Today was one of those day at work where the day doesn’t seem like it could ever end.
5 hours of Overtime later, I was on my way home, only to learn that the Family didn’t prepare my dinner for me.
So, on the spur of the moment, I decided that today would be Burger Night.
Tugging the $5 note I have in my pocket, I got myself a Ramly Burger and a McChicken Sandwich. Now, I know there are many uneducated, unhealthy idiots out there who will consider these fat, greasy burgers as a complete meal unto themselves and I must confess I am one of them.
I mean come on, a standard burger consists of ingredients from the 3 food groups essential in a healthy and well rounded diet, namely: meat, vegetables and mayonise.
So how do these 2 burgers fare against each other? Because I’ve just had a taste of both, I decided to come up with a head to head comparison between the two. (Also because I need to take my mind off the cranium destroying work stuff)
Many would claim that the only test that matters would be the Taste of the burgers, I beg to differ. A good burger consist of so many other factors, so I’ve split the head to head comparison into a few categories and I’ll start with the most important, namely…
I’m sure many would agree that McDonald’s does not sell the best burgers in the world, yet they sell the most. A McChicken is…. safe. You can have a McChicken at ANY McDonald’s and it will taste of fried chicken patty, barely frest lettuce and mayonise. A Ramly burger on the other hand is a total surprise depending on who you buy it from. There can be 5 Ramly stores at the local Pasar Malam and there’ll be 5 different tasting Ramly Burgers.
And that’s not necessarily a good thing…
The first bite into a Ramly Burger is always an adventure. As the burger’s sauce spills out into your mouth, you have roughly 3 seconds before the taste hits you. As a wise man once said… “You never know what you’re gonna get”
Winner: RAMLY, by a whisker (because it was my lucky day). My Ramly had a sourish vineger taste, mixed with the sweetness of the mayonise and the spiciness of the Ramly powder… which tastes good… and could have gone all the way down the other lane any other day.
See picture above… The McChicken was smartly wrapped in a paper wrapper while the Ramly was… you know there’s this tagline by another fast food joint about finger lickin’? Ramly good use that tagline too
Ramly : $3
Winner: Duh… the extra $1 could’ve gotten me an Apple Pie… (Mmmm… Apple Pie)
McChicken: Bun, Chicken, Lettuce, Mayonise
Ramly: Bun, Chicken, Mayonise, Cheese, lettuce, a whole buncha sauce that I do not even wanna think about…
Winner: You have to ask yourself, are you feeling lucky?? Well are you punk??
There concludes my head to head comparision. I guess the first question most people would ask would be… what about the Whopper?
Sorry dudes, it’s a fight that’s strictly between burgers that cost under $3 only.
And another observation you might have made is that there must be something wrong with this guy to use movie quotes for a review on food… what can I say, except “Big Kahuna Burger” to that.
Yes Yes, I know there is no “Overall Winner”. Hey Mc D! Give me some freebies and I’ll declare you the winner. *nudge*
