Burger King

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

The wildly anticipated Burger King finally arrived the shores of Penang. Setting up its roots in a corner lot of Promenade 28, the store opening is celebrated with opening promotion that attracted a throng of curious customers.
Just for today, the signature Whooper (RM10.95) burger is offered at RM1.00 with purchase of any drink (RM3.00). Sound like a bargain!
After a grueling hour-long queue, we finally received our order of 2 Whooper burgers, sides and drinks.
The Whooper burger is a single beef patty sandwiched with sesame buns. The patty is laid with shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, onions and pickles. The patty is juicy and easy on the mouth. The sesame bun is also quite soft and fluffy. Overall, the taste is comparable to McDonald's Beefburger (ignoring size difference), but I think the king has a slight edge over the clown.
We placed an order for Onion Rings (RM3.90) as well. The onion under the batter is still fresh and juicy.
The Strawberry Burger King Sundae (RM2.95) is just a regular vanilla-flavored ice cream with strawberry syrup. It is virtually indistinguishable from McDonald's counterpart. For all we know, they may be sourcing ingredients from the same supplier anyway.
As required for the opening promotion, we ordered a medium-sized Coke and Grape.
