Before the gourmet burger craze that seems to be sweeping through Klang Valley, there was Ramly burger.
While many Ramly burger stalls offer the same set of menu with standard beef and chicken patties pairing egg, cheese, and the usual lettuce/cabbage, onion, chili sauce, and mayonnaise, there are some that steps up the game.
One of such places is Burger Bobby Simpang 3.
Burger Bobby Simpang 3
Burger Bobby was started by the man behind the stall some 10 years ago. Located at Lembah Keramat (a few minutes away from Zoo Negara), it is a burger stall with a few tables under a canopy set up in front of the proprietor’s house.
Prosperity Tiesto Single Special Cheese
The menu is pretty extensive for a burger stall, other than the usual beef, chicken, fish burgers and hotdogs, there’s also some messier options such as their “Prosperity” range of Tiesto (lamb) and Lambo (beef) burgers.
Prices for normal burger starts at RM 3.50 for single patty to triple special cheese prosperity Tiesto burger at RM 19.00.
For dinner just before my futsal session at Ampang Sports Planet, I ordered a single special cheese Tiesto burger (RM 9.00).
it’s a messy affair and I loved it
The burger was about twice the size of standard Ramly burger, and at least thrice as messier, a cacophony of lettuce, onion, plenty of chili sauce with a decent sized lamb patty wrapped in fried egg and cheese wedged between sesame bun. It was actually rather delicious.
Good thing that they have a hand washing area by the side. Looks like I’m going to be following my futsal buddies there more often next time.

Ramly burger’s one of the uniquely Malaysian street foods that you can find in every other street corners in this country.
Burger Ramly A & Z at PJ Sea Park
The precise way in preparing a Ramly burger (or any Malaysian style burger for that matter) is very different from it’s Western cousins.
We have it essentially pan fried instead of grilled, we cut the burger patty in two and apply generous amount of wochester sauce and pepper, the burger bun itself is fried on their buttered side, and together with sliced onion & cabbage, an overdose of chili sauce and mayonnaise is added between the buns.
Additionally, for “special” version, egg is fried and wrap up the burger patty, but not before more wochester sauce and pepper is added. You can also have cheese added, or have double patties, the possibilities are endless.
my favorite is danging special (beef with egg)
My usual order of Ramly burger is usually the daging special (beef with egg), and Burger Ramly A&Z serves up one of the better burgers around the area (another favorite would be Wan Burger at SS2).
The stall is located outside 7-11 at PJ Sea Park and operates from evening till late. Burger here is juicy and positively flavorful, with the only problem being that it usually takes a while to get served as the stall is usually rather busy.
Cendawan the bengal approves the taste of this burger!
Other than your usual hotdog, beef and chicken burger, A & Z also serves prawn and fish burger (though I’ve never tried those). A standard beef burger goes for RM 2.30 and the super sized double beef special with cheese costs RM 4.60.
A & Z stands for Amir and Zainal, the two dudes manning this burger van, I assume.
