About 3 weeks ago, fast-food chain McDonald’s launched a special burger inspired by the infamous Nasi Lemak in Singapore and naturally, us Malaysian’s went “WHAT ABOUT US?”

The burger, which featured a coconut-flavoured chicken patty, a fried egg, sambal and cucumber slices, took Singapore by storm, completely selling out just two weeks after making its debut.

So after seeing a flurry of pics floating around on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and even Snapchat, Malaysian burger masters started replicating the Nasi Lemak Burger so the rest of us wouldn’t have to cross a border for the hybrid version of our favourite comfort foods.

Which led everyone’s favourite burger joint myBurgerLab to provide Malaysians with this drool-worthy, and crazy indulgent sandwich that is, to our opinion, a few notches higher than Singapore’s McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger – the Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang burger. And trust us, everyone knows that a damn layan Nasi Lemak comes with a side of Rendang and a sunny-side up.

The tongue-in-cheek tweet by myBurgerLab above with the hashtag #MalaysianPride  struck a nerve with some. Soon after, we awoke to THIS salty af post directed to myBurgerLab posted by a Singaporean (we assume) Facebook page, Mediacock Singapore:

Well, someone’s feeling patty.

But thankfully, besides being masters of really awesome burgers (seriously, if you haven’t had a burger at myBurgerLab, you’re missing out on a lot) they’re also masters at shutting down online trolls. So when they caught wind of the post, they hilariously clapped back with the Salt-Bae Burger – a salt packed sandwich, exclusively for the #haters.

So far, we haven’t seen an update from trolls. But it seems like myBurgerLab is winning this one.

Until then, get your Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang Burger on with myBurgerLab today!
