When I travel to new places I love checking out McDonald’s to see what local menu items might be offered.

McD’s also appeals to Lucas, mainly for the toy but it also offers a taste of home (we rarely eat there at home) if/ when you get tired of the local food.

Over the years, I’ve written about McDonalds in we visited in: Continue reading McDonald’s Hong Kong Serves Mac ‘N Cheese Sandwiches!

What Did We Try At McDonald’s Korea?

During our trip to South Koreawe arrived late in Seoul tired and hungry. While I would’ve liked to have had some local food, Kim and I decided that we needed to be quick and play it safe for our first meal. In the process we’d still get to check off something we do when visiting a new country.

There was a McDonald’s across the street from our guesthouse so it was a good time to check out what local menu items might be available. Lucas would be happy to visit to get a toy! Win, win! Continue reading What Did We Try At McDonald’s Korea?

McDonald’s Taking Reservations for Valentine’s Day

Over the years writing my blog, I’ve shared numerous posts about how I love to visit McDonald’s when visiting a new country.

While I do enjoy seeing and trying what local menu items might appear on the McD’s menu, I wouldn’t really call the fast food joint a great place to consider for Valentine’s Day. Continue reading McDonald’s Taking Reservations for Valentine’s Day

McDonald’s Testing Out Walk Through Lane

Walk through

McDonald’s is well known for the Big Mac, Happy Meals, Ronald McDonald and more…

While I rarely dine at McDonald’s at home, I try to visit whenever I go to foreign countries to see what kind of locally- inspired menu items might be offered.

A big convenience of McDonald’s is that its fast food and they also offer drive-through service.

What if you’re walking by and don’t feel like going inside the restaurant? What if you’d like to get walk through service?  Continue reading McDonald’s Testing Out Walk Through Lane

No Watching Porn at Starbucks or McDonald’s

When looking for wifi during our travels, Kim and I used to seek out McDonald’s. They were usually a reliable place to go if we wanted to get online. In recent years I’ve found McDonald’s wifi to not be as consistent with many locations not even offering free wifi.

Another place to stop in for free wifi is Starbucks, although I can’t recall ever going there to get online. (I also don’t drink coffee so why would I!)

However, both McDonald’s and Starbucks have put their foot down recently with how some customers use the free wifi. Continue reading No Watching Porn at Starbucks or McDonald’s

I’ve written many times about how I love to visit (and try out local menu items at) McDonald’s during our travels.

Kim sent me a story from Grub Street which made me scream out a big WHAT when I read that someone paid $96,000 for a bottle of McDonalds Big Mac Sauce in the UK! Continue reading $96000 for A Bottle of McDonald’s Big Mac Sauce?

I’ve written many times in the past about how I love to check out McDonald’s around the world but rarely visit McD’s at home.

I have a few reasons for visiting McD’s when traveling. The main reason is that I love to see what local menu-items might be available in each country. The other reason is that a visit to McD’s for Lucas is like a treat. We don’t really go at home but he loves getting a toy. Also they usually have free Wifi which comes in handy when abroad. (Surprisingly, the McD’s locations we visited around Japan did not have Wifi.)

Here are some countries that I’ve visited McDonald’s and wrote about: Continue reading A McDonalds Menu Item in Japan I’d LOVE To Try
