McDonalds Goes Head to Head with Ramly?

Just an observation I made recently..

I noticed McDonalds released a trio of new burgers (at the same time, they sadly ditched my FAVOURITE thing – The Orange McFizz!)

But anyway, did anyone notice the similarity to the Ramly family of burgers? Well let’s be frank, they are exactly the same.

McDonalds Trio

Burger Ayam, Daging Special and Daging Cheese, called Chicken Burger, Beef & Egg Burger and Cheese Burger Deluxe Respectively.

They don’t have quite the range of the Ramly as it’s customisable, but it’s essentially the same thing.

I noticed on buying a ‘Cheeseburger Deluxe’ too that they are going for the Ramly style, Ketchup and Mayo and loads of it all running out the sides.

I will say…I am rather a fan of the new Cheeseburger Deluxe, it does hit the spot…still not the same as Giraffe burger in SS2 tho.

    Has Maccas {aka MacDonalds} tried to compete with Subway in Malaysia? In Australia they introduced healthy subs at both Maccas and Hungry Jacks [AKA Burger King] in order to try to cash in on the Subway market.

    I’d guess that Ramly (have no idea who that is, but I assume they’re like Maccas) is probably taking a bit of the burger market off Maccas … so they’re competing by offering more of the same! 🙂

    How could they have ditched the Orange McFizz?!!! NOOOOO!!!!!!! Do they expect us to buy and orange juice AND a Sprite and mix em together ourselves?! Bastards! BASTARDS!

    *Pauses to catch her breath*

    And what’s a Giraffe Burger? And where in SS2?

    Just had Chili’s Beef Bacon Burger. YUM! Must make it a point to stop at that SS2 burger stall since I pass by every night from work.

    FA: Jom you can belanja me.

    Gouki: Come I’ll hand you the burger 😉

    Dabido: Nah there’s no real competition from Subway here as there’s only 1-2 branches in Malaysia and it’s quite expensive. They do have something called the Chicken Foldover tho, which is more healthy. Ramly is a local burger franchise, small stalls on the streetcorners with young lads selling burgers.

    Jamie: I know..the bastards, was my favourite thing. It’s in the big mamak area with all the umbrellas, gerai misai, the steamed chicken rice etc, near the police station. If you look at the mamak area face on (it’s a C-shape) the burger stall would the last stall on the right side.

    Kelvin: See above. Rasta one looks good, I used to hang out there quite often with diving buddies. I love the spicy chicken, proper chicken fillet and nice and peppery.

    gbyeow: Bah lucky you. I love the mushroom swiss at chilis and the philly cheese steak sandwich at fridays.

    The burger at Williams near the old lim kok wing is great too, home made patty, huge thing.

    Ramly’s at Uptown, outside this particular Restoran Bee Fatt…….it’s awesome. Ayam Cheese Spesial.

  10. Kelvin June 16, 2006 at 3:13 pm #

    the burger stall at bee fatt used to be much better…

    ah that SS2 one… damn greasy… that open air mamak, i used to frequent until 4-5am bcos of the video arcades (fond memories of virtua racer). the old fella loves to go around asking if u want boiled see ham (cockles) or sotong kangkong.

    Girrafe burger?, i have never seen one, shaolintiger could you post a picture?

  19. Wimpy June 20, 2006 at 10:24 pm #

    RM3 (minus the tax) for a cheeseburger is quite cheap. Ramly costs about the same or a little more anyway.
