Green Patty Love - Ana Burger @ Kemensah Heights, Kuala Lumpur

ordering burgers can get a little sticky here, as they ask you "nak kawen tak???" (Malay for, "do you want to get married?")

Quirky, is the best word that describes this out-of-the-way place we were first introduced to by the Fried Chillies team. Utterly passionate about street burgers in all shapes and sizes, they're definitely the Indiana Jones of burger hunters, as I would not have ever discovered this small stall tucked inside a housing estate behind the zoo! Surprisingly, we remembered the turns taken in the middle of the pitch black night (we came once with them!) and managed to retrace our steps back to this place without any GPS coordinates. No guesses on who was navigating (it wasn't me!) since he usually has a sixth sense when it comes to tracking his way around.

watching the pro work behind the grill is always fascinating

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.

I don't know why but green lights (at night) always creep me out. I think those typical Chinese horror movies are to blame....
(The burgers look good tho!)

minchow said...

Green apple retains less water than cucumber? What a great discovery!! Or have I just always been common sense compromised?? I'll have to allocate an additional hour to get lost and find way back to the main road for this!

Bangsar-bAbE said...

Jun said...

hehe love ur introspective analogy on burgers and marriages!

boo_licious said...

Allie - true, when things get down, eat this to cheer up.

thenomadgourmand - more for yr burger hunting but don't expect messy burger like OM though as this fella splits his burger.

ciki - go grab bakchangs from LL.

unkaleong - it's quite simple, as it is the only stall in the middle of nowhere!

J - I guess this guy loves "seram" movies too.

550ml - it's probably his own rationale to remain different.

bangsar-babe, taken while he was abt to wrap the burger. He gave me a funny and amused look when I told him, "tunggu, ambil gambar dulu!"

foodbin - marriage always looks good in the beginning?

sc - LOL. I love the grilling by the in laws part!

Jason - yeah, part of the patty love series, I'm starting.

Jun - yup, burgers are very deep stuff too according to this guy.

Ana has moved location due to the completed construction site behind the stall. It is now located at Jalan J taman melawati, you will see a row of stalls just opposite a big masjid. You wont miss it.
