If I go in there it's for an egg mcmuffin/no butter and that happens about twice monthly. I don't eat their hambergers and used to eat their fries but nolonger. I'm trying to cut out fast food fries from my diet and very rarely eat bergers or hot dogs of any kind. I am however addicted to Panda Express.

If no one bought the meat they wouldn't sell it, but it seems that most people would have cheap meat and ignore where it came from.

As a vegan, I typically order either the garden salad or a soy cappuccino whenever I go there because my kids want to :-(

In Germany, even the free Wifi is actually a hassle (you have to send an SMS to the service provider and receive a logon code valid for an hour), so there are not very many redeeming factors.

Best regards,
Andy

I like McDonald's breakfast better than their sandwiches. (I usually order "big breakfast.")

Their burgers are fine, but I prefer Burger King's and Wendy's.

I found burger king to be a little better, though I rarely bought from that place either - I remember they did lovely onion rings though. Mmm.
Are you serious? The onion rings are highly over-processed garbage and they are not what I would call proper onion rings.

There's a much better place to go for burgers and fries... real burgers made while you wait along with hand cut fries made while you wait... and free peanuts (in the shell) while you wait too..

Give Five Guys a try. You'll never be able to eat McDonald's fries again.

In-n-Out Burger is my favorite. The meat is fresh and never frozen. The buns are toasted. They use California produce like sliced tomatoes and hand-leafed lettuce. The fries are made on the spot from whole potatoes, but I don't really care for their fries.

Unfortunately, they're a West Coast thing, and I've been living on the East Coast for the last 15 years. We have Five Guys here in Providence, and I've had Shake Shack in New York, but they just don't compare. I so miss In-n-Out.



I also miss California style pizza. Not the kind with weird ingredients, but regular pizza from places like Shakey's, Strawhat, and Round Table. People on the East Coast (esp. NY) rave about their pizza, but it sucks.

Just call it MRM or Meat Slurry.

I have to admit I'm somewhat glad it isn't allowed here (apparently it's banned in the European Union), but I don't think it's as bad as it is made out to be. There are enough other meat-recovery methods anyway - none of them produce T-Bone steaks...

The "worst" probably is the ammonia - and I don't think this really is a problem, despite what is said in the media (explosive, fertilizer, etc...).
Ammonia boils below room temperature - so I doubt much of it is left in the meat at all, and even so, once you start frying the burger (surely no one would make steak tartare with that), it should be all gone.

Meanwhile, people happily use "salt of hartshorn" to bake cookies - probably because it sounds so natural. Too bad it releases ammonia too, being made up mostly of ammonium bicarbonate...

There certainly are enough disgusting animal products already, no need to go against fast food companies, as if they'd invented the idea of using all the parts of an animal.

At least that is actually meat, not just ground up internal organs.

Still, I agree it doesn't look pretty. If you ask me, meat never does. Still tastes good. I like the chicken nuggets - though I'm quite certain they're not just stamped out a chicken either...

---

P.S: Of course, it might be the McDonalds I know is different from what you know - they should be roughly the same, but since they likely use local sources for their products, there may be differences? No pink slime here, but surely other sources of MRM.

P.P.S: Ever ate something that was colored with Natural Red 4(E120) ? <ggg>

Rarely eat there but the Sausage and Egg McMuffins (who the Hades says McAnything though) are a good hangover cure in a crisis.

I like Triple O's here in Hong Kong
