Back to Old School:
We’ve been living in Dubai all of our years and lord knows the countless times we’ve sought after McDonald’s to satisfy our fuss-free and incredibly affordable fast food cravings. With over 300 restaurants reviewed, fine dining and the likes, we thought it would only be fair to do a post of the most visited and loved fast food brand in Dubai and most probably the world.
If you are a regular follower of our blog, you’ll be aware that WhereMyFoodAt is all about trying something new; be it an ingredient, a dish, a restaurant or even a new range of burgers at a fast food joint. After the major success of the ‘Taste of the World’ campaign where burgers were inspired by ingredients and flavors from around the world, McDonald’s decided to drop another bomb with the new Signature Collection, and we just knew we had to try it.
The New Signature Collection:
Let’s be honest, gourmet burgers for a ridiculously low price? None of us saw this coming! McDonald’s Arabia has somehow managed to create three premium burgers that not only look decadent and sinful but taste pretty darn good too! Needless to say, we tried them all.
We started off with The Clubhouse comprising a perfectly moist and glossy Artisan roll filled with tangy Big Mac sauce (our favorite), lettuce, tomato, crispy beef strips, Emmental cheese, caramelized onions and a thick, juicy patty of prime cuts of pure Angus beef. The highlight of the entire burger would definitely have to be that beautiful bun that wraps the entire burger up beautifully and the textural play of the crispy beef strips that adds a beautiful crunch.
We also tried the Chicken Mexicano comprising of guacamole (of course), jalapeno, lettuce, tomato, Emmental cheese, mayonnaise and a crunchy chicken breast. For those of you who don’t like beef, this one’s definitely for you! The crunchy and juicy chicken breast with a hint of spice is what stood out for us. We loved the taste of the guacamole, however, we wish the was a bit more. All in all, it’s a pleasantly appetizing burger that comprises freshness and flavor with a little bit of heat.
Finally, we tried The Mushroom (mind you, this is definitely not vegetarian). What we loved about this burger was the strong hint of black pepper mayo. This ingredient is definitely a new addition to McDonald’s and we’re already obsessed. The black pepper mayo has got a subtle pungent flavor that goes well with the caramelized onions and grilled mushrooms. The thick Angus beef patty and our favorite, Artisan roll, rounds the burger up perfectly.
