Re: Have a Burger.....

There is always something very disappointing about a Maccas' meal so I rarely go except when travelling but even then I prefer KFC

I know a few people who have had nasty experiences at KFC Bruce, so I never go near them....

Imagine all the bits of animal that canít be sold as joints and there you have a burger.if I was unfortunate enough that nothing else was available to eat but a burger I would buy the meat and mince it myself.
I wouldn't eat a burger from a roadside van or backstreet caff but these global chains/franchises have a reputation to live up to. I've never had a foreign body, chewy or crunchy bit. And re the bun: it's just some nothingness to hold on to.

My feelings exactly d00d, I don't eat burgers from Mac's on a regular basis, but sometimes a big mac just hits the spot... I would prefer one of Meg's though....

Re: Have a Burger.....

I don't know if this is true or not I heard it from a friend and she heard it from a friend of a friend.

Anyway the story goes she ordered a chicken fillet sandwich without Mayonaise from a KFC when she got it she thought they had put Mayonaise on by mistake but it didn't taste like Mayonaise....on closer inspection it turned out to be a sack of puss leaking out of the chicken......I've never been in a KFC since hearing that....I feel ill just typing this. Yuk!!

It's the combo of mayo, pickle, lettuce, cheese & onion that make it! There's not a lot of meat involved. That's the difference when eating in a more upmarket joint, their burgers can be an inch thick, too much.

This sums it up perfectly as fas as I'm concerned too.
I couldn't tell you the last time I had a burger-place burger, but it was some time before lockdown.

The favourite in our house at the moment is a buffalo stroganoff burger from a Scottish online butcher and boy are those things gorgeous, but we don't have them very often.
Though if this weekend turns out as good weather-wise as promised . . . .
