Cereal prawn burger with sweet potato fries, anyone?

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 at 6:17 pm

Over the past few years, two dishes have increasingly gained popularity and are becoming common menu items in Singapore eateries – Cereal prawn dishes and sweet potato fries.

The former is perhaps a more common fare at zi char stalls, while the latter appears to be more of a recent addition to hipster café menus.

Sweet Potato Fries... Sweet Potato Fries everywhere...

Sweet Potato Fries... Sweet Potato Fries everywhere...

From this Thursday (3 Sept), you’ll get to have the best of both worlds as McDonald’s introduces its brand new Cereal Ebi burger that comes with crispy sweet potato fries.


The burger


The Cereal Ebi burger boasts of patties made with whole shrimps that are coated in crunchy cereal, coupled with a spicy shrimp paste flavoured sauce, served with crispy whole-leaf lettuce in between soft white sesame and chive buns.

The Special

To make your McDonald’s Ebi experience a truly flavourful one, you can order the Cereal Ebi Special set which includes a single patty Cereal Ebi burger, crispy sweet potato fries (M) and a refreshing Coca-cola (S), starting from $7.45.

During this period, McDonald’s has also introduced a new Honeydew McFlurry that would wrap up your Ebi-kase experience nicely. This is available from $2.90.

As with the other extra value meals at McDonald’s, you can also choose to swap your fries for a corn cup at no extra charge, or top up $1.20 to change your side to a Garden Side Salad comprising whole leaf lettuce, red and white cabbage, crunchy carrots, corn kernels and tomatoes, served with a light Japanese dressing.

The Cereal Ebi, Sweet Potato Fries and Honeydew McFlurry will be available from 3 September while stocks last. Ebi fans will also be delighted to know that there will be a second part to the delicious Ebi-kase menu launching on 17 September, so keep a look out for that!
