OM Burger, Ampang Jaya

After The Burger Shop, I’ve decided to try a burger a week for the month of March. Last week, rif decided we would go all the way to Ampang for the ultimate, mind-blowing, OM Burger.The pakcik has been running this stall at the same spot in Ampang Jaya (in front of 7-11) for 24 years. The stall is older than me! @[email protected] He opens as early as 8pm till 5am daily. At 11.30pm, there were quite a few people waiting for their dose of greasy goodness. So I waited…for half an hour. Within that time, pakcik spoke to me about his burgers. He uses quality ingredients, especially the butter and mayonnaise. One of the key factors to making a damn good burger. He uses Kraft cheese for his burgers and makes an average of 250โ€“300 burgers a day. For those who are curious, OM stands for uncle in Javanese – according to pakcik.Jeen was full from dinner, so she had a burger ayam. rif and I ate big – 2 Ayam Special and 1 Hotdog Special to share (for supper mind you!). Halfway waiting, more people came and ordered. Clearly, this is one highly sought after burger.My Ayam Special was deliciously sloppy. Greasy and oozing with juices, cheese, mayonnaise and chili sauce, I was in burger heaven. The hotdog was equally as good (pardon the bad picture, I took it in the midst of darkness). I had trouble taking a bite without everything smearing at the sides on my mouth, and nose! It’s best not to wear white. =P If youโ€™re a Ramly burger fan, go try the OM Burger. Iโ€™ve been eating this for almost 6 years. And rif has been eating this way longer than I have – more than 10 years if Iโ€™m not mistaken!

Price: 8/10
Taste: 9/10
Verdict: By far THE BEST BURGER I’ve had.

Lorong Kolam Air Lama 1

    I know where I’m going on my next holiday! These look insanely good. A bit on the unhealthy side, maybe, but who cares! My mouth is already trembling with anticipation. Great photos!

  17. Bangsar-bAbE

    Insanely unhealthy, but oh-so-divine! You should have seen the amount of butter he used. My eyes nearly popped out!!

    Its quite amazing that Malays have fallen head over heels with Americanised Burgers ! Ramly singlehandedly gave the kids a little business to start with and now many Malay youngsters ( under 10 )think burger is Malay cuisine ! But yes , many Malaysians think our roadside burger is better than the clinical offerings from McKentKingWend , yes ?

  19. Bangsar-bAbE

    Influence from the West I guess…but I didn’t know Malay kids think burger is Malay cuisine!! Oh dear… @[email protected]

    Oh definitely! =D

    Hiya there! Been haunting your space for a while but never said anything before ๐Ÿ™‚ Have to say, despite living less than 5 minutes away from this OM Burger, have never had an inclination to try. Just realised that I haven't seen a review on another Ampang eating establishment – Nong and Jimmy's. Given your love of seafood, I would be v surprised if you haven't been (I hope I overlooked it!) If you haven't, let me know and I'd be more than happy to introduce you to their Tomyam and BBQed seafood!

    Bangsar Babe – Is the address that you given is correct? Is it under Lorong Kolam Air Lama 1ย ?
    Cause according to the GPS is Lorong Kerja Ayer Lama, Ukay Heights.

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Hi Leong,

      Yup, it’s correct. This address was given to me by Bob himself. It’s his home address as he operates just outside the gate. ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Leong

    Bangsar Babe-Sorry for question you that question? If I ask anything wrong, please forgive me.
    Thank you.
