Singapore’s McDonald’s outlet recently unveiled their Nasi Lemak Burgers which quickly sent Malaysians on a rant about wanting Nasi Lemak Burgers in our homeland too. Well, 3 local restaurants heard their people’s cries as they too came up with their very own version of the famed burger. So, if you’re craving for a Malaysian twist on the viral burgers, you can head on over to these 3 KL restaurants and try it out for yourself!

In conjunction with the month of Merdeka, Bowery Petit has introduced the Nasi Lemak Burger, also known as the NLB. Each burger comes with a juicy piece of chicken thigh coated in an aromatic coconut milk-laced batter and fried to golden perfection. It is paired with a sweet-spicy sambal sauce and topped off with a telur mata kerbau, ikan bilis and kacang. This is served between a pair of homemade butter brioche buns and a serving of fries.

Define:Food’s take on the Nasi Lemak Burger was in fact inspired by the OG nasi lemak auntie who sells her nasi lemak by the roadside. Their version consists of the basics like an Ayam Goreng Berempah, a creamy sambal sauce, cucumber slices with Telur Mata Kerbau on top and Kacang and Ikan Bilis on the side. The dish is even served on top of a classic green banana leaf.
