I’ll begin by saying that if you’re following this blog via email, I won’t hold it against you if you stop now.
So today I went to downtown Toronto, and checked out the Eaton center. Now, I don’t want a typical “that’s what she said” moment, but it was massive. Mindbogglingly so. I think it’s the largest shopping complex in all of Canada, and it is absolutely huge. Just a stupid number of shops. A window shopper’s veritable prison. And I swear, at least 20 Rogers centers within a 10 minute walking distance. Wow.
And an entire floor dedicated to a food court! It was heaven. And that now brings me to the meat of my tale. What should I have for lunch? Wow, the quality of this blog has fallen. But I digress.
Me being me, I figured I may as well be as cheap as possible, so I headed to McDonald’s. I thought I’d try the famous (infamous?) Big Mac, and call it an experience. And frankly, I was disappointed.
It was, in one word, bland. If it wasn’t for the special sauce, which was bland as well, the burger would have had absolutely no flavor. Nor was it filling. There wasn’t a part of it I enjoyed. And, as this review will be, it was nothing but disappointing, bland and brief.
What hurt the most, however, was the knowledge that followed the meal: I had been conned. Straight scammed. Highway robbery. Remember the part about me wanting to be cheap? Wasn’t the case. I paid over $11 for a Big Mac and a McChicken. $11! Those weren’t the cheap prices McD’s is known for. And the first thing I saw as I left the mall? A billboard advertising McDonald’s value picks, at $1.69 each. I overpaid by around ten times what I should have given. I left dejected and deeply disappointed. Never again.
The only thing that could make it worse? The food, ah, shall we say, didn’t even sit well in my system. Never have I been so filled with chagrin. McDonald’s is a poor scam, and should be treated as such. My critical recommendation? Avoid the Big Mac at all costs. Little as though it may seemingly be, it just isn’t worth it.
TL;DR? The Big Mac is nothing more than an overpriced, over-hyped, bland meager burger. 2/10 would not eat again. Stick to Wendy’s.
