GCB @ McDonald’s

24 07 2010

I am sure you have heard about the “What’s your G contest?” buzzing on the radio lately. It turns out that McDonald’s has introduced a new burger called GCB. Glorious, Great-tasting, Grilled…. or whatever the G stands for, this burger has been the talk of the town lately.

Admittedly, multi-million marketing hype does play a big part in this, but the fact that “The new chicken experience” as proclaimed in the advertisement does hold a certain ring of truth as the chicken patty is marinated and grilled unlike the other burgers served at McDonald’s. The packaging is also different as it comes in a box with some facts about the GCB written on the sides.

Inside, the burger comes with lettuce and char-grilled sauce for the flavouring. My verdict? Not too bad, I must say but the price is slightly on the higher side. The medium set meal comes up to RM 11.90 excluding the 5% government tax.

So what’s your ‘G’ today?

Big N’ Tasty @ McDonald’s

24 06 2010

McDonald’s started their McValue lunch promotion sometime back and it was a good thing for those who want to have a cheap meal. Recently, they introduced a new burger called Big N’ Tasty burger which is essentially the same with their classic Quarter Pounder albeit with more vegetables. The meal (together with fries and soft drinks) costs RM 11.15 for a medium size set.

Basically, the burger consists of a 1/4 pound beef patty with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and ketchup. This is one of my favourite burger apart from the Quarter Pounder.

And the fries…. McDonald’s serves the best fries as compared to KFC or Wendy’s. Definitely a great way to start off an appetizing meal!
