McDonald's in Taegu

Recently we went to the McDonald's in Taegu. ( I love McDonald's fries when they are hot!) It is kind of funny when you see McDonald's in a foreign country. They are prevalent around the world, aren't they??? They have the ordinary Mickey D's fare except they do not serve Quarter Pounders with Cheese! I think because they are too large. and most of the meals are smaller sized. They also have Korean style burgers such as bulgogi burgers. and shrimp burgers.

Korean is very east to read. It is phonetical- each symbol- is a sound. Read from left to right- this phrase says - joon bee dayt na yo, meaning ' Are you ready?'
This is hilarious. Koreans have many English Words that they use and this says literally- Big Tasty. The Korean pronunciation adds some vowel sounds and it sounds like beeg tay ee suh tee. The smaller print on the top (to the right of new) says 'premium burger' pronounced in Korean as puh ree mee ohm buh guh. Below that it is saying that it is 100 percent beef yadda yadda.

All GONE! =) And it was YUMMY too!

  1. Very interesting! When I was in Hawaii, the McDonald's served saimin with fish cake (looks like ramen with fish cake). The McDonald's Big Breakfast was served with rice (or hash brown). And as in many restaurants there, fruit punch is one of the soft drinks offered. This has been over 20 years ago, but I don't imagine much has changed. Especially seeing how McDonald's targets local markets.

  5. Angie,

    Isn't that funny? Rice at McDonalds? I don't think they serve rice here and I would think of all places they would. In the Philippines they serve rice, spagetti and fried chicken at McDs. (The spagetti was actually pretty good - a bit sweet with hot dogs in it.

    Also, in Hawaii the 7- 11 served manapua(yummy) and the siao pao (dumplings with meat in them) that was so delicious! ( I loved those things!!!) Oh- and they also served musubi which is a rice and spam packed together rolled in laver (seaweed) Oh- how my mouth is watering!!! Obviously I would scrape up change and go on a run to 7 11 too often!

  7. You gotta love it! No quarter pounder in Japan either, but that country has the best McDonald's food I've ever tasted. Everything is cooked as you order it and it's brought out to your table! The food looks perfect, just like the photos! The Japanese pronunciationis MA-KU-DO-NA-RU-DOS. Do you remember what they called McDonald's in the Philippines? McDo! That always made me chuckle when I heard that!

  8. What memories! Do you guys remember that the McDo's in the Philippines served spaghetti, and chicken and rice? In Germany, the shakes all look vanilla, even the chocolate and strawberry ones. I found this out the embarassing way! Boy did they look at me like I was from another planet! No, just another country!
