What is sinful but glorious at the same time? Spicy and sweet, juicy and meaty all in one single bite? Can be wIth or without an egg and has single or double patties?
That’s right, it’s none other than the Ramly burger! Like, duh.
Malaysians are absolutely obsessed with Ramly burgers when it comes to getting a late night snack, so much so that it has become a part of Malaysian culture too!
But with so many vendors claiming to sell the “best” Ramly burger, which ones are legit?
Here, we’ve listed 5 of the best Ramly burgers in KL and PJ so that you don’t have to!
You know a Ramly burger is pretty darn good when it’s served to you as a sloppy mess.
Brader John does exactly that with its oozing special sauce and squished up buns, along with vegetables and larger-than-life sized patties wrapped in egg bursting at the seams.
Variety is also the name of the game here, where burgers come in multiple forms such as double cheese, special cheese, double special cheese…you name it, they got it!
While long queues often discourage most people, we Malaysians know that good food is worth waiting for. After all, John himself promised that his special sauce is one not to forget. *wink wink*
The basic burger is only RM4 but if you get the MASTER Lamb Burger which has 2 patties, 2 portions of cheese and an egg, expect to pay a hefty RM16.

This is another OG to visit if you are looking for the ultimate sinful Ramly burger.
OM Burger has been around for more than 25 years, where it’s located in front of a 7-11 store in Ampang Jaya.
According to the owner, OM Burger makes about 250-300 burgers a day, a testament of how popular it is among locals.
If you’re wondering how it’s managed to stay so popular for so long, it’s thanks to the high quality butter and mayo sauce used in making the burgers.
As for the name, OM actually means “Uncle” in Javanese. Quite apt for the uncle who has been serving Malaysians over the years.
Opening Hours: Daily from 6:30pm-1am, Tuesdays and Wednesdays to 11:30pm
Address: 7-11, Jalan Ayer Kerja Lama, Ukay Heights, 68000 Ampang, Selangor
Gerai Burger Dan Nasi Lemak Utara
Apparently, this place has been around since the 1980s, possibly older than you reading this right now.
Aside from their famed nasi lemak, Gerai Burger Dan Nasi Lemak Utara is also famous for their burgers packed with veggies, meat and a special home made sauce.
Many also recommend adding cheese and mustard to get the real deal.
In comparison to other popular burger stalls, you won’t need to wait too long for your order here since the prep and cooking time is relatively faster.
Opening Hours: Tuesdays to Fridays from 5pm-12am, Closed from Saturdays to Mondays

Burger Bobby Simpang
Some might argue that this place isn’t the best but in terms of sloppiness, Burger Bobby wins it hands down.
Grease and sauce ooze from all ends of the burger, leaving your fingers sticky and face usually smothered with sauce.
Be sure to get your hands on their Lamb Tiesto which is guaranteed to leave you hankering for more.
Unlike most Ramly burger joints, Burger Bobby offers ample indoor and outdoor seating.
