Ask anyone, and they’ll tell you about my immense love for KFC. The Colonel and I go way back to my primary school days of scarfing down Popcorn Chicken, where calories didn’t matter. And, in fact, they still shouldn’t. It is, after all, just a number. This is why you shouldn’t feel anything but pure unadulterated joy when you sink your teeth into the new KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zingerito (S$5.90 à la carte).
The KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zingerito is everything you’ve wished for and more. The burrito is filled with KFC’s signature Zinger fillet, accompanied by crispy rashers of turkey bacon, then saddled together with a creamy Mac ‘N Cheese. The Mac ‘N Cheese is a unique touch since burritos usually come with rice. Yes, these are the glitterati of KFC, and they were all invited to the party.
The topper of this glorious fête is how everything is wrapped up beautifully in an evenly toasted tortilla, blanketed with an oozy combination of shredded mozzarella and cheddar. Then, it’s finished with a dollop of mayonnaise. Is there anything more perfect than this?
When you take a bite out of this beauty, you’ll be hit with the rich, almost buttery, velvety cheese. This is only to be tempered with the spicy crunch of the Zinger fillet and the savoury, salty bite of the turkey rashers. With the comforting Mac ‘N Cheese and the addictive crunch of the Zinger fillet in a single bite, it is the best of both worlds.
It’s the ultimate ‘Treat Yo’ Self’ meal’, and with a wrap like that, there are truly no ragrets. Don’t stop there; make it a meal with KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zingerito Meal (S$7.95) where it comes with, in my opinion, the better fries and a drink.
If you want to get your hands on your KFC Mac’ N Cheese Zingerito a little faster, order it on the KFC app and skip the queue. Just a note, the Zingerito is not available at Singapore Polytechnic, Singapore Zoo, and The Signature. For KFC Northpoint City, Sengkang and Yew Tee Point, the KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zingerito will be available from 18 March 2021.
Suppose you do feel the slimy fingers of that all-too-familiar guilt creeping up on you, I’d say a big ‘Bye Felicia!’ to those feelings. A burrito this good is definitely worth the guilt; even your spin instructor will ask for a bite.
