Since Mc Donald’s branches/franchise in UAE are not serving rice meals, I’m only frequenting it to coin Mc Sugoi Meal (my own version of combo of tuna salad from Mc Donald’s and California Makki from Sugoi). But now there’s another reason to patronize it. Mc Arabia Chicken saved the day.
Instead of being served with the usual Mc Donald’s bread, Mc Arabia comes in an Arabic flat bread. Which is thinner and softer (but more filling). There are two chicken patties and generous vegetable dressing inside it. These are lightly grilled that makes it more delicious than the normal chicken sandwich. No wonder it’s priced 50% more than the other burgers/sandwiches in Mc Donald’s.
The meal also comes with our old favorite french fries. I am not a fan of ketchup, I prefer salt with it or garlic mayonnaise whenever available. But after reading Mitch’s entry, I wanted to validate the ketchup theory. I knew that would be fun.
You notice the number indicated in the lowest portion of ketchup? As shown above, I got numbers 10, 9 and 6. As the number is increased, the ketchup’s taste changes from sweet (number 1) to sour.
On the other hand, I was wrong in my prediction that the fruit bites they offer will be phased out soon. When I tried it last year, I was betting that the so-called fresh fruit bites packaged by Del Monte for Mc Donald’s won’t be marketable. Well, it’s not just a hype. But it surprised me that there are those who prefer to pay for this junk food to buying real fresh fruits which are readily available in the supermarkets.
And if you’re a Filipino, I’m sure the “Love Ko ‘To” print on the paper bag and cups would make you smile.
