McDonald's Prosperity burger is back!

Yep! McDonald's Prosperity Burger is back! When this burger was first introduced, only beef was available. Chicken was later added alongside. The meat is cooked to perfection and dipped in mouthwatering black pepper sauce and topped with crunchy slivered onions served in a sesame seed bun.

I went for it the other day not expecting any difference in taste from the one they serve previous years. The burger still tastes good although the sesame-seed bun is not as firm as formerly. The black-pepper sauce is not as spicy that you have to fan your tongue or suppress the heat with gulps of Coke or other chilled soda on hand. The curly fries are still great.

To me, the Prosperity Burger is probably the best burger at McDonald's. Unfortunately, this burger is not a regular item on the menu which in a way could be a blessing otherwise this acne treatment review would be on the cards. The McDonald's Prosperity Burger is only available a month or so just before the Chinese or Lunar New Year. No prizes why it's called Prosperity burger.

McDonald's original restaurant in San Bernardino, California served only hamburgers, milkshakes, and french fries. While still based on hamburgers, today's menu includes numerous other items that have been added through the years and certain items are location or country-specific. The Prosperity Burger is a genuine made-in-Malaysia item. Others like McRib, McCrab, McLobster, McVeggie, McRice, waffles, etc., are available elsewhere.


  1. Its good but I have a feeling it is getting more expensive by the year. The size shrank too!

  2. Lina, I also noticed the smaller size. You're right about the higher price too.

    On a related note, even that cup of tea in the coffee shop has gone up. The one I went to the other day increased it from RM1.30 to RM1.50! I told the guy it's only 20sen increase per kg so I should be getting that kg of sugar in my drink. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.

  3. hmmmm, i am not a fans of the prosperity burger, i find the black pepper too hot for me and i cannot take it.. tried that once, and i spend my whole night visiting toilet~~ :(

  4. Don't exactly like Prosperity Burger, but I do order Twister Fries.

    Not healthy food, though...

  5. @HappySurfer,

    Believe it or not, I have never tasted the Prosperity burger. I should really try it one day.

  7. I wish McD would serve pork burgers although this is really not possible in Malaysia. I had pork burger at Guilin's McD and enjoyed it.

  8. I love the curly fries!! These can be eaten on its own without the sauce. For the normal fries, I eat them by dipping into the Sundae ice cream. Haha!
