But Could You Eat A Whole One?

This Burger Bar has a rather interesting menu...
Situated on the corner of Tengkat Tong Shin and Jalan Sahabat,opposite the new and rather useless Carrefour Express,Diamond Burger Bar has been operating for about a month,every night.
It has an extensive menu of Burgers from RM 2-RM 7 but I haven't been drunk enough or hungry enough to want to sample one of their delights....but there is always someone placing an order so I guess they can't be too bad.
Apart from the usual Beef Burger you can choose from; Rabbit, Catfish,Ostrich,Lamb and even Camel.
That made me think,if you order a Camel Burger from your car,would it tip-over like in the Flintstones?
And...they even have a "Baby Burger" on the not to ask!

Never Mine Bar Changkat Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur

Never Mine is the new name for what was the unpopular Cin-Cin Champagne Bar.
Gone is the plush velvet low-seating to be replaced with high tables and stools.
Gone is the fancy lighting to be replaced by a disco-ball!

One sidewall has been painted white so it's not all black and chrome but there are still a few too many mirrors for my liking....I like to look at other people when I'm drinking...not to be reminded how I look,but I have noticed that the more I drink,the better-looking I become!

The decor is "stark-modern"
As always,the music is too loud but the price of the beer makes-up for that.
Tiger at RM 10 per mug all night long or 3 pints for RM 58 seems pretty good value.
Bar snacks are available,all supplied via Baan 26 Thai Restaurant and range from RM 15-RM 30.

The bar inside is a bit too stark and impersonal for my liking but I could get used to it.
The outside seating is a little hot and airless unless you pick a cool night to go out.whilst the upstairs balcony is very popular.

As I've mentioned before it's always good to see new places opening and Never Mine could become one of the most popular Bars on the street for it's no-nonsense,unpretentious atmosphere and value-for-money beer.

Bergie Evergreen Pub and Restaurant Jalan Berangan Kuala Lumpur

The road that runs parallel to Changkat Bukit Bintang which has BarKita,Albion and Bar Italia now has a new addition-Bergie Evergreen Pub.
I'm not really sure what a "Bergie" is but the waiter pointed to a weird statue in the corner...some sort of troll/ idol.
The bar has been open for about a month and looks pretty good.
Nice Black and White decor.
Friendly staff.
When I walked past at 9pm on a Saturday it was empty but so was BarKita...perhaps it gets busier later.
I don't really like going into empty bars but the staff were quite happy to chat outside.
It's yet another outlet that sells Tiger-I really don't know what the guys at Carlsberg are doing they just don't seem to be interested in doing business in this part of town.
If I'm not mistaken the only bars that sell Carlsberg are BarKita and Spritz,next to Gypsy.
At the moment Bergie Bar has a good promotion,3 pints of Tiger for RM 55 otherwise the normal price of RM 15 for a mug seems way,way too pricey.
Various promotions run throughout the week such as half-price cocktails on Tuesdays and on Wednesdays buy one get one free for pints of Tiger or Heineken.
A set lunch during the week is RM 10 ++ whilst on Sundays you can get a roast brunch for RM 40 ++
It's always good to see new bars opening and Bergie is definitely worth a visit.
If you want a slightly different atmosphere to the late night mayhem that can erupt on Changkat Bukit Bintang then the outlets on Jalan Berangan offer something a bit more relaxed and chilled.
