It is fun to see the different personalities each country brings to its best restaurant, McDonald's. When I was in Italy I was pretty sure that the McDonald's there would have pizza, kinda like when they tried to introduce the McPizza in the USA. I am glad that didn't work out. Anyway, I was wrong, no McPizza. The menu in Rome was very similar to the one in the US, just a bit abridged. One thing that did totally stand out to me though was that they had fried shrimp! I thought that was cool. As always, I was there for one thing... the Chicken McNugget. On my last day I fought through my infantile ear infection, exhaustion & dizziness and found the McDonald's right across the street from the Pantheon, how historic! Jen M was kind enough to go with me on this expedition. It was an expedition because the Trevi Fountain McDonald's had no power and was closed.
Overall, I thought the chicken nuggie was pretty good, but still prefer the American version. I think the American version has a lighter more airy batter. This nuggie was a bit more crisp and hard in Italy. The meat was totally white and for my chicken, I like that. Jen M said she prefered the Italian version. Really, both are quite delicious! The dipping sauces are similar to what I found in Spain, honey mustard, bbq and some curry thing. I just went with the bbq and honey mustard one. I guess it is Italy, it would have been cool if they had a pesto or tomato dipping sauce. I love some sauce!
So, there it is, one more McDonalds conquered. I can't wait for my next one!
