Durian season is one reason for stalls and restaurants to come up with exciting new durian dishes.
Ric’s Burger in Penang, Malaysia
In the same vein, Ric’s Burger in Penang has launched a Musang King durian burger at RM25.90 (S$8.60).
According to Penang Foodie, Ric’s Burger first started as a night market stall specialising in burgers and shakes.
Musang King Durian Burger
Their Musang King durian burger patties are made from the flesh of Penang Musang King durians, mozzarella cheese, butter and double coated with eggs and breadcrumbs.
The patties are then deep fried till golden and crispy, before more cheese and durian flesh is melted into a paste to be spread in between the burger buns.
Here’s a closer look at how they prepare their Musang King durian burgers:
If durian is not your thing, the eatery also has other savoury options, including bacon with pork patty, the latter being their signature:

Baconzilla (RM 16.90). • Established since 2011 as a hawker stall in night markets, @ricsburgermy has finally made a comeback with its new shop at Bayan Lepas. I really applaud their excellent service on the day of visit, when we were disappointed to find out they were under renovation, but the staff made an extra effort to inform us that the kitchen was still operating and we could do a takeaway. Eventually they even let us dine in if we didn’t mind the messiness. • We were recommended the hot favourite, Baconzilla, a perfect choice for bacon lovers. Not only were their burger buns house-made, the pork patty, which Ric’s burger is well-known for, was also made in-house. They surely lived up to their name for being a porky smashed burger specialist. Juicy with a tender texture, the pork patty was stacked with bacon, candied bacon, caramelized onions. Each bite came with a symphony of sweet and savory outburst, made evident by melted cheddar cheese and a secret Ric’s sauce, pungent like mustard. The bacon slices were on point especially those crispy edges and the candied bacon that reminded me of bak kwa. Though the burger seemed really meaty, it was surprisingly satisfying instead. • If that’s too much, they also have the Ric’s original pork burger with just the pork patty and caramelized onions. 5 pork burgers and 1 fish burger on the menu to choose from. Pair the burger with sides such as Ric’s fries (+RM 6.50), 1/4 dozen fried bacon strips (+RM 6.50) or spam fries (+RM 7.90) and a drink to make it a wholesome combo. #burpple #burpplesg #sgfoodies #foodporn #instafood #foodphotography #foodstagram #foodgasm #malaysiafoodporn #malaysiafood #malaysiafoodie #penang #penangfoodhunt #penangfoodie #penangfoods #penangfoodheaven #pulaupinang #ricsburger #ricsburgermy #baconzilla
