For the love of street burgers, here’s another one you should add to your must try list! Tapau Porky Burger is a humble burger stall that is operated by two sisters, Jan and Jess. They started their burger stall after getting inspired by the burger places that they went to in Perak, KL and Miri itself.
Jan is actually still studying, and will be going off to further her last semester in West Malaysia in June 2022. She shared with me her plans to put the burger business on hold until she completes her studies, when asked if she was going to continue the business in the future. So, if you guys don’t want to miss out trying their unique, delicious pork burger, be sure to visit them before June 2022!
Alrighty, now let’s get to the most exciting part, them burgers! WARNING, mouth-watering content ahead.
There’s so mushroom in my heart for you.. – Eporky Burger
Have you ever heard of mushroom burger? Mushroom burgers originated from the Philiphines, but they are mushroom patty. We usually come across burgers that has mushroom sauce too, but Porky’s burger mushroom burger has deep-fried Enoki mushroom in their burger.
What’s inside the Eporky burger? There’s cabbage, cucumber, mayonnaise, and chilli sauce with of course pork patty, and also topped off with crispy deep-fried enoki mushroom. The Eporky burger is a recipe they came up with after getting inspired by a burger place in Kuala Lumpur. With the thought of bringing the uniqueness they found there back to Miri, Sarawak, born was the Eporky Burger!
Are you squidding me? – Sipork
Nope, we sure aren’t! Next, we have the seafood burger of Tapau Porky Burger, the Sipork Burger. This burger has pork patty, and topped with squid, egg, dry seaweed and paired with sweet chili and buttermilk sauce. Fuhh! Sounds a lot huh. You be the judge. Just look at how generous they are with the ingredients and sauce.
In my opinion, the seaweed in the burger gave it the extra oomph!
Avengers! A-sambal! – Sampork
The third burger we had was the Sampork! So basically, it’s pork burger topped with Sambal ikan bilis. If you love your burger spicy, this is definitely for you! I loveeeee everything spicy. Malaysians do love their food spicy. Did you know that we’re actually no 3 on the list for countries with the spiciest food?
Some might not fancy this because what an odd combination to have pork patties paired with ikan bilis? I’d say that it’ll surprise you. I liked it because of the crispy sambal and the spicyness it adds to the burger.
Popger by Tapau Porky Burger
Here’s another great one – the Popger. The inspiration behind this one for the two sisters were a burger stall in Perak that sold burger wrapped with Popiah skin! After trying that burger, they immediately thought they should try to come up with one of their own special recipe for it.
I’d suggest eating this while it’s still hot and crispy! Can do a little ASMR while you’re at it! Did you see mine? My rating for this one? 10/10 . I’ve never had burger wrapped with popiah before, thus this was my first time. Now, this Popger is THE benchmark for a great popiah burger for me!
Hogs and kisses from Tapau Porky Burger – Gemuk
Gemuk is one of the people’s favorite too! It’s called Gemuk due to the super THICC Pork belly that they used for the burger. This one is paired with Honey BBQ sauce which gives you the savory end of the BBQ spectrum. It has that caramelized sauce taste, not too sweet but just pure, and deeper browner sweet. I hope I’m making sense!
Sweet dreams are made of Bacocheese
Who am I to diss a brie? Cheese lovers assemble! IDK what is it about us and cheese, but we do LOVE cheese. Here we have Bacocheese burger which consists of scramble egg and bacon paired with cheese sauce. Would you look at the amount of cheese it has. I’d say this one is such a big portion and get your tissues ready, eating this will leave you sauc-y. *winks* Badumtssss!
On top of all that, you can order this burger a la carte or set. The set comes with french fries and canned drinks. Canned drink choices are Pepsi, Cola and Chrysanthemum tea. Other than that, you can also add on more of everything if you wish! Refer below for the prices and add ons.
Overall, this burger place is for sure serves oddly, unique and delicious pork burgers! Jan says that what makes them really unique is not only the special ingredients, but it’s also their sauce. It all plays an important role in enhancing the taste of the burger more. All sauce recipes are from the two sisters. So, don’t miss out on trying their burger before Jan proceed to further her studies in June 2022. Let us know what you think of the burgers if you have tried them ya.
