Mcdonalds

Grey beef paddies cant be good for you, probaly shouldnt even be called beef.

Mcdonalds only tastes ok because it has tonnes of sugar loaded into the burger.

I would take a greasy takeaway shop burger pver any fast food burger anyday.

I've never seen any grey hamburger on sale in the USA, but they must taste better than Vegemite anyway. :o

It always comes back to the vegemite, doesn't it :D

After living in the states for almost 18 months I can honestly say the differences between the 2 are minimal at best.

Haven't been to a McDonald's in Thailand yet, but I used to practically LIVE on the junior green chili cheeseburgers (on the 99 cent menu) while living in Albuquerque, New Mexico (granted, it was the only burger place near my home that had a drive-thru window open 24 hours a day so I could get a burger-and-fries-with-milkshake fix at 3 or 4 in the morning...)

But I did like the last burger I ate at the Burger King in the domestic terminal of BKK back in January.

I've only had three burgers in-country since moving to Thailand permanently this past April:

1) at a bar on the south end of Patong --> rock hard kaiser roll and almost-as-hard pattie (D-)

2) room service at Baikyoke Sky Hotel in Bangkok --> rather hard sesame seed bun, small greyish pattie, too many tomatoes (I just pick 'em off anyway), burned bacon slices

3) yesterday, found a place called Perfection Cafe in Chalong (near the Phuket Zoo on Chaofa East Road): excellent burger: perfect size and softness bun, thick pattie with the proper color (probably a half-pound of beef) and was perfectly cooked -- juicy with just a slight greasiness, melted cheese slice (although this was mozerella instead of cheddar it was still good), excellent-quality slices of bacon, plus a large amount of lettuce and tomatoes on the side; also, the atmostphere is good --> an enclosed restaurant (not open-air) with good air-con, pleasant decor, and a great mixed drink and wine selection...

I'll definitely be returning to Perfection Cafe for occasional burger fixes (it's attached to Perfection Spa) and be steering clear of the McDonald's in Patong (too bad the only Burger King on Phuket is at the airport or I might be tempted). Still, I intend to check out other non-chain burgers whenever I get the chance...

Actually, we realize that McDonalds in the USA and abroad are virtually identical. That is why they cover the taste of the meat with sauce.

However, I remember that, at one time, Burger King used to have very good beef - much better than what McDonalds and the Burger Kings in Aussie and Thailand use, but I haven't been in the US for over 15 years. Is the meat quality at BK in USA still much better than what is sold in this part of the world? :o

Bob's was all but killed off a few years back when the Marriot Corporation bought it.

Just a couple of stores survived (Burbank for one).

They are now trying to do a comeback.

The best thing about Thai food is the cleanliness of the preparers hands as the collect filthy dirty money in btw food preparation in addition to stringent health dept regulations regarding cleanliness of street food vendors. those street side sinks and anti-bacterial soaps they use is stupendous for good clean food. LOL

McDonald's Serves Quality Meats and Eggs

Your favorite McDonald's sandwiches are made with USDA-inspected 100% beef, high quality chicken and fish, as well as farm fresh Grade A eggs.

Beef

McDonald’s commitment to quality can be clearly seen in our dedication to bringing you USDA-inspected 100% beef to ensure your favorite McDonald’s premium burgers are of high quality and taste great.

McDonald’s is the largest single purchaser of American beef, buying nearly one billion pounds per year. As one of the nation’s leading purchasers of agricultural products, including beef, McDonald's believes in and has consistently advocated and enforced the strongest possible food safety standards and regulations.

In fact, McDonald’s maintains a select list of only the top beef suppliers in the country and continually conducts independent third-party audits to ensure safety and quality.

With these industry-leading standards in place, McDonald’s is able to deliver –and you are able to enjoy – high quality beef in your favorite fresh-to-order McDonald’s sandwiches.

Chicken

McDonald’s uses premium chicken from leading suppliers like Tyson. From our Premium Chicken Sandwiches and Chicken Selects strips to our Chicken McNuggets and Premium Salads, our customers can trust McDonald’s to provide them with great-tasting, high quality chicken.

Our suppliers conduct ongoing quality analysis to ensure that the products we serve meet our demanding specifications. Following McDonald’s strict food safety procedures, our chicken is carefully inspected to ensure top quality and freshness in the food choices you enjoy in our restaurant.

Did you know? McDonald’s was the first Quick Service Restaurant to invent a quality portable breakfast sandwich for people on the go in the morning. The sandwich – the Egg McMuffin. The year – 1973.

Fish

McDonald’s uses white fish from the cold, deep waters of the Pacific Ocean and Bering, Baltic and North Seas. The premium quality of McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich is a result of the process and high standards we employ and our ability to freeze the fish at sea to maintain freshness. In fact, the high quality standards that McDonald’s uses when preparing fish far surpass federal requirements.

I like those shoestring style french fries Micky D's sells. Once you accept the fact that their sandwichs are "burgers" in name only and that they are nothing more than fast food loaded with things any cardiologist would frown on....then you walk in with your eyes...and your mind wide open. I haven't eaten one of the sandwichs in about 5 years but, when in Thailand, I will stop in for the fries.

bon appetit!
