I'm loving it. I found a trusty McDonald's on a recent trip to Shanghai. The restaurant was pretty much the same as any other, apart from the sign. One thing I noticed is that nobody seems to bus their own tables - everyone just left their trash and a guy came around and cleaned them up. I dumped my own Big Mac wrapper. We'll get to pics of the food, but first, let's take a look at the menus:
First, of course, is the Big Mac. Then what looks like a Double Quarter Pounder. What that thing was on the right I have no idea. The cashier didn't speak English so I could not ask. Whatever it was, RMB20 is about $3.25. My Big Mac was a little cheaper.
Here are the fish and chicken items. The sandwich on the left appears to be some sort of deli item, but it could be more fish.
The McWraps were really tasty looking. And you could make it a combo with Fries or Rice for about $1.63.
These have to be some of the happiest Happy Meals around. What an inviting menu. And those little chicken strips shaped like drumsticks - brilliant. But let's not waste any more time. Here is my Big Mac combo:
Tasted the same. Made as quickly as they make them in the States. It was a little dry, but no more than some I have had at home.
I could not get to McDonald's to grab any shots of their menu while in Geneva, but here are some I captured from Burger King:
Here is my Big King combo meal, which was only 14 Swiss Francs. Whoa! Yeah, that's on par with the US dollar so it cost me just under $15 for a Big King meal.
And that was a less expensive meal than most of the others. Sorry for the grainy grab from my phone, but it was at a long distance:
The moral of this story is that food is dang expensive in Geneva. More than in Zurich. Basically, take what you would spend in the US and triple it. It made the twice-as-expensive food in France seem cheap by comparison. Crazy!
On a recent trip to Paris I grabbed some shots of the menu outside a Parisian McDonald's. I will admit they were pretty boring pics as there were no food items displayed. Here, I went back to Paris just for you and got better ones:
I am thinking the Royal with lettuce must be blacked out above because putting lettuce and tomato on a Quarter Pounder violates some obscenity law.
Admittedly, when I go to visit my friend the Happy Star, I often choose from one of three staples: The Western Bacon Cheeseburger, the Famous Star, or the best dang chicken sandwich - the Charbroiled Chicken Club. But there is another silent classic trudging along, standing the test of time while other specialty gimmick burgers come and go. The Six Dollar Burger, named in the mid '90's as the same burger you'd pay $6 for at a sit down restaurant (now I guess $12 would be more apt), is the big patty brother.
It's hard to see how hearty this sandwich is. And this is the original, not one of the fancy variants with all the crazy toppings. Just pure, simple burger enjoyment.
