The sinful burger
My mom calls this the sinful burger. For obvious reasons anyway, because the ingredients are all very fattening and salty and high in cholesterol... but wait! It tastes awesome! Taste of the lifetime.
The sauce and the patty (which I always choose beef) and the unique blend of flavors, with egg, margarine and mayonaise, all of which fattening but gives huge satisfaction to your tastebuds. You will never regret buying a Ramly.
The prices are affordable, and since I got mine at the Yong Peng rest stop, which is notoriously overpriced, at around RM8 or so, the prices are very good. Furthermore, what a savoury meal this brings, although I have to ding it for the unhealthiness.
Tasty Malaysian Burger
Ramly Burger is a Malaysian burger brand, named after creator Ramly Moknin. However, Ramly Burger also refers to the unique style of preparing this burger, in which the meat patty and condiments are wrapped in a thin layer of egg, resulting in a neat packet, which is then served on vegetables between the burger buns.
There are various types of meat patty that could be used for a Ramly Burger, by far the most popular is chicken or beef. There are also Ramly Burger patty made from fish, lamb or prawn. The patty is grilled in magarine, topped with cheese, tomato ketchup, mayonnaise, worcestershire sauce and curry powder, then wrapped in a thin layer of egg into a neat packet, like an omelette.
The packet is then placed on a bed of cucumbers, onions, tomatoes and cabbage, and sandwiched by lightly grilled burger buns. A Ramly Burger served in this manner is known as a 'Ramly Burger Special'; has a more pleasant texture than a regular burger, and is less messy when consumed.
Ramly Burger is usually sold in street side kiosks, and can be found in most Malaysian towns or rest stops. It's more uncommon in large cities and small villages.
Due to its popularity, Ramly Burger is also imported in Singapore, albeit with a few modifications to the patty to meet Singaporean safety standards. As such, while the preparation of Ramly Burger in Singapore is the same, the taste usually differs quite greatly from the Malaysia counterpart.
Great, easy, affordable
One of the best burgers I've tasted is the one closest to home. That's right, the simple yet magnificent Ramly never disappoints a person with a hungry stomach. I live in Labuan and there's a road side hawker stall selling one of these babies which is still my number one destination whenever I am craving for a filling and delicious meal.
The stall prepares it's food in a very simple manner. 2 breads dipped with eggs and butter, 2 pieces of chicken or beef patties, an egg, a slice of cheese and finally, a special sauce that the guy made by himself. It's like heaven in my mouth. The flavor the meet is greatly enhanced by the sauce. A little spicy and sweet, with a hint of barbecue sauce and just a dash of mint sauce. It's not a mystery why this hawker stall still remains in business after a few years. Speaking of cost, it's way cheaper than something that you would get from McDonald. At RM6 for a double patty, I think it's a better and tastier option.
Ramli Burgers, Ramli Burgers Everywhere.
Ramli Burger is the infamous brand that you get to see pretty much everywhere in Malaysia. You'll see it being sold in supermarkets as frozen meat patties or on the roadside where people make these burgers to be sold to customers. I've indulged myself in countless amount of Ramli Burgers at home as well local hawkers.
Depending on the location, the hawkers can make pretty delicious burgers with these. In particular, there's one in Kelana Jaya, right in front Glomac SS6, that makes this wonderful burger that is dipped in black pepper sauce. It is just delicious. In fact, the place even made it to the Top 5 Local Burger Stalls on Star Newspaper. It normally costs between RM3-6 depending on what you ask for but it sure is worth it.
Malaysia's gift to the world
2 burger buns lightly buttered and toasted lightly, a thick and juicy chicken patty sliced almost in half and split open and fried till dark brown, then barbecue sauce and mayonnaise poured on the patty. To add to it all, an egg is fried, and the patty is wrapped in it, giving it an extra oomph. Add a bit of chilli sauce and wrap the whole burger in a wrapper and it's all mine!
I've watch this process hundreds of times in my life, and gosh I don't think I will ever get tired of seeing the way Ramly Burger is prepared. Malaysia's gift to the world, is what I'd call it.
Burger Ayam Special with cheese
Typical supper especially you are walking in pasar malam. Normally I can buy burger impulsively. Around where I’m staying right now, I have about 7-8 burger stalls and a few is within walking distance from my apartment. You simply can not resist the simple and economic supper. It is warm, small portion and it has all nutrition that you need. You may ignore the nutrition part but it still a great supper. Although the patty is not thick and juicy, most of the time you get very dry patty. With the price averaging RM3-RM4, I think that is the reason McDonald will not have McSupper. :D
Heaven with every bite...
I can never resist buying a ramly burger whenever I manage to chance upon a stall, be it from an ongoing pasar malam or in NYP during bazaars being held at the atrium. Sure, it's a little pricey, about $3 - $4 for one burger, but the fact that I hardly get to eat this delicacy makes it completely worth it!
They have a range of flavours, and I've tried almost every flavour already, and my favourite would be the beef flavour, just cause I love beef. Within the burger, other ingredients like their sauce, oh yes, the tasty sauce that gives a nice kick with every bite, and egg makes the burger so mouth-watering.
The only complaint I would have to give for Ramly Burger would be that the stalls set up at pasar malams tend to take a long time to cook your burger, but hey, I guess that's the price of eating something so great. After all, the cook starts from scratch, and I just love seeing the stunts being performed such as tossing the sauce bottles, something to entertain us while waiting, and also signifying the soon-to-be-ready burger to enter our hands, and then mouths! Expect long queues as well, as the Ramly Burger is just such a hot choice, but it will be worth the wait!
I feel that everyone should at least try the Ramly Burger at least once in their lives. Even if you don't like it, at least you got to experience it, but I don't see why anyone wouldn't like this scrumptious burger, unless you are on a diet, I guess...
Midnight snack that will fill me up.
I know late-night snacking is a bad habit, but sometimes it is really hard to avoid.
Normally I will drive out to buy myself heavier food like burger only if cookies or milk is not enough. It is very convenient for us to get Ramly burger in Malaysia as Ramly burger stalls can be found nearly everywhere, and they usually open till late night.
The patty may not be as thick and juicy but I think the Maggie sauce is what makes it so special. I especially like their egg banjo. To me, the price is still acceptable. Unless McDonald’s launches McValue Supper, then I will definitely go for McChicken for the sake of the extra fries!
