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

Recommended Posts

I eat at BK in Udon (2 locations), Highway 7 (1 location), Pattaya (3 of their locations) and Bangkok (1 of their locations). I have always had to wait for the burger which is being constructed to-order and they invariably politely request that I wait for fries as they do tend to make them in smaller. fresher batches. TBH I have never seen a pile of cooked and wrapped burgers under any heat lamp like at any of those franchises. I have only seen that at some US franchises of Wendy's at peak-times. Here, the freshly-cooked and wrapped burger comes down a short slide from the kitchen at the back. None of these locations offer any opportunity of observing staff "picking patties out of small plastic bins which were sitting there before I walked in". However, I understand from a former employee (US) that this is how they fulfill the 'freshly grilled' promise as there's a secondary, searing process that along with certain additives, yields the 'freshly grilled' look and taste. From order/pay to pickup/eat is invariably a 3-5 minute experience and it's always served hot.

 

I don't do McDonalds.

First Big Mac for at least 3 Years last night. Realy enjoyed it. I think one becomes a Mac Moaner when you do them often. Tried various Thai fast foods but they bung hot spices even on KFC Chicken.Im an Ozz Meat Pie addict realy.

Its OK, some folks are just born wrong, I can still be polite

Ubon Burgers: Probably the best is NJoy, not sure about the Wrong Way as they use sour bread - still tasty though, the Outside Inn has a good selection - if the kitchen is open!!, Bennys burgers, either on the river or the outlet on the eastern end of Sappasit Road, 100 or so metres before the temple, or, if youre south of the river then Bull Burger, on the #24, southbound carriageway before hitting the University traffic light system. Please note, these burgers are ALL hot when served, my son burnt his mouth on the fries at Bull Burger

...but didn't burn his mouth on the actual burger.

 

But your point is well taken. The hand-made burger joints I ate at in the US delivered a far hotter burger than any fast-food outlet. Then again, these places tended to make bigger burgers, had tables an chairs for loads of dine-in's and no drive-through.
