"Oldtasty's" trip to the Chinese Pizza Hut Salad Bar

You might have seen some "salad bar hacking" in an earlier article, but back in 2004, "Oldtasty" thought he'd give salad bar construction a crack. This is his story...

These images made the rounds of the office in February of 2004 when I was working in Beijing, and were the source of much amusement among my Chinese coworkers. When one's only allowed one trip to the Pizza Hut salad bar, creative salad architecture ensues.

McDonalds to launch supersized World Cup Burger

Looks like McDonalds is making a bigger Big Mac for the World Cup! No pics yet, but will be sure to post as soon as possible...(photo here is not of actual World Cup Burger). If you're in the UK and can send me a pic, please let me know in the forums!

From: http://www.newlaunches.com/...

Fast food major McDonalds is hoping to cash in on the Football fever as it prepares to launch the World cup burger. The special burger will be available for six weeks and will be around 40 % larger than it's biggest burger the Big Mac. So after relishing it you will be left with 667 additional calories which is equivalent of 9 fun sized Snickers bars. The move has prompted outrage from health campaigners with Liberal Democrat MP Steve Webb orgainising a petition against the burger.

UK gets bigger Big Mac

Originally from Slashfood, this article talke about how the UK is about to get a bigger Big Mac. The picture doesn't look too much like a Big Mac tho. Any of our UK readers care to comment? Any Maccas workers had one to try before they're released?

From: http://www.megastar.co.uk/world/news/2006/04/24/sMEG01MTE0NTg2NzAzNTE.html

MegaStar says: ‘Food for thought? Nah, just bigger portions and bigger thighs.’ Despite healthy eating being rammed down our throats at every turn, McDonald’s have defied their critics and plan to launch the Bigger Big Mac!

Do you want fat with fat?

They've only just figured this out? :D

From: http://heraldsun.news.com.au/...

McDONALD'S is supersizing fatty burgers on demand – and its registers are programmed to take the order.

While the fast-food giant strongly advertises its "healthy" alternatives, it is feeding customers burgers that are double, triple and even quadruple their displayed menu size.

Hardee's Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger - Meat as a condiment?

Hardee's has released another thickburger, this time they're using Philly Cheesesteak as a condiment! Yes, condiment. Meat as a condiment... mmmm... would you like a Meatshake to go with that? ;)

From: http://sev.prnewswire.com/restaurants/20060418/CGTU07018042006-1.html

Using meat, such as bacon, as a burger topping is not a new idea, but Hardee's has taken the concept to its extreme today with the launch of the new Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger(TM). It's meat-on-meat as Hardee's new burger features a 1/3-lb. Angus beef Thickburger patty piled high with thinly sliced steak, two kinds of cheese and green peppers and onions. The result is a truly delicious and authentic tribute to the classic Philly Cheesesteak -- as only Hardee's can make it.
