McDonald’s Singapore’s has a new Christmas festive menu, which I tried with the courtesy of omy Blog Club, which I tried at Dhoby Ghaut Plaza Singapura.
The Beef and Chicken Clubhouse Burger was a grilled beef patty or grilled chicken thigh burger in McDonald’s with lettuce, a slice of white cheddar cheese and tomato. The differentiating features are the two pieces of ‘bacon’ (they call it chicken bacon strips, which tastes very interesting – I suppose they have to keep it Halal…), caramelised onions, mustard sauce and a soft shiny glazed bun. Overall it was a solid burger and the caramelised onions and mustard was nostalgia of the typical Aussie Barbies back home. I enjoyed the beef burger more than the chicken one, whereas my boyfriend prefers the chicken one because it was succulent and a whole chunk of chicken instead of mince.
The burger was accompanied with Truffle Flavoured Shaker Fries (from $3.25), which are plain fries with the Truffle flavoured powder to shake shake shake. It was more of the truffle smell (which wafted throughout the whole restaurant) than the taste which was a bit underwhelming. It tasted a bit like the seaweed shaker fries but without the seaweed, and a bit of truffle smell.
Coke Float (from $2.90) is coca cola with McDonald’s soft serve as a topping which provided a refreshing treat.
The Red Velvet McFlurry with Oreo Cookie Bits ($2.90) was nice! I mean I have always loved cookies and cream PLUS red velvet so it was a great match in my opinion… But as typical of McFlurries it was very sweet, good thing I asked for less red velvet powder.
Each Clubhouse Extra Value Meal, which includes a Grilled Chicken Clubhouse Burger or Beef Clubhouse Burger, French Fries (M), and a glass of Coca Cola, is available at $8.60. Top up 80 cents to upgrade to Truffle Flavoured Shaker Fries and a Coke Float (S).
You can also choose swap your fries for a corn cup at no extra charge, or top up $1.20 to change to a Garden Side Salad (comprising of lettuce, red and white cabbage, crunchy carrots, corn kernels and tomatoes, served with a Japanese dressing).
By the way I had the Coke Float and Red Velvet McFlurry on separate days shared with my makan buddy; as I would not recommend taking so much sugar in one go!
All the promotional items will be available in restaurants islandwide from 26 November, while stocks last.
