Nasi Lemak Burger McDonald’s Malaysia Review
Today is the first day Nasi Lemak Burger on sale in McDonald’s Malaysia. We blogged about the preview of Nasi Lemak Burger a few days ago. This morning, I went to McDonald’s and the first few in the line to buy the Nasi Lemak Burger.
When the Nasi Lemak Burger is launched in Singapore last year, it was sold out fast. Then, they relaunched again and it was sold out too. Same goes to D24 Durian McFlurry in McD Malaysia last year, it was sold out fast.
McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger is sold at RM14.95 for an ala carte and RM16.95 for a regular set meal, that includes French Fries & a 100PLUS (free re-fill). They allow you to change to other drink if you want.
I ordered the Nasi Lemak burger set at RM 16.95 including the fries and 100 Plus. It takes them a while as this is a new product and there is also a long queue for it. It is not shocking there are many people curious out there on this Nasi Lemak burger including me.
Let’s look at the Nasi Lemak Burger. It is not as big as they advertised but the size and portion are big. It is bigger than the other burgers.
What’s under the buns is the fried chicken meat, sambal sauce, sautéed onions, fried egg and sliced cucumbers. What is missing from the usual nasi lemak is the rice, peanuts and ikan bilis (anchovies).
You probably watched the video of my review and this is what I am going to add on. The sambal sauce is sweet and not that spicy and for those spicy lovers, you might complain on the sauce. Please take note that, this Nasi Lemak burger is targeted for the mass market so it is hard for them to make it too spicy. I would love to have crispy anchovies in that burger but I know that will make their kitchen more complicated as it requires them to deep fry the anchovies which means they need an extra fryer. Frying anchovies creates strong smells that might not be friendly to all the guests. For nuts, it will be hard for those with nuts allergy.
Overall, I enjoyed the Nasi Lemak Burger and maybe you should try it too. Thanks for reading guys and hope you enjoy the Nasi Lemak Burger like I do.
