Sometimes you find can find yourself asking do other people in different countries eat the same kind of fast food as you do. Do they enjoy all 11 spices of KFC in Russia? Are they thinking Arby’s in South Africa? Do they have it their way in a BK in Japan?
Well McDonald’s was able to answer that question (somewhat) with their “World Taste Tour” campaign. This means that you could sample popular McDonalds menu items from different McDonalds restaurants all across the world.
There was one item in particular that piqued my interest: the Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich.
Interestingly enough, this sandwich hails from the great north of Canada. You would think something with mozzarella would align more with an Italian McDonalds than a Canadian one. Not to mention that this particular sandwich is popular with our neighbors from the North.
Curious to see why US McDonalds picked this sandwich over the rest of the Canadian McDonald’s menu, I decided to hit up my local McDonalds and order one. You had the option of having the chicken either crispy or grilled. Like any sane person, I chose the latter because grill always tastes better than deep-fried.
Once I got it, I popped open the container, picked up my Tomato Mozzarella sandwich, and took a big bite.
I won’t lie to you. That was a mighty tasty sandwich.
The chicken meat itself was smooth and juicy, almost mouth-watering inducing upon contact with my tongue. The mozzarella was melted the way I liked all over the chicken and tomato, adding more to the flavor.
The sauce they used had a nice little combo of tanginess and sweetness to it. More likely than not, it was mayo-based but I didn’t taste really any sort of regular mayo flavor.
However I had just a couple of minor gripes with the Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich.
First minor gripe was with the onions. Like any McDonalds sandwich or burger, they put diced onions all over the sandwich. There was more onion than sauce, which was a downer.
Second minor gripe was that there was no Canadian bacon on the sandwich. How could something from Canada not have any Canadian bacon on it?
Nevertheless, it was a pretty good sandwich overall. Decent price as well compared to some of the other sandwich/burger items on the menu. Got my bang for my buck.
Ronald, you magnificent clown bastard, you did it again. Hats off to you.
