Taste Test: McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger And Banana Pie 2019

Sharing is caring!

“You mean it is back?”, was the reaction around the office when the news broke that the McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger and Banana Pie had returned.

Apparently, some of us did not have the chance to try out the Nasi Lemak Burger the last time it was around two years ago. We trekked out to give the McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger 2019 version a taste test.

McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger 2019 Review

McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger 2019 ReviewThe McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger 2019 arrived in a cardboard box, just as we remembered it the last time around. The sandwich consists of a crispy chicken thigh layered between a semolina bun. No ikan bilis here but the burger does come with a fried egg, caramalised onions and slices of cucumber. It is lathered with a sweet and spicy sambal chilli sauce.

We unwrapped the McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger, version 2019, and bit into it with anticipation.

There are some who dislike the burger but we weren’t “some”. Instead, we quite enjoyed tucking into the McDonald’s Nasi Lemak burger.

The last time around, the Nasi Lemak Burger was initially sold out after two weeks. 2019, it is still a “while stocks last” special menu item. Hopefully, it stays around longer this time around.

McDonald’s Banana Pie Taste Test

McDonald's Banana Pie Taste TestAnother favourite that McDonald’s Singapore has brought back, for a limited time only, is the Banana Pie.

McDonald's Banana Pie 2019With creamy banana filling encrusted inside a McDonald’s regular pie shell, the Banana Pie is perfect for pairing with the Nasi Lemak Burger. Sedap!

We personally didn’t appreciate the Chendol McFlurry. We’d probably stick with the Banana Pie as our dessert of choice!

There you go. If you haven’t tried the McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger, now’s your chance to do so, before it is gone again.
