McDonalds Malaysia – Spinach and Lychee Pie – review

I have to be extremely curious to step into a McDonalds.

And this time I was curious enough, since there are not one, but TWO (2) new items!

And both are “sides“, not main burgers. I had thought it was funny that 2 sides were introduced simultaneously.

Anyhow the reason to try the lychee pie was because of its name.
If you know Hokkien (specifically Hokkien foul words) or if you are a Malaysian who curse, you would have an idea of what “lychee pie” means when both words were spoken fast.

So after a long day of shoot and merely surviving on a salad box yesterday, I decided that it was a good time as any to clock up some calories.

So I walked into a McD at The Curve after my appointment and requested for both the Lychee and Spinach Pie.
One savoury, one sweet, that would be a nice balance, I had thought.

At first glance upon opening the package I knew it is not going to be good.
The pies were greasy and gosh, they looked pathetic!

I peeled the top layer off for a closer inspection of the fillings.

It looked bad and well, it tasted just as bad.
For the lychee one, the filling is a mess of gummy, starchy paste with bits of lychee flavoured nata de coco.
Nope, no actual lychees bits here.
The McD Lychee Pie is RM2.60 nett.

If you curious about the Spinach Pie (RM2.95 nett) as well & was tempted to try, well, lets just say that it a small, greasy puff filled with starchy, creamy mess with bits of green in it.

So, who is still curious to try these pies?

Well, if you are, both are available at most McD (check the FB page for details) within Klang Valley.
I’m not sure about other states in Malaysia.

    i must confess, i step into mcd’s and kfc every couple of months whenever they have new promos, so i had to try these too. but yeah, they were not up to mark … i didn’t even finish the lychee pie. the lychee sundae and mcflurry were a bit easier to eat cos of all the ice cream, but the flavouring sauce was still too artificial … like a chemical pretending to taste like a fruit … right now, kfc’s ayam masak merah wrap (which is quite tasty) wins! 😀 hopefully the next mcd’s promo will be a hit, though i think in recent years, kfc’s promos have had a stronger success ratio, even if it’s a bit unfair to compare burgers with fried chicken, heh 🙂 ok, i’ll stop here – you can see i’m quite passionate about mcd’s and kfc 😀

      Yes this is one of the longest comment you’ve ever written! 😛
      Ok I must admit I get intrigued as well!
      Did you managed to try the Ramadan wraps? 2 of them – the Lazeez and the Mashwi?
      I missed that! hahaha!

      And I’m a sucker for Mcds when I’m overseas – Thailand, Belgium, Australia… I always try to sneak out to a McD whenever I can during an overseas trip! 😛
