McDonalds Hotcakes - Finally Available in Malaysia



When I heard through the
great grapevine that Hotcakes had arrived in Malaysia, I was jumping up and down with joy! No need to wait for a visit to McDonalds over the Causeway or travel far far away to indulge in my little fetish for these delicious babies. Tracking these down were quite a task as somehow I never saw any announcement heralding their arrival to our shores from Golden Arches, the franchise holder in Malaysia for McDonalds.



I finally did figure out where they were found and sampled them recently. Served piping hot with a fluffy and light texture, they were delectable with butter and hot syrup poured over a stack. Absolutely dangerous stuff as it's available all day and night hence I can satisfy my cravings for them whenever I have the urge. Besides the hotcakes with butter and syrup (RM5.99+) they also serve it with Sundae ice-cream with a choice of strawberry or chocolate flavours (RM6.80+). It's also available during breakfast whereby it's served with sausage.

To sample these yummy Hotcakes, drop by the McDonalds' outlets at Bangsar, Bukit Bintang, Centrepoint, Ulu Klang, KL Sentral, Genting, Taman Connaught, The Mall, Low Cost Carrier Terminal and Section 3 Shah Alam. For full addresses of these McDonalds outlets, check out this

I like them too! I think their yummy--and fast. I also like the little hash browns.

But, since I'm in food rehab--none for me!

KampungboyCitygal said...

arh? only those outlets that u mentioned has hot cakes? what about the others? i wana eat hot cake for breakfast tmr!! hahaha

boo_licious said...

sher - High five girl! Love those hash browns too. Sinful but oh so good esp on a lazy Sunday morning.

kampungboycitygal - Yeah, only ten outlets all spread around the Klang Valley and sorry, none in Cyberjaya or Seri Kembangan. Maybe you should complain to them and see what they say?

tigerfish said...

I did not know hotcakes were not available in Mysia till now- Whaz the reason?

Precious Pea said...

OMG!!! My favourite...yumzz....especially drizzle with syrup. This will be my breakfast tomorrow, hopefully, McD at Plaza Mont' Kiara serve this. Ermm..don't you think hotcakes with soft serve ice-cream doesn't quite match?? It should be the normal hard one isn't it?

Flower said...

Kesian you all. Now only they serve hotcakes in limited outlet. For us here, we have been having hotcakes since donkeys years. Have to be 'aksyen' a bit becoz most of the food you get there, we here cannot get so easily. Hehehehehe

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Cool. Now got reason to go to McD's. :-P

sc said...

thank you, thank you, thank you boo! wow, i sure miss these babies and didnt even know it's in msia already.yay! thanks for this post!

Tummythoz said...

Aiks why only selective places? Colossal machine involved? Won't those be like pancakes?

MeiyeN said...

hotcakes @ mcd!???! ahhh.. boo thanks for this precious info! didn't know until you blog it out!!!! :D

boo_licious said...

tigerfish - no idea why it took them so long to bring them into Msia but whatever it is, I welcome this change with open arms.

precious pea - Sorry but Mcd's in Plaza Mt Kiara is not serving this. Only ten selected outlets as listed are currently serving them. Maybe later they will decide to serve this in all outlets I guess after judging the responses.

flower - hee hee, I think you should "aksyen sikit" as we're so deprived of this here.

lemongrass - LOL and fight with everyone else for food.

sc - I didn't know but thanxs to the power of the blogosphere. Hope you enjoy every mouthful.

tummythoz - I guess they're testing the customers' response first. Suspect they have weighted the costs and price points of people to see if they are willing to pay this much for their hotcakes. Yeah, it's pancakes but McDs has always called it hotcakes.

boo_licious said...

meiyen - you're a fan too? Well, time to indulge in some this coming weekend.

Xiu Long Bao said...

Huh...y everyone seems to be so overjoyed of the new hotcake from McD? *Scratching head*
I think i'll hav the hotcake wiv sundae. Muz be very delicious.

boo_licious said...

xiu long bao - Hope you like it but I kinda prefer the traditional butter and syrup.

PR DEAL said...

this is so old, but i like the quater pounder one, more yummy than hotcake agreee ppl?

Platinum said...

Boo, that pic of urs is making my tummy growl. LoL. I love McD. But dammit, there is no quarter pounder burger here. There is still the great BIG MAC and yea, hash browns. Yummy.

Oh my ...finally they're here in Malaysia. I used to have it with my flatmate for breakfast in NZ all the time. Was wondering why they didn't have it in Msia but then we also wondered by they didnt have Ayam Goreng McD in NZ McD's too :P hehe

Precious Pea said...

WHAT!!??!!!????!!!!!????!!! Plaza Mont' Kiara patrons by so many Mat Salleh and they don't serve hotcakes here??? Must email to Golden Arch and ask for reasons!!

bearyip said...

i wanna try la!!!!!!!!!!!111

D said...

Hey? Funny how I never noticed that you guys didn't have hotcakes. Is the butter served with it the "whipped" variety? Looks abit yellow in the picture. But you guys did get fried chicken at Maccas before us =D Is there still fried chicken in Malaysian McDonalds? I so seldom eat at Maccas in Malaysia because I prefer to indulge in the kickass local food instead so pardon my ignorance =P

Pink Elle said...

HOTCAKES! Finally :) Thanks for the tip! Your photo of it is super drool-worthy. Lesson to self: Never visit Boo when hungry! ;)

Wandernut said...

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!
I'll be going to LCCT in tmrw morning. Flying to KK for the weekend and climb the mountain.

Was already planning to have brekky at McDs! Now I can't WAITTTT!! I love hotcakes!

Thanks for the tip, Boo! :)

Someone who is constantly craving said...

Is it really that good? u got me there for a moment when u say hotcakes..didnt knw it was pancakes..but i think i prefer waffles in a&w hehe..

an9ie said...

Wow, I can't believe you've only had Hotcakes introduced! What was the hold-up, I wonder?

Jackson said...

wanna check it out!!!

praveen said...

I didnt know abt this until I read your blog post.. The Taman Connaught one is pretty convinient for me...McD here I come..

miza said...

wow!!! i'm drooling rite now! ;P

boo_licious said...

pr deal - there's new quarterpounder? not sure abt that.

platinum - hope you satisfy that growling tummy. You can leave comments on Haloscan as that does not require sign up with blogger.

the expedited writer - guess it's just one of those things that can't be explained. I've actually eaten McDs in Auckland before. Sad story abt us as it was the only dinner around that nite.

precious pea - LOL! Go for it girl.

bearyip - oh no! Poor thing. Never mind, now you can go to one of those ten places to try it.

D - Butter is not whipped, just ordinary Anchor butter but so soft. I think fried chicken is definitely more important for us as it's a staple food.

pink elle - hope you enjoy it

wandernut - wow, have a good trip!

someone who is constantly craving - love the waffles at A&W and yup these are pancakes.

an9ie - dunno, I guess some special equipment?

jackson, praveen and miza - hope you all like it. Eat while hot, ok?

Lianne's Blog said...

oh great!Reasonably priced pancakes at last .. it is one of those things that you can prepare at home but just to lazy to do it, and can only get to eat them in "cafe" type place, it is good time that McD's launching this! Sunday will be so sunny from now on :-)

boo_licious said...

lianne - saw yr Max entries. So yummy that I wish I went for lunch there tday. Haven't been back since he brought in new items to the menu. Only had his choc souffle that day after the bloggers food crawl.

On the pancakes - I'm going to try the brekkie ones. Really makes my weekend too!

LazySuzy said...

Thanks for the tip! My husband absolutely loves pancakes and so far hasn't found the perfect panvake in KL yet. Hopefully McD does it well!

boo_licious said...

lazysuzy - hope yr hubby likes it. Reasonably priced so no need to visit Paddington Hse of Pancakes for cut throat prices.

Honey Star said...

OMG!!!! I love pancakes!! Yea , no more goin to Paddington, hate their cut throat price and their lousy service.

Im gonna stuffed myself mad with pancakes this week.

boo_licious said...

honeystar - LOL! Poor Paddington.
