“We are excited to introduce this improved recipe to satisfy our customers’ cravings and we hope Malaysians will now enjoy this dish more than ever.”

To complement this new item in the menu, customers can indulge in a range of desserts, such as Caramel Cream Cheese Pie and Salted Caramel McFlurry, or --- for a limited time --- McNuggets dipping sauces, namely French Cheese and Honey Mustard.
