In the name of food science, and hunger, I had Dutch McDonalds for dinner one of my first nights here.
First things first, everything you've been told is a lie: They do have Quarter Pounders in Holland. No sign of a Royale with Cheese anywhere.
My dinner. I mean, my experiment:
First of all, look at these sauces. Chili Dip and FrySauce.
NOT the FrySauce you were expecting, is it, Utah?
Chilidip was for my shrimps. Yes, McFriedShrimps, four for 2 Euro! And they're actual shrimp, too. Not a shrimp past shaped like shrimp.
Next, the McKroket. This is an example of McDonalds being a good guest and interpreting a national dish in their own manner.
What a happy looking little puck of food.
And nice, grainy looking mustard.
And on the inside: Mashed potatoes and pieces of meat, or something like that.
And finally, the main course, a taste of the good ol' USA, the 1955 Burger. Yes, I know, the 1955 burger! The American class you know and love.
What is it? A not terribly good giant burger with grilled onion and bacon but no cheese. It needed cheese so bad.
Additional things of note: Dutch McDonalds has bendy straws. And the cashiers are super nice and super happy Africans. I recommend going just for the cashiers.
And the shrimp.
