In Thailand Burger king is so expensive compared to MdDonald, is it worth the price ?

Surely there is better food to be found for a quick meal than that ovepriced slop.

 

Sure is.  But every now and then, a "slop" burger from BK hits the spot, despite the totally outrageous, pension busting price tag.  😫

Carl's Jr. Is better anyway if you're willing to spend the money. I always feel ripped off after a burger king because it's not nice enough to warrant the price. Carl's Jr. is another story, expensive but worth it.

Finally, the Elitists arrive. 👍🏽

 

I can hear the gasps from the audience to the sound of 1 satang coins dropped on the tile floor.  Well Mavis, if I cut out one large Chang, maybe by next month we split a Carl's Jr Famous Star.  No cheese, onions or pickles, cause they make me fart.

The last time I had a BK was at Don Mueang, it was about 450 baht if I remember correctly, which is over 12 GBP, absolutely stupid price for a fast food meal.

Mark up for prime site (air-side at international airport). Same meal is probably 380 baht in malls, highway service stations and the like. Also the menu is more limited at airport outlets versus their standalone stores.

I like Carl Juniors, especially there milkshakes, but they need to up their french fry game.

 

Still in the fast food hangover bracket, nothing beats a Double Big Mac Meal with 3-4 Ice cream sundaes, and perhaps a 10 packet of nuggets.

Too specific details in a post caused it's removal under forum rule 6.

Burger King's burger is superior to McDonald's I suspect because they use better raw ingredients, that they have to pay more for. So the price is higher for a legitimate reason. If you go to a specialist burger restaurant they use even better raw materials, and the burger is therefore even more expensive.

 

You get what you pay for.

On a personal level, I can never work out why anybody buys McDonald's, absolute <deleted> and way overpriced.

A fatty, greasy meal when hungover is a good choice, it gets the gall bladder pumping and makes you feel a bit more human.

McDonalds sausage, egg, cheese McMuffin.  Woot! 

 

The thing that's worse than one of those, is none at all.  Because you rocked up at 10:01am.  Crestfallen, you settle for a quarter-pounder with cheese, fries...... and a diet coke. 😆

That's as may be, but if you don't have or see western fast food on a regular basis, and you haven't seen or had one for 6months or more they are kind of a comfort food and a welcome break from continual Thai food offerings day in day out for westerners.

Bang on the money. After months of som tam, khanom jeen and bowls of insipid grey garbage with floating bits, a McDonalds triple cheeseburger is an absolute taste sensation. Shame my nearest McD is a 90 minute drive away, and the nearest BK is over 6 hours away.

Have not had any "western fast food"  for more than two decades, be it golden arches or any other type, and before that maybe once a year to make sure it was as disgusting as the time before
