If there is an eating pattern i observed over the years, it is the willingness for tourists to walk inside a McDonalds whichever country they are in and order something that is usually not available in their home country. Sounds strange? Well as most McDonalds cater for their own individual country's market, you usually find something that can turn out to be quite a gem.
In Thailand, McDonalds is famous for their use of pork obviously. In recent times, you will also encounter some countries including Thailand that have launched their McCafe where they aim to serve the higher end coffees like the cappucino and the latte. In the United States, their recent highlight is the low fat and calorie options like the salads and the wraps.
The premium burger. It seems to me that this current trend of re-branding has come to a whole new level, burgers are no longer the fast food that labeled as evil that cuts your lifespan by half and made up of questionable parts of the cow or chicken. Since the bred of Angus technically comes from Australia, people like McDonalds and Hungry Jacks have come up with the premium Angus Burger.
Lookwise, it certainly looks premium. The bread, the salad (which includes rocket leaves) and the beef patty. The use of Angus really shows as you get a meatier bite vs. the fattier minced beef we usually get in burgers.
Awesome stuff i say, so if you are one of those that ventures into any McDonalds while on holiday, take a bite at the Grand Angus when you come to Australia.
Small meals start from AUD 8.45.
Available across McDonalds (i suppose)
Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. I can't believe it but i actually found something i liked in McDonalds.
