Mc D here is nothing like the Mc D in the west. 

 

I would think the Burgerking uses higher quality and bigger portion food than Mc D.

 

BK TH supposedly gets their beef from Australia... McD TH has told me in the past they get their beef from the U.S.  To me, here, they both taste like dreck...

Rechs Original Post: My answer to 1st question "In Thailand Burger king is so expensive, is it worth the price for you?": My answer Yes!
 
Not sure I could describe why without having a tasting of both in front of me. I wouldn't disparage anyone with a different view on value for money either.
 
Never heard of Carl J's (where are they?) and the last Taco Bell I was in was 4 decades ago when on work assignment in Houston. Great but no burgers back then I think. Wendy's was my favourite burger in the 70's - wonder what happened to them?
 
 

Wendy’s is still in the U.S. and the best burger meat of the bunch imo.

I have often mused on this matter, one of the most important issues facing Thailand today.

 

I generally come down on the side of McDonald's.

 

But where I differ with Mr Kroc's baby is in the price of a McChicken. 

 

I would always go for a 62 baht Zinger Burger at KFC rather than parting with over 90 for his Mc Kai.

 

There! I have spoken......

Isn't this contradictory?

lol.  Maybe.

 

I find the fried chicken in McD is more to my liking that at KFC.  They are not the same taste of recipe..  It is lighter and not greasy or fatty at McD.

 

Everyone likes different things, but for me whenever I eat KFC, even just one portion of chicken, I feel sick about 30 minuites afterwards... maybe because it's kind of greasy and fatty, not really sure.  Also the chicken burger they do also is soft and floppy crumbly dry bread, with horrid browning lettuce and too much slimy cream stuff on it.

 

Just my personal taste.

In Malaysia the Whopper cheese meal at Burger King cost 15 Ringit = 115 THB, wonder why the same meal is almost double that in Thailand when salaries in Malaysia are higher than in Thailand.

Always my first stop after arriving at LAX. 🙂

No way I ever see them here.

 

You probably know In & Out Burgers is privately owned and is very private as well.   Their expansion has, by choice, been quite slow in light of the popularity of the brand.

 

 The in & Out employees I've observed seem to all have a positive  work attitude and actually act happy.     The articles I've read  claim the company treats them well in terms of wages, working conditions and future opportunities.

 

The only negative I've ever read about In & Out Burger is  some very long lines especially when a location first opens.

 

I agree about liking the idea of having a few in Thailand but won't hold my breath waiting for it.

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.

All airport food costs more- it's what they do in the hope that people want to get rid of their foreign money before flying.

 

OP, if you want to eat processed food full of chemicals, just go for the cheapest as it's all bad for you. Just put loads of ketchup on and it all tastes the same.

I prefer my poison chips at KFC as I hate those string things they serve at maccers.

I didnt spend 21 hours in the air over 9000 miles to eat more expensive and less tasty versions of the <deleted> I can eat at home.

 

Except in case of emergency of course. Like booze belly. Rare.

Perhaps because Thais seem to think fast food is actually good cuisine and are willing to pay 4 times what they would for a normal Thai meal to sit on a plastic seat and eat plastic food.

Unless there are some legal restrictions on pricing, a business that knows what it is doing charges whatever that maximizes profit.

One of the general differences between McD and BK in the west is the way in which their burgers are cooked -- with McD's cooking theirs on a grill/griddle, and BK cooking theirs over a flame grill (although they also then get microwaved thereafter).

 

Here in Thailand, I have no idea how BK's actually cook their meat, but if their burger patties are flame grilled, by the time they've typically sat around in the store for a long time after initial cooking and then been microwaved, any taste or fresh cooked flavor relating to flame grilling seems to be long gone...

 

I like to order my BK XL ANGUS Whopper at 7am, that way i know its fresh off the flame grill and not been sitting around and then microwaved.

I guess that goes along with the idea of charging  the maximum that the market will bear until there's a pullback.

 

Almost sounds like gouging.

That is not always the case. Many factors are involved in setting an optimal price for a product. Sometimes lowering the price may actually increase overall profit.

I'm sure that a company like Burger King knows what it is doing.

Couldn't of been so disgusting if you kept chuckin' it down your neck, even once a year, before you swore it off forever and ever, amen.
