The Burger Factory @ Kota Kemuning

I am not really a burger fan and certainly am not inclined to go out of my way to hunt for meat patties sandwiched in buns.  I always associate burgers with fast food (and that’s not a food preference I place high up on my list) despite the recent craze on this fad where new [...]
