I want a hot sandwich at BK's and McD's in Thailand. Am I a jerk?

Recommended Posts

 Hi All, 

 

I hope this doesn't come off as petty, but I am annoyed that I cannot get a hot burger or chicken sandwich at BK's or McDonald's in Udon Thani. I don't know if this is generalizable to other such venues in other areas, but the heat lamps here do not seem to keep sandwiches warm. I have taken to asking for a "new" sandwich when ordering, leading to all kinds of looks of consternation and cognitive confusion among the staff at times. Most recently, I asked for a new one, as previously instructed to do if I want a fresh one made up, and watched them as they removed a patty from one of the sandwiched under then lamp, and re-fried it. Am I being a jerk if I ask for a freshly made sandwich, and then asking for a refund when they deliver something other than? I get that it's fast food, not a Michelin-starred restaurant, but I go in for it 1-2/week if that and I like to enjoy a hot meal when I do. 

 

I suggest to all. If you want to taste fastfood the way it was meant to taste -- it can be quite delicious! -- ask for a fresh ("new") sandwich when you order.

I very occasionally patronise KFC and that's only in the UK.  Always piping hot, good service, and tasty.

If you leave the burger outside for 20 minutes during a hot day it should at least warm up!

 

I always ask McD to make fresh fries if I go.  They always oblige.

Sorry, should have added vote with your feet.  Thousands of other Thai establishments will provide you with a tasty, nutritious and hot and, if you like, spicy meal for next to nothing.  Come all the way to LOS to patronise BK or Maccy D's?  What's wrong with you?

 

Move on and enjoy life.  

MCTHAI Co, the local operator of McDonald's quick-service restaurants, plans to double the number of its stores by 2020 (to 400), and 14,000 staff to become one of the top three operators of McDonald's restaurants in Asean in terms of store count.  People go to MacDonald's because they like MacDonald's.

Kim J., our politics may be different, but I agree. People are easily satisfied, so there's not motive for them to improve. That said, BK advertises freshly grilled. I see them picking patties out of small plastic bins which were sitting there before I walked in. All of this, of course, is written expressly without the intention to inflame a certain member further.

I occasionally go to McDonalds and the burgers are heated freshly every time.

 

I know this because they always make me wait for at least 5 minutes and I can see them constructing the burger in the back.

I don't like Thai food, actually. I cook for myself. Very occasionally, I like fast food. Cleans out the pipes.
