Move over Samurai Burger, there is a new burger in town and it not a beefy pushover.
Mcdonald's had been introducing different variants of its menu overseas. There were past renditions in Singapore such as beef and chicken satay burger and beef rendang burger. This year, Mcdonald's had decided to release not one but 5 local versions from it's menu. It is innovative, but does it pass the discerning local taste test?
Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger
|McDonald's Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger|
Salted Egg Yolk chicken has been a staple at local Zi Char store. When we heard that McDonald's had created a burger version of it, our curiosity was picked. It taste great in it's original form, but how would it taste burgerised?
McDonald's version includes a whole-muscle chicken patty, salted egg yolk sauce, curry leaves and chopped lettuce on a black and white sesame bun.
Honestly, the standard differs from restaurant to restaurant and even burger to burger. Mine had a juicy patty but salted egg yolk sauce unevenly distributed thus creating only selected bites of delight. The missus had a go at hers and she proclaim it to be shoik!
Taste Test Result : 7.5/10 Subjective to your individual burger
Rating : 7/10 Not a fan, so it's never going to be a 10 . Totally bias I know.

Taste Test : 8/10 Would have given it higher if it does not cost me 30 minutes on the treadmill
|Mcdonald's Banana Pie|
Amongst the local menu, this would be the bomb.
The banana pie will give any Goreng Pisang a run for the money. A must try!
Taste Test : 9/10 It is that good!
