Mike, who runs his unique burger stall in Section 14 was a sous chef for over 12 years. Then, about 2 years ago he decided to take the plunge into his own business and came up with his own brand of gourmet street burgers. His burgers are 100% homemade and he uses the best meat he can find namely topside.
Grill and Celup!
He first grills them, then dips it in his special sauces (hence 'celup') and grills them back before putting toppings and cheeses on top.
You can get toppings like sauteed mushrooms on top
There are usually 4 'celup' sauces on offer daily, a cheese sauce, black pepper (how can we live without black pepper?), a kung pow sauce (this is a fan favourite) and a mushroom sauce. He claims that sauces are his specialty.

He became famous via his cheeky McKangkung. During the whole kangkung hype he took up a challenge from one of his customers and created a kangkung burger. This is a patty dipped in a special sambal belacan sauce, modified from his mum's cherished recipe and then topped with thinly sliced kangkung, onions and pineapples. It's currently off menu for the moment. "One of the greatest satisfaction I get is from seeing the looks on my customers' faces when they eat my burgers," he smiles.
You can find Mike at his stall at Bus Stand, Jalan 14/48, Section 14, Near Playground (off Jalan 222), PJ.
Come meet Mike at I Eat Burgers this 7th June at Padang Timur, Petaling Jaya from 11am to 11pm. The McKangkung will be making a comeback at this event!
