This year, they're upping the game with something we never thought we actually thought possible: the Laksa Delight Burger($7.40 for a la carte, $9.10 for an Extra Value Meal)! It comes in two flavours: prawn and chicken. Many have praised the burger, saying that the prawn in particular, tasted almost like a real bowl of actual laksa, so it's definitely time to try it for yourselves 😍
