belarusWhile we’re stuck inside due to the coronavirus pandemic, I’m trying to catch up on posts I had previously planned to write…

I’ve been working on catching up on my McDonald’s reviews!

During the summer of 2018, we went on a month-long trip to Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. The first stop of this trip was to Belarus. While there we stopped into a McD’s location in the country’s capital, Minsk. Continue reading Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s In Minsk, Belarus

Tasty Souvenirs From Our Deep South Road Trip

Road TripDuring Winter Break 2019, the Michael W Travels family took a road trip to the Deep South.

This was an interesting experience for us and probably the longest amount of time we spent driving on a daily basis for a prolonged amount of time.

We headed off from our home in Brooklyn, NY, making stops in states like Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama and North Carolina. Some of the states we had previously visited, for others it was our first time checking them out. Continue reading Tasty Souvenirs From Our Deep South Road Trip

McDonald’s Giving Free Meals To First Responders & Healthcare Workers

McDonald'sWhile my kids love McDonald’s (more so for the toys than the food), I love visiting the Golden Arches while traveling to see what’s offered in international destinations.

To date, I’ve posted about McD’s in 25 countries. (Check the bottom of the post for links to my reviews.)

I don’t know a lot about the company’s charities, but I’d guess that we’ve all heard of the Ronald McDonald House. Continue reading McDonald’s Giving Free Meals To First Responders & Healthcare Workers

Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s in Baku, Azerbaijan

AzerbaijanIn the summer of 2018, the Michael W Travels family visited three countries in Eastern Europe and then headed over to the Caucasus to visit three more.

Our first stop was Azerbaijan. We spent a few days in Baku and also took a day trip outside the city.

Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s In Chisinau, Moldova

Moldova Since we’e stuck indoors,  I’m trying to catch up on posts I never got around to writing in the past.

Back in the summer of 2018 the Michael W Travels family took a trip to Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. I recently I wrote about our experience at McDonalds in Ukraine (check out my review at the link below). That wasn’t the only country where we found the boys’ favorite American restaurant chain.

While visiting Chisinau, Moldova we only had one full day to check out the city. As we walked around, we made a stop at McDonald’s for lunch. While we rarely eat McD’s at home, we always stop in while visiting a new country to see what interesting items might be offered.

Food Review: The Burger & Wings From Teddy’s Bar & Grill- Brooklyn, NY

Teddy's Bar & GrillI’d place burgers at this point as my second favorite food, just behind pizza.

Over the years, I’ve tried burgers at some of the top places in New York City. I’ve also sought out burgers from some of the oldest and most classic bars and restaurants in the area.

One of my favorite burgers in the country is served at Peter Luger Steakhouse open since 1887. Another excellent burger can be had at Keen’s Steakhouse which opened in 1885. While I love Old Town Bar (open since 1892), we weren’t big fans of their cheeseburger. Continue reading Food Review: The Burger & Wings From Teddy’s Bar & Grill- Brooklyn, NY

Shake Shack

Yesterday I shared news about a limited time Shake Shack x Pat LaFrieda Collab: Steak Fries to go.

This special menu item would only be available at two locations, one in New York City and one in New Jersey.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants are doing food delivery or to go orders. To get out and still practice social distancing, we decided to drive to Shake Shack’s West Village Innovation Kitchen to give the steak frites a try.

Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s In Ukraine

ukraineWhile we rarely dine at McDonald’s at home, we have to pay a visit to the fast food chain in every country we visit.

It’s always fun to see what interesting menu items are offered at international McDonald’s locations.

During our visit to Ukraine, Kim, Lucas and Theo met me at the McDonalds in Kiev’s Independence Square for dinner after I got back from my trip to Chernobyl. Continue reading Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s In Ukraine
