That's definitely not your standard American McDonald's fare. No cheesy rice bowl here. But no ribbing from me.

The best McDonald's I ever had was the McDonald's in Nürnberg, Germany in the early '80s. This was when globalization was in its infancy and Europe wasn't overrun with McDonald's, Starbucks, 7-11s, Pizza Huts, Burger Kings, KFCs the way they are now. Back then, McDonald's was about the only American thing you would see outside an Army base.

But the McDonald's would be tailored to the regional tastes. So the Nürnberg Mickey Ds had German beer and their pommes frites (french fries) came with mayonnaise and a little pitchfork! 😮

That was my first exposure to the wonderful combination of dipping fries in mayo. Of course, when I went to Belgium I discovered many more flavour combinations for pommes frites.

I've always dipped my fries in BBQ Sauce.

You guys are spot on! This cheesy rice bowl is exclusively for McDonald's India. Apart from burgers, the outlets here actually have a good selection. Strider, it is very interesting how these big chain restaurants vary their menus so much by country. Here we have something called a Maharaja Mac!

Three New Menu Items To Try At McDonald’s EOTF

Ten years back, if someone said McDonald’s has salads, all eyebrows would have raised in unison. Why on earth would a successful burger chain even consider to think in that direction? But then, the restaurant goers changed or diversified their preferences over the years; soon they started looking for food that was green and wholesome. So as well as the burgers they are known for, McDonald’s began to come up with a lot more options for everyone to try. Let’s dive right in to see what’s new at McDonald’s EOTF that is healthy and different.

Rice Bowls:

If you like rice then you are going to love these. And you will be spoilt for choice. Your options are the veggies and cheese rice and beans and gravy rice. Both come with an add-on option of spicy chicken or plain veg. So it all comes down to just one question- which one will you pick?

Whole Wheat Wraps:

Apart from a fresh and crunchy green salad wrap that debuts on the menu at your nearest EOTF store, you can get the whole array of the existing wraps in whole-wheat tortillas! So you won’t have to choose between what’s yummy and what’s healthy!

Green Salads:

Salads were first introduced by McDonald’s in 2005. In India, the launch happened along with EOTF in 2017. The simple, but flavourful and filling salad comes in both chicken and vegetarian options. So go ahead, take your pick from the EOTF exclusive menu items to believe it for yourself.

Pork chops were $0.99/lb. at the store last night.  I got 10 chops for $6! I seasoned them with basil, sage, thyme, garlic, onion and brown sugar then slow smoked them at about 220F for two hours over a cherry wood fire. 

Best pork chops I've ever tasted! So this is what pork is supposed to be like, tender...

Eating healthy now. Apparently the "whatever I want, whenever I want in the quantity I want" is no longer sustainable. Whodathunkit?!?!?

I'm now getting used to things like Low GI, heart friendly, low this, low that.....

So far it's not too bad actually.

Pommes frites with mayonnaise are a match made in heaven. Add a Leffe brune or any other dark Belgium beer and I'm happy :)

Yeah I typically cook with low sodium foods or no salt added, then lightly season it as I go. Not bad at all! Plus use ground turkey and chicken sausage instead of beef, etc. Much leaner with much of the taste intact.  ✌🏼

We have these Panda Express Chinese Kitchens out here. Their chow mein is just basically noodles with onions and that sucks, and their fried rice is bland and that also sucks. It ruins their main entrees, which are actually great. So screw Panda Express because of that.
