Actor/singer-turned-chef Nicholas Tse (), also known as his alter ego Chef le Mon, has been invited by McDonald’s to create a signature menu of hamburgers and desserts for McDonald’s Hong Kong!

This marks the 2nd time Nicholas collaborate with McDonald’s. Last year, the celebrity chef made a special menu for McDonald’s China where he created a spicy chicken burger named after him. The burger consisted of teppanyaki style chicken meat smothered in a combination of Sichuan spicy sauce and a Vietnamese chili paste, and sandwiched between 2 squid ink burger buns.

The 38-year-old also came out with a large variety of such as a coffee milk tea flavoured sundae and a McFlurry with Nicholas’ own brand of cookies mixed in, tart lemon and pineapple pies, French fries with honey mustard and sea salt lemon soda.

It is not known if the Hong Kong menu will have the same menu as the one in China, but according to Jayne Stars, the Hong Kong collaboration will draw inspiration from many of his favourite classic Hong Kong foods.

Let’s hope that the menu will come to McDonald’s Malaysia as well 😉

FamilyMart Malaysia recently introduced their new Murasaki Sweet Potato Cheesecake Sofuto ice cream. Guess what? McDonald’s Malaysia also has a selection of new Coffee Ice Creams.

The new addition was apparently added to the menu yesterday (Monday, 1st October). This is certainly a welcome surprise for coffee and dessert lovers.

This gets better! You can either get it in a cone or in a cup. The Coffee Cone Ice Cream comes in 3 options – Coffee, Coffee & Vanilla, or Coffee with ChocoTop. The first 2 cost RM2.40 while the latter cost RM3.40. For those opting for the cup, you can pair your Coffee Sundae with chocolate or salted caramel.

Previously, the fast food chain had sold various flavours such as corn, strawberry, durian, blueberry, green tea and more. What other flavours do wish McDonald’s Malaysia would introduce to local foodies?

Tired of eating the same old burger? KFC Malaysia has a new “it” thing and it’s called the Zinger Waffle Burger.

The Zinger Waffle Burger is a unique take on the popular KFC Zinger burger and the tasty treat is such generous stack of deliciousness! Trust us, if you’re a fast food lover, this new Zinger Waffle Burger will be right up your alley.

Instead of the standard burger buns, you’ll get thick fluffy premium Belgian Waffles sandwiching the spicy KFC Zinger fillet and crispy chicken strips. The delicate golden Maple syrup and KFC mayo sauce provides a complimentary taste that enhances the overall flavour. It’s both fluffy yet crunchy at the same time. The Zinger Waffle Burger is best consumed when it’s warm.

We know that today’s generation appreciates a little adventure when it comes to food and this inspiration has led to this big burger concept that is both indulgent and differentiated. It is not just another quick-on-the-go format as it is loaded with everything that makes for a lavish and satisfying eat. You wouldn’t want to miss it,” said Ling Mee Jiuan, Chief Operating Officer of KFC Malaysia.

The Zinger Waffle Burger is available at KFC Delivery and all KFC restaurants nationwide from today (Tuesday, 2nd October) onwards. You can either opt for the a la carte (RM13.50), combo meal (comes with crispier fries and pepsi), or Mega box meal (comes with chicken, crispier fries and pepsi).

Beard Brothers’ BBQ Debuts New Concept Store Specialising In Sandwiches At Tiffin https://hype.my/2018/159711/beard-brothers-bbq-debut-bb-deli-in-tiffin-new-concept-store-specialising-in-sandwiches https://hype.my/2018/159711/beard-brothers-bbq-debut-bb-deli-in-tiffin-new-concept-store-specialising-in-sandwiches#respond Mon, 01 Oct 2018 03:36:36 +0000 https://hype.my/?p=159711 A perfectly smoked meat that literally melts in your mouth is definitely one of the best things you can eat, but to achieve that level of juiciness and tenderness is no easy process.

A perfectly smoked meat that literally melts in your mouth is definitely one of the best things you can eat, but to achieve that level of juiciness and tenderness is no easy process. Just ask Nazri Jameson, the founder of Beard Brothers’ BBQ, which is said to be one of the best barbecue restaurants in Klang Valley.

The Beard Brothers’ BBQ has garnered a lot of hype over the internet since it started its restaurant business at Tropicana mall 2 years ago. However, according to Jameson, the business actually began since 2013, delivering from house to house and selling from his wife’s grandmother’s home in Keramat.

Due to the high demand, Nazri finally decided to settle on a physical store in late 2016. The barbecue restaurant becomes one of the first local eateries to make a stamp and pave the way for the barbecue scene in Malaysia.

Known to serve awesome authentic melt-in-your-mouth firewood smoked meats, the guys from Beard Brothers are probably the only people in the country to take barbecue as seriously as they do as all of their meats are smoked for about 14 hours with fire wood, guaranteeing an authentic Texas-style barbecue.

“Hats off to the guys who do this, because you have to have some sort of level of craziness to do BBQ. It’s no joke! Taking care of the fire for 14 hours, prepping the meat for another 4 to 6 hours. You’re working around the clock. It’s tough. So hats off to those who do this,” said Nazri in an interview with Hype Malaysia.

Now, with their barbecue business going so well, the brothers decided to venture into a new food business which has recently made its debut at Tiffin Food Court for a limited time – BB Deli is Beard Brothers’ BBQ’s new concept store focusing on sandwiches.

Some of the BB Deli’s menu include pastramis, salt beef, homemade sausages, but their must-try item has got to be the limited rib burger named All Might, which is a combination of Beard Brothers’ short rib and BB Deli’s new sandwich concept offerings, pricing at a whopping of RM120 but only available for a limited quantity of around 2 to 3 per day.

“I really want to make affordable artisanal meat and I want to stress the affordable part because I think people here in Malaysia deserve good quality deli meat. The stuff that you get in the hotels are so processed and has so much chemicals, and I want to avoid that. I want to give the people as pure as possible, and at an affordable price.”

After BB Deli, Nazri will be venturing into another food angle, which would be Japanese ramen which will be called Umami Boru. However unlike Beard Brothers’ BBQ, Nazri is looking to franchising BB Deli as well as his upcoming ramen project.

“We want to look into giving back to the people as an opportunity for business where this is franchisable. We got our own central kitchen that will be making the food, and ensuring that the quality control is tip top. We can distribute it for those who are interested in franchising it,” he said.

Tiffin Food Court opens every Thursday to Sunday (from 5pm till late), running until 21st October. So be sure to try out BB Deli and Beard Brothers’ BBQ while the food court is still there!

The new milk tea brand has recently been dubbed as one of the most popular drink in Taipei. It’s apparently also trending in the Philippines. So what is Tiger Sugar about?

Tiger Sugar, which was established in November 2017, got its name from the “tiger stripes” that form when the caramelised syrup mixes with the thick milk tea mixture. Ingredients used include dark brown sugar, boba pearls, red beans, fresh milk cream, and more.

Many of have tasted it have vouched that the, *ahem*, hype surrounding the drink is very real. There have been reports of people queueing up for over an hour just to try the lava lamp-ish milk drink. Bubble tea lovers like the drink of its undiluted taste.

Surprise dessert lovers! FamilyMart Malaysia has just debut a brand new dessert.

This morning (Wednesday, 26th September), we noticed a new signboard at FamilyMart Mid Valley promoting a new ice cream flavour – the Murasaki Sweet Potato Cheesecake Sofuto.

Priced at RM2.75, the Murasaki Sweet Potato Cheesecake Sofuto is the 6th flavour to be introduced by FamilyMart Malaysia after flavours such as Vanilla, Cheese, Hokkaido Melon, Coconut, and the permanent flavour Green Tea (Matcha).

The Murasaki Sweet Potato ice cream is not new though. Franchises like Haagen Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s have already introduced this flavour before. Murasaki is a purple-skinned Japanese sweet potato that is well-loved for its nutty flavour. Go try it the next time you visit FamilyMart.

Having tried it, we’re not super crazy about the new flavour. It’s average at best. You’ll probably like it if you enjoy eating sweet potato. Having said that, we like that this flavour isn’t super sweet like the Melon flavour.
