Let me start this review by saying something to my Singapore readers. Your food is not spicy. I've had a couple people ask if I haven't reviewed the McSpicy because I thought it would be too spicy, and I LOVE spicy food so that is defiently not the reason why. I love the food here, but I've yet to have a meal here that I've even found what I would consider to be 'spicy'. I keep a bag of dried chillis in my desk to add to my mixed rice lunches, as sometimes its just too bland without any heat. Despite being asked by many aunties in the hawker centres if I wanted my noodles spicy, nothing compares to the Korean food I used to eat back in Seoul whatsoever. The McSpicy has the exact same problem.

The McSpicy is pretty much identical to the Shanghai Spicy Chicken burger that is available in Seoul, except that its LESS spicy here, and it costs about $2-4 more. You can't get a double in Korea, and that's probably good for your arteries and waistline. It's a regular menu item, and though this is the first time I've had the "Double McSpicy", I had it back when it used to called the "Mega McSpicy" back in 2009 (photos at the end of the review). I never wrote a review on it, because I always hated the photo I took, and I just found it a little disinteresting compared to some of my other items I have in the backlog. My fiancée and I used the $5 lunch coupon for the Double McSpicy and a Coke Zero. Even then it's still somewhat expensive, because in Seoul a single is only 3000KRW ($3.48SGD, or $2.84USD) for a proper lunchtime combo, without the need for coupon!
