10 Delicious Fast Food Items You Can Only Order in Malaysia

McDonald’s and other outlets have taken Malaysia’s reputation for delicious food to the next level. Rather than a double cheeseburger with Coke, you can get a Nasi Lemak burger and a green tea McFlurry as fast food in Malaysia. Here are our mouth-watering favourites.

Loved by over 40s

Nasi Lemak Burger

Malaysia’s national dish is a Southeast Asian favourite found in both Malaysia and Singapore. Fast-food giant McDonald’s has expanded on this delicious treat by creating the Nasi Lemak Burger. Rather than serving it on a banana leaf vendor-style, they’ve transformed the dish into a burger. The burger includes a succulent chicken thigh and a fried egg with spicy sambal sauce inside a crispy chilli bun.

Pulut Hitam Pie

For a local-style dessert, order Pulut Hitam Pie from almost any branch of McDonald’s in Malaysia. The sticky black glutinous rice popular with street vendors is used as a filling inside a crispy pie. Instead of coming in a bowl, Pulut Hitam Pie has an aromatic crust promising an explosion of flavours after taking the first bite.

Cendol-Flavoured Ice Cream

Malaysia and Singapore have an obsession with the green, jelly-like cendol. With several types in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, it can sometimes be challenging to choose which one to have. As a tourist looking to sample as many local delicacies as possible, we recommend ordering the cendol-flavoured ice cream as an introduction before trying other variations.

Bandung McFizz

The pink Bandung drink found in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei consists of either condensed or evaporated milk mixed with rose cordial syrup. A favourite among the Malay communities and popular during Ramadan, Bandung has made its way onto the menu of some of Malaysia’s fast food chains. McDonald’s Bandung McFizz goes down well with a Nasi Lemak Burger.

D24 Durian McFlurry

The King of Fruit is a common sight as vendors sell pieces of durian from stalls along the side of the road. But only in Malaysia do they make their favourite fruit into a Mcflurry. Picture the creamy durian blended and swirled with vanilla and chocolate bits into a tasty, thick drink. Not everyone likes the fruit and ordering a durian Mcflurry at McDonald’s can be a gentle introduction to its unique taste.

Jagung-Flavoured Sundae Cone

The corn-flavoured sundae cone costing just RM2.50 ($0.60 USD) is becoming a trending dessert in Malaysia. Today, certain branches of McDonald’s stock Jagung cones in and around Kuala Lumpur. The cheap snack served as creamy yellow ice cream inside a pink cone is perfect on a hot day. Ask any local for their favourite fast food in Malaysia and most will say this sundae.

Cakoi Bubur Set

McDonald’s cakoi bubur set is a favourite type of fast food in Malaysia for breakfast. Cakoi refers to a Chinese-style fried breadstick while Bubur is rice porridge. The set, served from 4am until 11am, comes as one cakoi, one small porridge and a cup of hot soy milk.

Burger Syok

The mouth-watering Burger Syok is among our favourite fast food in Malaysia. A grilled chicken thigh gets placed between two toasted sesame seed buns. The bun then baths in a spicy Syok sauce before being topped with fresh vegetables. Order on its own or with fries. Anticipate the burst of flavours after biting into the blend of succulent chicken and hot sauce.

Green Tea Mcflurry

Another favourite fast food in Malaysia: Green Tea McFlurry. Malaysians have a bit of an obsession with tea and McDonald’s takes advantage by turning it into a Mcflurry. Expect a thick creamy green topping with strong hints of the Japanese-style tea in a small tub. For just a few ringgits, this is a great way to cool down in the afternoon.

Green Tea McFlurry

Milo Mcflurry

Another Mcflurry inspired by a favourite Malaysian drink. Milo is a powdered hot chocolate drink served either warm or with ice and drank through a straw. The fast-food version mixes Milo and ice cream creating a delicious Mcflurry treat topped with cereal chunks.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
