Sugar, sugar (2)…

Nope, this is not going to be a post on the current sugar shortage in some of the states in the country but on our very own Sarawak’s franchise – the Sugar Bun fast food chain.

I saw in their advertisement in the local daily that they have two new items – smoked beef cheese burger and smoked chicken cheese burger. Smoked? Did somebody say smoked? Ooo…I love anything that’s smoked – smoked ham, smoked cheese, smoked barbecue sauce…and what more to say our local salai ikan (smoked fish), salai babi hutan (smoked wild boar meat)… Yum! Yum! So I made my way to the branch near my house…

It used to be a place where teenagers hang out and I loved the jukebox where I could play some of the songs that I loved (not that I was a teenager then), but lately, it seems that it has become more of a family restaurant with a children play area on the other side.

I had the smoked beef cheese burger…

…which turned out to be a beef burger with a slice of smoked cheese and a slice of smoked beef bacon…

It certainly looked quite messy but I actually found it very nice. The taste of the smoked bacon certainly enhanced the taste of the beef burger but at RM5.90 each, I would think twice about going there too often…not with what I’m getting for my measly pension! LOL!!!

I also ordered what they call “peach ice cream” (RM3.50) and got this…

I do not like chocolate ice cream nor sweet corn. The other flavour – paddle pop or something was fine by me. I would prefer vanilla or raspberry ripple or rum and raisin…or even the soft ice cream that we get at McDonald’s…instead of these three scoops with a few thin slices of canned peach, a sprinkling of raisins and some tiny bits of jelly.

The bill came up to RM9.87 with the 5% government tax. Ah well…I guess I deserve to pamper myself once in a while, don’t you think so? LOL!!!
