Carl’s Jr, One Utama

How to finish a 30-page review report in 2 days? Then what if you have another mid-term exam paper on the next day of the report’s dateline? Well I did just that and as for that 30-page report, I managed to wrap it up in just about 36 hours. The worst part of this is there are more exam papers, presentation, and assignments meeting its due date in the coming two weeks. By the way, happy Valentine!

After missing out from the fast food scene in Malaysia, Carl’s Jr is back after its withdrawal from the Malaysian market in 1998. Opened its first branch in One Utama, Carl’s Jr had opened its second outlet at Midvalley and the recent one at Pavilion KL. The actual thing is that I have never tried Carl’s Jr humungous burgers; comparatively larger than most of the burgers from their local competitors. This is America’s best for the Malaysian palate. So I ventured out to One Utama with my dear friend to take me to Carl’s Jr, a promise which he kept since last year when the restaurant opened. I was very aware that serving size at Carl’s Jr is pretty much the standard serving size in any common fast food chain in the States. Americans love everything huge, including their burgers though they lost to the Europeans when it comes to airplanes.

After asking for the recommended menu from the food server at the counter, I’ve decided to try one of Carl’s Jr signature charbroiled burgers, Super Star with cheese. I’m a little appalled by the fact that I did not receive my burger right after I made my purchase, so I had to wait for a little while. Then finally, it came. The largest burger I have ever seen. So far. It’s huge, definitely huge. I also like the way they wrapped their burgers in the packaging. Handling was surprising easy as well. I was worried that the burger was too big to fit in my mouth but it did. Well eating the burger can be quite a challenge. Messy stains are expected. You can’t possibly finish the burger without leaving any single trace to your hand. At least I think I did a good job to minimize that. But don’t fret, there is the sink for your own convenience and moreover, an automated hand dryer is also available for use.

Carl's Jr, One UtamaThe real deal.

Now for the tasting. The burger is by far, the best burger I have ever tried. The ingredients for the burger were all fresh, right down to the lettuce and tomato slices. They were very generous to fit in many fresh dressings into my burger. And also the patty. The patty was not only fresh, it was also tender. Not exactly the best patty I’ve ever ate but it was good. Honestly speaking, you cannot compared Carl’s Jr burgers standard with all other burgers from KFC and McDonald’s. It deserves a class of its own. KFC and McDonald’s are not done with the insults yet. The fries served in Carl’s Jr were also superb. Definitely better than what we have in KFC and McDonald’s. The potatoes used for their fries seems fresh, though I can’t really tell the difference. Again, not exactly the best french fries I’ve ever had but I can reserve my compliments to its large size and fresh appearance.

Prices for the meal vary from the ala-carte and set menu. For certain, the set meals would more than RM 10 per se. Sorry that I can’t find any contact details of all their chain restaurants in Malaysia but what I can tell is Carl’s Jr restaurants are located at One Utama, Midvally and Pavilion KL. Will update this once I get my hands on the information.
