I'm always entranced by McDonald's foreign options. I've had Insalate Caprese in Rome and Dulce de Leche soft serve in Buenos Aires, but while in grad school in the U.K., the 2-quid, 500-calorie (including fries and a diet soda) Fish Finger Happy Meal became my library lunch of choice. Somehow, it just feels more wholesome to me than the average McDonald's dinner--maybe because the fish is filleted Hoki sourced from sustainable New Zealand fisheries, and if I'm feeling particularly virtuous, I can substitute my fries and coke for apple slices and water. And after all, they do say fish is brain food--plus, I get a free toy.
In fact, I might even go so far as to say that the Fish Finger Happy Meal is my preferred version of fish and chips. Why, oh why, can't I get it here!?
Would you order a happy meal with fish sticks?
