McDonald’s is back, much to the delight of Singaporeans who have been waiting for three weeks.

Despite the shortened opening hours, the fast food chain’s post on Facebook still received many love reactions and grateful Singaporeans filled the comments section of the restaurant’s Instagram expressing their happiness.

Singaporeans certainly showed their eagerness for a McDonald’s meal on the first day of the reopening. The McDelivery app was not available due to a high volume of orders and customers were redirected to the website for delivery instead.

However, the McDonald’s website also experienced a surge in website traffic, and customers were placed on virtual queues to enter the website instead.

Some customers even woke up as early as 8am to get a takeaway meal for their breakfast.

Others recalled attempts to make their favourite McDonald’s food, but admitted that they couldn’t compare to the actual thing and thanked McDonald’s for reopening.

“I came across people creating their favourite McDonald’s dishes at home but self-proclaiming that your version was the best is a joke,” wrote food blogger Alain.

Besides the breakfast meals that the early birds bought, McSpicy also featured prominently on social media, along with McDonald’s curry sauce. There’s definitely no doubting what Singaporeans’ favourite items on the menu are.

There were also reports of long queues forming at some outlets.

However, McDonald’s is not going anywhere this time. So if you are unable to get it delivered, you can always do so another day, instead of joining the queues! Remember to stay safe!
