PETALING JAYA — The last two years have brought us a steady flow of nasi lemak-inspired takes on items from burgers to ice creams, and smoothies to condoms.

Now, the nasi lemak mooncake has surfaced at a Malaysian bakery chain.

The idea by HYT Food Industries and its pastry brand, Casahana, came about when they were figuring how to add a spicy twist to the traditional Chinese pastry.

"Delicious notes of savoury sambal spices and the fusion of coconut milk and lotus paste provide a mild and sweet fusion.

"These come together to provide a blending twist to the traditional nasi lemak dish with the traditional mooncake," a post on its official Facebook page read.

The nasi lemak mooncake was made available for purchase shortly before Malaysia's National Day, and is priced at RM19.90 (S$6.60).

The bakery has various outlets across Malaysia, in Pahang, Johor, Malacca, Perak, Penang and Klang Valley.

McDonald's released the nasi lemak burger in Singapore last year, and Malaysia's McDonald's followed suit in April.

In February last year, Kedah-based foodie Melissa Tan Chia Hui released the nasi lemak ice-cream at a cafe in Alor Setar, which sold for RM10 each. MALAY MAIL
