It’s hard to break the coffee habit, woke up this morning and NEEDED a cup. Good thing there is a Starbucks relatively close by the hotel. Popped in and studied the menu a bit, the food choices were a bit different than the choices in the US. I settled on a bacon and egg pastry and the back up coffee choice of Caramel macchiato. My normal first choice of white chocolate coffee was nowhere to be found on the menu. The bacon and egg pastry was delicious, it had an egg tart sort of texture. I was expecting just plain old bacon and scrambled egg inside of a flaky pastry, but this was something different. Kaela had wanted McDonalds since I told her the menu in Hong Kong is different.
It seems like every McDonalds in Hong Kong is located in a basement. Scanning the menu and there a a lot of different choices, macaroni and cheese sandwich, corn and cheese sandwich, what happened to egg McMuffin? I guess that must be a US thing since it was nowhere on the menu. I had a second cup of coffee at McDonalds. A flat white coffee. I don’t recall that being one of the options in the US, but I am sure I have seen flat white in Starbucks. Equally strange were the pictures adorning the walls of McDonalds. Is that a Big Mac in the picture?
