Because the “Create Your Taste” service isn’t available at McDonald’s Japan (yet).

Before I began writing for RocketNews24, I was a fan of the site, largely because I was a huge fan of the absurd things Mr. Sato does. Things like ordering a Whopper with 1,050 strips of bacon.

So when I received the Royal Rocket Decree (i.e. editor’s orders) to make the biggest burger possible at McDonald’s Singapore, I thought, “This is my chance to pull off a Mr. Sato!”.

Long fangirl story short, we maxed out the options at the “Create Your Taste” kiosk and created the biggest burger that… wasn’t really a burger?!

Navigating through the options at the kiosk took a couple of minutes since there was quite a variety of toppings and sauces to scroll through. Though, it’s a pity that the only choice of patty available was the Angus beef patty.

The payment process was quick too, in true fast food fashion. All we had to do was to take the ticket generated at the kiosk to the cashier counter and hand over the cash. Payment by NETS is also available directly at the kiosk.

Waiting for our food to be served, however, took longer than we had expected. Our Angry Birds meal had arrived rather promptly, but our mega burger was nowhere to be seen. Hungry and pressed for time, we couldn’t resist the urge to peer into the kitchen to see if they were indeed working on building our burger.

▼ After 20 minutes…


▼ Another 10 minutes later… hey, why is it getting smaller?


After approximately 40 minutes, our burger finally made it to our table! But the service staff told us to hold on for “the rest” of our order. What…?

▼ Wait… where’s the cheese?


A minute later, the McDonald’s lady came back to us with what appeared to be “the rest” of the things that should’ve been in the burger. That’s what a burger is supposed to be like, isn’t it? The full works sandwiched between burger buns. With the toppings served separately, it looked and felt as if we were having a western Popiah party instead.

▼ Well, the lady was kind enough to bring us cutlery!




Although the way the burger was served was beyond our expectations, the taste of it, however, was rather predictable. The Angus beef patty was definitely bigger, thicker and that tiny bit juicier than the fast food giant’s regular beef patty, but it tasted like a McDonald’s patty after all. The variety of cheeses were quite the game changer though!

Our biggest gripe about the way the burger was served, was that all eight varieties of sauces were squished together on one bun (under the tomato, tortilla strips and lettuce). It was an explosion of flavours and we couldn’t really make out which flavour came from which sauce.

If only they could serve the sauces separately like they did with the toppings! Or at least spread them out between the eggs and patties. Not many of us have a hypersensitive tongue like Erina Nakiri from Shokugeki no Soma.

In case you were wondering how much the biggest and priciest burger at McDonald’s Singapore costs, our McRocket (sounds nicer than “giant burger”, yeah?), complete with large fries and Coke, set us back by SG$55.95 (US$41.40).
