Daily Quickie: McDonald's Big N' Tasty

Thursday, July 05, 2012
Daily Quickie is a short tag on the title which I use for blog entries about food I'm snacking at home, work or anywhere.

I might be late in joining the bandwagon, but for the past two weeks, I've ordered McDonald's Big N' Tasty thrice. The first time from a drive thru, and the second and third for home delivery. I know I'm endangering my life and more importantly, my weight, but how can I not crave for a burger as tasty as this?
McDonalds Big N Tasty

I must admit that I was skeptical at first. I didn't understand why people are making such a fuss about this burger. However, after trying it for myself, I proved that it's not Magnum part two. Even without marketing tactics, I'd still buy the Big N' Tasty for the taste.

The Big N' Tasty may not be too big for me, but it sure is very tasty. Encased between round fluffy buns is a seasoned single layer of 100% pure beef patty that goes perfectly with shreds of lettuce, slices of onions, tomatoes and pickles, a layer of creamy cheese, and a special smokey sauce -- the treat that makes this burger super awesome!

McDo Big N Tasty

Yes, the buns aren't special, the beef patty isn't extraordinary, and the vegetables are your average TLC plus onion slices. However, all these mediocrity can be upped by the tasty special dressing. Don't get me wrong, the Big N' Tasty isn't the tastiest most special burger I've had in my entire life. But for P165 a piece with medium-sized fries and a drink, I'd say it's a good fill not only for the tummy but also for the palate.

How about you, have you tried the Big N' Tasty from McDonald's? Do you find it yummy or just an over-hyped fast food burger?

  2. And this makes me crave...LoLs...All I can say is that this "Big N Tasty burger from McDo is just an ordinary size here in the Mideast especially here in KSA. Burgers here in McDo are super big and can be feasted by two people already. On a side note, I would love to try that too..just for curiosity sake since it's making a buzz there. Hopefully, it's still avail when I get back home.

    1. Ahh.. The Big N' Tasty's sauce isn't really mayo-based naman.. But I'm sure it has a squeeze of mayo there.. :D Give it a try some time though.

  7. This is pure temptation! Hahaha! I'm trying to cut back on my fastfood binges. Big and tasty is really good to satisfy your hunger. I usually share this with my kid.

  8. I tried this burger once and it's good, but I've tried better-tasting burgers at nearly the same price...So I'm not that impressed, which is a good thing! Otherwise, I'd be craving for it and that would be sooo bad.

  10. Everythingi n McDonald's is mediocre but it's my ultimate comfort food. Hahaha Probably coz they make it so convenient for me to have something from them. I love that they deliver 24/7 and that there's no minimum charge :D

  11. It tastes like a Whopper to me, which is good since we don't have BK here in San Pablo! Haha! :)

  12. i was at mcdonalds this afternoon! but ive never tried this one haha. i think i would love this one. and of course, with fries too! that's my ultimate fave!

  13. I haven't given it a taste yet because I'm on a diet. Haha! But just like the magnum, everyone pretty hyped up on promoting this in every social media platform... :P

  14. I like this burger. The taste is a little similar to burger king's whopper.

  15. It's basically a quarter pounder dressed up as a Big Mac -- same Big Mac sauce and same Quarter Pounder patty... :)

    1. I don't think it has the same Big Mac sauce. I often have Big Mac and the sauce is more plain, while the Big N' Tasty has a more well-seasoned sauce.. :) But I'll grab both burgers soon to check.. ;)

  25. The patty looks big and very appetizing! I'm not a fan of fast foods but if I'm confronted with photos such as yours, I really consider buying fast food that look so yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haven't even joined the bandwagon yet. I should try this out. I always think McDo burgers are a tad dry. Never really liked them. I hope this one is juicier. And let's see about that dressing....

    ReplyDelete
  27. i haven't tried this. minsan kasi ang burgers ng mcdonalds medyo dry. :( but i kinda prefer their mayonnaise over jollibee's.

    1. True! I find McDo's patties dry too. And although the Big N' Tasty is really flavorful, the patty's quite dry pa rin.

  32. Wow, I miss McDonald's Pinas. I don't know, what we have here is a bit different when it comes to satisfaction. But to have an another brand, a young brand actually originated in New York that tastes just so yummylicious. Perhaps you've heard Shake Shack? This was the burger featured in the movie "Something Borrowed" that my wife loved watching. Please see this also... http://etc.soundsfunny.ws/index.php/2012/04/food-shake-shack-on-a-friday-in-dubai/

  33. I miss fastfood, and I always crave for fastfood every lunch break, because I always bring home cooked meals.

    I should try this next time.. but Im afraid of calories! :D

    ReplyDelete

  41. I love McDo's Cheeseburger. It's been my fave for the longest time. When I tasted the Big N' Tasty, I love McDo even more. I also wrote a blog post about it to show how much i love it - http://ang-sarap.blogspot.com/2012/07/mcdonalds-big-n-tasty.html hehe! :D
