I feel cheated

Mac launched a new burger recently, the Breaded Salmon Burger with Paella Spice Mix. I went to have a try because I am kind of tired of the usual Fish Fillet Burger.

When I opened up the burger, I feel kind of cheated from the look of it. The fish looks the same as the usual fish fillet except it is breaded and looks more fried. How about the taste of it? It does taste okay and slightly different from the usual Fish Fillet Burger maybe because of the sauce and maybe because I was hungry. Yet I cannot say I am satisfied. Sometimes it also depends on the staff who prepared the food, if the staff did a slipshod job, then the burger won't turn out well.
The burger costed me S$5.70. Let me show you their promo burger so you would know it is all advertising gimmicks.
I also had my favourite Hot Fudge Sundae.
Moral of the story - do not be deceived by all the advertising gimmick and packaging but it seems that I never learn. This is the second time I fall into such tricks and gimmicks.

Hmm. Not sure it is already available here or not.

I don't think McD have this here. I have learnt not to expect too much from McD.

I hardly go to Mac. I agree that we are easily deceived by the advertising gimmicks.

Picture is for illustration purposes only. Always remember that. Hehe.

Yeah, I saw the burger too being advertised at McD but haven't try before cos I seldom have McD. Anyway, even if I eat, I will go for the chicken burger.

Rose: Maybe don't have, cos I find that SG and Malaysia menu tend to be different

Libby said...

Mun: True, fastfood cannot expect too much

Libby said...

Nancy: Good that you seldom go Mac, cos fastfood is unhealthy, I only eat fastfood when I have no choice

Libby said...

Merryn: I tend to be deceived by picture

Libby said...

Chris: Frankly speaking, I prefer KFC than Mac, but sometimes when I have no choice, I eat Mac, I switch between chicken and fish burgers

Same thing in my blog today - looked so nice in the photo, actual thing was such a disappointment.

The promo picture looks really good, haha.. Oh yes, the real burger looks more dark, more fried I suppose.. I usually go for Big Mac & chicken nuggets.. And drinks changed to Milo (their Milo is delicious, like Milo in a van), and lastly, strawberry sundae for the kids.. Their sundae is always nice, never go wrong with kids around..

The moment they use the word Salmon, it is already a huge mistake!

Phong Hong said...

It's usually like that, what we get is not the same as in the photos :(

Hayley said...

hehehe, this is not surprising!
So now lesson learn, next time just don't expect too much from advertisement!

Libby said...

RG: Ya, I also doubt that is really salmon, is it really salmon?

Libby said...

Princess Ribbon: I like sundae too, I usually will order the Hot Fudge Sundae

Libby said...

PH: Lesson learned

Hayley: Ya man

SK and I are always victims of those Mac burger chains. Their photos always looked bigger, tastier and nicer than what we actually ordered. Tipu! Tipu!
