21.08.2019 by LadyAlly
Leading up to Merdeka and Malaysia Day celebration, McDonald’s Malaysia decided to embrace its local nickname, Mekdi. Being a localised nickname for McD, pronounced as ‘Mekdi’, this localised signage has been displayed at McDonald’s Bukit Bintang, the very first restaurant in Malaysia back in 1982.
In celebration of all things Malaysian this month, McDonald’s Malaysia has also introduced Nasi Lemak McD, its own version of a dish beloved by so many Malaysians. This meal comes complete with fragrant coconut rice, crispy anchovies, fresh cucumber, and fried egg, topped with spicy sambal. Customers can also maximise their meal experience by adding on Ayam Goreng McD and a cup of Iced Lemon Tea.
Believe it or not, McDonald’s Malaysia has also initiated a nationwide petition Change.org to rally for Nasi Lemak to be officially recognised as the national dish of Malaysia, with a target of gathering 1 million signatures by Malaysia Day (16 September). If you want to be part of this movement, don’t be shy and just head over to this link to get this yummilicious dish formally be known as Malaysia’s National Dish.
Nasi Lemak McD is now available in all McDonald’s Malaysia restaurants nationwide and will be a permanent item on McDonald’s menu, available 24 hours a day. The Nasi Lemak McD set is only RM5.99 during breakfast hours and is served with an Iced Milo. During regular hours, the set is priced at RM12.99 with 1 piece of Ayam Goreng McD and an Iced Lemon Tea, while it is RM15.99 for 2 pieces of Ayam Goreng McD and an Iced Lemon Tea.
