Nasi Lemak Burgers, Brisbane | Concrete Playground Brisbane
Two years ago, Pappa Rich gave tastebuds across Australia the culinary hybrid they didn’t know they were craving: a nasi lemak burger. They were originally sneakily trialled in Sydney stores in 2018, then rolled out for a limited time in 2019. Now, they’re back.
The burger takes the typical accompaniments in this Malaysian rice dish and sandwiches them all between two toasted burger buns. There are layers of crispy Malay fried chicken, spicy sambal, peanuts and anchovies, all topped with cucumber, lettuce and a fried egg. As a side? Expect Pappa Rich’s deep-fried chicken skin, of course. You can also opt for chips if you prefer.
