Good news everyone! McDonald’s Malaysia offers NEW Nasi Lemak McD with Rendang Ayam. Our favourite Nasi Lemak McD comes with savoury rendang ayam or together with with Spicy Chicken McDeluxe cutlet or Grilled Chicken Burger (GCB). This was announced last week at McDonald’s Putrajaya Precint two last week.
The Nasi Lemak McD with Rendang Ayam and Nasi Lemak McD with Spicy Chicken McDeluxe cutlet or Grilled Chicken Burger (GCB) cutlet are now available at all McDonald’s Malaysia restaurants nationwide. The Nasi Lemak McD set with 1 piece Rendang Ayam McD and an Iced Lemon Tea is priced from RM16.99, while the Nasi Lemak McD set with Spicy Chicken McDeluxe or Grilled Chicken Burger (GCB) cutlet and an Iced Lemon Tea is priced from RM14.99.
What we like about the Nasi Lemak McD with Rendang Ayam is the spicy rendang that comes with the tender texture of the chicken. With the fragrant coconut rice as well as their popular sweet and spicy sambal, Nasi Lemak McD is one of the popular food now in McDonald’s Malaysia. Our friends from other countries are envy whenever I post the photo the Nasi Lemak McD as it is available in McDonald’s Malaysia.
On top of the NEW Nasi Lemak McD with Rendang Ayam, do you remember the Mekdi signage viral photos at McDonald’s Bukit Bintang Outlet? In conjuction with Merdeka and Malaysia Day, McDonald’s Malaysia is once again embracing its ‘Malaysian-ness’ by having the Mekdi signage at selected restaurants nationwide.
This comes as the company celebrates 38 years since opening its first McDonald’s restaurant at Bukit Bintang. The signage for Mekdi – which is the localised nickname for ‘McD’, short for McDonald’s – was officially displayed at a celebration held at McDonald’s Putrajaya Drive-Thru restaurant, and will also be prominently put up at 16* selected restaurants across various states in the country.
Do watch the YouTube video and see how the 16 restaurants were chosen by Malaysians themselves, who were given the power to vote for which McDonald’s restaurant should display the Mekdi signage.
“ The Mekdi name created a lot of excitement last year when we first revealed the signageat our iconic Bukit Bintang restaurant, and this showed how Mekdi truly resonated with Malaysians from all walks of life. So this year, we wanted to pay tribute to more Malaysians across the country by turning their favourite McDonald’s into a Mekdias well,” said Hajjah Melati Abdul Hai, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of McDonald’s Malaysia.
According to Hajjah Melati, McDonald’s Malaysia embraces the very essence of being Malaysian, from its food, to its people, as well as the causes that the company champions.
“We are living through unprecedented times. The pandemic tested our business operations on so many levels, and we are grateful to our customers for sticking with us through this challenging period. We’re also proud to see our crew stepping up and ensuring that strict safety standard operating procedures (SOPs) are adhered to at all McDonald’s restaurants nationwide. This underscores the #KitaBoleh spirit that our people have embraced,” said Hajjah Melati.
With over 14,000 employees in 300 restaurants across the country, McDonald’s Malaysia also prioritises talent and skills development among its workforce. With plans to open 450 stores by 2025, McDonald’s Malaysia also targets to add 10,000 more employees to its workforce.
McDonald’s Malaysia is also a strong community player, encouraging all its restaurants nationwide to give back to local communities by organising various initiatives such as meal donations to local charities, Teacher’s Day celebrations as well as flood relief efforts. Through Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), McDonald’s Malaysia continues to support programmes that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. Another initiative close to McDonald’s heart is the ‘Back-to-School’ programme, which has benefitted 53,000 urban poor primary school children since 2017.
Lastly, McDonald’s is also infusing local flavours into its dessert menu with the all-new Cendol McFlurry, which features delicious Gula Melaka, coconut bits, creamy vanilla soft-serve, and Cendol jelly. Exciting local desserts such as Corn Pie and Cendol-flavoured ice cream are also making a comeback.
The McFlurry Cendol is sweet and savoury and we enjoyed the cendol with the sweet Gula Melaka with soft creamy vanilla soft serve with crunchy coconut bits. The McFlurry Cendol is also another popular Malaysian food in McDonald’s Malaysia.
