McDonald's, Hong Kong Style

While we were in Hong Kong, we were hit with McDonald's commercial on its new Shrimp Burger every time we watched TV. We Asians love seafood. You'll never see shrimp burgers from McD's in the U.S., so we just had to try it. My sweet cousin was nice (and crazy) enough to make a midnight McD's run the night before we left.

This was how these burgers were advertised:

And this was the actual burger itself. Where's the whole shrimp I saw on the box? Gipped by shameless marketing, I'm sure. It was too good to be true.

There really were bits and pieces of shrimp in the burger patty, but I can't say there was any shrimp taste.

According to my cousin, we had just missed the Wasabi Filet-O-Fish that were available for a limited time only. She said they were pretty good and came in your choice of a single fillet or double-decker filet! With the double-decker coming in at less than $2.50 USD, they are a steal!
