McDonald’s® serves up locally-inspired menu that will make Singaporeans go Sedap!

As we count down to National Day, McDonald’s Singapore is launching a delicious menu selection that puts a modern spin on traditional local favourites.

Adding to its variety of iconic burgers and desserts that Singaporeans love, McDonald’s is celebrating the diverse local food heritage with a creative touch to whet local appetites. Familiar local fare that Singaporeans grew up eating such as Nasi Lemak, Bandung and Chendol form the inspiration behind the new limited-time menu, launched in conjunction with the Singapore Food Festival (SFF) 2017.

This year, McDonald’s is a partner of the annual festival organised by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) which celebrates our local, multi-ethnic food heritage, ranging from hawker fare to contemporary dining.

“As a brand that’s deeply woven into the fabric of Singapore, we wanted to pay homage to our traditional local fare in conjunction with the launch of the Singapore Food Festival 2017. We have given a modern twist to familiar local favourites which includes the “Nasi Lemak” Burger – and hope Singaporeans will be thrilled to unravel the local flavours in our exciting menu line-up, as we come together to celebrate National Day soon,” said Agatha Yap, Senior Director of Marketing, Menu and Digital Innovation, Hanbaobao Pte Ltd (licensee of McDonald’s Singapore).

“We are delighted that McDonald’s, a brand with a large fan base in Singapore, is on board with us as a partner for the Singapore Food Festival 2017. With this year’s theme being ‘Savour Singapore in Every Bite’, we are particularly excited by the introduction of McDonald’s locally-inspired menu, which will feature flavours well-loved by generations of Singaporeans who grew up eating them.  This will further pique the curiosity of both locals and visitors about SFF, which is still the only event in Singapore dedicated to showcasing local food and local talent,” said Ranita Sundramoorthy, Director, Attractions, Dining & Retail, STB.

From small beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, T2 Tea has taken the traditional art of tea, turned it on its head then taken it to the world. Now with over 20 years of brewing under their belts, T2 has gone from a single store on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy to over 75 stores worldwide across Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and the United States.

Their unique take on the ancient brew combines traditional recipes with a modern twist.

Offering a world of unique blends, matcha, and iced teas to sample and purchase, T2 gives tea lovers the chance to buy unique teawares and brewing tools to make the perfect cuppa at home or the office.

In true T2 style, they’ve also come up with a blend to celebrate their arrival in Singapore – the Singapore Breakfast! Reminiscent of kaya toast, Singapore Breakfast is a mix of puerh, GMC, coconut and pandan that sings with richly sweet, toasty and coconut-y flavours. Heavenly when served alongside the real deal, this brew is the ultimate ode to Singapore’s beloved national breakfast.
