I'll take the Chili Cheese Nuggets, the Tom Yum Crunch, the Frosty Coffee Jelly (on looks alone), the Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream, the Spinach & Parmesan nuggets, and possibly the Big Spicy Paneer Wrap.  (I'd have to try paneer first, but it sounds like I'd like it.)

I'm going to Prague in May, and I plan on avoiding chain restaurants when I'm there, but I might make a play for those chili cheese nuggets when I'm drunk.

Both the Eugene Walmart Superstore and the Springfield Walmart Neighborhood Market carry red velvet cake ice cream.

The wing shop I work in shares a kitchen with the Mexican place next door. Me and the supervisor from there used to experiment with mixing various items.

The best? A churrodilla, with two cut up churros sealed inside a tortilla with butter and our maple cinnamon sauce. Delicious

Tom Yum Crunch and Cili Cheese Nuggets please.

None of those sounded all that good to me.

So much South Asian food, and nothing with SPAM in it? Not possible.

The only thing that sounds remotely good on that list is the red velvet cake ice cream, but you can get that at any grocery store so it doesn't seem very special.

That McD's shrimp Fellatio Fish actually looks pretty good!

I want the green tea macha blizzard and the Shrimp burger... infact id eat everything on that list.

I wish American fast food would include more spicy stuff.  It's all so bland, even when they make a "hot" item it is tuned for bland palates.

Chili cheese nuggets and tom yum chicken, please.

I'll pass on the Big Spicy Peener Wrap, though.

What?  Big Spicy Paneer Wrap?  Oh.  Well, yes, then, please.

Good luck getting the tweaked out chuckleheads who form the majority of Burger King's US workforce on board with that.

They can't even make my cheeseburger right half the time.

I generally avoid Asian interpretations of American fast food (corn on pizza?!) when I am travelling in that region of the world.  But you can get this at any McDonalds for breakfast in the Philippines.  It's pretty good.  It's fried rice with garlic... and local type of sausages (known as "longinisa") and an egg.

Well, let's put it this way. European fast food tastes better than U.S. regular food.

Lotteria is the bomb.

The only thing that looked good was that paneer wrap. The rest is pretty much terrible or common. Specifically red velvet ice cream.

The chili cheese nuggets sound good, but what I really want in the US for fast food are Doner sammiches. Dear gods those things were heaven, especially after drinking.

Dingleberry Dickwad: Doner sammiches


Neat trick: Those are called gyros in the U.S.

/no, not quite the same (you have to get the lamb ones if you are looking for doners/donairs specifically), especially if you're looking for that sweet condensed milk garlic sauce that's NOT tzaziki

Gyros in the US, at least most of the ones I've seen are served with a cucumber sauce on pita bread, whereas the doners I seem to recall had a strong garlic yogurt sauce served on a thicker bread that was pressed and heated. Very different taste than gyros.

Something labeled "carpet cake" and "red velvet" by a person named Duff...is ripe for any jokes that happen for those with sick minds such as myself. "Duff Sez; Dive in and munch on our red carpet cake"

Not that different, really. Not quite the same, but it's in the ballpark, and it's quite good on its own merits. Also, Doner varies from place to place, it's not always the same. I've certainly had a few in europe that featured tzaziki. Oh, and that thicker bread, if you're thinking of the semicircular type where the kabob is served into the pocket, is still pita.

So really, the only major difference is that the gyro is served as a wrap in pita, doner kabob is served in a pita pocket. Hardly a difference worth going nuts over.

\This is where I realize I haven't had a kabob/gyro in a while.
\\Need to fix that.
\\\Need to find a good greek place too, for that matter.
\V Any DC farkers got ideas? My office is near the convention center.

Doner Sandwhich in Germany where I ate loads of them.

Gyro that I've typically had in the US.

Like I said, cucumber vs garlic sauce and pita bread vs heated and pressed flatbread. The taste is pretty different.

Those spinach and parmesan nuggets look pretty good. I have a bunch of leftover sauteed spinach I didn't have any plans for, maybe I'll mix in some parmesan, roll em' up and coat them in Shake'n'Bake and see what happens.

Your link says that what you ate is a German variation. Not the standard article most people associate with Kabob. Standard kabob is the same thing you get as a lamb gyro here in the US. Or anywhere greek food is served.

As an aside, did you know that when you get lamb gyros/kabobs here in the US, the meat is usually lamb blended with beef, not pure lamb? It's a scandal, I tell ya!

\At least it's not horse.
\\Unless you're Sweden.

I absolutely don't understand why McDonalds doesn't have something like a "McDonald's International" restaurant at certain places in the US, which would feature the best of the McDonalds items from around the world.

They are missing out on TONS of money by not doing this.
 
2013-10-30 01:03:49 AM
There's no such thing as a "standard" gyros/doner kebab/shawarma -- each country, and often each region within a country, has its own version based on local tastes and preferences.

Yeah, I've never been a big fan of the tzazkiki/cucumber sauce most Kabob places serve, but I love the heavy garlic sauce most of the places I've visited throughout Germany served.

I imagine the people at McDonalds have already considered it and  done studies to determine it's not as effective as just putting up another store.

And I'd try the Tom Yum chicken, chili chicken nuggets (you can get chicken nuggets with cheese in them at Kroger), and a green tea blizzard (with no mix-ins)
