Finally decided I would go to the Mcdonald's for a big mac. The big mac was very similar to back home but a little less greasy. The Fries on the other hand were quite different, they were skinnier, shorter, and tasted different, not bad but different. The ketchup was thicker and sweeter. I did want a pop and figured I did not want to waste it so did order one. This move actually cost me 7 extra yuan. The combo was 18 yuan and to order it the way I did cost 25 yuan. Mcdonald's over here is very clean and a lot more upscale. The menu has a lot of the traditional items but is tailored to the Chinese. Mcdonald's as a company has been very successful over here because they know what their customers value. Mcdonald's viewed as a great spot to work this is very different than in the United States were we consider it a mac job ( low quality job). There is a lot of room to move up in the company and do it quickly. It was a very good experience to view a fast food restaurant that originated in the United States.
