Om Burger

Recently this short film made by FriedChillies Media won the Best Super Short Film at the NYC Food Film Festival. Titled 'The Sloppiest Burger in Malaysia', it was just a 2 minute thing, showing a Ramli Burger stall, somewhere in Ampang. Go and watch the video; if it can win, it must be good, right?

So, I also went and tried the thing lor. In Ampang Jaya.



It does look sloppy, doesn't it? While there have been claims by some people that this Ramli Burger is the best in the Klang Valley, to be honest, I think it tasted just like any Ramli Burger anywhere. Someone will have to convince me otherwise.

Fogal Meat Market

There is this place, called Fogal Meat Market, in Plaza Damas, which is somewhere in Hartamas, where I got lost at sometime at the beginning of the year when I was trying to get to Bukit Tunku (but that's another story altogether).

So, the place is actually a meat butchery in front, with seats at the back (and some outside the shop at the back and front) which allows the place to double as a restaurant.

There's plenty of blogs reviewing this place, and the impression was that the Lamb Burger was the 'thing-to-have'.


I do hope the Aussie owner of the shop isn't reading this (he seemed like a very nice guy), but unfortunately, this burger was very plain, and, um, forgettable. The meat patty lacked seasoning, and so it was quite plain. The wedges and salad were so-so only. I suppose being slightly sick that day played a part in influencing my taste buds though.

If you cast your eyes to the back of that picture, you see a plate of toast and some scrambled eggs.

This is what it looks like.

And although it looked plain and simple, this was gobbled down by my friend who claimed that it was "sooo goood".

Oh wells. Looks can be deceiving, after all.

To wash it all down, sticky date pudding.

The pudding/cake was too 'room temperature though'. Would be much better had they been warmer.

Yum yum.

Sang Har Meen

So I've been a bit lazy lately. But that doesn't mean I haven't been eating! I had (until this morning) two weeks worth of pictures sitting around in my camera, waiting to be uploaded.

But since I'm still feeling lazy right now, this will be a one picture post.

Last Sunday, Dad brought us to eat Sang Har Meen at this restaurant on Jalan Imbi. Restaurant Weng Choon (Soo Kee's Son), I think it was called. At first, I was a bit hesitant, as I remember having the same thing at this Restaurant Green View somewhere in PJ (Look here for a review of the Sang Har Meen at Green View; no idea who that is, and did not ask for permission to link, so, sorry), and I wasn't too happy with it, and it also cost quite a lot.

That's why I was a bit hesitant.

But this one, was sooo good. So good that its now on my list of 'must eat once everytime I'm back for holiday' foods.

I personally prefer this sauce to the one from Green View. This is not as dark, and perhaps more orangy (in colour, not taste) compared to the other one. And it was huge!

Simply splendid.

p.s. You can compare this with the other 2 seafood noodles I had in Melbourne a couple of months ago.
