Is KFC Malaysia's Zinger Waffle Burger really worth your calories?
Updated: Sep 30, 2019
While in Johor, I've passed by this advertisement numerous times and have always wanted to buy it but the timings were just not right. Finally, while we were in Capital City (because we had noting much to do lol), we decided that trying it has been long overdue.
What attracted us to this burger was the unique combination of the waffles and the chicken and of course the delicious looking advertisement. Obviously chicken and waffles is a dish that is rather common but still it is the thrill of buying something that is only available for a limited amount of time.
The Zinger Waffle Burger starts at RM13.50 for just the burger, with the 6% gst it comes out to a total of RM14.31. At about $4.80 for Singaporeans, it is neither cheap nor expensive.
The burger does have all the layers stated in their advertisement. However you can't see the mayonnaise and the maple syrup layers BECAUSE there wasn't much given. The burger was extremely dry!
The waffles were thick and pretty dense. The taste was ok but it needed more maple syrup. The chicken was acceptable as well, a little too peppery for my liking and it needed more mayonnaise.
Putting everything together was just a disaster. And I emphasize again, perhaps just perhaps adding more sauce to the burger could have saved it.
If you are interested to try something just because its available only for a limited time, do so. But if you care for the calories you consume, I suggest you give it a miss.
