      annualThe Lab turned 1 this year and it was great fun to see many of you came and support not only us but also for a good cause – can food charity drive. It was definitely a great sight to see Malaysians coming together to make a difference to the community.

 

    1. Battling Out on Burgers
      Yup, it can’t be any geekier than having our own Burger Battle to compete with each other by coming up with various burger recipes. Twice this year that we saw our geeks coming together with passion, dedication and innovation to wow the judges. I got to admit, there’s some pretty crazy combination right there. Feels like we can pull off a myBurgerLab Signature restaurant already. And certainly, we would also like to thank our judges for stuffing themselves with endless burgers.
      Check out our short clips of both battles below.

 

    1. FMFA & NuffNang
      19 9We had great fun in serving burgers in our 2 big events this year – the awesome FMFA at Sepang and first ever NuffNang Food Fest (#NNFoodFest). Man, being at these 2 events had loads of fun. We had to serve thousand over buns in the span of 2 days (and a guy flying into our booth Superman style at end of Day 1) and it was crazy fun with the headbobbling trance music in the background.

 

    1. DOTA?
      53Yes another Geek Alert! We had a mini Lan Party for DOTA 2 players at the Lab, with our own team playing against 3 other teams. We are thankful to StashDen and our fans for such a great response. Our geeks definitely have to buck up for the next one apart from just flipping burgers.

 

    1. Yes, Tofu
      tofuVege lovers would love this, as the Geeky R&D team came up an alternative for you! Yup, you can swap patties of any burgers (check with our geeks to see if it’s recommended of course!) to tofu patty. Limited quantities only though!

 

    1. Gotten your Paycheck?
      paycheckAn experiment (not launched) to try out good cut of beef for our burgers. It needs more work though, but stay tuned this year. Sorry if this just made your new year resolution to be compromised.

 

    1. What??! Cheese in Patty?
      cheeseinburgerThis is as Lab Geekiness to another level. Again this was just Testing, and it’s not launched yet. Perhaps you can do one to your Ramly at home just to test them out for fun.

 

    1. Geeky Tip Jars
      tipjartipjar2
      Creative flair deserve some admiration. Our geeks had to figure out a way to fish for tips when their bosses were too cheapskate. And this definitely deserve a spot here!

 

    1. SeaPark just got doubled
      We opened up the 1st floor of SeaPark for extra seating in December. The long awaited MORE SPACE request has been fulfilled. Now there’s very little “I need your seats stare” over your shoulders. We would like to apologise deeply on how long it took us so long to do this but we hope that you and your group of friends can enjoy yourselves better from now on.

 

    1. And the Birthday Boy/Girl went wild
      cake
      Our “Project C” Geek hit the home run with this miniature 2 inch diameter 100g Black Burger Cake for the December babies (yup it only looks big only in photo). It was launched for free with a 3 day ahead request and we would like to thank all of you who were willing to be our guinea pig. She would like to personally give a shoutout to many of you who ordered it.

 

    1. Got Increase Price or Not?
      2014, year of increment on everything else except salary. Yup it’s going to be a tough year for everyone. With that, we had to put our geeky minds to test this year after pledging that we would remain our prices next year. Oh and btw, the awesome chicken joint in town is tagging along the bandwagon as well.

 

  1. Gratitude Box
    gratitude boxWhat a better way to end the year than to say thanks to our geeks for all the contribution they have given to the customers. Emphasizing on customer interaction and instragamable burgers, they have done a fabulous job for making the year 2013 an awesome one.

God so much to keep up with for 2014. Looks like we have to challenge ourselves to pull off 14 things to achieve for 2014!

The Way To A Happy Tummy

Dear Burger fans and <3ers, the time has come!

We are located at 14, Jalan 21/22, SeaPark, 46300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Or you can check us out on Google Map here -> http://goo.gl/ovcKXd

Our menu will expand slowly as the week passes!

The Periodic Table Lesson

We figured we should do something cool on our wall, in regards to a Lab feel. So after lots of spraying with stencils, this is what we came with. Thought you will never see a chemistry class in a restaurant ever again? June.21.2012 Well this is what we came up. Our own periodic table. Check us out at the Lab once we are open!

It was an Ooey Gooey Night

It was indeed an emotional night for us at myBurgerLab as it was the last session of our pop up restaurant in the Red Beanbag (our good pal’s place). To end it with a bang, our new creation Ooey Gooey Stack was rolled out that night. Portabella mushroom for the win!!
[Sorry Khai Sim (our biggest fan) that you had to miss out on that]

We had yet another full house, with many new faces came to indulge in our burgers. This time, we were excited to host Kheong and family (owner of the Red Beanbag) and seeing them nom nom every single bite of our burger was a great moment. Their advice and feedback has guided us a lot throughout our journey.

A food writer from LifestyleAsia came and tried our burgers as well. *Had to make a good impression for a burger lover*. The feedback was pretty positive. Thanks Alexandra! We also hosted Christopher Tock and his friends as well as Kelly Siew and Louise Xin (thanks for making it to our last session :D)

There were indeed many request for our charcoal buns after seeing photos of our previous session being posted up on our Fan Page. Every single one of them who tried it loved it.

There were indeed some misses on the chicken but fortunately the Portabella infusion got the rave for that night.

We are really honoured to be featured on

  1.  World of Tockism - http://spinzer.us/2012/04/myburgerlab-the-teaser/
  2. Semi-Charmed Life - http://khai-sim.blogspot.com/2012/04/myburgerlab-taking-food-science.html

Lastly, we would to extend our biggest thanks to Kheong and family for allowing us to run our pop up restaurant in the Red Beanbag (they serve awesome breakfast and coffee). We couldn’t have done all these sessions if it weren’t for their kind gesture. Also, not forgetting our fans for giving us all the valuable feedback on our product and concept which has help us improved a lot. And also our great friends who came and helped us out, especially Lih Ren (our lifesaver).

It was an end to a milestone, an exciting first part of the journey and now it’s time to move to the next, with putting the public as our priority – serving simply juicy burgers (the way it should be). It will be a very hectic 2 months nontheless, so please stay tuned to find out our progress. If you have yet to be our fan – join us here!

Sincerely from us,

A Night of Black and White

No, it wasn’t the dress code. It was the first time where we rolled out our bamboo charcoal buns and our usual white fluffy buns. 2 trays of each were made, with one special customer gotten the special Ying and Yang bun :)

It was indeed a busy night. Full house to the max and it was so great to see people’s face lit up upon the first bite. Someone even mentioned that it was addictive and some had to try hard to refrain themselves from the sinful second round (while a few had to have seconds!).

It seriously by far the best BURGER i’ve had man!!! Compliments to you guys!!! :D Rmb to invite me for the next round!! Haha… bro addicted d..

We rolled out a new product at the lab that night, the Spiced Hawaiian Chicken Schnitzel with a big grilled Pineapple ring in it and the responses seemed to be pretty good.

[nggallery id=4]

It was indeed a long day for the back of the house staffs but the satisfactory feeling after the night was really overwhelming for us as everyone did a really fine job. Credits to Lih Ren and Sawa Ko for lending us a hand as well. And also a shoutout to Khai Sim for being the most loyal myBurgerLab fan so far.

Experiment 2.2 – Open for Reservation

Yup, the lab will be open for reservation. Do join our mailing list here to be notified through email so that you can reserve your spot. First come first serve :)

We had our second stress test last night, serving about 30 customers. Everything was pretty smooth overall. There were just a few over toasted buns but we managed to pull it off. A+ was our main seller for the whole night and the coral lettuce on every burger just makes it look really awesome.

Our lab geek, Ren Yi, definitely got a number of pointers from his friends from the Cafe World. Knowing his passion to continually improving the product, we at the lab are excited to see what he is going to pull off next.

[nggallery id=2]

We really want to extend our appreciation to everyone that came. We really hope everyone enjoyed the night. Also a big thanks to Lih Ren for helping us yet again in the kitchen.
