We Really Need To Talk About This Epic Burger Sampah In Ampang

When we first heard about Burger Sampah, we were naturally rather appalled. After all, a name is an important aspect of a dish and we figured who in their right mind would want to sell something called trash burger? And why would anyone buy trash burgers in the first place?

Well, to both questions I say: Malaysians. We certainly have peculiar tastebuds, don’t we?

And of course, the meal in question is nowhere near trashy.

Founded in Ampang, OM Burger has been operating for more than 20 years and has made waves among KL-ites with their burgers, having a lot of people lining up just to try it out or coming back for a second taste. Though the gerai is called OM Burger, customers gave it the nickname Burger Sampah due to how sloppy it is.

Their version of the Burger Sampah resembles the classic Sloppy Joe. Typically, a Sloppy Joe in America would consist of ground beef or pork, onions, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings. They’re oily, greasy, and messy and people love it.

OM Burger sells a localised, halal version of that with chicken, beef and lamb patties. Their burgers are known to be the tastiest and messiest in town, and the messy part is well-justified. That’s because margarine pretty much drowns each patty, along with a generous amount of cheese, oily fried eggs, and huge globs of ketchup/chili sauce and mayonnaise.

During the cooking process, you can see all of the bits – bun, patty, eggs, margarine – just soaking it up in a pool of oil, which only traps the flavours in place and helps it to not lose its taste.

OM Burger’s menu is extensive and surprisingly cheap, considering how they are located near the KL city centre. One normal chicken burger only costs RM2, and their most expensive products – the ‘double specials’ – are only RM5!

Sounds to me like a pretty affordable price for a dish that has earned the nickname “trash”.  

Hours: Monday-Sunday: 8pm-5am.

Address: OM Burger (in front of 7-11) Lorong Kolam Air Lama, Ampang Jaya, 68000 Selangor, Malaysia.
