McDonald’s Mala Burger

I went to try the new spicy burgers from McDonald’s. It rated the McSpicy burger as level 2 spiciness and so I was curious how the level 3 (Green Curry Chicken Burger) and 4 (Mala Chicken Burger) would taste it. Being a person who loves spicy food, McSpicy is like “McNormal” to me.

See the picture of the Mala Burger on the box? Keep scrolling down and I shall show you how deceiving pictures can be.

That’s the description of the the burger. Sounded so exciting. =___=”

McDonalds Mala Burger 2

And here’s the burger. See the heap of veggies falling out of the burger, and the tiny piece of chicken in comparison to the buns.
First of all, the chicken tastes alright. Just a peppery version of Chicken McGrill with little bit of numbing effect to the lips. Portion of chicken is too small, almost like kid’s meal. I mean, isn’t it bad enough that Fillet O Fish is only left with half a slice of cheese, and now McD is shrinking the chicken too? If this goes on, we might as well have McVeggies topped with bits of chicken.

As for the green curry burger, don’t even bother trying. The dry fried chicken fillet with a tiny bit of green curry paste is not worth trying at all.

Kinda disappointed with this new creation. I still think that McD did a better job with the Prosperity burger.

The Queen & Mangosteen

During Vday last month, we went to The Queen & Mangosteen for dinner. A lot of places were fully booked and we didn’t want to pay huge amount for food that doesn’t deserve that pricing, so we decided to go for a normal restaurant without a Vday menu.

The restaurant was full and service was slightly slower than usual. However, the manager was very professional, and went around checking that everyone was taken care of, and apologised for the slow service.

Pimm's Lemonade

Drinks were served while we waited for the food. I had the Pimm’s & lemonade which was 1 for 1 during happy hours ($14++). It was really good and refreshing. Pakcik went for the archipelago beer ($12++).

mussels

bread

For starter, we had the fresh mussels in white cream sauce ($18++). Both of us really love the cream sauce. It’s so flavorful, rich, but not jerlat. Tasted so good when dipped with bread and fries. We refused to let the waiter clear the bowl because we wanted to keep the sauce for fries.

Fish & chips

I had the Snapper Fish & Chips ($24++). Actually this picture doesn’t really show the actual size of the fish. The fish was much thicker than it looks here. I couldn’t finish both pieces and had to give one of them to Pakcik. The batter was thin and crispy, and the snapper fillets was so tender and juicy. The chunky fries was best eaten with the cream sauce from the mussels.
Homemade curry tartare was served with the Fish & Chips, but I prefer the cream sauce. =)

Wagyu Burger

Pakcik went for the King’s Burger ($28++). It came with 200gm of Wagyu beef patty, swiss cheese, caramelised onions and veggies. The burger is pretty good except that Pakcik had it medium-well and so the patty was a bit tough. Sigh… Who on earth would eat a medium-well wagyu beef? I find it such a waste.

Anyway, it was nice dining in this restaurant and I will definitely ask for the bay-side table next time.

Blooie’s Roadhouse @ Rail Mall

Pakcik was too greedy in the evening and ate 3 slices of Swiss roll while I was painting. By dinner time, he was too full to eat. So I only ordered 1 burger and beer to share. Luckily I did that because the burger is pretty huge.

The Blooie’s Sloppy Chilli Burger ($16.90++) contains a 180gm tasty patty. It is a bit dry on its own but this issue is easily solved by eating it with the chilli sauce and tomato. I like the well seasoned chunky fries too! The portion is huge for ladies, so I would suggest sharing. I saw the other lady finishing only half of the burger.
