The Nasi Lemak burger has met it’s match. With the current craze of adding local food to an easy-to-eat form of a burger, the Char Kway Teow burger does not seem like an unlikely idea. Unfortunately for Singaporeans, we would have to go across the causeway to have a taste.
It all started when Malaysia questioned our local McDonald’s creation of Nasi Lemak burger, raising questions like where is the rice in the burger (of course we all know the buns are supposed to be replacement for the rice). Not long after, they have created their own nasi lemak burger from Kuala Lumpur’s MyBurgerLab.
Grub, a shop located in Petaling Jaya, saw the possibilities and created the Char Kway Teow burger. In it contains fishcake, cockles, chilli, beansprouts (taugeh), salted duck egg yolk and halal bak kwa (also known as dendeng).
For those who frequent a trip across the border to fulfill their cravings, would this be one of the things to try?
