The rise of gourmet burger brands in the recent years is a good thing because it offers more options for city dwellers. But sometimes all you want is to chow down a burger that won’t cost around 20 bucks. You don’t need the burger to be made with 100% Australian grain fed beef, organic lettuce, homemade secret sauces and served sandwiched in a charcoal bun.
In Gombak, there exists a burger stall that outsells McDonald’s just across the street and it’s called Daily Burger. From what I see, they have been around for quite some time and have built up a loyal customer base who just kept on coming. As we were waiting, the queue never seemed to dwindle even a bit!
Options are aplenty and you can get a basic burger for as cheap as RM2.80. Even the most elaborate burger that comes with double patty and all the works clocks in at only RM5 – that’s cheaper than what a plate of noodle costs nowadays.
Besides the usual Ramly chicken and beef burgers, there are also a handful of not-so-common choices of patty such as rusa (deer), arnab (rabbit) and kambing (lamb); albeit slightly pricier by a ringgit or two.
With orders flooding in from all directions, it’s impressive that the worker manning the frying pan is able to memorize them while flipping the burgers and frying eggs at the same time. It’s a flurry of action and there’s no less than 10 patties being cooked at any given moment.
My Rusa Cheese Special @ RM5. Notice how the patty is not being wrapped in the fried egg? Instead, each egg is split into two separate frying rings then used to sandwich the patty in between. I think this is done simply to save time in order to complete the orders more efficiently.
SL’s Ayam Cheese Special @ RM4, which surprisingly had a slice of pineapple in it too. Both burgers are kind of sloppy as expected, but not messy to eat because the amount of sauces given are just nice.
As for the taste, all I can say is it’s a very well done Ramly burger hitting all the right spots. Everything about it was good and there’s just nothing that I’d complain about a burger that costs only a few ringgit.
