Meet the Penang legendary street burger at Hillside Uncle’s Burger located at Tanjung Tokong, Penang. This is one of a burger stall I have been eating since high school till now. One of a rare gem in Penang street food that you will find the only Chinese burger Stall in the island (correct me if I am wrong). Or Ramlee burger, Chinese version.
The old couple have been running the stall easily more than 20 years. Of course due to inflation price certainly increase and during this after pandemic period, the business is still brisk like the usual. Been ages since last had and I think easily the last I had was 15 years ago. Now, training his son up to take up spot. Certainly there is taste diff but practice makes perfect.
Be prepare to queue for 45 mins to 90 mins for a pippin hot burger. Usually I will buy to eat at the food court or eat at the playground. Then walk over to the Chinese shop next to 7-11 to grab a can of beer. Certainly Satisfying.
Of course I will be ordering, Beef, Cheese and Egg @ RM 9
As the couple age, now they are pasing the baton to their son. Early session will be son training in progress to take over. When it hit easily after 4.30pm – 5pm the uncle will be in action. Do prepare to see his fast action as orders are pilling up.
Their signature of course the treasure stash infront of it.
Love they way how they cook the egg. still wobby juicy not fully cooked. The best way to pair with burger.
Here is my juicy beef burger. Miss the flavors although there is the diff from his dad and son. Each bite is with satisfaction. Mix sourish, mild red onion spicy with their own special sauce , with hint of some sweetness, certainly hit the mark.
Oh well, must go makan while they are still there. Le’commended? of course! Even not the same still Le’commend cuz one of its kind.
