Frazer Vs Burger: Pulled Pork Burger @ Lot 369

Frazer takes on the pulled pork burger at Lot 369, it’s the return of city-wide burger munching…

Lot 369 – Pulled Pork Burger
Slow cooked pork, covered with homemade BBQ sauce and coleslaw. Served with fries.

Hailing from a city consumed by gourmet burger chains, I’ve grown accustomed to craving pimped-up patties. In this series, I hit the streets of Phnom Penh to sniff out the very best burgers on offer.

The Burger Joint

Visiting on the super popular Wednesdays, due their weekly $1 coffee special, I was lucky to gain a table downstairs at 10:30am. The cafe and bar stayed packed until I left just after 1pm, but it is worth noting that they have more seating upstairs in the air conditioned area. Lot 369 regularly crops up with cool things for us to talk about, and it really is no surprise that it stays consistently popular with locals and expats. Being in the TTP area gives it an instant pull to coffee loving hot-deskers and trendy hipsters alike.

The Burger

They had three options available: a chicken schnitzel burger ($6.5), the pulled pork burger ($5.5) and a veggie burger ($6). Having recently been dining out on multiple veggie burgers, and sampling a pulled mushroom slider at Bong Bonlai, I decided it was time to give the pulled pork option a go. There wasn’t too much descriptive padding with the burger, simply BBQ sauce and coleslaw – giving it room to impress by not raising hopes too high too early.


On The Side

Straight up classic, the burger comes with fries – again, no unnecessary linguistic flourishes. Burger and fries, simple, what could go wrong?

First Impressions

Sucker-punched with a surprise! The innocuous fries turned out to be a mixture of crinkle cut and plain french fries, seasoned with mild Cajun spice and lightly salted; we’re off to a good start. The bun hadn’t been mentioned, but it should have been! A lovely sesame-seeded roll, lightly toasted and not too doughy but fluffy enough to round off the burger. The BBQ sauce seemed to be more of a chutney and was very sweet; it worked well with the ‘slaw and pork flavours but certainly wasn’t the usual smoky flavour synonymous with the oinky treat. The pork itself was delicious, perhaps a tad chewy if you got overexcited and took huge, overzealous mouthfuls (like myself).

The Verdict

It holds up as it is, offering a fair value for money and an enjoyably sweet flavour. Personally, I’d pair it with a dipping sauce to give it extra zing. I tried a chilli sauce, but I would be interested to have a traditional BBQ sauce, too, to complement that chutney flavouring. I’d give the Pulled Pork Burger 7/10 – although admittedly I was super hungry and could easily have told you a higher score if you’d caught me mid-mouthful. Lot 369 offers fair employment opportunities and avoids using harmful products. They believe in the power of businesses to create positive impact for local communities and the environment… so yeah, that’s awesome and you should go.
