Press Release on McDonalds
McDonald’s Singapore has launched a limited-time menu that comprises with Singapore’s traditional local favourites. In this new menu, you can expect to see modern interpretations of Singapore’s familiar local fare including Nasi Lemak, Bandung and Chendol. This is launched in conjunction with Singapore Food Festival (SFF) 2017.
This year, McDonalds is a partner of the annual festival organised by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) which celebrates our local, multi-ethnic food heritage, ranging from hawker fare to contemporary dining.
Inspired by the iconic Malay dish, the “Nasi Lemak” Burger combines key elements of the dish in a mouth-watering recipe. The chicken thigh patty, a star ingredient of the burger, is rich in coconut flavours and coated with cornflakes crunch for an extra crispy finish. Served between lightly toasted semolina buns, the chicken thigh patty is layered with a golden fried egg, a bed of caramelised onions, cucumber slices, and topped off with a dash of sweet and spicy sambal sauce for that added zing. The “Nasi Lemak” Burger is available from S$5.95 a la carte, or from S$7.80 in an Extra Value Meal.
From S$3.40, customers can also enjoy the savoury goodness of Criss Cut Fries. To balance out the rich flavours of your meal, chill out with a glass of Bandung McFizz from S$3.
End your meal on a sweet note by digging into a Chendol McFlurry from S$3. Comprising a mix of vanilla soft serve with Gula Melaka sauce with Chendol jelly bits, customers can savour the taste of the traditional dessert with a modern twist. Those craving for a warm dessert can get their hands on the Coconut Pie from S$1.20 and enjoy some oozing tropical coconut filling with nata de coco bits.
