Fast food chain McDonald’s officially launched a new menu exclusively for its fans in Singapore today (July 13), and it has certainly generated quite the buzz among everyone.
Inspired by local signature delicacies, the menu consists of a Nasi Lemak Burger, Chendol McFlurry, Bandung McFizz, Coconut Pie and McFizz, Coconut Pie and Criss Cut Fries.
Stomp contributor Vi saw a huge crowd at McDonald’s The Metropolis outlet at around 12.30pm today, when she was having lunch in the area.
According to her, the queue was so long that it extended beyond the fast food restaurant’s premises.
So does McDonald’s new menu live up to the hype?
Netizens have been leaving their feedback on McDonald’s Facebook page and the nasi lemak burger, unsurprisingly, appears to be the most popular item.
Facebook user Nasrul X Shahida gave the burger an 8/10 rating and wrote: “From the rempah chicken fillet to the slightly spicy sambal tumis, it was a delight at every bite. The sambal tumis actually tasted like sambal tumis albeit being sweeter and slightly less spicy.”
Another user, Noor Hayati, said, “Nasi Lemak burger does taste a bit like Nasi Lemak and the sambal is nice. Being old school, I still prefer the original Nasi Lemak but of course this is a must try.”
Online publication Stirr recently did a “brutally honest taste test” of the burger. Watch the video below for their verdict.
