The Catholic season of Lent, which culminates in Easter Sunday, is meant to be a time for sacrifice and reflection. Catholic children are taught to "give up" something they like during the period. Fasting in olden days has given way to a modern tradition of not eating meat on Fridays during Lent. This particular tradition seems to have triggered a growing tend in fast food marketing. The challenge: how do you capitalize on a large part of your demographic that will otherwise skip your restaurant because your base menu is all meat? The answer: SEAFOOD.

We've seen this coming. Fish sandwiches have been long advertised during Lent. In fact, the McDonald's fish sandwich is said to have been created for this reason. And we started seeing the beginnings of a promotional "season" two years ago. But never before have I seen so many different chains hopping onto this particular bandwagon.

Here is the latest visit to Burger King in Geneva. I reviewed this same fast food location in June 2013. It is interesting how the prices have stayed relatively flat. Below you'll see that a Big King is CH13.90 and a Whopper is CH14.90. A year and a half ago, they were the same price.

On this trip I attempted to revisit an old friend, the spectacular Steakhouse Burger that I had in Barcelona also in 2013. Back then, the burger was so picturesque that it graces the header of the Fast Food Source website. So, did the same burger in Geneva measure up to that high standard? Sadly, not even close. For the review, keep reading...

Here are some pics of the menu of the Burger King in downtown Geneva, taken from the ordering kiosk, which turned out to be a super handy way to capture the information in a clear and organized fashion. Note that "Non disponible" means not available. The Swiss apparently like to tease.
