so far so...blah

So, there was the Texas Burger back in January...which was good despite the limp bacon.

Then in early February, the NY burger came out at McD's...meh...there was so much Dijon mustard in there that you couldn't taste much of anything else. There was also limp bacon, tomato, cheese (maybe Monterey Jack or Swiss?) & lettuce.

With the tomato in there it made for messy eats.

I don't know if it was the burger, but I was really ill afterwards too :(

Last week, the Hawaiian burger came out...it was "supposed" be a loco moco on a bun.

There was bacon (limp), lettuce, cheddar cheese, the patty, an egg (the kind in the egg mcmuffin where the yolk is not soft at all), pizza-ish steak-ish sauce (where's the brown gravy??) and a cheese bun that fell apart as soon as you bit into it.

Grr...I knew we shouldn't have tried it...I always get disappointed when someone proclaims something to be "Hawaiian" and it isn't.

I took a couple of bites and gave the rest to Satoshi (sorry Satoshi!)...blah! After he finished both he said something with pineapple in it would've been better...!!

One more coming out at the beginning of March, the California burger...even though we've tried 3 out of 4, dunno if we will check it out. At 420 yen (about US$4.20) a pop for these burgers and 740 yen (about US$7.40) for the set, they aren't as reasonable like the rest of McD's menu and not as delicious either.

whoa - loco moco on a bun...i bet that would be awesome (though messy, hehe) if done correctly!

Hey Kat - Those burgers sound terrible.... but at least you get variety at your Mickey D's.

Bummahs. I'm kinda curious about what the California burger will be like.

blukats said...

Oh those do not sound good! As a resident of California, I hope you can at least post what the ingredients are. Since we don't actually have a "California" burger here, I'm curious as to what they think one would be. Probably will have that egg, they seem to put that on most of their "special" burgers.

I like your journal. I've been reading it for some time, but first time I've commented. Thanks!

I think the "real" loco moco on a bun would be really messy but ono! Kathy :)

I guess so Kirk :)

Maybe Satoshi and I can half the sandwich and eat something else Jalna :)

Thanks for commenting Blukats :)

Take care everyone!

Hmmmm, maybe time to give up on burgers Japanese style. They sound aweful.

K and S said...

I truly love MOS burger, which is a Japanese chain Momiji, only thing is that they haven't had anything new sparking my interest lately.

Take care.

Hi K&S, I had hopes but too bad.. I agree with Kirk though, at least there's new stuff to try often. We get McRibs once every so often. Yippie?

I believe I saw the Texas burger over here too, but was only willing to shell out 6.70€ (that's almost 9 bucks!) for the McItaly classic menu. A pity that none of your taste tests were winners. From now on I'm just sticking with a Big Mac if we ever need to stop at McDo.

Bummer--it certainly had potential.

Maybe the California burger will have avocado--of course I think limp bacon is probably a given on it too! ;-)

K and S said...

I hear you Rowena :)

I think you may be right about that bacon Debinhawaii :)

Take care you two.

K and S said...

I guess I should know better Dennis, their teriyaki burger uses the pork sausage patty :p

Take care.

Rooster said...

Yeah, those burgers were pretty average. Like the Japanese cooking angle for your blog. Will check back again.

K and S said...

Thanks Rooster :)

Take care.
