There were several things that I wanted to try in HK. One of them is the McDonald’s rice burger (Fan-tastic). Therefore, on the third day of arrival, I went to M and checked this out. As you can see, the package is quite nice. When we were there, M was very busy (as usual). I could also see M has opened up the “cafe” section, where you can get sandwiches, cakes, coffee, etc. The thing is… the “cafe” area is designated for the “cafe customers” – i.e. unless you buy from the cafe, you can’t sit there (even if you’ve bought a fan-tastic combo).
I didn’t really look at the price @ the cafe, but I’m sure M’s gonna increase its profit by segmenting this market.
Take a closer look at the rice burger…
It just doesn’t seem as big as the one in the ad. The taste wasn’t spectacular, but it wasn’t too disappointing neither. The way the rice stick together is actually quite cool… I think it’s Japanese rice (similar to sushi rice – stickier than the Chinese/Thai ones), and it’s not too soggy/dry. Of course… it’s McDonald’s! They must have done lots of research and testing before launching this product. I’d say, if I were living in HK, I’d buy this burger 1 out of 5 McDonald’s visits.
How can I not get the fish balls in HK?! Yummy :p
Got this Japanese plum candy from my friend, RS. It was very good!!! Really tastes like plum:) I think there’s real plum in the ingredient. I don’t snack a lot, but I really like it. You gotta try this if you get a chance!
And… I gotta thank CF for letting me to stay at her place. She’s one of the few girls that I know who can be party animal and a good housemaker. She bought these wax-apples (蓮霧) along with a lot of other fruits for me when I was there. I love the wax-apples! Not too sweet, but they’re very tasty in a special way.
