In a space of two weeks since the official launch on 13th July 2017, this iconic and newly locally inspired burger by McDonald’s Singapore, the “Nasi Lemak” burger took Singapore by storm and it was sold out. This was an overwhelming response and it was pretty unbelievable! I was glad that I had the opportunity to taste the “Nasi Lemak” burger prior to the official launch of the “Nasi Lemak” burger.
Initially, I was skeptical of the “Nasi Lemak” burger when I heard of the name. However, when I took a bite and tasted it, I was swayed across and I really liked it! I thought I would still have the chance to eat the “Nasi Lemak” burger again, yet I would never realise that it was sold out that fast, in two weeks!
McDonald’s Singapore thanks Singaporeans for their overwhelming support of its “Nasi Lemak” burger and the locally inspired menu offerings.
“Singaporeans’ overwhelming support for our “Nasi Lemak” Burger and other locally-inspired menu offerings have far exceeded our wildest imagination. We are both heartened and honoured to receive so many positive reviews from customers and food critics who have truly enjoyed our latest creations. And we will certainly consider suggestions to bring it back sometime in the future,” said Agatha Yap, Senior Director of Marketing, Menu and Digital Innovation, McDonald’s Singapore.
“The success of our locally-inspired menu attests to Singaporeans’ love for local flavours with a modern twist, and is also a result of our menu innovation efforts. We will continue to evolve and innovate our menu, staying close to local and international food trends, and strive to delight our customers with tantalising new tastes on top of their favourite McDonald’s core classics,” she added.
