We hope you’re as excited about Singapore’s 57th birthday bash as fast-food giant McDonald’s is. Other than looking forward to the fireworks display on National Day, which falls on Aug 9, burger fanatics should keep an eye out for McDonald’s limited-edition Laksa Delight Burger.
Available from Thursday (July 28), the burgers are inspired by a hearty bowl of laksa and come in two iterations — Laksa Delight Prawn Burger and Laksa Delight Chicken Burger (from S$7.40, a la carte). The patties, topped with a creamy laksa sauce, a round egg, and cabbage slaw, will be sandwiched between soft, toasted butter buns.
But that’s not all. Pair your laksa burger with a teh C frappe (S$4.50 for a small version and S$5 for a medium version), topped with chocolate powder and freshly whipped cream. Teh C is typically served as hot tea with evaporated milk, but this icy version will certainly help you beat the heat.
Don’t miss out on dessert with McDonald’s latest addition of pulut hitam pie (from S$1.70). Crisp and flaky pastry is filled with purple sticky-rice coconut-cream filling — the perfect sweet ending for lovers of local desserts.
If your tummy’s rumbling for a treat, the Laksa Delight Feast (from S$10.80) will satisfy your hunger pangs. It includes a Laksa Delight Burger (prawn or chicken), medium French fries, a pulut hitam pie, and a small Coke.
The Laksa Delight Burger, teh C frappe and pulut hitam pie will be available from July 28 after breakfast hours at all McDonald’s stores for dine-in, takeaway, or delivery via its app and delivery services such as GrabFood.
