Fatboy's Food Equivalent????

While in Macau, I chanced upon this burger joint at the fast food dining area of the Venetian Shopping Centre. Being a Running FatBoy, I want to find out whether this Fatburger is enough to quench this Fatboy's hunger...

Potential seems good as this is a fast food chain that has branches all over the world. I got the regular FatBurger (MOP 40.00 or PHP 240.00) while my mom got the Veggie Burger (MOP 50 or PHP 300.00).



Final Verdict: At Php 240.00 and with a small burger patty, it was quite expensive. Would rather go for Brothers Burger or even HotShots Burger compared to this one as didn't feel as full as I would have expected from a restaurant with this name.
Or if you are in Macau and crave for some fastfood serviced burgers, just go to McDonalds for some comfort food.
Aside from the regular menu, they also have some local specialized stuffs there, which aren't available in other McDonalds (like the McSpaghetti and Fried Chicken with rice that the Philippines only seem to have).
As such, I got the Shogun Burger with Egg Value Meal. Value Meal meaning a combination meal that comes with French Fries and Drink at cheaper prices but we all know that... what we don't know is what a Shogun Burger with Egg is all about?
Well, based on McDonalds' description, the eggs come from grade A quality eggs from the USA, which were inspected, washed and coated with USDA mineral oil for protection. The burger itself comes with fresh lettuce, teriyaki pork patty and uses a new kind of lemon mayo sauce from Japan.
To top it off, I got a Green Bean Sundae for dessert. Entire thing still comes up lesser than the Php 240 price for a (not so) FatBurger...



Yummy local Macau McDonalds meal which made this Running Fatboy a happy and full Running Fatboy...

the green syrup for the sundae does not look too appetizing. =( reminds me of the lumot in bora.

haha! still quite tasty. Think they also have red beans sundae but that may make you think of something nasty too....
