|Always nice to see the Shrimp Burger getting prime ad space. It was discontinued in Korea about 2 years ago.|
It was almost midnight by the time we ate, so neither of us were hungry, so we only ordered one burger to split between the two of us. This McDonald's was pretty busy for the time of the night, and seemed to be serving business men or friendly university students, no homeless people or 'other' types of people that you might expect to see at a McDonald's at midnight. The burger took a few minutes to cook, so we were given a sign and someone brought it to our table a few minutes later. It was noticeable that it was just cooked, because it was pretty hot. I attempted to break it in half as nicely as I could, but the chicken kind of fell apart into many smaller pieces when I split it. The chicken was indeed 'Juicy', it wasn't all white meat, but probably thigh, which is pretty common in McDonald's in Chinese speaking countries. I liked the flavour, the breading was just enough to add crunch, but not enough to distract from the chicken. The amount of chicken served was pretty impressive, and because we broke it in two, we could see that inside were actual large chunks of chicken, not a processed paste. The bun and mayo weren't anything special, but probably next month's variant will address that problem, it would be very good, if they keep the chicken the same. As I said before, I found a coupon on the street earlier in the day, so at only 240Y, its a good value for Japan, even a standard white bread sandwich at 7-11 costs the same.
