They serve home cooked gourmet fast food meals like Cheeseburgers, Shrimp Po Boy, Lamb & Mash and many more. Their best sellers are the Cheeseburgers and Lamb & Mash; selling an average of 50 burgers and 20 servings of Lamb & Mash at a time.

Great food served by great people, plus they have a scheduled location to serve their Klang Valley fans!
Parking and seating could be challenging especially on weekends - depending on location.
Mad Miles' most popular dishes are their signature Shrimp Po Boy and Lamb & Mash. The Lamb & Mash consists of tender cuts of lamb in a meaty slow-cooked gravy, served with a side of soft-velvety mash. Now the Shrimp Po Boy is made up of deep-fried crispy prawns covered in a golden breadcrumb coating doused with their special homemade sauces which is nicely tucked between a toasted hot-dog bun. Both are wonderful options that will satisfy your evening craving for fast food with a 'gourmet' twist.
I started the night with the Lamb & Mash. The dish looked fairly simple; on one side you have the mash potatoes and on the other you have the lamb stew. Look can be deceiving and my description can sound like "mehhh..." but let me just tell you how you'd go "oh my!" once this combination hits your mouth. Mad Miles do serve some pretty good mash potato; smooth, fluffy and melt in your mouth. Then comes the succulent and moist Lamb. You cannot go wrong with this pair, if you're looking for something hearty and warm to end your long day.
They braised the lamb for two hours to make it tender and flavourful. The gravy was thick, sticking on to the meat like second skin. It has a nice amount of spices to compliment the dish as a whole. This definitely felt like a homely dish, humble but full of love.
After that I had the Shrimp Po Boy. Po Boy essentially means poor man's sandwich, which originally comes from Lousiana, it usually consists of roast beef or fried seafood in between buns. Going back to the shrimp Po Boy, the breaded shrimp was fried till golden, served with their own blend of sauces, on a bed of salad and between a baguette-like bread.
At the first bite you get crunchy texture of the bread,as you bite down, you will get to the softer crispiness of the prawns. It was nothing short of pure awesomeness. The prawns were had a crisp outer layer while still retaining the texture that is akin to fresh prawns. Their homemade bread may be a bit tough, but it helps to hold the sandwich together, nothing is worst than your sandwich falling apart after the first bite.
Initially Mad Miles was located at a parking lot behind BHP Melawati sharing the same space as Gastro food truck. After a couple months of operations, they decided to move to Tapak Urban Street Dining in the heart of Kuala Lumpur which is where they are located now.
If you are looking for gourmet fast food made with fresh ingredients, then I definitely recommend Mad Miles. Although the food is precooked at the Mad Miles secret kitchen,and then assembled at the food truck, it doesn't compromise on the quality of the food, they're just simply really good. Mad Miles is a must visit for all food truck lovers in KL.
