It’s been a while since I explored and found a new burger place. My last discovery was Bob Burger, which I blogged and vlogged about. Since then, I’ve been going to my favourites – Bob, OM & Brother John. A reader recently suggested that I try his favourite Ramly burger place (he recommended the mutton burger and beef burger) in Pandan Jaya, and attached a map for easier navigation. We found the stall pretty easily; it is located outside 7-11 in Pandan Jaya. Most of the Ramly burger stall owners I’ve met were friendly, but this guy was pretty reserved. It was difficult striking up a conversation with him. I only got to find out how long he’s been selling burgers – 30 years. And that they are closed on Saturdays. I ordered a mutton special cheese (RM4.70) and chicken special cheese (RM4) for comparison. The patties are butterflied, and seasoned with Worchester sauce and black pepper. They are then, placed on the egg omelette, topped with dashes of Worchester sauce, black pepper and chilli sauce. He wraps the omelette over the patty differently. Three sides are folded in, and he places the slice of cheese on top. He then adds a spread of Thousand Island dressing on the cheese before sealing in the patty.The vegetables were pretty standard, comprising lettuce, cucumber slices, tomatoes and onion slices. Less sauces were used to prepare the burger, compared to Bob and OM. For those who can’t stand the greasy, super sinful OM Burger or the ever-sloppy Bob Burger, you might like this. I like my burgers sloppy and rich, so this one didn’t really hit the spot.
Both the patties were slightly dry and the lack of sauces didn’t help rectify the problem. Between the two, I thought the mutton patty was nicer, but it lacked a certain kick. I thought it could do with much more pepper, and maybe some black pepper sauce. The seasoning was too plain. While I didn’t find the burgers great, they were decent. It really is a matter of preference. Like I said, I like my burgers rich. If you’re not one who’s big on greasy goodness, you might like this.
Mutton Burger: 5.5/10
Chicken Burger: 5/10
Verdict: If you like your street burgers less sloppy, you would probably enjoy the burgers more than I did.
