McDonald’s, Covent Garden, London
In any new city, one must eventually succumb to the convenience, popularity of consistency that is McDonald’s. I found myself in that position as I sought a fast bite before a showing of Aladdin. Dining in, I shamelessly am all too familiar with the menu ordering system and went for a medium fries, chicken fillet burger and an on-season chicken peri-peri wrap. Under £5 is a helpful way to make London life work, but you can kind of taste the cheapness in the value burger. The patty didn’t quite taste like chicken, and that’s probably all that needs to be said about that.
I liked the fried chicken tender (tasted liked chicken) and salad mix in the wrap, but it’s all a bit spoiled but something that is not Peri-Peri sauce. It’s more like a spicier tomato chutney, which I was not expecting at all. This led to me deconstructing the meal. I do like McDonald’s fries, that hasn’t changed and it’s all the same sort here too.
