#TeamCLEO Tried McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger And Here’s What We Think
Last year, our neighbours were going crazy over McDonald's Nasi Lemak Burger that was launched to celebrate Singapore's national day. Transforming a staple dish into a burger, the set was also completed with Cendol Ice-Cream and Bandung Fizz.
Aside from sparking a major debate on social media on which country should claim Nasi Lemak as their local delicacy (please don't fight, just makan!), it goes without saying that Malaysians felt major FOMO up until a few days ago when McDonald's Malaysia teased the limited edition burger on Facebook.
Of course we immediately made a countdown to the release date and ordered the burgers to try for ourselves. Get the latest updates by following @cleomsia on Instagram!

McDonald's Nasi Lemak Burger is available at all outlets today onwards for a limited time only.
“I like it. I’d buy it again. And I’ve already recommended it to a few people. The sambal could’ve been spicier, and there could have been more of that santan flavour throughout, but the coconut flavoured chicken was really tasty, and had a nice crunch. I also like that the sambal had so much onions. I LOVE my nasi lemak, but if you’re looking for that explosion of all the flavours and textures on that plate in your mouth, you’ll be disappointed. If you’re looking for a burger with a nasi lemak bang, this is it”
