Something to Declare: For a Taste of Local Culture, Head to a McDonald’s


Some say eating at McDonald’s abroad is cheating, that true travellers should fully immerse themselves in the local cuisine. But there’s plenty you can learn about a country by visiting the local McD’s. The best meal I’ve ever eaten wasn’t in a Parisian bistro or at a hawker’s stand in Bangkok, it was in Jordan, by a roundabout in Aqaba. I ordered a Ramadan McFeast, comprising a Big Mac, a Quarter Pounder, a Filet-O-Fish, a shovelful of chicken nuggets and a Coke big enough to take a footbath in. I vanquished it all as soon as the sun sank on the far shore of the Red Sea. I’ve eaten in the Hong Kong branch that will host your McWedding, and sipped frothy weissbier to the soundtrack of oompah in a Munich restaurant.
