What Makes a McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger?

by Honey on Wed, April 25, 2018

Now you know. McDonald's Malaysia has launched Nasi Lemak Burger. We food nerds will always like to kepoh on what goes into making something so audacious as a Nasi Lemak Burger, kan? Everyone knows that taking something much-loved like nasi lemak where everybody in Malaysia has an opinion about and transforming it into a burger is a cool challenge. Before we go into the taste, here’s what’s in it.

So how does it taste like? *drumroll… pretty good actually! The sambal has a lovely local taste. It’s a little sweet with savoury undertones. McDonald’s wanted to develop a sambal sauce that will appeal to Malaysian’s tastebuds.

Like nasi lemak where you need to eat all of its components together to get the full impact, Nasi Lemak Burger is like that too. It is for lack of a better word a really well engineered burger. We think that all the components have been thought through and everything works really well together to give you a balanced taste. It does actually taste a little like a nasi lemak bungkus in a bun! Best!

So… available for a limited time only from 26 April while stocks last, don’t miss the chance to try out The Nasi Lemak Burger inspired by Malaysian’s love for nasi lemak. McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger is available at RM14.95 for an ala carte and RM16.95 for a medium set meal, that includes French Fries & a 100PLUS.
