This time round, attention to all seafood lovers, I’m pretty sure their newly launched items are made FOR YOU – Ebi burger, fish dippers and seaweed shaker fries. So much sea. Very ocean.
Their tag line is “Ebi is back” but wait.. I really don’t remember when was the last time they had ebi burger. BUT the previous time I had when I was over at Japan! They had ebi burger with super good plum shaker fries! Had this for breakfast on my last morning over at Tokyo and I remembered how chunky and generous the shrimps were within the battered exterior.
Of course, I knew I had to try the ebi burger when it was out in Singapore a couple of days ago! To my surprise, it came in an EXTREMELY adorable box. LOOK. AT. THAT.
Comparing the patty with that of Japan’s, this was already lacking by a little. The burger is flatter and with very high hopes, I took a mouthful of the burger and… Eh? Where the shrimp at? Unlike the ones from Japan which was stuffed full of shrimps with every bite, this one only had the crunchy shrimps congregated in the centre of the patty. Not too bad only when you reach the middle, other wise it is mostly like flour, thousand island and vegetables. Not bad lah, I was easily contented with the ebis at the middle of the burger.
My favorite part of the meal was surprisingly the fish dippers. I’ve never tried fish dippers before, and when I took the first bite of this, I couldn’t stop stuffing the little fishes into my my mouth, and I do still have cravings for them right now.
- It’s super adorable with the fish shape
- The best damn description I can give? It’s the fillet o fish fish shaped into bite sized versions. Dip it into the tar tar sauce and omg, tears of happiness. Very nice and very juicy. I APPROVE.
I honestly think that this was one of the best promos that McDonald’s have came up with. Where was I when the previous versions of ebi burger and fish burger were out?! If you haven’t tried them, you HAVE to. You can choose to skip the ebi burger, BUT fish dippers, you must.
I don’t know when the promo is going to end, but I wish it never does.
