KUALA LUMPUR: All good things must come to an end, so is the case with the famous Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang (NLAR) burger which is set to be phased out in January next year.
Created by homegrown burger joint, myBurgerLab, the burger was a hit when it was introduced in August 2017.
It was supposed to stay on the menu until the end of August the same year but foodies just could not get enough of it.
Realising that it has become a sort of a phenomena, the burger joint decided that NLAR should stay, until further notice.
Besides its salted egg yolk burger, Ultraman 3.0, the NLAR has been the outlet's best seller since last year.
The NLAR burger comes with a Thai-style fried chicken as patty, some sambal, peanut butter (to replace fried peanuts), pickles (to replace cucumber), a sunny side up egg, rendang sauce and chopped fried anchovies, along with myBurgerLab’s signature charcoal bun.
The idea for the burger came after the release of ‘Nasi Lemak Burger’ by McDonald’s in Singapore to celebrate its National Day on August 9.
Inspired by it and due to countless Facebook tags by fellow Malaysians, myBurgerLab decided to develop its own version of the burger.
One might suspect that the burger would not bring out the true 'nasi lemak' flavours, but those who have tried it said it does taste like 'nasi lemak' even with one bite of the burger.
To those who have yet to try out this amazing burger, head over to any of the myBurgerLab outlets before the New Year and be part of the craze!
