When it first opened back in 1982, McDonald’s quickly became one of the most celebrated F&B establishments in Malaysia.
In celebration of Merdeka and Hari Malaysia, McDonald’s Malaysia celebrated its 37 years of being Malaysian by embracing its local nickname – Mekdi!
The first Mekdi branch opened in 1982 that stands in Bukit Bintang, now prominently displays the ‘Mekdi’ sign. A nod to local colloquialism.
Almost everyone loves a good Double Cheeseburger or Ayam Goreng McD and to be honest, we feel Mekdi has unofficially become our soul food. Thank you ‘merica!
Merdeka is just a few days away and to celebrate all things Malaysian this month, Mekdi Malaysia also introduced their version of the nasi lemak.
Nasi Lemak McD, which contains everything a nasi lemak should – fragrant white rice, fried egg, crispy anchovies, fresh cucumber, sambal – adds on to their successful Ayam Goreng McD as localised products.
Recently, Mekdi recognised how Malaysians love their nasi lemak and in true Malaysian spirit, they’ve initiated a nationwide petition to crown Nasi Lemak as Malaysia’s official dish. The target is 1 million signatures by 16 September 2019 on Malaysia Day. You can join the petition here.
