McDonald's My Burger has started, seeing a new burger, created by we ordinary folk, released every week for the next five weeks. There are certainly a few very interesting ones coming up that I definitely can't wait to try, but the first burger to come out is something of a modest affair. This is the Big Uno, a concoction of beef, bacon, cheese, onion, lettuce, ketchup and mayo. It sounded a little bland to me, but if I was going to delve into the entire menu I had to start with this.
To be honest, I was pretty surprised. This burger is nothing special, sure, but it's actually pretty tasty. The focus is mainly on the meat, and it's definitely packed full of flavour. The ketchup/mayo combination is one that I haven't really dabbled in before, but it works. The Big Uno is a case of simple but effective, a crisp, fresh burger that doesn't rely on heaps of mustard and gherkins to bring out the flavour. It's definitely not the best McDonald's burger I've had, but this is a meaty, saucy treat that's a good start to what looks to be a promising menu. I'm hoping the rest are as good as they look.
My rating: 4/5
