_Thinking about where to go for lunch has been a daily ordeal for me and and my office mates. Being in the central district also gives us few choices to choose from when thinking about where to eat so we often stick with the usual. But when we see a poster announcing the coming of a new variety of McDonald's Burger, we definitely made sure to try how Big and Tasty it is.

I've only got to try McDonald's regular burger, cheeseburger and double cheeseburger but my office buddy is really a burger fan. I once teased her about how crazy it is to eat a quarter pounder but she just laughed and told me to try it too. Nah ah, I'm not really a burger fan, but this Big and Tasty thing captured my fancy.

The Big and Tasty costs P145 for a burger, fries and drinks. A little expensive right, but after giving it much thought, I can surely say it's worth it. The burger patty is big, and juicy unlike their other burgers. I've later learned the patty used here is the same kind used in quarter pounder. The burger is also stuffed with lots of lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. I first thought that I may not get easily get fed up of the veggies but I actually enjoyed it. The burger is so tasty you'll gonna finish it to the last bite and end up definitely full and satisfied.

This Big and Tasty burger is made even yummier with a unique Smokey sauce that has certain sweetness and spiciness in it. The cheese also made the burger more pleasing to my taste and made me munch it with so much gusto.

If you haven't tried this McDonald's Burger yet, I really hope you'll get past through staring at the menu and actually order it because, man! This is really good! How about you? What's your Big and Tasty Moment?

For a unique-tasting chicken, KFC’s the best.  Whether it's original or hot and spicy, nothing beats Colonel Sander’s secret fried chicken recipe. Its distinct flavor and creamy gravy made KFC Chicken a legend of its own. So it’s not that surprising that KFC combined their famous fried chicken to almost all of their meals - from burgers and snack boxes to their pasta bowls. The newest addition to this is the KFC Cheesy Bacon Pasta Bowl.

I have read hundreds of praises about this new Pasta Bowl. I have been an avid fan of the Creamy Tomato Pasta Bowl, so there’s no way I shouldn’t try it. I’ve seen it several times in commercials, advertisements and it looks appetizing. And comments like, ‘It’s so yummy,’ ‘I’ll come back to KFC for this,’ and the like made me eager to try this right away. 

My Judgment

Basically, this new pasta bowl is covered with cheese sauce and topped with chopped bacon and KFC’s original recipe chicken fillet slices. When I received this highly-appreciated pasta bowl, I felt excited at first, then became disappointed. I was excited because the meal looks delectable and it smells so delicious. However, I found it too small a serving for a Php 95-worth of meal. When I had my first taste of this cheesy bacon pasta bowl, I found it okay-tasting. The combination of cheese sauce, bacon and chicken, I believe, was okay and there’s nothing special. Sadly, I only finished three quarters of my meal. The cheese sauce and the chicken tasted good but the bacon tasted salty.

Comparison With Other Pasta Bowls

I still prefer KFC’s Creamy Tomato over the other Pasta Bowls including this new innovation. Nothing beats the heavenly feeling you’ll get with this good smelling pasta loaded with parmesan cheese, tomato sauce and real tomato slices.The Cheesy Bacon Pasta Bowl, on the other hand, is too small and tasted salty after a few bites. The flavors of the Creamy Tomato pasta bowl complement each other unlike the new pasta bowl which I think, is overly flavored.

I guess I’ll stick with the Creamy Tomato Pasta Bowl and other KFC favorites. It’s a lot more satisfying and worth the price it is sold for. However, if you want to know what others are bragging about, try the new pasta bowl and give your own verdict.
