McDonald's introduce Michelin chef approved burgers

McDonald’s are launching thicker burgers, which are apparently approved by Michelin-chefs. If the actual burgers themselves look like the ones in the pictures, they could be half-decent... but then, McDonald's burgers looking like the pictures - we all know not to hold our breath on that score, eh?

Here's what you're in for.


So what can you bite into, apart from maybe the odd stray frog?

Well, if you're ordering a 'Classic', you'll get a 100% British and Irish beef patty (a mix?) with some Beechwood smoked bacon, a bit of cheese, whole grain mustard mayonnaise, ketchup, lettuce and onion, whacked lovingly into a brioche bun. The BBQ meanwhile, is the same patty, with the same bun, salad and bacon, except this one has smoky BBQ sauce and a bit of coleslaw. And for orderers of The Spicy, you'll get the same patty, with jalapeño slices, pepper jack cheese, a bit of lettuce and mayo, and a spicy relish.

How much? Individually, these burgers will cost you £4.69, or £6.19 if you're getting a meal. If you want one, you better live in the South of England too, because that seems to be the only place that deserves these burgers.

Here's a list of the places where the 28 McDonald's chains will be.

    Since when has 'Barkingside' been London?
  • darwin
    proves anyone can sell out and removes any value from the michelin brand
