Macs doesn’t necessarily have to be super unhealthy. I’ve known that cup corn was on the menu for quite a while but never ordered it as my heart and tongue were always drawn to the golden fried hashbrown. A little win for self-discipline today in that I chose to order cup corn (3oz). Yay! I love corn but I hate having it on the cob because all the fibres end up stuck between my teeth and are super annoying. This saves you all the trouble while allowing you to feel slightly better about your cheat day. While the cup corn does come with a separate pack of butter, you don’t actually have to add the butter to have a delicious side dish so I recommend skipping the butter and saving yourself the calories! The corn kernels are already sweet and slightly savoury, making them a delightful and light side to go along with the McGriddles (or any other wonderfully yummy but unhealthy macs breakfast sets). Must try to practice more self restraint from now on and opt for the cup corn instead of hashbrowns!

Second time ordering macs within a week and that’s already more than I’ve ordered macs in the past 6 months but McGriddles is worth it. Note that advance delivery orders have to be placed at least 120 minutes ahead of desired delivery time and that order cutoffs for macs breakfast are at 10.30am. I placed the order for 5 McGriddles at 10.15am and they arrived at 11.20am so it was pretty good timing for lunch.

Not photogenic or aesthetic at all after being smushed in the delivery bag but who cares. Definitely recommend the McGriddles with sausage and egg so the egg can undercut the saltiness of the sausage and balance out the sweetness of the McGriddle buns. After taking a good look at my whole McGriddle out of the wrapper, I feel like it has actually shrunk a fair bit since McGriddles was a regular item menu years ago but maybe that’s just nostalgia and rose-tinted lenses clouding my memory. It’s still got the same (unhealthy, but great) taste that I’ve remembered all these years.

On a side note, not sure if macs has outsourced their delivery team to a company or something. On this delivery and the one last week, we had mainland Chinese riders who delivered the orders and we didn’t have particularly good experiences both times. Last week, the rider was ok but he might have jostled the delivery bag because about half the hot milo beverage ended up being spilt inside the plastic bag. Our encounter today was much more unpleasant. Received a rude phone call from the rider at 11.20am demanding (in mandarin) “where are you?”. He didn’t even bother to state he’s from McDonald’s so I was a little confused and taken aback that a random chinese male would call and demand my whereabouts. Upon meeting the driver near the collection point, he chided me for not giving clear instructions on the collection point by pointing to the delivery chit. I had clearly stated “Roundabout at ground floor” in my delivery address but the driver had so kindly taken it upon himself to enter the nearest building, approach the security guard counter to drop off the delivery and blame me when they didn’t accept the delivery. Seriously, is that even my fault? Maybe I should have written roundabout in mandarin too. After walking back up to our office, we discovered that one of the drinks we had ordered (Ribena) was missing. I called up the McDonald’s delivery hotline and thank goodness Ivan who answered was super polite and helpful. He arranged for the packet drink to be delivered to us with no hassle within the hour. So thanks very much Ivan, but I can’t say the same to our snowflake rider from this morning.

Bought this at the McDonalds near Yuan Ching Super Bowl. There wasn't much queue, at 12pm, bought it within 15 minutes. This burger tastes surprisingly good for a speciality burger. Nice sambal sauce, it's not that spicy and there could have been more sauce. This is more like a buy and try one time novelty thing. If I really want Nasi Lemak, I can go to Power Nasi Lemak at Boon Lay market and quite a bit of ingredients at $6.

The minions potatoes are totally adorable and tasty to eat! Banana pie is like our local goreng pisang.

While Singaporeans are still going gaga over the crave, it might just be short-lived as this limited time offer is just rocking the decent scale, definitely not mind-blowing. After hearing mixed reviews about the salted egg yolk being either too sweet or insufficient, we decided to give it a go together with the twister fries and banana pie.

Overall, the salted egg yolk sauce was, as reviewed by many, too sweet, but it was an interesting overall concept. The chicken patty could do with a bit more seasoning though.

As for the twister fries, it must have been watching "Honey, I shrunk the kids" movie too many times as it was disappointing because the portion seems to be lesser but price was still at a premium. The salt and pepper crab powder seasoning was just meh. The only saving grace was the banana pie.
