But me, I like what I like, and it's just how it is. I'm not gonna pretend otherwise.

Thank god! I mean, if people don't like it, fine, but if people don't go there to make a statement (but actually like the food every now and then)...booooooooooooooooo

Guess I was being a bit of a drama queen eh!....sorry.

But seriously I dont see what anyone sees in it. I cant think of anything good about a McMeal apart from that its warm.......If you're lucky.

McDonalds uses very cheap, low quality ingredients to produce very poor quality food. And people lap it up!

Why? According to the guy at my local Burger bar (who makes the most amazing hand made burger patties, my favourite with streaky Bacon & Stilton). Mcdonalds pumps loads of salt into all the food which makes it addictive and leaves you wanting more....Not sure if this is true, but for me a Mcdonalds always left me feeling more hungry than before I started.

If you enjoy it, fine but dont make out its good food because it clearly isn't.

This forum has a lot of Drama princesses, take care of your trone.

As for the salt making things addictive? I like their fries and the Chicken with RICE, that is the Philippine version. Why they had Chicken?

Two Places in the world were Mc.donald is like the VIETNAM WAR, meaning it failed because the locals gave them Jungle combat: The Philippines and South Korea.

The bee kicked the clown's ass in the Philippines. Jollibee is huge and goes Global. The taste is not BLANT, that is their marketing strategy. They also sell Chicken to kick COL. Sanders ass. The fast food war is the Philippine is a Nuke fest.

I LOST MY CRAVING FOR MC.DONALDS AGES AGO. THE CHINESE DON'T LIKE IT EITHER. IT TASTE LIKE CARD BOARD, and it aint CHEAP! but why do we eat???? THE NEED TO BE HOME, The familiar, the modern, The convenience, the popular, the AIR CONDITIONING, THE CLEANLINESS, THE AMBIANCE! 4 WEEKS in stir fry places, noodles shops, MSG factories called restaurants, YOU WOULD LOVE to eat CARD BOARDS.

I spent most of the nights in my UNI in Mcdonalds, so I owe that place for all the exams that I passed.

Big Mac Meal (sorry - on The Mainland they call it a Big Mac Menu) and a Kamenitza - opposite Varna Cathedral. Just has to be done.

Being preggo has brought about an irrational craving for McDonald's cheeeburgers. They've saved my life more than once (er, well, maybe they saved NEAL'S life more than once...).

My name is Tway and I love McDonald's cheeseburgers.

That was not my impression when I was in Beijing....we had to make our ways through the thick and fat chinese crowds that loved McDonald's. I guess they are like any other species: some of them like it, some of them don't. It's not nearly as good as Chinese food though

Yay to Jolibee!!!! It really did beat McDonalds ass, good on them. Wherever a McDonalds went up, so did a Jolibee and Jolibee won. Did you see the video of Jolibee f****ing another burger character (was it Ronald Mcdonald?)?
