  • (rock music)

  • Me and Annie are gonna try Singaporean McDonalds for the very first time.

  • We didn't know what to order, so we asked our friends over here, Sylvia and Aiken.

  • Hola!

  • So I think you should try the Nasi Lemak burger.

  • This is basically everything a Nasi Lemak is, but without the rice.

  • Oh, that's true.

  • I'm gonna show you the inside, which is beautiful.

  • Whoa! Do you see that steam?

  • I actually, I'm a little worried. Ready?

  • It's actually really good.

  • Kind of confusing though.

  • It's like slightly sour, which I like.

  • It's the sauce, right?

  • What do you call that sauce?

  • Sambal.

  • Sambal Belacan.

  • Sambal Belacan basically is like a very Asian tasting chili.

  • It's so juicy. That's insane.

  • I think the best part of this is the egg.

  • Yeah. Cucumber in a burger is weird though.

  • Our McSpicy is the best in the region because it is the spiciest.

  • Oh no.

  • We heard from our friends over here that the spiciness can have an impact on your digestive system in a strong way.

  • Why do they feel so substantial here?

  • Like it kinda looks like the promotional pictures.

  • (chuckles)

  • Okay, you guys hyped this up too much for me.

  • It's not that spicy.

  • My tongue's on fire.

  • Really? Does it get worse?

  • Yeah. It took like 20 seconds to start feeling the spice.

  • Yeah. It's pretty good.

  • It has a lot of flavor.

  • I will, I'll tell you tomorrow on how powerful this dish was to my system.

  • Maybe you shouldn't.

  • Wait. Ice cream break.

  • There's a little hack, apparently, here in Singapore.

  • If you order a McDelivery, you order ice cream so that they'll deliver it to you faster, hmm.

  • Oh, that tastes exactly like the American soft serve version.

  • (guitar music)

  • There's nothing in the world like this.

  • Very unique.

  • Now I'm scared.

  • Today we go for the hot curry sauce.

  • Oh! That is a color.

  • It does look like curry.

  • It's not bad.

  • It's like sweet and sour mixed with a curry powder and it has an interesting aftertaste.

  • It probably isn't my sauce of choice.

  • Oh, my god. Where my Singaporeans at?

  • Steve and Annie don't like curry sauce lah. (gasps)

  • (laughter)

  • We have the cheesy fries, which is new in our menu in our country.

  • I hope it's good.

  • (laughter)

  • It looks a little wimpy.

  • Okay, let's just do this.

  • When you eat fries at McDonald's, you gotta eat like 10 at a time.

  • Oh.

  • Oh.

  • Perfect.

  • Mmm.

  • But it's good.

  • Mm-hmm.

  • It's something you would get at a hot dog stand.

  • It does taste like a hot dog.

  • The fries are the exact same as they are in America.

  • You can't really go wrong when you have cheese, bacon.

  • How can you mess that up?

  • I wanna see what they think for the first time.

  • Well, it's quite nice.

  • Mm.

  • Right, although, you would just eat this part and they wouldn't do with the rest that has nothing.

  • I did not know what to expect.

  • I thought it would be the same.

  • It actually was better to do here.

  • Everything had a slight Asian flair to it.

  • An Asian flair in an actually Asian way.

  • Mm.

  • (upbeat guitar and violin music)

(rock music)
