From Pulp Fiction (1994), John Travolta as Vincent and Samuel L. Jackson as Jules.
Vincent: And you know what they call a… a… a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
Jules: They don’t call it a Quarter Pounder with cheese?
Vincent: No man, they got the metric system. They wouldn’t know what the [CENSORED] a Quarter Pounder is.
Jules: Then what do they call it?
Vincent: They call it a Royale with cheese.
Jules: A Royale with cheese. What do they call a Big Mac?
Vincent: Well, a Big Mac’s a Big Mac, but they call it le Big-Mac.
Jules: Le Big-Mac. Ha ha ha ha. What do they call a Whopper?
Vincent: I dunno, I didn’t go into Burger King.
In the Philippines, McDonalds (an American fast food chain) serves rice. Catering to the Filipino taste were the staple is rice.
Here are a few items I tried, each roughly 2-3 US dollars.
Longganisa with rice, a McDonalds variant of the breakfast “Longanisalog” consisting of rice, pork sausage(Longganisa), egg (itlog) and white rice. “Longanisalog” is fried garlic rice with a sunny side egg on top and pork sausage(s) on the side. The McDonalds Longganisa with rice is an ok quick breakfast or snack meal.
This is the 2 piece chicken with rice, it’s accompanied with gravy. The gravy is a better version of the Colonel Sander’s Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe it’s not salty and there is a savory meatiness to it. The gravy made in the Philippines is not overpowered by salt or flour, it has a mild liver taste that goes well with the chicken.
Anyway, “I wonder what they call a Big Mac in India ?” – Good Eats !!!
