Mcdonalds Comes To Chiang Rai

Recommended Posts

I expect Mc D's will give the farang owned restaurants a run for their money . Personally I dont like the burgers they serve but the bacon and egg Mc Muffins are really good. So are the Vanilla Shakes.

I will enjoy and adda few extra pounds for sure :D

Can’t remember the last time I ate in a McDonald’s.

McDonalds in most places in USA (not airports) have had a dollar menu for several years where you can get a double cheeseburger or several other items like breakfast sandwiches etc for one dollar (30 baht)....actually pretty good deal. But i have noticed the McD's in Bangkok and other places in Thailand sure don't have any prices that low. Actually seems their prices are higher here than most McD's in USAl When you consider that their cost of construction, rent, and cost of labor here is way way less I suspect the franchise owners in Thailand are making a very nice profit. Granted they might have to pay bit more for beef but I suspect many Thais order chicken and pork which is likely way less costly here than in USA or the west.

Anyway, I would guess Burger King can't be far behind in finding a location in Chiang Rai as I expect the new McD's here will be packed at least in the beginning and probably forever. I am surprised that it took McD's this long to open in CR.

Love McD's in Auckland city centre, as for a few years I went in most mornings to read the paper, have my bagel and free seniors coffee, chat to other regulars. Staff are so nice. It fills a much needed gap in NZ where food is pricey. On rainy day it provides a kinda refuge for many of the homeless, lonely, unemployed too so they're acting as a social service.

When travelling around NZ, it's a good standby as one knows exactly what one is going to get and the general price range. Do go in Bangkok as there are too many other well-priced tasty options.

I've mentioned McDonalds before and been flamed and then flamed again :(

Any way, I do like the McD's breakfast and a couple of observations: 1) Most of the customers are Thais; even the locals can have Big Mac attacks,; 2) I like thai food but sometimes when I see the rancid oil used, I'm thinking hmmmm, maybe McD's is actually healthier :D

I'm quite partial to a 'big breakfast' myself. Hopefully they'll being doing em. I can imagine a trip to town, a quick breckie and off on a Bike ride somewhere.

As for being healthy, I'm pretty sure they are all well-balanced meals in moderation. The coffee has medicinal affects on me too.

Let em flame away ;) ...... MFCS Limeys :D

Pancakes and sausage at my house for breakfast this morning. Where are you? You've got about ten minutes left before your share gets eaten.
