It Had To Be Done: McDonald's In Hong Kong

I felt a little under-the-weather today -- tired -- and the drizzly weather here was not helping matters much.

So, in an effort to eat something safe and quick, I hit a 24-hour McDonald's near the hotel.

Did I say safe?

Well, the first thing that greeted me was the Ebi burger. Yes, shrimp.

Normally I like all things shrimp but in this case, the thing looked like one of Mickey D's hash browns with little shrimp pushed into it.

And then plopped down between a hamburger roll. If that is not enough for you, you can get a double one with two patties!

I settled on this cheesy thing with pasta, sausage, egg and noodles in a clear broth in a big bowl served with the same greasy fries we have in America and a Coke Zero.

Check out this link here and, I should add, that it didn't look that "good" when it arrived on my tray.

Hey, the whole combo meal was still under $4 US; what can you get at an American McDonald's for that price?

A picture I found on the web; yum -- cheesy pasta buried in broth with a McBreakfast sausage and the famous "egg product" so familiar from McDonald's breakfast selections!
