The best of black and white 3 days ago
When I saw the promotion for these black and white burgers, I just couldn't wait.
In China, they served these Black and White burgers before but they were mini ones and each box had a mini black burger and a mini white burger, but in Hong Kong McDonald's are smart because the burgers are standard sizes so you have to go again to try the other one.
The new series are quite Taiwanese style because of the Taiwanese pearls, but the burgers themselves were not that Asian because they contain mashed potato and lovely mushroom/truffle sauce.
As soon as they were launched I ordered the McDelivery because there would probably be a huge queue of curious people ordering the black and white burgers.
These burgers are the best burgers McDonald's has ever served in Hong Kong because in other countries they have other creations which also taste good such as the Cordon Bleu that was served for a limited time in the UK.
As well as the burgers, they also had other new items which were: Smoky hot wings, Bubble tea and Black and white sundae which I ordered as well.
At the restaurant, it was an interesting sight, there were lots of rice options on the menu!!!
And yes it really is TRUFFLE SAUCE!! but truffle is getting cheaper these days because you can get truffle essence.
The burgers reminded me of the trial McD's German chicken sausage burger which was also delicious because of the potato patty.
(Quoted from McDs) Discover the dark side of flavour with our new mashed potato base burger smothered in truffle sauce, topped by two 100% beef patties wrapped in deep black squid ink bun with bacon.
Since I am not fond of beef, the charred beef taste was too strong for me.
I just felt the bun could have been bigger and the squid ink taste could have been stronger.

Supersupergirl's Black & White Burger:
Personally I loved it because I was able to sample the best of both worlds with mushroom and truffle sauce!
Again the chicken one tastes the best.
Smoky hot wings:
For people who cannot eat spicy foods, they were extremely spicy just like the spicyness of the McCurry burger.
Black and white sundae:
The taste of this sundae was delicious because icecream with caramel can never fail and the pearls made it fun!
Both burgers are really worth trying, especially the White Burger and the Black and White sundae!!
The quality and taste of these burgers were certainly well above average for McDonalds standards.

Haven't had a Mcflurry for ages Apr 01, 2012
Since It's our last day of school, also a half day.
We decided to hang out for a while before heading back home.
The Mcflurry is as awesome as before! Quite refreshing and valuable I guess.
Although the quality and quantity is kept the same, the price has inflated alot!!
Sometimes, you need a fresh cup of icecream to keep you awake for the rest of the day :-)

McD's Kids meals are healthier than adults meals!! Jan 31, 2012
On the happy meal menu, there is a choice of fish burger, chicken nuggets, beef burger or hamburger along with small fries or sweet corn.
For drinks there are: Ribena, Qoo Soy milk, Minute maid orange juice, soft drinks and hot chocolate.
I was quite content with the burger choices because I usually order the fish burger or the hamburger anyway.
I prefer the kid’s meals because the portion of fries is smaller and there are more choices for drinks.
Although the kid’s meal are cheap, sometimes the extra value meals can be cheaper, especially when the filet-o-fish is on promotion for $20 and on the Happy meal set it cost $23.8.
Qoo Soy Milk:I really liked this; it was creamy with a vanilla tone to it similar to white rabbit sweets.
There is no soy bean taste in the drink.
The sweetness was just right.

Supplementary Information:I only got the Happy Meal to get the cute cat toy.
The cute cat has eyes that dilate when the button at the back is pressed.
See video of the dilating eyes:
I liked it so much that I got it repainted.
Price: $15 -$2x plus $7 for Happy meal toy, or $1X for 2nd additional toy.

Salt N Pepper Crab seasoning on shake shake fries Oct 09, 2011
So glad that McD's Shake Shake seasoning are back, by that I mean the condiment for the fries and not the four Seasons’.
Anyway, this year there are three flavours: Seaweed, Salt and pepper crab, Honey BBQ.
Usually each flavour is introduced a period after each other where you can choose any one of the flavours subject to it being launched and being available.
This year, each flavour is available for a certain time only and launched separately too.
The first flavour launched was the Seaweed, which seems the same as last year except the name is slightly different in Chinese.
The Chinese for it is called Jan Mei Ji Choi and last year it was just plain Ji Choi.
This year I only wanted to try the Salt and pepper crab seasoning, the other two I have tried and the same as last years.
The only advantage of having one flavour available at a time saves time for people who get to the ordering stage and cant decide which flavour to get and holding up the queue!!
McD’s could foresee their Shake Shake seasoning was a must have that they have been slightly crafty this year.
The seasoning used to be free with any extra value meal, but this year you have to order a Large sized extra value meal to get free seasoning or pay $2 for the seasoning.
I paid $2 for the seasoning because for the Large sized meal, there are more fries and the proportion of seasoning to the fries would be less. In the past it used to be one sachet of seasoning with a regular portion of fries.
The crab taste and salt and pepper were faint, but overall I liked it.
The taste of the fries was really similar to Burger King’s thai basil chicken wing.
Again I forgot to take pictures of the fries with the seasoning >< so in that sense the fries were so nice I couldn’t stop eating them.
Yummy factor: Very
MSG levels: just right

New hot chilli nuggets Jan 04, 2009
Saw the advert so had to give it a try, just to see how chilli hot and numbing they are.
From the advert, it has bits of chili in the nuggets, and on the actual nuggets the chicken patty inside is slightly pinkish.
With all Mcdonalds ads, I usually expect a visual difference between the actual product and the advertised product.
Anyway the chilli nugget tastes like grilled chicken burger that McDonalds also do, which is also has chilli powder in it too, but with a crunchy coating. The intensity of the chilli is acceptable.
