McDonald’s Bangkok

McDonald's corn pie
It was late and we just finished our last massage at Mr. Feet. We were tired but we were hungry. Since we had to pass by McDonald’s on the way back to our hotel and it was the only restaurant open we decided to eat our last dinner in Bangkok there.
 In Bangkok the background of the signage is black. No bright red here.

We wanted to try their unique food items not found in Manila, Hong Kong or the USA.

I was impressed with their menu board which was an lcd screen with the objects moving and changing.

No plastic chairs in sight!

My order was a glass of cold Thai iced tea and chicken ham pie. The iced tea was ultra sweet. I had to ask for more ice.

The tray liners had all the nutritional information for all of McDonald’s food and drinks.

The pie was described as chicken and ham with signature Italian sauce. I tasted the tomato sauce but there was very little filling inside. I couldn’t even taste the difference between ham or chicken. It wasn’t very filling either. Not too horrible but I wouldn’t buy it again.

My pie definitely didn’t look any where like the one on their menu board.

The only thing good on this tray was the fries.

Chris had the spicy chicken burger. It had a pathetic thin chicken burger with just a little spice which wasn’t enough to give the burger any semblance of taste or flavor.

Rochelle had the pork burger since she doesn’t eat beef. After taking a bite she wished she ordered something else. I tried it and it was just bland and boring.

Chris and Rochelle had one corn pie each. I was surprised it was listed under desserts on the menu board. I forgot in Asia corn is popular for dessert. In the Philippines we have mais con hielo (sweet creamed corn with ice, maja blanca (corn pudding) and corn ice cream.

Where’s the corn? Inside the hot, flaky pie was a thick corn flavored filling with hardly any pieces of real corn.

For the pleasure of foot massage we gave up the chance to eat real Thai food one last time. It was a really sad, sad thing to have McDonald’s as a last meal in a country with such awesome food. For the money we spent in McDonald’s we could have eaten really good noodles or sausages in some street vendor.
