Ramly Burger

Last night as we had to run some errands, we had a quickie dinner at the Ramly burger stall. These burgers are Malaysian made and extremely popular at night as the burgers taste so much nicer than McDonalds, it's locally made (so support Malaysian brands!) and it's cheaper than the fast food joints. It seems it's so popular in Singapore that a newspaper article did a feature on it where it's fans confessed to smuggling the burgers across the Causeway at the risk of being caught.

Not only do the Singaporeans love Ramly's it seems quite a lot of people do also. Their turnover for their processed food sales that includes the beef patties, frankfurters and nuggets sold to the burger stall owners and the supermarkets was an estimated RM60million last year. Not bad for a company that started out in 1979 just as a mobile kiosk selling these burgers.

Back to our burgers, we ordered the specials that includes beef patties wrapped in an egg omelette. Here you can see the guy cooking the patties and the specials at one side. You crack an egg and spread it thinly on the grill. The beef patty is placed inside the egg and wrapped up.

Once it's cooked, it's time to assemble the burger, so a double will have the egg covered patty, some sliced cucumbers and another beef patty on top of a soft bread bun. They will add loads of mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce on top of the burger.

Then it's all wrapped up in Ramly paper that shows it's halal and approved by the Veterinary Services in Malaysia.
Try and eat these burgers as soon as possible as it can get soggy with all the mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce they add on.

This reminds me of the Ramly burgers we had to buy and smuggle across the Causeway for J's brother and sis-in-law! Another Sporean friend of mine told me how they ate it at every rest stop they came to on their way to Redang! haha...I like the one with black pepper sauce!

ahaha that is evil! i am craving for one now ;-) the egg-wrapped ones are definitely special and some have you ever got ones with julienned carrots? that sort of gives it an extra kick!

boo,

Wow!! The pictures look so good! Ramly burgers are really nice. Prefer them to the more commercial fast food outlet ones.

Cheers,

joe - yeah, the burger is pretty unique especially the specials.

sue&eternity - so, the article is absolutely correct, people smuggle it in!

5xmom - I think they smeared a bit of butter on top.

q - wow, I never had ones with carrots. Must have been a special stall you went to.

makan king - the guy running the stall gave me a weird look when I said I want to take pictures.

gwenda - do come to Msia, then you get to eat the real Ramly and lots of other great food.

ddonkey - Ah, I know stall you're talking about in ss3. This burger is from a posh area, damansara heights at pusat bandar damansara. Sometimes, you see nice posh cars drive up to buy a burger too.

omg - a burger wrapped in a fried egg?!?! BRILLIANT! at fatburger (what a name, huh?) here in l.a., they slap a fried egg on top, but wrapping the patty up seems so much...i don't know...naughtier. lol!

dDonkey said...

wahlau..high class ramli burger.. :)
first time i've heard of it..hehe. :P
yeah,the one in SS3..its good. :)
can fight with the one at Seapark. :)

boo_licious said...

sarah - Somehow when you wrap it in the egg, it tastes better than just a fried egg on top.

ddonkey - where in seapark? sounds good, must go and try one day.

dDonkey said...

hmmm,you know the KFC in Seapark? on the left is the cross-road with traffic lights? there's a public bank and opposite the public bank is a 7-11. :)
in front of the 7-11 is the burger stall. :) can fight with the one in SS3. :) they don't open on sundays though. :)
