McDonald’s Singapore has a Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger and other local favourite inspired menu items! Confirm Shiok!
So basically, McDonald’s Singapore created new menu items with a local twist in their new menu ‘Confirm Shiok!’. ‘Shiok’ is commonly used in Malaysia & Singapore. I am not too sure of the origin of this word but it is essentially used to convey a feeling of sheer pleasure and happiness. Like, if you really enjoyed a particular dish, you would say “Wow! This dish damn SHIOK, man!”. I know it’s not proper English, but each country has their own slang.
I was in Singapore last weekend to check out the Pokemon Cafe and saw this new McDonald’s menu going viral online. Needless to say, I had to at least try it while I was there.
- So based on the poster, you can see that there are six menu items:
1. Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger
2. Twist & Shake Fries
3. Spicy Nuggets
5. Banana Pie
6. Gula Melaka McFlurry with Layer Cake Bites
I only got a few items because I wasn’t a fan of the Banana Pie and the Gula Melaka McFlurry with Layer Cake Bites didn’t call to me. So here’s what I tried.
Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger (SDG$5.75 a la carte / SDG$7.50 with value meal)
It’s a chicken burger topped with salted egg yolk sauce and some curry leaves. Although mine only had a couple of leaves. The first bite was good, but it got sort of bland after a few bites. The sauce tasted a little more sweet than salty though. Not really sure I’d try this again.
Twist & Shake Fries with Salt & Pepper Crab Flavour (SDG3.40 a la carte / additional SGD0.60 with every value meal)
Twister fries!! I usually have to wait all year for Chinese New Year to come around for the festive menu to eat it. Crispy, golden curly fries dusted with salt and pepper crab flavoured shaker. I’m not sure how this is supposed to taste like crab but the fries were good and more salty because of the extra flavour. It was the best of the bunch. Fries make me happy!
Spicy Nuggets (SGD$4.45 a la carte / SGD6.05 with value meal)
Basically nuggets with some spices in them to make them hot. It does say “Hot Stuff Cannot Bluff”. It takes a while, but you do feel the spiciness. I tried the new curry sauce and I kind of like it. It’s not the spicy kind but more of the sweet curry.
So I wouldn’t really say that this meal was “Confirm Shiok” but it was worth a try but probably not worth a second. Except the fries. Fries is love. If you’re interested to try them or you’ve already tried them, do leave a comment below to let us know what you think. Confirm Shiok boh?
