Hello, oh oh oh, Vienna (McDonald’s) calling. Yep, it’s time for another installment of McDonald’s around the world. This time, the historic city of Vienna, Austria. Starting with the McMenu above, we have the
- 1. Big Mac
- 2. Hamburger Royal (Quarter Pounder with Cheese)
- 3. Hamburger Royal TS (with lettuce and tomato)
- 4. McChicken
- 4+. McChicken Deluxe
- 5. Filet-o-Fish
- 6. 6pc Chicken McNuggets
Not that exciting. The combo options are a salad or fries and a drink.
I had the #1, naturally, and here is what it looked like:
Beautiful, huh? Tasted familiar, although the sauce was a bit tangier and the meat was tough. Can’t say whether the meat is always tough – sometimes I find this at my local McD as well. The fries tasted like they should, and all the Cokes in Austria have sugar, not high fructose corn syrup, so they taste slightly different. I’d kill for a Pepsi here, but they are nowhere to be found.
Working from left-to-right on the actual menu board, we encounter some additional combo options:
- 7. Tsatsiki Wrap (looked like a Greek salad wrap, which would explain the typeface choice)
- 8. Grilled Chicken Wrap
- 9. Steakhouse Wrap
- 10. Crispy Chicken Wrap
Next up, the Der M menu. This consists of three sandwiches, the Der M (regular cheeseburger on funky bread with Swiss cheese), another Der M with bacon, and a Chicken Sensation (the sensation probably being one of disappointment, same as all the other McDonald’s chicken sandwiches). Sorry, that wasn’t entirely fair, I didn’t try it. Moving on.
They have the Chicken Select, plus some criss-cut fries. Then they have the Gebackener Camembert. Gebackener translates as “baked” so I am guessing these are baked versions of fried cheese.
Finally, the value menu, called the Ein Mal Eins, or One Times One, or the 1 Euro menu. They also had the Eins Plus menu for a few extra items. Hard to see in the pic, but the Plus items are a Snack Wrap, Veggie Burger, Chickenburger, Cheeseburger TS, and McDouble. Finally, a familiar mix of frozen desserts.
Always fun trying McD in other countries, but this one was not that strange.
