I was invited to a McDonald’s food-tasting event last Friday and I’m so happy to be one of the first few to try this new offering from McDonald’s, which is my favorite fast food restaurant! ^_^
I was one of the early birds during the event and while waiting for the event to start, we were served with the delicious and refreshing Strawberry McFizz™.
Other bloggers started arriving soon after. This is my first event in Singapore and I was very delighted to be in the company of other bloggers. ^_^ After a few minutes, Sam arrived and announced that McDonald’s will soon be offering Satay Burgers.
If you’re a local, you probably know what Satay is. For those who do not know, Satay is a dish of seasoned, skewered, and grilled meat (beef, mutton, pork, chicken, etc) served with peanut sauce, onions, and cucumbers.
It was then time to treat ourselves to a familiar Singaporean flavor with McDonald’s Shiok Shiok Satay Burgers!
With two variants to choose from (Chicken and Beef), there is surely one that you will fancy.
Shiok Shiok Beef Satay Burger
The first one served was the Beef Satay Burger.
Double 100% beef grilled patties, topped up with tantalising fragrant Satay peanut sauce, paired with cool cucumber slices on a toasted sesame bun. It is definitely a local flavour that you’ll want to savour again – Shiok Ah!
Since I am pretty much used to Singaporean food, I know what to expect when it comes to taste. It was definitely Satay in burger form. Their beef patties were succulent as ever. Each bite was super packed with flavors. I’m not a fan of cucumbers nor onions but I am pretty much delighted with the peanut sauce. I couldn’t get enough of it! It was truly a meaty sensation!
The best thing was that it came with my favorite French Fries. LOL! Paired mine with curry sauce. So yummy!
Shiok Shiok Chicken Satay Burger
Next came the Chicken Satay Burger.
Skinless tender grilled chicken thigh patty, topped up with tantalising fragrant Satay peanut sauce, paired with cool cucumber slices on a toasted sesame bun. It is definitely a local flavour that you’ll want to savour again – Shiok Ah!
Among the two variants, the Chicken Satay Burger is MY FAVORITE! I just love the skinless grilled chicken because it was so tender and juicy and it was thigh part some more! ^_^ The peanut sauce and the grilled chicken patty are just so perfect together. Really love this burger!
So here are the two burgers side by side:
The new Shiok Shiok Chicken Satay Burger Extra Value Meal and Shiok Shiok Beef Satay Burger Extra Value Meal which includes a Medium French Fries and Small Coke are available from $6.60 each. The ala carte Shiok Shiok Chicken Satay Burger and Shiok Shiok Beef Satay Burger are available from $5.50 each.
Launched in celebration of the upcoming National Day, these burgers will be available from 15 July onwards, while stocks last.
These burgers can also be paired with their 2-pc Smokey Drumlets available from $2. These will fire up your tastebuds with succulent chicken drumlets marinated with smokey spices like black pepper and paprika that will add an irresistible spicy kick!
Then you can cool down the fire with a refreshing Strawberry McFizz™ available from just $2.70. The Strawberry McFizzv is basically Sprite with strawberry sundae syrup with actual strawberry bits. In this hot Singapore weather, Strawberry McFizz™ is just the perfect way to stay cool.
Finally, go bananas over their sweet treat – the Banana Pie, with its luscious mashed banana filling enclosed in a crispy pie crust, available for just $1. Mind you, this Banana Pie is quite reminiscent to the turon in the Philippines. Definitely a must try!
During the event, there was a mini game. We were given a crossword puzzle which basically tests how well we understand Singlish. Being the only foreigner in the group, I sucked at this. LOL!
Even though I’ve been here for 10 months already, I only got two words. Haha! Can you fill in the whole puzzle? Click here for the answers.
The first three people who got it correctly won a prize, which was a Singlish journal.
Jamie was one of the winners and she so nice to give hers to me. Now I can widen my Singlish vocabulary!
I enjoyed this night and I know that all of us had fun. 🙂 Here’s a picture with all of us posing with our fans:
So cute right? And then here are pictures with Sam (from McDonald’s) and Rui (from omy Blog Club).
So that was how my Friday went. Pretty nice right? 🙂 Thank you McDonald’s and omy Blog Club! <3
What are you waiting for then? Head on now to the nearest McDonald’s and try the NEW Satay Burgers to experience true Singaporean Shiokness! Please do let me know which one you prefer! ^_^
