So let’s talk about Binks! Specifically, let’s talk about his one tradition when traveling. For whatever reason that started with whatever trip/year/cockamame idea, Binks insists on eating a Big Mac at every country he visits.
When I first heard of this tradition, we were in Rome. It was one of our last meals, and upon hearing that he was going to spoil one of our last authentic meals in Rome with a BigMac, I was irritated at the least. Why he would choose an artery-clogging meal over a wonderful pasta dish with fresh tomato sauce was beyond me.
So, I sat with him and watched him eat a BigMac in Rome, and have him analyze it to me as tasting just like the one in U.S. What a crock. Then came Tokyo. Also the same. Again, what a waste in the land flowing with sake and sushi!
Then……………………..came India. Upon seeing the menu, I knew I had to try.
The “happy price menu.” 🙂
Now, I love salads. And I love me some sandwiches. This is the one time that putting them together may not be the best idea!
As the majority of India is Hindu and Hindus do not eat beef, McDonald’s in India do not have beef options. So, there was the Maharaja Mac.
I didn’t get the bottom half but you get the picture.
I had the VeggieMac.
It was actualy pretty good! If they had this option in the U.S., I would partake – on my very rare visit to the golden arches.
Needless to say, the fries are the same:
Is this how I prefer to eat abroad? No! But, do I enjoy watching him and the way he calmly unwraps his ‘burger’ and prepares to conduct his experiment? McYes.
