By now, you would have been bombarded by the latest blitz of McDonald's advertisement about their just-launched-yesterday GCB which is actually Great-tasting Chicken Burger! I'm not sure about you but when my colleague, A, showed me the advert on their facebook page I was captivated by the thick and fat juicy burger with loads of fresh lettuce and dripping sauce in between the sesame seeds bun. Can't wait so I arranged to try this for lunch today.
Based on the adverts... this burger is supposed to have GRILLED whole chicken thigh, GORGEOUS iceberg lettuce, GLORIOUS char-grilled sauce within GOLDEN sesame seeds bun!
This is how GRILLED, GORGEOUS, GLORIOUS and GOLDEN got interpreted in real...
Here are more... comparison in size and visual.
Looked kinda pathetic isn't it??? Sighhh we always get suckered into their beautiful ads but yet still die die want to try a bite! Despite errrmmm the shortcomings but I have to say GCB is really delicious. Both my colleagues said the same too. The chicken thigh is not really the entire whole thigh, perhaps just a thin piece from a thigh, marinaded battered and grilled. I liked how it's grilled to retain the juiciness. The flavours were great but a tad high on MSG level since we have to keep on downing water to satisfy our thirst when we were back in the office.
It's not cheap either... burger alone on ala-carte is RM8 and the Medium set which includes a pack of fries and aerated drink will cost you RM11.90 excluding the 5% Government tax. Could have cut down the price by just offering the burger in waxed paper without the paper box. Totally NOT environmentally friendly at all!
Sighhh guess what? We're going again for some GCB next week hahaha we're born suckers, aren't we??!!! Hahaha
