"Size does matter...( when it comes to burgers)"
The Ayam Special is Abang’s signature dish, cracking and splashing the egg onto the grill as he uses the patty to spread the egg, allowing the white pepper and soy sauce to seep into the egg as well, enhancing its flavour two fold. Slightly crispy around the edges but totally juicy on the inside, even my friend who is not a foodie (boo!) and a small eater (double boo!), exclaimed “WOW” the first time she sunk her teeth into this sloppy creation. The Daging Double is a heavyweight contender, extra tender and juicy, perfect for a hungry tummy in the middle of the night.
But the real beauty came just a few months ago to Abang’s burger place when he unleashed his mammoth creation. Dubbed the Monster Burger X, it had all my favourite words (Monster and X) and everything I could wish for in a burger. Everyone can easily recognize the Monster Burger, simply because it is what it is…a monster of a burger. Nearly twice in width and length of a normal Ramly burger patty, the Monster Burger combines the taste of a gourmet burger, delicate and refined, with the smokey tones of an excellent street grilled burger. The patty has an altogether different taste which you will have to try for yourself.
Monster Burger has twice as much 'sayur', twice as much as sauce and definitely twice as much bite, because it can easily replace a meal. You can have the Monster done in any way you want as well, be it special, cheese or special cheese. The patty is so big that for the 'Special' version, Abang actually needs to use 2 eggs. The patty has a genuine beef taste and way juicier compared to the-run-off-the-mill Ramly burger. If you are a monster, you can opt for a double Monster, which is only RM13, still affordable compared to other burger stalls.
Many of my friends have tried Abang’s new creation the Monster Burger, and all of them have the same to say, it is better than most burgers they have tasted. One even compared it against a (currently) very popular burger bakar and said it came nowhere close to the Monster, both in taste and price-wise.
Pull these babies hot out of the oven and your guests will love you. It tears apart at a gentle fondle revealing a centre that is soft and beautifully fluffy. Butter and gravy will melt into it but if you prefer it sweet, it’s just as delicious with jam. More »

1. Kak Laily Nasi Ayam Original, Subang Jaya One of Kak Laily's trusted sellers and her rows of chicken ready for customers
It's no surprise that chicken rice holds the No. 1 spot on our list. We loove chicken, not only because it's tasty but also due to its affordability and availability.
