After whetting our appetite last year with a trial at selected outlets, McDonald's Singapore has brought back the Quarter Pounder with Cheese.
From Feb. 2, 2023, the burger will once again become a fixture on menus across the island alongside its beefier sibling, the Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese.
The Quarter Pounder with Cheese will be priced from S$6.30 a la carte and from S$8.10 when purchased as a meal.
The double patty option can be bought at S$8.10 a la carte and from S$9.70 as a meal.
For those unfamiliar with the burger, which was once a McDonald's staple, the Quarter Pounder with Cheese features a quarter pound of beef patty (hence the name), topped with onions, pickles, and melted cheese slices.
Its return will be accompanied by two limited-time menu items: Chargrilled Chicken-flavoured McShaker Fries (from S$3.95 a la carte) and the Caramel Frappé with Oreo (from S$4.70 a la carte).
In addition, a Jan. 31, 2023, press release from McDonald's Singapore announced tweaks to the recipes of several of its classic burgers — the Big Mac, Double Cheeseburger, and the Quarter Pounder with Cheese.
One change will be the introduction of three different bread formulas that come with a glaze coating for moist, slightly tender, and caramelised buns.
According to McDonald's, they were uniquely designed for classic burgers.
Other changes — which the fast food restaurant has dubbed a "remaster" — include:
- juicier patties as a result of an increase in the flattening grill's gap setting;
- the addition of 3.5 grams of diced onions slightly caramelised on top of Big Mac and Double Cheeseburger patties;
- a new thawed temperature of 17.5°C for their cheese to give the "perfect melt";
- and 50 per cent more sauce in the Big Mac
