McDonald will be launching new burgers and this time it's featuring one of the famous Malay dishes in Singapore: Satay! Thanks to Omy and McDonald, I had the chance to be one of the first few to try out these new Shiok Shiok Satay Burgers.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the words used for McDonalds' new burger, "Shiok" is a singlish word that is an expression of satisfaction, an example of the word used in a sentence, "So shiok to have a cooling drink in such a warm weather." The reason behind this new launch is simply to celebrate being a Singaporean, cheers to that!
When I first got there, there was a fan(as seen in the picture above) placed on the table of each seat, and the fan is commonly seen to be used for fanning the satay. I was guessing something to do with satay, which is one of my favourite dishes and now combined with McDonald just makes it even better!
The beef patties may look a little dry on the outside but it is soft and chewy when I bite into it. The mixture of peanut sauce, onions and cucumber slices with beef is good, I felt like I'm actually having a bite into a stick of satay rather than a burger. The sauce may not seem to be generously spread in picture as the sauce is spread on the top and bottom parts of the bun. In future, I think I would actually request for more sauce to further enhance the taste!
Usually I hate onions in my burger or even when I am having satay, but the combination of the ingredients are so good and complement each other well that I didn't pick out any of the onions and finished the burger in a couple of bites!
These burgers are so good that I ate one full beef burger and three quarters into the chicken burger on the spot! I could have finished both before the end of the session if I didn't keep taking pictures.
If you want to get your hands on these yummy burgers, it will be available in stores from 15th July onwards, and it is launched in celebration of the upcoming National Day. Do try them while they are available! The prices as follows:
Strawberry McFizz $2.70
Banana Pie $1
