I don't know about you but since young I've had "phases" with McDonald's. I love fast food.
🍔 McDonald's, because it just is.
🍔 I also like MosBurger, because I find the quality pretty good. love the fish burger, Mos Chicken & milk tea!!
🍔 Carl's Jr., for its beef chilli cheese fries, sweet tea & how big the portions are!!!
the rest like KFC, Long John's, BK,... they're okay I guess. as for Popeyes, Texas chicken etc they're a different league altogether.
LOL let me delve deeper into McDonald's, since I probably eat it the most. or have eaten it the most.
when I was really young I liked eating filet O fish!
I never liked mcchicken. thought it was the lamest thing ever and didn't taste nice. HAHA
probably because when I was much younger my parents used to order for us and my mum would get me the filet O fish because my mom prefers fish to poultry & she doesn't eat beef!
fish mcdippers!! I liked it a lot too and I don't know why it phased out - guess it was not popular enough and they probably launched it as a seasonal item.
they sold it together with tar tar sauce I think? loved it so much 😍
and even way back before fish mcdippers if I'm not wrong, there was chicken mccrispy!!! aka McDonald's version of KFC 2 piece chicken. I loved it because the chicken pieces were huge but it was SO SPICY omg.
I remember eating it in lower primary? or even younger and my sister and I were STRUGGLING to eat 😂 but omg the crispy skin!!! and the superheroes! although now I can't remember why got 2 superheroes and what they each stood for.
I had a mcwings phase too! probably in upper primary and my biggest weakness till date is fried chicken.
but mcwings is not exactly value for
money... and it's definitely not filling so I try to avoid it. except for yesterday 😂
had a chicken nugget phase back when Javier and I were hanging out before we got together - but that's a story for another day, probably for the post where I'll be sharing about how we met/got together 😂
ugh pardon the .png file and its transparent background 😪
anyway i like double cheese burger too and how cheap it is!! $2 😘 although it's now known as the mcdouble and you get one less slice of cheese if I'm not wrong. oh without pickles please & thank you.
anyway! currently, mcspicy is my favourite burger from McDonald's. best is if you order it with the steamed bun/filet o fish bun and when you bite into it it literally melts in your mouth,... although it probably will get stuck to your teeth HAHAHA.
a lot of people love adding cheese and I've tried it once but nah... didn't like it.
the only issue I have with it is that my stomach can't take too spicy and so when I eat it it's highly likely I get diarrhoea LOL.
McGriddles is my all time favourite breakfast item and I'm more than upset that they have phased it out :(
I used to think big breakfast was good but I never liked the English muffin... same goes for sausage mcmuffin with egg!
when breakfast deluxe first came out, it was the first few months Javier and I got together and we LOVED it. think we had close to 5 breakfast deluxes in 2-3 months 😂 and yes I could finish it on my own LOL.
so nowadays I just stick to the hotcakes with sausage meal.
since we're on the topic of breakfast, I must mention that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE HASH BROWNS. I know they're quite basic and deep fried but it's just so good!!! I attribute it to my crazy potato obsession.
I usually eat it with garlic chilli or maple syrup. I know, maple syrup sounds totally off but it is really tasty!! to me at least. the sweet + savoury combination is perfect!
anyone likes having their hash brown with maple syrup too?
there're some condiments I used to love that have been phased out too... such as
I remembered that it tasted very "western" to me because my household has always only bought Kewpie mayonnaise which is the Japanese type of mayo 😂
I don't remember when exactly it got phased out but I remember being quite sad about it initially!
when garlic chilli was still in a yellow packaging! & I don't remember what the orange one was but I miss the sweet chilli packets too (can't find pictures of those).
but because of McDonald's I have both sweet and garlic chilli at home now for whenever I toast my toxic nuggets/seaweed chicken/etc 😂
things I've tried from McDonald's outlets outside of Singapore
McPork. available in Japan and Thailand if I'm not wrong. definitely Japan but I can't remember if Thailand has it or not. and it's really good! loved the sauce 😋
I remember during one of the times I was due to return home from Japan (or was it Thailand? omg I really can't remember) I realised the airport had McDonald's but it was at the departure hall of another terminal so I ran all the way and took their "sky train" just to go buy McPork HAHAHA. a lot of dedication don't you think.
when Javier and I went to Hong Kong in 2013, I tried the "Korean McSpicy"... which was quite a disappointment.
and then last year in Korea we tried their version of McSpicy too! I'm not sure if this is the right picture because I don't understand Korean HAHA but if I remember correctly it looks like it. although I don't remember having turkey bacon in mine.
whichever the case I think the Singapore McSpicy still suits my tastebuds the best and is my favourite one hands down!
Shaka Shaka chicken!! which I had in Tokyo in 2009. mm basically it's like Mos Chicken but a tinier version. you get a piece of fried chicken in a perforated bag where you can tear the top off. but prior to that you have a seasoning powder that you pour in and "Shaka" (shake in Japanese? I guess 😂).
as you can tell, my love for fried chicken is unmistakeable.
errrr I think that's the end of my crazy McDonald's post for now. HAHA unless I can think of more items to add on. 😂😂
I really love fast food and fried food even though it's so unhealthy. but I've definitely been trying to cut down on eating it already. as compared to secondary school... I had at fast food for lunch at least once a week 😳 #fatgirldiaries
wrote about McDonald's until I woke up with a sore throat :( HAHA okay I kid. but really though, how to go to work like that?
some guy has a blog completely dedicated to McDonald's items around the world - and it is extensive!!!
saw this on my Instagram feed and it looks promising.... but with advertising I know I can never be sure. any idea @sweetpea? 😅
