Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang Burger.
This whole thing started with McDonalds Singapore coming up with a Nasi Lemak Burger, which got everyone hyped up fighting about where Nasi Lemak is originally from.
Anyways, I love Nasi Lemak, I love Ayam Rendang, and I love burgers!
So, I just had to try the burger out la right?
My favourite burger from myBurgerLab is Beautiful Mess. Somehow, I wasn’t feeling like having an entire Rendang Burger to myself that day. The boyfriend and I decided to get a Beautiful Mess and a Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang Burger to share.
Lots of sambal and lots of rendang. Plus a giant piece of the ayam (chicken).
The burger also has a layer of peanut butter (YES, PEANUT BUTTER!), slided cucumber, crunchy ikan bilis, onion and telur kerbau (sunny side up). Everything sandwiched in charcoal bun.
I know this shot looks a bit geli, but the queue was crazy long at myBurgerLab Sunway and we didn’t want to be late for our movie. We ate like monsters and I didn’t really put much effort in getting a nice clean clear shot of a half eaten Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang Burger. Heh. Sorry!
My thoughts on the Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang Burger..
At first I thought the peanut butter would be odd, but it turned out quite alright. I can taste it in some bites, and not so much in other bites, which is alright. I don’t think I would want too much in my nasi lemak burger. A little sweet nutty taste actually turned out to be a good blend to the overall taste. The patty was huge! And has a nice juicy tender flesh. I thought that was really good. Satisfying. The ikan bilis was indeed very crunchy. The only thing I didn’t really like was that the Rendang was too salty. The taste itself was yummy – like most rendang, but it was too salty. I felt like I really NEED water after every couple bites. They were also very generous with their rendang and sambal, which didn’t help. Too much of something may not be too good after all. The egg is great too with the mata kerbau. I love it when the yolk flows out (I’m biased to mata kerbaus).
All in all, I’d say it was alright. Would be good to try out if you like rendang. For me, I probably won’t have it again.. I’ll still stick to my favourite Beautiful Mess (which also has a mata kerbau).
Yummy yummy in my tummy!
My gloriously beautiful Beautiful Mess.
I love myBurgerLab Sunway’s staff. They are all so friendly and nice for every visit that I am there. I’ve also heard wonderful things about other myBurgerLab branch staffs. They’re all a nice friendly happy bunch. So do visit them, try their burgers, have a Beautiful Mess.
