McDonald's to sell new lamb burger

Kiwis have been the only McDonald’s market in the world to offer lamb on its menu permanently.

And now, the fast-food restaurant chain announced it is expanding its horizons once again, adding New Zealand lamb to its menu.

McDonald’s hopes its Serious Lamb Burger — a lamb patty, tomato, onion, egg, lettuce and beetroot — will be a hit with Kiwi lamb lovers.

The burger will be on sale from Wednesday this week at 160 of McDonald’s restaurants nationwide. Also on the menu will be the Lamb Snack Wrap - a half patty of New Zealand lamb, lettuce and creamy aioli, all in a soft tortilla wrap.

Another lamb product will also be added to the menu in the coming weeks.

McDonald’s managing director Patrick Wilson said the product was going to 'wow' Kiwis, who liked to eat lamb, but usually couldn't afford it.

"Lamb is so iconic to New Zealand but sadly it has become unattainable for many Kiwis due to its price. McDonald’s is really excited to be adding this option to our menu and making fantastic lamb products available at an affordable price for our customers," he said.

McDonald’s New Zealand has partnered with Beef + Lamb New Zealand for the new lamb burgers.
