Ramly Burger

Whenever my nephew visits from neighbouring Singapore, he always requests for a Ramly Burger. A classic Malaysian street food, the Ramly Burger is a huge favourite with the locals and Singaporeans.
Essentially, the Ramly Burger is just an egg-wrapped burger but the way the burger guy makes it is kinda fascinating.
First, the meat patty is butterflied, squirted with sauces and then joined back up. Next, an egg is cracked onto the griddle and spread out evenly and thinly. The patty is then drenched with more sauces and folded with the egg like a parcel! An ingenious way of containing the sauces, don't you think? Before the burger is wrapped up, the 'parcel' is then placed on a buttered bun, topped with shredded cabbage and slivers of onions followed by more liberal squirts of mayo, Maggi Seasoning and chili sauce. Sloppy, greasy, unhealthy and overloaded with sauces but totally worth it!

Here's how it's done.


Interestingly, did you know that Ramly Burgers are banned in Singapore due to concerns over the low quality meat? This makes the forbidden burgers even more desirable and enterprising Singaporean street vendors have even resorted to selling burgers with their own patties in the clever disguise of Ramly's trademark burger wrappers!
Nice! But it's the Ramly patties that are the heart and soul of this unique Malaysian burger. I was told that vendors risk jail and fine and even their trade license just to smuggle the frozen patties into their country!

So why is it called the Ramly Burger?

Founder Ramly Bin Mokni created the burger  in 1979. The couple initially sold burgers at a mobile kiosk in Kuala Lumpur. When their burgers gained popularity,  they subsequently sold their unique patties, along with the egg-wrapping technique to other street vendors. The vendors named the burger after their supplier.
Five years later, the couple opened their first factory when their homegrown business expanded.

Today, Ramly is the brand name of Ramly's frozen and fast food supplies company.


Operating only at night and usually run by young people with daytime jobs,  Ramly Burger stands can be found everywhere and in every neighbourhood. You can be certain there is always one in front of  a 7-Eleven store.

Good news for New Yorkers! Our famous egg-wrapped burgers are now selling in Queens!


Have you tried a Ramly Burger? Would you?

Wow. I love how they are a favorite in your country. Are they good? Do you like to eat them? I think the egg would make it really filling.

These look delicious, but definitely laden with calories! I would have to try just a bit of one though just to experience how tasty it could be!

Vegetarian here, but my three oldest kids would try and probably love these burgers!

alissa apel said...

Oh goodness I want to try one! I think it looks so good!

I can tell you one person in my family that wouldn't like it: Mica. He'll eat almost anything, but frowns when it comes to eggs. We make him eat them anyhow, but it's always the last thing he'll eat.
