    McDonalds great tastes of teh world - Week 1 & 2: The South African Stack
    Two 100% British & Irish beef patties, Smoky BBQ sauce, Beechwood smoked bacon, Pepper Jack cheese, Hot & Spicy Mayo, lettuce and a slice of tomato, in a glazed paprika topped bun

    Bacon smoked in wood from a European tree
    American Pepper Jack cheese
    British and Irish Beef

    @Nighthawk - can you find anything South African in there ?

    I'm actually amazed they can say that is a South African taste.

    Throw on some Monkeygland sauce (MYUMMY) , and you might have a chance, but this is just so wrong.

    First thing I am doing @RogerH69 is finding a nice Steers to go to, and a milkylane afterwards if they still exist but yeah, I agree - nothing SA about that at all - how about a nice plate of freshly braaied boerewors instead?

    Maybe you South Africans can get McDonald's to make something featuring biltong? Then it would definitely be seen as something South African! And practically nobody else in the world would ever want to eat one...

    Cheese burger with grated biltong on top. Now we're talking !!

    At least you could call it South African then.

    I still don't get the point of calling something South African when it has NOTHING South African on it. Especially when the rest of the world tries REAL South African food and complains because it taste nothing like the "South African" Burger they got from McDonald's.

    @Nighthawk - Steers is still open, not sure about Milky Lane. Milky Lane is the reason the only milkshake I ever have is bubblegum flavoured :Smile:

    We have an SA shop not too far from ourselves. I was gutted when Simba stopped making Chinese Chutney Chips. My favourite of all time.

    Milkylane was fantastic, bubblegum flavour was my favourite too as well as their sundaes.
    Milky Lane South Africa

    :clap: - its still open

    McDonalds have the worst specials in the world. No imagination goes into any of them!

    The Thai one is just a chicken burger with sweet chilli sauce! really annoys me that in this day and age when people eat so many more interesting foods they still think this is ok.

    Their usual specials consist of:
    Expensive sounding, generic dry bun
    BBQ sauce/special sauce or both
    expensive sounding wilted lettuce

    Just wish they would be genuinely creative...
