So bad for our diets but so good to indulge anytime — pretty much our sentiments towards McDonald’s.
So imagine our whooping delight when they announced they’ll be launching limited edition menu items that are not only tasty but also take inspiration from local flavours.
From June 30 onwards, the Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger, Twist & Shake Fries with Salt & Pepper Crab Flavoured Shaker, and Gula Melaka McFlurry with Layer Cake Bites will be made available in all restaurants and via McDelivery.
Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger
Inspired by Singaporeans’ obsession for all things salted egg yolk, McDonald’s infuses the rich, salty-sweet grainy concoction with breaded whole-muscle chicken patty, curry leaves and chopped lettuce on a black pepper and white sesame bun.
Available a-la carte from $5.75. Customers can enjoy the burger in an Extra Value Meal that includes French Fries (M) and Coca-Cola (S) from $7.50.
Twist & Shake Fries with Salt & Pepper Crab Flavoured Shaker
The Twist & Shake Fries with Salt & Pepper Crab Flavoured Shaker combines the best of both worlds – Loop Fries and Shaker Fries, and is amped up with a flavourful seasoning reminiscent of Singapore’s iconic salt and pepper crab.
Customers can purchase the Twist & Shake Fries (M) with Salt & Pepper Crab Flavoured Shaker a-la-carte from $3.40 or enjoy it with any Extra Value Meal by topping up $0.60.
Gula Melaka McFlurry with Layer Cake Bites
Your favourite Nonya kueh, now in dessert form. Gula Melaka (palm sugar) is a local favourite when it comes to desserts and cakes; while the Kueh Lapis (Thousand Layer Cake) is a must-have during festive seasons in Singapore.
The Gula Melaka McFlurry with Layer Cake Bites combines swirls of Gula Melaka-flavoured syrup with velvety vanilla soft serve and tops it off with delicious layer cake bites.
The Gula Melaka McFlurry with Layer Cake Bites can be purchased a-la-carte from $2.90.
