McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger

Nasi Lemak is something every Singaporean can savour anytime of the day, including late night supper. The key to a mouthwatering Nasi Lemak is the sambal chili and the “lemak-ness” (that creamy coconut goodness) of the rice. So how did McDonald’s pull off the lemak-ness without the rice?

CLEVER! I must say. The thick and juicy chicken thigh patty is infused with that aromatic coconut flavour and engulfed in an extra crispy crust of cornflakes. Together with fresh cucumber, a fried egg (not the same egg used in Mcdonald’s breakfast), caramelised onions and topped with the sweet & not too spicy sambal sauce, you just got yourself a yummy Nasi Lemak without rice. Totally worth your calories! Of course, it doesn’t come with Fish Otah. You’ll have to bring your own.

The Nasi Lemak Burger is available at McDonald’s across Singapore from S$5.95 for a la carte or S$7.80 for an Extra Value Meal.

The taste was spot on and so smooth it just flows down your throat. It is not too sweet and so light on your palette that you would not mind gobbling one down after a full meal. You will crave for more!!!

  3. TodayI tried the new NASI LEMAK set meal from McDonalds. Here is my review:

    I live above the McDonalds at 369 Sembawang Road, and I come it all the time for a quick bite or to meet up with friends and colleagues. The manager, Jeslyn Ung, is always so friendly to me and my family when we stop by – really, the whole staff, top to bottom, is really, friendly, very well-trained in customer service, and keen representatives of your restaurant.

    I started with the CrissCut fries – very well cooked, crispy and delicious. The shape is more suitable for picking up katsup than long fries, and it fits the mouth better without accidental flicking of sauce on the face or shirt.

    Next, I took a sip of the Bandung McFizz. Bandang is typically a pink, rose-syrup drink which can be very very sweet – often too much so. This one has a nice balance of flavor, sweetness and quenching ability. I really loved it. Very thirst-quenching.

    Next, I attacked the Nasi Lemak. Now, I’m an Ang Moh (caucasian) who has lived in Singapore for 15 years. About 5 years ago I developed a taste for Nasi Lemak, and have made it my business to scour the island for new versions. So far, the best is at Khatib food court. But the McDonald’s version captures all the flavours and textures.

    one criticism: I was looking forward to the familiar salty taste and crunch of ikan bilis, so I was disappointed to find it was replaced with sweet onions. Thought the onions help brought out the flavour of the sambal, the overall texture of the sandwich grew increasingly soggy as I ate, whereas with more dry ingredients (like Ikan Bilis) the sandwich might retain it’s physical integrity longer.

    Another suggestion for the sambal: it was nice, but very much on the tame, sweet side. perhaps a low, medium, hot option for the sambal will add a slight time delay to the order, but will more than make up for it in customer satisfaction, since the sambal is the heart of the meal.

    That being said, the chicken, egg and cucumber were perfect; a nice balance of flavour and texture, and the high-quality bun kept the motley collection of indredients (mostly) in place.

    Finally, dessert: the coconut pie. The filling was creamier than many coconut pies I’ve had before – almost a pudding, and there were a few flakes of solid coconut inside. A very nice close to the meal!
