Every out-of-country experience, no matter where you’re headed, requires a stop at the local McDonald’s.
All over the world, the #1 selling fast food chain is not only serving up the standard Big Mac, but in each market, a special surprise is always waiting.
And my stop in Amsterdam has dug up Hollands little secret!
At first glance, the sandwich appears to be an over cooked filet o fish smothered in tartar sauce, but it is actually a lot more than meets the eye!
During the first few bites, as you swish the sammie around in your mouth, you try to determine what you’re about to swallow.
The crispy corn dog shell cracks open to expose a thick and pasty pancake batter texture with random chucks of beef swirled in.
You’re still unsure so you go to the box for clues..
Not knowing a lick of Dutch, I make the assumption, based on the photos, that I am now eating a wooden cow, a pair of shoes, an extinct dinosaur sauce wrapped in a brown papery dutch flag with a heavy serving of an illegal white substance.
As I wiped the drippings from my face, I grabbed a handful of fries to help cram the gluey substance down and with a swig of soda to clear my throat, the rest of the McMystery went into the trash.
Possibly too refined for my palette, the McDonalds McKROKET was not my cup of tea.
For now I’ll just stick to my standard order of the classic Big Mac…. extra pickles!
