McDonalds in Thailand

mcdonalds thailand

McDonald’s in Thailand has one
important menu item that Malaysia doesn’t – pork. The Thai sure love
their pork (and mangos) over here. I make it a point to go to
McDonald’s in every country I visit (and managed to drag MDC with me
despite her new found reluctance for all things McDonalds).

The McDonald’s at Siam Paragon (the newest shopping
center in Bangkok) has a nice interior – there is ample seating and
iPod stations for listening to music. I checked out the Thai McDonald’s
menu and couldn’t read it so I got passed and English menu. I found
four different menu items – McSalad Shaker, Samurai Pork Burger, McPork
Burger and Pepper Chicken Burger and ordered them all.

Samurai Pork Burger (66 baht)

The Samurai Pork Burger was ordered as a large value meal so it came
with fries and Coke. The Samurai Pork Burger is wrapped in an
appropriately aggressive red wrapper.

Samurai Pork Burger consists of a pork patty topped with mayonnaise
and lettuce. I don’t know what’s so Samurai about this concoction but
it tastes great eating pork. Malaysia doesn’t server pork due to
religious considerations.

McPork Burger (19 baht)

McPork Burger! I just love the name. McPork! McPork! McPork!

The McPork Burger is the lower end offering (equivalent to a no
frills cheeseburger) priced at 19 baht (about RM 1.90) and it comes in
a purple wrapper and has pork in it. Mmm…(Mc)Pork.

Pepper Chicken Burger (23 baht)

MDC ordered this one coz I ordered all the pork. The pepper chicken burger comes in a blue wrapper and tastes like chicken. ;)

Pepper Chicken Burger in Thailand is not slathered with pepper sauce
but rather grounded pepper on a deep fried crumbly chicken patty. It’s
alright, but it’s not pork.

McSalad Shaker (32 baht)

McSalad Shaker is the current promotion in Thailand and it’s salad
in a plastic container with a choice of “Salad Cream” (mayo) or 1000
Island Dressing.

The McSalad Shaker in Thailand has REAL HAM as in ham made out of
pork like God intended it to. MDC says it makes all the difference in
the salad. It certainly made it very savory.

I put the Salad Cream into the McSalad Shaker…

…and shook it as per the instructions. It was quite fun actually, or perhaps I’m just retarded.

This is what the McSalad Shaker looks like after it’s been…er, shaken.

MDC and I agreed that it tasted great. They have cherry tomatoes, lettuce, carrots and most importantly – ham!

mcdonalds end

McDonald’s in Thailand is great if you have a hankering for pork since we don’t get pork in Malaysia.
