McDonald’s Käsespätzle

McDonald’s. A-6130 Vomp · Industriestrasse 7

Incredible! Käsespätzle at McDonald’s! As part of its new ‘Hütten Gaudi’ (roughly translated as ‘mountain hut fun’) celebration, McDonald’s offers this traditional Alpine specialty in the form of deep fried finger foods. It makes sense considering the location and the general overall familiarity with this dish. But how does a conventionally feel-good food, best homemade with love and care by grandma, perform when transformed into a fast food deep-fried concoction? Continue reading

‘Kekstrem Gut!’ ingeniously covers the front of the brown little pouch. It’s a playful combination of ‘Keks’ (German for cookie) and ‘extrem’ (extremely in English). Continue reading

McDonald’s Asia Shrimp Wrap

McDonald’s. A-6130 Vomp · Industriestrasse 7

With the recent offering of the McNoodles, McDonald’s Austria boldly took a venture into Asian cuisine. Continuing with this foray into the Far East, the global fast-food conglomerate recently reintroduced a tantalizing, new McWrap to their already impressive lineup of wraps – the Asia Shrimp Wrap. McDonald’s Austria’s newest limited time offering features large, breaded shrimp pieces in a fruity chili sauce along with a medley of Asian vegetables and cucumbers, all packed inside a wheat-flour tortilla.

McDonald’s California Chicken

McDonald’s. A-6130 Vomp · Industriestrasse 7

Another highlight of the ‘Stars in America’ limited time promotion is a California Chicken sandwich. Quite another head scratcher as a chicken sandwich doesn’t exactly strike me as something Californian, unless you consider the general Californian attitude of being health conscious and if you consider chicken healthier than burgers. This sandwich has no avocados, no Latin American influences, or other typically Californian ingredients. Unless the sandwich contains Californian chicken (Foster Farms, anyone?), the name makes sense. But the chances of that happening are clearly nil. But enough rambling! How does the California Chicken succeed as a sandwich? Continue reading

There’s just something about chocolate that is so unique. Not only is its flavor and richness unparalleled to any other ingredient, its numerous varieties and versatility in the kitchen makes it one of a kind. Chocolate also pairs well with other food products, like nuts and fruit. Coconut and chocolate makes for one great mixture, as McDonald’s has smartly done with its latest pie concoction.

McDonald’s McNoodles

McDonald’s. A-6130 Vomp · Industriestrasse 7

Noodles alongside burgers, fries, and chicken nuggets? Such a bold and daring move McDonald’s has made in Austria, trying to sell this eccentric combination in a European market. Yet, the McNoodles are quite an intriguing product that actually might work. After all, noodles are one of the world’s staple foods. Continue reading
