Ramly Burger

Malaysia / Penang

You heard of fish burger, double cheeseburger, ham burger, chicken burger…how about Ramly burger? Malaysians and most Singaporeans surely heard of it and even tasted it. Fellow Malaysians, if you never heard of Ramly burger before, don’t tell me you are a Malaysian. XD

I was in Penang and bought a “Ramly Burger Special” from this popular Ramly Burger stall known as Din Corner. A customer saw me taking photos at the stall and jokingly commented that I was from The Star (newspaper). XD

Steps on how to make a “Ramly Burger Special”. The patty is first wrapped in a thin layer of egg before stacking other ingredients like onions, margarine, cabbage, mayonnaise within the buns.

Din Corner is a neat and decent-looking stall located along the roadside, dunno which road but I know it is in Penang. =P

Speak so much of Ramly Burger and yet nearly forgot to take a pic of it to show how the end result looks like. Ignore the teeth impressions on the half-eaten burger! This burger tastes better than burgers from KFC, Mac and Burger King! Sedap!

Many Singaporeans like Ramly burgers but strangely, we could hardly see a Ramly stall in Singapore, except in pasar malams. I just read from Wikipedia that the import of Ramly Burger to Singapore is prohibited. Only frozen Ramly Burger patties are approved for sale, and yes, I see that in supermarkets in Singapore, and tempted to buy some. =D

  • eunice said on November 3, 2008 6:27 pm

    @Zara: Haha! I miss out a few ingredients like shallots cos I don’t have any at home. Anyway I added margarine, black pepper, five spices sauce and soya sauce. Gonna fry the mashed potato balls in egg white. Think should be quite tasty. I love potato! XD

  • Forever HL said on November 3, 2008 7:40 pm

    lol…yea Ramly burger…
    so can I say I am a M’sian?


  • Mei Wah said on November 3, 2008 8:20 pm

    yeah, ramly burger is the best!
    (but have to depend on which stall lah…)
    eh, ramly burger is prohibited in spore?
    you know the reason why?
    i am curious~

  • Zara said on November 3, 2008 8:50 pm


    how come missed those ingredients?

    but I bet must be delicious lor~


    I saw the “abang” who make the Ramly Burger in my cafe just now…

    I think I want to buy it…but since already ordered other, will buy it tomorrow.


  • Tianhong said on November 3, 2008 9:13 pm

    yes yes… but its soooo unhealthy, sooo oily… but guess can do it once a month or so :p

  • eunice said on November 3, 2008 9:29 pm

    @蕾蕾~: LOL!! Yeah lah I know you Malaysian!! XD

    @Meiwah: Right! To me, Ramly burger is supposed to be better than McD n KFC burgers but it depends on which Ramly stall is good! This shows why McDonald n KFC have successful franchising system; their food tastes the same everywhere! LOL!!

    @Zara: I don’t have those ingredients at home now that’s why. Taste not bad lah, but I don’t think I will cook my version of begedil again. It’s oily! Fat fat.

    Hmm.. I don’t know why I don’t see Ramly stalls in Singapore except in pasar malam, and usually those burgers are not nice. So, I can only eat Ramly burger in Malaysia. Sob sob.

    @Tianhong: agree with you. It’s very oily.

  • dong ho said on November 3, 2008 10:31 pm

    can somebody bring it to the philippines? hehehe… i think i really need to find it when i visit singapore. looks good. ill check the article about it in wikipedia.

    those captions made me laugh.

  • friendz said on November 3, 2008 11:33 pm

    i wish u will return the favor

  • JH said on November 4, 2008 12:33 am

    I love this burger ! Very tasty !

    For Singapore, we should see it during local pasar malam (translated as night market), always tempted to buy & eat a Ramly Burger everything I walked pass them.

    Makes me hungry !


  • alex said on November 4, 2008 8:40 am

    wow that’s a new type of burger to me ^^

    looks yum!

  • TNH said on November 4, 2008 8:50 am

    well…what to say..erm…thier burger really not bad even you compare with Mc D, Burger king and others..haha..i do eat sometimes but not frequently..if compare…i think i visit Mc D more than i eat Ramly burger..haha…why, because i hardly find one around my area..

  • Jenny said on November 4, 2008 9:45 am

    You’re making me hungry with those pics!

  • eunice said on November 4, 2008 10:04 am

    @JH: Somehow I don’t buy Ramly burger from pasar malam in Singapore. They are more expensive and don’t look good. =P I hope to see a proper stall selling Ramly burgers instead. ^^ But seems like it’s prohibited in Singapore, accordingly to Wiki. Strange.

    @Dong ho: LOL! Try making one at home! =P

    @Alex: Really? I think what makes it special is the patty is wrapped in a fried egg. It’s nice! Er.. you can try it at home? =P

    @TNH: Right, we see more McD around. Not all Ramly stalls make tasty burgers. But the one at Din corner is nice.

    @Jenny: I am hungry too. XD

  • edelweiza said on November 4, 2008 10:23 am

    your ramly burger looks delish…want some! :)

  • peteformation said on November 4, 2008 11:08 am

    Wonder why it is prohibited from being sold in Spore?

  • eunice said on November 4, 2008 11:21 am

    @edelweiza: okok =D

    @peteformation: No idea. That’s what I read about the controversy in wikipedia. It’s true that I don’t see any Ramly stall in Singapore, but in the recent years I see Ramly burgers sold in pasar malam only.

  • chris said on November 4, 2008 4:52 pm

    WOW! Looks yum! So you just wrap it in egg but its still meat right? Like beef or lamb or pork? What kind of meat is it? And why’s it called RamLy?

  • eunice said on November 4, 2008 6:10 pm

    @Chris: The patty can be beef, chicken, lamb (not sure), no pork cos it’s halal. I think Ramly is the name of the guy who created this burger. =D

  • chris said on November 4, 2008 7:22 pm

    Wow thanks for the info eunice! Hope you get to post more stuff about food! :)

  • lz said on November 4, 2008 7:29 pm

    Wow? did you actually stood beside the stall to snap all these?

    It’s really a good advertisement for him! XD

  • eunice said on November 4, 2008 7:54 pm

    @chris: sure sure! XD There are more to come!

    @Lz: Yeah man. But no one pays me for that. =(

  • Coolingsky said on November 4, 2008 10:08 pm

    I’ve heard of Ramly burger before, but I’ve never tasted it before! =(

  • eunice said on November 4, 2008 11:23 pm

    @coolingsky: oh but u live in Malaysia right? Doesn’t matter. XD

  • Bridge said on November 5, 2008 8:25 am

    Was there any beef burger on this one? I didn’t read any meat at all.. Haha! In the province where I live, I use to make burger without beef at all by using the heart of the banana tree, onions, salt, pepper, egg, and other ingredients. There are several ways to make burger actually. But yeah, I never heard of Ramley Burger before.

    OH about the Liao… Yeah, I hope I used it the right way ;)

  • eunice said on November 5, 2008 9:54 am

    @Bridge: The patties are shown in the pics actually. They are thin slices of chicken meat. There are beef patties too. Ramly is highly customizable.

    Yes u used liao correctly. LOL XD

  • dong ho said on November 5, 2008 10:31 am

    hahaha… ok. ill do. i really need to try this but im not sure it will taste the same.

  • lakshmi said on November 5, 2008 10:52 am

    being a veggie, my burgers are not that exotic..been to penang a long while ago and its a great place

  • eunice said on November 5, 2008 11:17 am

    @dong ho: haha let your creativity flow!

    @lakshmi: Then we will have veggie burgers! =D

  • Borneo Falcon said on November 5, 2008 3:27 pm

    Ramly Burger definitely make some of the tastiest burger. Been a while now since I last see their stalls around

  • salingPUSA said on November 5, 2008 4:58 pm

    why is the import of Ramly Burger to Singapore is prohibited Eunice?

  • eunice said on November 5, 2008 6:26 pm

    @Borneo Falcon: Ha! yeah but depend on which Ramly stalls. Not all are nice.

    @salingPUSA: Good question. I dunno! =P

  • dede said on November 8, 2008 9:50 am

    Morning 1000x,..oh ho,..burger?…make me hungry…better a take a cup of coffee now from the bar? and have some breakfast lol….

  • Shelyn said on November 10, 2008 11:14 pm

    Never think of someone would blog about Ramly burger. It’s just too common here in M’sia that nobody bother to blog about it.

    But I have to admit that Ramly burger is indeed delicious.

    How often do you visit M’sia, Eunice?

    BTW, can we exchange link, Eunice?

  • finaz said on March 3, 2009 5:13 pm

  • Sheikh Zakir said on July 27, 2009 4:15 am

  • Mr Whattaworld said on August 31, 2009 2:46 pm

    A colleague brought Ramly Burger which she said she got it here in Singapore. It tasted good but I heard the ones in Malaysia tasted even better.

    Better try one, the next time I visit Malaysia… :D

  • chopinandmysaucepan said on July 31, 2011 6:50 am

    Hi Eunice, this is one of my fave burgers everytime I go to KL. Thanks for bringing back some memories.

  • James said on December 11, 2011 11:43 pm

    Hi Eunice,

    Lovely pictures. I bought a authentic Ramly Fish Burger from the Supermarket in Singapore & whipped up a burger for myself by pan frying the patty, adding some lettuce, two slices of tomato and some mayonnaisse, chilli sauce & a slight hint of BBQ sauce. It turned out delicious …..!!!

    However the authentic Beef/Chicken only can get in Malaysia.
