Enough is enough…


It’s the kind of story that makes us laugh in TV shows and movies – boy meets girl through email or a website, falls in love with the imagination of who she is, and is ultimately disappointed in the face to face meeting…

…in a roundabout way that happened to me today, and boy am I fucked off with it. OK, it wasn’t a girl, it was a burger, but the principles are the same, let me explain (although for those of you who have read my rantings over time will know where I am going with this).

On what planet does this…

It was an impulse decision to get some fast food for lunch and my attempt to get McDonald’s was scuppered by a lack of parking and I happened across a Burger King on my travels. Now I am one of BK’s biggest fans, the Whopper family has given me a load of fine memories and as I walked into the restaurant (is it me or is the term ‘restaurant’ a bit too much for a burger bar?) I was fair salivating at the prospect. And whereas I would normally order and devour my standard fare a change was in the winds and looking at the board the King’s Selection caught my eye, and in particular the Streaky Bacon Steakhouse. At $11.60 for a regular meal it had me thinking I was onto a gourmet winner, the picture depicting it almost sated my appetite alone…

And then came the face to face…

Food Reveiw – McDonalds Kiwi Angus…


What they have you believe...

For keen followers of my food reviews, and those who know me, fast food chains are a treat I afford myself rarely unless dealing with a particularly bad hangover. And it is this that brought me to McDonald’s new restaurant in Mt Roskill, Auckland. And it was this same hangover that had me choose something completely different from my normal fare at the “Golden Arches” – the second best burger going round is the Quarter Pounder, a feast that always has me wanting more than one in a sitting (including four  the night before my wedding!).

But this day last week, standing in front of the board feeling rushed to make a decision I made a conscious decision to order McDonald’s new (old) offering, the Kiwi Angus, which seemed fair as my last burger reviews centered on new/limited run options from KFC and Burger King….and we have a new king!

Bitch Session feat. Food Review – Burger King


Even the logo looks bigger...

The other night I saw on TV a feast that made me drool more than Homer Simpson…the Burger King Rodeo Quad Stack. Seeing the ad I immediately bailed up the wife for some extra pocket-money to sample one for lunch (yesterday) to which she agreed…YAY!

For those who don’t know, I love BK – Double Whopper with Cheese to me is one of the edible wonders of the world.

So into BK in Shirley and I put in my order for a Quad Meal for $10.40 and sat down in a booth. About five minutes later the table lay bare…the thing was disgustingly delicious however was nowhere near as salacious as a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder or Double Whopper (with or without Cheese).

Big Mac or Quarter Pounder?


 

Mine have never looked like this!

Definitely Quarter Pounder!

Between QP and Big Whopper with Cheese though? Tough call….I may have to do some field work on that one and get back to you.

Normal view of my QP..the caption for this pic on
Google was “normally seen eaten by large people!”.
