Sedap Wagyu Burgers From $6 By Ex-Three Buns Head Chef At Muslim-Friendly Hawker Stall In Jln Besar
Salai M’an serves good-value wagyu burgers with brioche buns, but the wood-smoked meats are less impressive.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of gritty Berseh Food Centre in Jalan Besar is a stall that emanates the pleasant scent of applewood smoke and charred meats from a rustic smoker. It cuts quite the contrast from the zi char stall across the aisle. Salai M’an (Salai means “smoke” in Malay; Man is a nod to the owner Sulaiman’s name) is a Muslim-owned stall serving rather gourmet, labour-intensive smoked meats and also burgers. The grub is cheerfully prepped by the stall’s chill and friendly owner, Sulaiman Kausar, who opened this joint a month ago.
