McDonald's Mega Tomago!
Wendy's Lobster Surf And Turf Burger!
From Yahoo! Finance: Japan has had a recent interest in more sophisticated items, and as the chains keep pushing the envelope, you end up getting some pretty bizarre things on the menus.
Fast food is so pathetic.
Isn't it too early in this thread for your inevitably predictable shtick?
You know you love me. How many times did you call Strop strOp in the O's-sox thread?
For serious though, I don't understand how you people ear so much fast food. I'm not a super healthy eater at all, but I manage to avoid fast food just based on principle. Maybe it's because I live and work in major cities, but fast food is never even an option for me.
I'm not mad. Just leave me and my taco bell alone and were good
I about had another heart attack just reading the description of some of those. And the Japanese actually buy those? Some of them were just over the top.
Pretty sure this stuff was designed for salarymen to eat after drinking and groping young girls on the subway before heading home to their wives.
SOCCER SUCKS TOO AMIRITE
That's definitely the difference. When I work in the city there are plenty of options for lunch/dinner that blow fast food away. On the road I run into fewer options that can get me food quick and easy so I end up grabbing fast food. If I have time I'll look for better restaurants, but the convenience factor looms large sometimes. Minor correction though, Baltimore is a big city, not a "major" city.
Baltimore is a nice mid-sized city.
What do you eat when it's 2:30 a.m. and you're drunk off your ass? Last night, I split a 20-piece nugget with someone; it was fantastic.
Trust me, its gonna be worth it if you spend an extra 10 minutes, get online, and find real places to eat, even in Bumfuck, PA. Pretend you are Bourdain or something. You'll learn 100x more about the makeup of America eating at real restaurants and delis and such than you will at another Wendy's or McDonalds. You are gonna have plenty of years once you have kids where finding boring, consistently mediocre food will be necessary. Be adventurous.
A nice bacon egg and cheese on a hot fresh bagel, or street meat
But yea fast food is always acceptable when drunk

"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
Fast food is generally pretty hideous. For reasons not worth explaining, I tried to eat at McDonald's a couple of weeks ago. Borderline inedible. Absolutely nothing enjoyable about it.
I would be willing to make a small exception if McDonald's brought back the deep fried apple pies of yesterdecade. As far as I know you can only get them in other countries. I have found them in Malaysia, Thailand, and (I think) Mexico over the past 15 years or so, and only because I was willing to walk into McDonald's shitshacks in those countries for the solitary purpose of seeking fried pie. Of course in Thailand this confuses the hell out of the employees, who assume a Westerner interested only in pie is looking to provide the filling himself.
Had a weird thing in Taiwan where I hooked up with a few Dutch tourists and they went out of their way to seek out KFC. Due to the Dutch/Taiwanese language barrier and the difference between the way continental Europeans vs. Asians count on their fingers, the three Dutch ended up ordering eight chicken value meals for themselves. In the confusion over that, we ended up with no time left to explore fried-pie availability in China's Cuba.
But as for eating actual meals in boilerplate fast food joints anywhere, much less in foreign countries with great food... nope. Anymore, if I'm in some godforsaken pit with absolutely no seemingly decent restaurants anywhere nearby, then I'll go to the grocery store (virtually every pit has one of those nearby) and buy something borderline worthwhile to eat.
McDonalds in Maine used to have lobster rolls in the summer. It was fine for like 5 bucks.
Wait, McDonald's doesn't have the deep-fried apple pie any longer? I used to love the "hot filling" warning.
It's baked now, and for at least the last 10 years. I think it still has the warning.
Wow, that's sad. The McDonald's pie was awesome when I was a kid. Haven't had one in 30 years. Could really go for one now.
Agreed. It's been about 40 years since I had one. When I was in high school, I worked at the local Mickey D's for about a year. I had all the free pies I wanted. Good times.
Call me a relic, call me what you will,
Say I'm old-fashioned, say I'm over the hill....
That's why Country Kitchens were invented. All the grease your body can soak up. I had a friend that used to swear by those things as a hanover-avoidance precaution.
they still do and the one place i do hit McDonalds is in Montreal for their Poutine...
They have such great food in that city, but that is one vice I go and get..
I have had Kimchi pizza (not good) and bulgogi pizza (very good) when I lived in Korea...
And a lot of places I travel, the KFCs serve beer...
