Why are the Americans doing this????
I want to say right at the beginning that this is not a "bash America" post. I am just trying to understand.
My friend asked me to join her for lunch at the Burger King - it is fairly new in Prague and so I told myself Ok, lets give it a try! I mean - it is a famous American chain, people eat this stuff in America - so I was curious.
The first dilemma came right at the beginning - the burger is huge!! And no cuttlery in sight ..I mean - how do you eat it??? Do the Americans have bigger mouth then we do? When I took the first bite - the onion made her way to my lap - leaving a nice mark saying: serves you right! When I took the second bite, the ketchup dribbled down my wrist....As far as the taste - I don´t know....could be worse ...I guess...
So my question stands: it is huge, it is not very tasty, it is a self service so there is not even the "I want to feel spoiled " moment - so why, why do the Americans do it?
And as far as cost - for the price of a burger I could get a nice meal in a Czech restaurant (with cutlery and real cups:) So this is really a mystery for me....
It was fairly empty around lunch hour , but I am sure it will find their customers...American tourists probably:))
And just for the record: my friend loved it!
