McDonalds

Postby euroman » Sun Aug 29, 2010 5:37 pm

I find that the food at McDonalds is excellent. The meat tasts fresh and the chips are freshly baked.
Also they have some nice sauces. The staff is very friendly too and the restaurants are posh and clean.

In the US and in Europe. The food is tasteless and the restaurants are filthy. Late at night, the are full of weirdos.

Many will be down on McDonalds because they opened in the plaza de armas in Cuzco, but I disagree. They are franchised, meaning in this case, Peruvian owned and they conformed to the signage of the area.

They are one of the few companies that will hire people with disabilities in Peru.

I do not go there because I do not like the burgers. They add those Peruvian spices to their meat and being a cattle farmer from Kansas, I like the taste of pure beef. That is why, on the rare times I go to American fast food other than Pizza, I go to Burger King because they offer 100% pure beef hamburgers in addition to the Carne Bravo (Peruvian style). Though I find Burger King's service to be very very bad here.

With McDonald's I have the feeling I'm eating a piece of carton and Burger King is like chewing on a wet sponge. In both places you have to add a lot of sauces to make it taste like something. Bembos, however, has nice thick burgers that at least give you the impression you eat something that used to moo.

If you like lots of non beef fillers in your burgers, then please, by all means, stick with Bembos.

I am a farm boy, I raised cattle and I only want an all beef burger.

It was amusing to open the "Peruvian Cuisine" forum and see the first post as "McDonalds." :)

We don't have McDs in Arequipa but I must say, when I have traveled to Lima or to Arica Chile, it tastes SO good to me....and I don't eat it at all in the States...so maybe it is better quality? Or maybe it's just deprivation that distorts my perspective...funny.

McDonald's tastes so good, because it reminds you of home. Wherever you go, may it be the South Pole, if you go to the Mac, it always tastes the same.

Please, give me a break! You must be badly homesick to enjoy Mc Donald when there are so many good and affordable restaurants for almost the same price. In two years, I have been twice to Mc and once to Burger King. each time the experience left me with an icky feeling in the stomach. Come on, aren´t you in Peru just to get away from junk food?

it is interesting the number of people on this board that believe if you do not think as they do, you are wrong and bad.

Then feel the need to attack those who feel differently.

It reflects bad on the people who do it.

pingouin, if you do not want to go there or do not like it, do not go, but why on God's green earth do you think that if others do not feel the way you do that they are bad and wrong and that you are superior and have the right to not only judge them, but speak to them in a cruel way?

Sorry if I hurt anybody´s feeling on such a trivial issue. However, I insist, Mc Donals´s and the likes including Bembos, just sell junk food at an outrageous price. It is my opinion and everybody on this forum has the right to express it even if is in a non sugarcoated way that Mc Donald´s is the epitomy of American bad taste and imperialism at its worst. If you are not convinced of that just watch Supersize it and fast food nation( I just watched the latter a few days ago on SAT TV)

And please, don´t take Mc Donald´s as a personal issue

I like to have Burger King, once in a blue moon. McDonald is ok and Wendy's even better. A visit every few months does it for me, just satisfying a craving. I can understand Remigius eating something that reminds him of home.
I guess that would be the same for my kids (now grown-ups) who many times after a soccer or baseball game used to go and get a burger. Yes, I am glad they enjoyed that time. I am a good cook and my family sat for decades at the table together for dinner (I am doing some pre-emptive action), but those little memories, activated when you smell or taste something that reminds you of home or your childhood are good for the heart and for the spirit. (Hey, I love to eat liver, much to my husband's dismay! LOL)

And in the Christmas Spirit, for those who disagree (wow, don't you have something better to pick on?), Bah Humbug! LOL ;-)

Any non-American chain import places? I ate at Chili's the other day (just because it was there) and had churrasco instead of a burger. Now I wonder how their burger compares to an American Chili's. (The churrasco was very tough, although did taste good once you got to chewing through it.)

Have any Expats opened an "authentic" burger joint (not a franchise)?

try a sanguchon...there are a ton of different ones all around Lima and they are ridiculously good...the only thing that always throws me is that there are always like 100+ choices....

also, if you like Asada, there are two carts in the middle of Parque Kennedy in Miraflores that make amazing carne asada sandwiches...

I am almost ashamed to admit that I was crazy for some meat so I spent the 28 soles for the Kobe burger at Bembos.

While I would NOT say it was worth the price, it was a mighty fine burger.

I went to Chillis as well. Burgers are fine but expensive.

TGI Fridays is serving a special for lunch. A ceasar salad, fries and two large softdrinks for 14 soles.
And a very nice service.

A few members of my host family wanted an American food experience, so I took them to Tony Roma's at Jockey Plaza. I was surprised how much LARGER the racks of ribs were from the Tony Roma's portions in the USA! None of us could finish our entrees, and we took a huge bag home of food. Overall, the ribs were pretty authentic American BBQ, the fries just as good as in the US, but the menu also had some Peruvian dishes. It was funny explaining to my friends what the potato skin appetizers were, and what sour cream was. Peruvians love mayonnaise, but my friends were shocked when the only mayo they could get was honey mustard mayo, which they hated!

One of my friends ordered a shrimp dish which showed (on the menu) it being served on a giant portobello mushroom. When it was served, it was actually served on a set of five tiny portobellos. I guess they can't get the giant ones in Peru? It was still delicious, though.

In soles, it was expensive, sure.... but converting to dollars, it was a bit cheaper than what I would have paid in the US. That is, for what we ordered, anyway. Three entrees, two appetizers, two cocktails, one bottled water (me, the driver) came to S/. 230 I think.

I haven't eaten there yet because I am programmed to stay away from TGIF because every one I ever went to in the US was filthy (I guess they have a poor corporate policy on cleaning the tables and dishes.) Tables are always greasy, dishes dirty, forks still have food on them.

But the one at Jockey looked pristine! The place was so clean, it sparkled, and given that it is kinda outdoors (near the parking garage), you'd think it would be filthy. Not at all. So I might give it a try next time I am hankering for some US style food.

I experienced as well that fast food outlets and places liket TGI Fridays, Chillis...in the US are often filthy and an amount of lowlife, junks, weirdos and other undisirables are hanging around those places.
Here in Peru those place are spotless and you always get an friendly service.
Customers of these outlets in Peru are also better dressed.

I like McDonalds in Peru. Much better and different than in the US or Europe.

Staff is friendlier and restaurant are cleaner. Also the food is better and the have nicer salsas.

At Plaza San Miguel, Mc Donalds has a table full of newspapers and magazines you can look at for free.

There used to be a couple Hooters in Lima. The last one standing (or one of the last) I think was or maybe it still is in Jockey Plaza although I must warn you, the wings there are much more expensive than the wings in Tarapoto. Maybe someone who lives in La Molina can verify it shut down (I hardly ever make it out to the burbs).

The last one standing (or one of the last) I think was or maybe it still is in Jockey Plaza although I must warn you, the wings there are much more expensive than the wings in Tarapoto. Maybe someone who lives in La Molina can verify it shut down (I hardly ever make it out to the burbs).


I went once to the one in Larcomar with some friends and the only thing hooting could actually have been a real owl. I remember my friend being really disappointed and his wife very happy.

I cannot drink coffee myself but I heard if you want to drink a good cup of coffee, the Mac has the best.
