But what stood out the most was the introduction of new menu items. They included crispy chicken skins, a “Streetwise Chow” and * drumroll * a Zinger burger with glazed doughnuts substituted for rolls.

The latter seems to be a big talking point on social media. The jury was out on if the new dish was a winner or not, although many found the taste combination to be “weird”.

Some of the comments read:

“Doughnut zinger burger? WTF? You’re so weird.”

“A piece of spicy chicken between two donuts is a crime against humanity”

“Hayini who asked for this?”

“What an abomination of a burger!”
