ordering burgers can get a little sticky here, as they ask you "nak kawen tak???" (Malay for, "do you want to get married?")
Green seems to rule at this stall! You have a green fluorescent light brightening and casting an eerie hue all around it. Then, unlike the other Ramly places in town, this fella adds a slice of green apple and shredded cabbage on his burgers. Seems the grill master decided adding cucumber and tomatoes will be too watery hence he switched to green apple. The addition of the fruit adds a freshness to the burger but it would have been even better, if more slices were given though.
so satisfied! even though the wait is a little long
The fun does not stop there either, as the stall owner has a type of burger called Kawen (Malay for married) where you get to mix 2 types of burgers - the chicken and beef patties. While it is nothing special in terms of taste, the guy behind the grill obviously gets a kick of asking girls, "you nak kawen tak? berapa kali you nak kawen?" (Malay for "do you want to get married? how many times you want to marry?") Needless to say, I took the plunge and "got married" here!
While you're waiting for your burger, just observe how he makes the burgers - splits them in the middle to grill them thoroughly, spreads French's mustard over it, adds a dash of Lea & Perrins sauce and a generous sprinkle of black pepper before removing them to be sandwiched between grilled buns. One bite of it will definitely send you to patty heaven and who knows, maybe this is what marriage is all about - a little grilling on the hot stove by the potential in-laws, a dash of love & romance and a sprinkle of patience, faith & trust to seal everything together.
