 | October 17, 2017

A Malaysian, who runs a food stand in the city is introducing the tasty spiced-up burger to New Yorkers.

burger-ramlyKUALA LUMPUR: The popular Ramly burger is going places – all across the globe to New York City, to be exact.

The people who run The Malaysian Project, a food stand based in Queens in the Big Apple, have been introducing the burger to New Yorkers as a street snack at various festivals.

“Back home, we usually call it Ramly Burger, but here we call it the Malaysian-style burger,” The Malaysian Project owner Calvin Leong said in a video report posted on the INSIDER food Facebook page yesterday.

Undergoing a makeover of sorts, the Ramly Burger sold in New York is encased in a fried egg as it is sometimes here, but the seasonings are totally different.

Catering to the tastebuds of New Yorkers, the Ramly Burger is liberally seasoned with spicy mayo and Worcestershire sauce for an added kick.

“It’s spicy. It’s savoury. Loaded with a bunch of seasonings, umami flavour, condensed, packed. I had this burger when I was a little kid.

“We had it everywhere around the roadside back home in Malaysia,” said Leong.

Marketed as the perfect complement to the spicy Ramly Burger is a refreshing homemade soursop juice, called “Malaysian sensation #1” by The Malaysian Project team.

Also available at the food stand is another Malaysian favourite – the humble kaya toast, this time upscaled and given the glamorous name of “toasted challah bread with coconut and pandan custard”.

Considering the novelty of these snacks, the Malaysian-style burger is priced at US$12 (RM51), the kaya toast at US$6 and the soursop juice at US$4.

Now that’s one hearty meal New Yorkers won’t forget anytime soon.
