McDonald's Malaysia introduces new twist to Ramadan menu favourites



This Ramadan, McDonald’s Malaysia continues to offer exciting taste experiences through their special Ramadan menu, for Malaysians to enjoy with their families and friends. This includes the new Crispy Fish Foldover and Ayam Goreng McD with Sweet and Spicy Sauce.

According to Melati Abdul Hai, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of McDonald’s Malaysia, the introduction of these two new menu items is part of McDonald’s Malaysia’s ongoing commitment in providing exciting menu options during Ramadan that offers different tastes and flavours.

Throughout the month, fish lovers will have the option of enjoying the Crispy Fish Foldover – with a crispy golden fish patty, topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and slivered onions with a dash of special sauce all wrapped up in a warm toasted flatbread. Served with French Fries and Iced Lemon Tea, it will prove to be a hearty and satisfying meal for buka puasa. On top of that, the all-time favourite Grilled Chicken Foldover is making a tasty comeback.

“The Grilled Chicken Foldover has always been a customer favourite, and it was such a hit when we re-introduced it last year that it only makes sense to fulfil customers’ demand for a new variant by launching the fish version,” added Melati.

Additionally, Ayam Goreng McD lovers can also look forward to enjoying it a whole new way with a delicious Sweet and Spicy Sauce that will give their meal an extra punch of flavour. The all-time favourite Nasi Lemak McD will complete the Ramadan spread, as it satisfies cravings not just for those fasting but that of every Malaysian.

“The start of Ramadan this year will fall during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period, and whilst Malaysians adjust to this, we want to continue bringing joy to Malaysians through our food throughout Ramadan. Even under these challenging circumstances, McDonald’s Malaysia will continue to serve Malaysians with new and exciting menu offerings via our convenient McDelivery and Drive Thru channels, that will be a nice addition to their buka puasa feast,” said Melati.

Customers can sweeten their buka puasa with McDonalds’ wide range of new desserts and coffee flavours this Ramadan. The Banana Chocolate Pie is a new addition, with the combination of both tasty chocolate and aromatic banana filling set in a crispy chocolate crust. Coffee lovers will not be disappointed, as McCafe will be introducing new Kurma drinks with real Kurma extract, which are perfect to be enjoyed throughout Ramadan: Iced Kurma, Iced Kurma Latte, and Iced Kurma Milk.

The Grilled Chicken Foldover and Crispy Fish Foldover are each available at RM16.99, complete with medium French Fries and medium Iced Lemon Tea. The 2-piece set for Ayam Goreng McD with Sweet and Spicy sauce is available at RM15.49, while the 3-piece set is available at RM20.24.

Meanwhile, the Nasi Lemak McD set with 1 piece of Ayam Goreng McD is priced at RM12.99, and the 2-piece set is priced at RM15.99.

The Grilled Chicken Foldover and Crispy Fish Foldover are both available now for a limited time only, while the Ayam Goreng McD with Sweet and Spicy Sauce will be available starting 24 April.

These menu items will be available for takeaway at selected McDonald’s restaurants, as well as Drive-Thru and McDelivery service.
