This appeared on a wall near my home yesterday.

Allegedly it is breaded chicken leg meat and salad in a football-shaped bun to celebrate the football world cup in Russia.

 

10元 is $1.60 USD

You are, of course, correct. Brain fart on my part. Have edited.

Whew! I thought when I saw that 16 cents for something that McD's charges about $6 USD for here and thought, okay so it's 38 times more expensive to eat here and they might be using much better chicken over there. So now it's only 4 or 5 times as expensive to eat over here.

 

I feel better, I think? Still I know y'all have access to better mainstream chickens than we do, not to mention the cheap and well raised ducks. I feel better. I really do, I think? :D

 

I have been seeing a lot of ads for McDonald's Quarter Pounder here. They're saying they cook it up to order now, so it's hot and fresh. What a concept. *eyerolly* That is what they used to do years ago and what made them the behemoth they are. I haven't tried the new ones. The one and only Quarter Pounder I ever ate was borderline inedible. I don't believe I even finished it. This new strategy sounds like a step firmly in the right direction, though, and I hope it works for them and maybe expands into more of their items. Fresh and hot is good. Cold and stale, not so much.
