McDonalds - Dutch Style
I went to McDonald's this morning. We were running errands; I hadn't had breakfast yet; I was jonesing for a McGriddle... whatever. I went to McDonald's, ok? And McDonald's are the same everywhere, right? Wrong.
First of all, this place had only one front door. The side I was on wasn't it. So I just guessed and went to my left. Wrong choice. Three sides later, I got in. Perhaps they were testing me. Do you really want to come here?
At the counter I looked for their breakfast menu. I don't know why - I always get the same thing. But I couldn't find it... which worried me.
"Do you have a breakfast menu?"
"Yes, we do. Would you like it?"
"That'll be 4.75 euros."
It took me a while to figure it out, but apparently McDonald's in the Netherlands only has one item (a meal, or "menu" in Dutch) on their breakfast line-up. ONE ITEM!
The good part is that the one meal option they have includes a bacon, egg & cheese McMuffin AND a croissant (with jam & butter) AND a coffee AND an orange juice. That's like TWO meals in the States! And for 4.75 in local silver. That's literally pocket-change here. (The Euro coinage goes up to two-euros.)
Forgive me for saying this in a post about McDonalds in the Netherlands, but...
I love this country. *sniff*
