Malaysian Street Food: Ramly Burger, Murtabak, and Roti John

Malaysia is home to a huge array of tasty sweet and savoury street food options. From the deeply flavoursome Satay to the tangy Rojak, and the 'nations favourite' smoky Char Kway Teow to the unique Durian (all quick to make and easy on your wallet), trying a taste of Malaysia is easier than ever before, so why not treat yourself today? We have chosen three of the best Malaysian street foods to make your mouth water.

Ramly Burger

Ramly Burger

 

The Ramly burger is one of the most popular Malaysian street food offerings. The look of this burger is mouth-watering - an omelette- and cheese-wrapped patty drenched in soy and chilli sauce, drizzled with mayonnaise, stacked inside with shredded cabbage, and held together by two buns. It is no wonder that fans of the burger queue up to purchase this scrumptious offering.

The burger is a must for anyone craving a sloppy, oozing with goodness, succulent treat. Every single bite will leave you wanting more!

Murtabak

Murtabak

 

Murtabak - meaning folded in Arabic - is a Malaysian family favourite. Simplicity describes the visual presentation of this dish well - a tasty concoction of rich, juicy chicken, yummy vegetables, egg, and herbs stacked between fluffy folded flatbread. This dish has its origins in Yemen, although it is hugely popular in the Malaysian street food market.

This crispy, meaty pancake is a must for anyone new to traditional Malaysian street food. Its flavourful, rich fillings are the ultimate treat.

Roti John

Roti John

 

The best way to describe Roti John is soft baguette bread filled with eggs, cheese, onions, meat - take your pick from mutton, chicken, or beef - drizzled in sambal sauce. Its origins trace back to Singapore in the 1960s when an Englishman asked for a hamburger to hawker, although it took 10 more years before the sandwich started to gain some popularity as a street food go-to.

Best served with a side of salad, this Malaysian street food favourite is simple yet delicious.
