Many Singaporeans were waiting in great anticipation for McDonald’s new Salted Egg York Burger. After all, a popular site gave the burger a solid 5/7, and said that the burger would give any zi char stall auntie a run for the money.

But many hearts were broken (including mine) when Singaporeans finally got their hands on the supposedly epic burger.

One word.


I wondered if my taste buds were off, so I went to check out McDonald’s FB page to see if the burger received other solid 5/7 reviews from netizens.

Turns out, my taste buds are working fine… cause many angry Singaporeans were flooding McDonald’s FB page with bad reviews.

For example:




Straits Times gave an honest review, saying that the “salted egg york taste is somewhat lacking… needs more kick.”

Well, we agree!

The greater the hype, the bigger the disappointment.

We hope that McDonald’s will take customer feedback seriously, and spam the salted egg york sauce in their burgers. Till then, I will be sticking with the salted egg dishes in my neighbourhood zi char stall.
