McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger

McDonald’s in Singapore had recently done a limited run of a burger inspired by the humble but famous nasi lemak which is a common dish found in Malaysia and Singapore consisting of rice cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaves (screwpine) and accompanied by servings of fried or curry chicken, fried or hard boiled eggs, fried ikan bilis (anchovies) and spicy sambal.

The McDonald’s burger was a reasonable interpretation of the nasi lemak, substituting the rice with burger buns. The sambal was decent and with an appropriate amount of spicy heat. Definitely worth a try.
