SINGAPORE: Fans of McDonald's Nasi Lemak burger will no longer be able to get their fix, after the fast-food chain announced on Tuesday (Jul 25) that it was sold out islandwide, less than two weeks after it was first launched.
Other limited-edition items such as the Chendol McFlurry and Bandung McFizz have also sold out, McDonald's said in a press release in which it thanked Singaporeans for their "overwhelming support".
The burger was launched as part of a special menu inspired by local favourites ahead of Singapore's National Day.
However, the chain also announced that from Wednesday it would be launching a new limited-edition item - the Eggcellent McSpicy. The new twist on the original McSpicy will feature spicy chicken thigh with a fresh golden fried egg, it said.
A new Dinosaur McFlurry will also be available, and both items will be on sale for a limited time, the fast-food chain added.
McDonald's also said that as part of NS50 celebrations, all past and present National Servicemen can get a free apple pie or hot fudge sundae with every Extra Value Meal purchased (after breakfast hours) from Aug 4 to Aug 10.
Eligible customers have to present their SAFRA Card, 11B or Pink IC to redeem their treat.
