"Let's get sloppy..."
When the fast food craving strikes, nothing will curb it quicker than a greasy roadside burger. Once you've given in to the call of processed food, why don't go all the way and tuck into the messiest burger available in KL? When it comes to burgers, Om's are the sloppiest burgers you can find and they're still going strong after 27 years of being in the business. If you don't mind your patties fried in a pool of oil, drenched in margarine and topped with generous amounts of mayo and sauces, then Om is your place. Humble and unpretentious, Om Burger is an ideal supper option if you're looking for a late night grease fest. Just don't tell your doctor or he'll ask you to go for a heart check up. Sinful and loaded with margarine, you know that it's bad for you but it is so delicious that sometimes it's just really hard to resist.
They have fans as far as Singapore so there must be more to their burgers than just a whole amount of grease. A customer even bought 50 Om Burgers to bring to his son who was studying in Bandung! This just shows how famous these burgers are. The friendly 'Om' (which literally means 'uncle' in Indonesian) is the master griller. He helms the grill until 3 am and then his son will take over. The stall is a favourite among denizens of the night because it opens from 8 pm till 5 am every day. You can see how popular these burgers are from the stacks of patties and hot dogs on the side of the grill, ready to be made into burgers for eager customers.
You can't get more decadent than their burger 'Special'. First they crack an egg, spread it out on the grill like a really flat omelette before adding a slice of cheese and finishing it off with the burger patty on top. This grease soaked combo then goes to the final assembly stage where the patty goes on top of a bun with huge squirts of mayo, sauces, a sprinkle of shredded cabbage and then it's wrapped up in paper ready for you to 'tapau'.
Surprisingly their hot dogs are gaining more popularity compared to their burgers. Bigger and longer than most of the other burger stalls in KL, the hot dogs are filled with cheese so when you take a bite it oozes out filling your mouth with salty cheesy creaminess.

"A tasty marriage of kaya and butter...."
The quaint town of Kluang boasts one of the oldest (and probably the best) kopitiams in Southern Malaysia. Located at the local railway station, Kluang Rail Coffee has been around since 1938. It was a pit stop for travellers arriving in Kluang and the railway canteen is one of the town's famous landmark. If you ever find your way at this neck of the woods it would be sacrilege not to stop by.
The toasts here are the 'toast' of the town (pun intended). You can choose from wholemeal, white bread and buns. The buns are the most popular and usually run out first so they were the ones that we ordered. They have a softer texture compared to their white bread counterparts. Fluffy on the inside and charred and smoky on the outside, the buns are a perfect vehicle for any spread. At Kluang Rail Coffee, they're paired with yummy blocks of Cowhead butter and homemade kaya. This is the best version of 'roti kahwin' EVER. 'Roti kahwin' literally means married bread. The term is used to describe the typical Malaysian breakfast sandwich that is a wonderful marriage of kaya (local coconut jam) and butter spread on top of toast. A simple East meets West partnership that has now become a staple in Malaysian households.
