Golden, Spicy, Salted Egg and CNY...

I was so tempted to try out the 'Golden Egg Crunch' fried chicken from KFC that I decided to ta-pau for my late dinner after my CNY shopping spree...
I requested for 2 pcs of chicken thigh coz I prefer tender & juicy meat...The set comes with a Sarsi (not Pepsi), whipped potato and coleslaw.
'Golden Egg Crunch' is such an auspicious name given to this fried chicken...First bite, it was indeed crunchy but salty. It has a hint of sweet basil leaves, spicy chili, salted egg & curry leaves taste. For those who can't take spiciness, this isn't for u.
The yellow thingy on the top right is Golden Cheese Cake..
nope, it wasn't from KFC though they shared the same 'Golden' name.
This cake was bought from AEON bakery at RM7.90 out of curiosity.
Turn out it is just another sponge cake with cheesy topping, nothing special.
 Next item that is seasonal is the curly fries in McD which usually paired with Prosperity burger in its set meal. Since I've eaten prosperity burger a few weeks ago, i would rather have other burger, but i'm still fond of the curly fries, hence i topped up my Spicy Chicken Deluxe set with RM1 for this curly fries...
and a few weeks back, McD has also launched a 'Golden' version of its Prosperity Burger
 so, what's so 'Golden' about it?
Look at the pic below....
 and u will notice an additional piece of hashbrown....that's the reason of its 'Goldenness'.
 Well, these days it is either 'Golden' or salted egg kinda stuffs being introduced in the F&B market and some being associated with CNY as seasonal item. Even the cheese tart is not being missed out. In mid Dec last year, Hokkaido has launched the salted egg cheese tart!
It was still running on a promotion of 'Buy 5 free 1', hence it is RM33 per box of 6.
At the same time, there was also a similar promotion for durian cheese tart. Hence, i decided to mix them - 
3 pcs of salted egg cheese tart + 3 pcs of durian cheese tart for the price of RM33!
Quite a bargain coz the usual price for the ordinary cheese tart is RM5.80
Both were good, u could taste both the saltiness + sweetness in the salted egg cheese tart...
As for the durian cheese tart, it taste just like the Secret Recipe durian cheese cake...If u r not fond of durians, it will be hard for you to acquire that taste.
BON APPETIT!

Somewhere in Singapore: which one? durian or salted egg?

Mun: yea, almost everything has a 'Golden' name to be marketable these days...hahah! There's nothing Golden about that version of Prosperity Burger, except being a few bucks expensive...

Eh? I also had the golden prosperity burger but mine got no hash brown. Or I did not notice. LOL!

Somewhere in Singapore said...

Both, hehe...

Phong Hong: mayb u dun notice. The taste of hashbrown has been overpowered by the strong pepper sauce.
