Nasi Lemak Burger

How Does It Taste: Not bad, really. We skipped the queue by going via drive-thru, and our car was immediately flooded with the familiar fragrance of Nasi Lemak, which just whet our appetites. Were we disappointed? Not really- the flavour was quite authentic, though the sambal could have been abit more hotter, and one wonders why they didn't try doing this burger with a rice patty ala Mos Burger instead. 4/5

Sugar, sugar, sugar. To be fare, this is dessert. But is it really optional in this instance? You know it's almost impossible to resist. Visually, pretty legit- we could see the chendol jelly bits and gula melaka sauce.. though both were abit sparing. Would have been even more awesome if there was more of both, really. 3/5

We read somewhere before we took a bite that this was filled with nata de coco.. which didn't sound very platable. But then after chowing down we realized it was chockful of coconut sauce.. and man was that rich and flavourful. It would have been even more awesome if it was real coconut meat in the pie... but then it would have probably raised the cost beyond their usual pie prices as well. 4/5

Watching the counterstaff prepare this, we realized that it was simply just rose syrup and sprite. Hardly the most inventive of drinks- and the taste showed. But then again, bundung really is just rose syrup as well, so we couldn't say this drink didn't taste unauthentic. Just pretty underwhelming. 2/5
