There are only 2 reasons for me to walk into a McDonald’s; (1) I’m a tourist in another country and I’m checking out their local McD’s for something unique, or (2) there is new McDonald’s product launched in Malaysia.
Rest assured I’m not an advocate of Mcdonald’s or any of its food.
For Malaysia the previous Lychee Pie was disappointing, and so was the Spinach Pie.
I didn’t managed to try the Foldover Mashwi and Foldover Lazeez last year so I had to have my curiosity satisfied this year.
And you know what?
I wish I wasn’t the curious sort.
Yes, my expression says it all.
Take a look at the images and I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.
Foldover Mashwi – “filled with tender grilled beef topped with a unique hot sauce. Both are served wrapped in a warm, toasted flatbread along with crisp lettuce, crunchy onions and juicy tomatoes.”
What I got:
Dry beef patties that are obviously the SAME beef patties for the other McD burgers, a squirt of bland sauce and the vegetables as per description.
Foldover Lazeez – “filled with juicy chicken and garlic sauce“.
What I got:
The whole foldover is essentially the same as the Grilled Chicken Foldover that was sold before. Or at least it tasted that way to me.
The Mashwi was RM12.50 + 6% and the Lazeez was RM10.95 +.
To say it is an expensive disappointment is putting it mildly!
We tried the Bubur Cha Cha Pie (RM3.50) too.
It was frankly, just sweet coconut cream with tiny cubes of yam.
It took some effort to the yam cubes too.
We had our meal at the Mid Valley McDonald’s, which sadly didn’t have the Cendol Sundae that we wanted.
EDIT: We managed to try it!
It was awful by the way, just brown-colored sundae with no taste of gula melaka (if it was intended to be so) and the green cone has no flavourings whatsoever.
Anyways, this is how the McFlurry & Sundae Mata Kucing dan Pai Bubur Cha Cha is supposed to look like.
But as we know, “photos are for illustrations purposes only” right?
Our Sundae Mata Kuching – RM3.95+.
So, what do YOU about McDonald’s latest offerings?
Have you tried them? Did you like it?
