McDonald’s GCB is Back!

McDonald’s GCB or Grilled Chicken Burger is back in town from 26 September 2013 and we were given a special preview of it at McDonalds Annexe @ The Curve on 21 September 2013.

The GCB debuted three (3) years ago and has since been available for specific durations in the years that followed due to popular demand for this burger.

The GCB features a grilled tender chicken thigh, paired with char-grilled sauce on a bed of iceberg lettuce sandwiched between two toasted warm sesame seed buns.

You can opt to have it ala carte

Here’s the Chinese press release:

八打灵再也, 2013920— 对你而言, “G” 代表什么呢?对某些人来说,“G” 或许代表了“迷人(Glamorous)”、“天才(Genius)”、“有趣(Groovy)”,甚至是 “震撼(Gempak)”。但是,对麦当劳粉丝而言,“G” 代表GCBTM汉堡包又回来了!漫长的等待终于结束,GCB迷将可再次开怀享受他们最喜爱的GCBTM汉堡包。香烤鲜嫩鸡腿肉,淋上美味无比的炭烤酱汁,加上新鲜爽口的生菜,全部夹在两块金黄色的烘烤芝麻面包之中, “G” 味满分。

KL Restaurant Week 2013

Elaine and I headed over to Midi 57 along Jalan Bangkung in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur on 23 September 2013 for the preview of the first ever KL Restaurant Week which is scheduled to begin on 4th October 2013.

KL Restaurant Week 2013 will see over 45 dining establishments participating, offering various cuisines from Malay to Italian to Japanese, German and Thai to name a few.

KL Restaurant Week differs from MIGF in the sense that it offers common folk (like me!) a chance to dine at some of KL’s more high-end restaurants at a modest price. Each restaurant will have a fixed menu with prices starting from RM20.00 nett for lunch and RM50.00 nett for dinner. Seats are limited and you’ll need to book ahead at http://klrestaurantweek.com/! Online reservation closes on 29th September.

So make the most of this opportunity to have set lunches and dinners within the range of RM20.00 to RM98.00.

You can head over to http://www.hungrygowhere.my/food-guide/gallery/kl-restaurant-week/ and read some reviews on some of the participating establishments.

Midi 57’s lunch set (shown below) comes with a soup of the day, main and dessert of the day for RM38.00 nett.

I thought the food was ok from the one of two mouthfuls of each dish that I tried, Not that I was on a diet or anything just that most of the dishes were shared among eight (8) of us (of which fortunately 7 were girls) who were reviewing the food at the outlet but from what I ate I generally didn’t have any complains.

Lucky Miss Sunshine got to review Opus and you can read about her review soon at http://www.sunshinekelly.com/
