The moment a piping hot Ramly burger arrives in my hands, straight out of a street food cart in Malaysia, is a delicious memory I often reminisce about. And although it’s the second year the Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar had to be cancelled in Singapore, there are permanent places you can find the highly sought after burger.
Recently, even family restaurant Swensen’s, known for its ice-cream and Western fare, has jumped on the bandwagon and released their own version of the famous burger, the Bagus Burger.
While some of you may be envisioning a thick, meaty patty, here’s the catch — the burger is actually plant-based. Yes, you read that right. A plant-based Ramly-inspired burger. Intriguing.
Another shocking factor is the price point. Swensen’s Bagus Burger, which features an Impossible meat patty, is going for $15.80 — pretty steep compared to a regular Ramly burger, which usually costs around $4.
