I was quickly scanning the menu at McDonald’s during a stopover at the Bangkok airport, and I saw that they had a savoury pie on the menu.
I almost did a double take. Wait, what? Did I just see that? I glanced around to confirm that I was looking the McDonald’s menu. And yep, there it was: the Chicken BBQ Pie.
McDonald’s in Indonesia might just sell the best thing I’ve ever tasted at a McDonald’s. It’s kind of crazy how good it is.
I wasn’t really planning on revisiting McDonald’s in Malaysia, but I was walking by one and saw that they had a lychee sundae, and I figured sure, why not?
I honestly can’t remember the last time a meal made me so profoundly sad. The food in Taiwan is so good, and you can’t walk more than a block or two without stumbling upon several restaurants serving something that looks amazing.
The Taiwanese version of McDonald’s, on the other hand… Yikes. It might be the worst food I’ve had at McDonald’s since starting this blog, and that’s really saying something — I’ve had some pretty atrocious meals courtesy of old Ronald McDonald.
Well, the trip is drawing to a close, which means that this is my last taste of international McDonald’s weirdness.
Yep, another country, another visit to McDonald’s. Let’s do this.
There was something particularly depressing about eating at McDonald’s in Vietnam. I’ve only been here a few days, but it’s already clear that this country has some of the best food of anywhere I’ve visited so far. It kind of sucks to waste a meal on McDonald’s, but I’ve come this far. No point in turning back now.
The menu at McDonald’s in Hong Kong is kind of boring; nothing particularly jumped out at me. But I’m way too deep into this McDonald’s around the world thing to stop now, so yeah — I got a couple of things.
After my shockingly great Korean McDonald’s experience — and considering how good all of the food in Japan is — I had high hopes for a similar experience here.
I’ve eaten some pretty awful stuff at McDonald’s over the last few months; McDonald’s in South Korea has single-handedly made up for all of it. It was actually kind of bizarre how good everything was.
