what was it

OK, it's time for a really tough What Was It? Wednesday. This current Mexican fast food restaurant started out life way back in probably the mid-to-late 1970's as a fast food burger joint. The building has been modified over the years, adding on the eaves and rounding out the top of the roof. Also, the dining room on the right in the picture was originally an open-air patio. The overall appearance of the original structure was very boxy.

Here are some pics from the menu at Burger King in Tokyo's Shibuya district. Lot's of fun, unusual stuff:

Carl's Jr./Hardee's is rolling out a new ad campaign that drops the sexy women and focuses on the food. To mark the transition, the new character "Carl Hardee Sr." takes back over from his son, "Junior," to come back to basics. You can see the first ad below.

mcdonalds chicken bacon geneva

What do you think would be on a McDonald's fast food sandwich called the "Chicken Bacon?" Um, maybe some chicken and some bacon? Well, you'd be half right. The sandwich, found in Geneva, is a fried chicken breast, lettuce and cheese but only a "bacon" sauce. Plus, what I received (above) only loosely resembles the pic the food stylists offer (below, from the kiosk menu screen).

Here are some recent shots from a trip to Geneva this past February. These are grabs from the kiosk menu and you can see that there's some sort of rivalry between the McRaclette Bear and the Rene McChutney Cheese Schudel, two colorful fast food sandwiches from a country unafraid to slap anything between two buns. Enjoy.

mcdonalds mac jr and cheeseburger

 Just for fun, here's a side-by-side comparison of the new McDonald's Mac Jr. next to the standard cheeseburger. I had a feeling they'd both seem about the same size, at least for the patty.
