Hi everyone, what’s up? I hope you’re doing well. I’m Yoann, and you’re on my channel: My life in the USA So we’re here today – Hi Andrea
– Hi Yoann We’re here today for a new video A few days ago I received in my mailbox a hat from the company “Sobuzzee” I got that hat for Mcdonald’s weekly special New York Street food so I thought: WE HAVE TO TRY IT ! So what are we trying today Andrea? We’re trying the grilled cheese and bacon Let’s do it, Let’s taste it ! Just like we did in the Picard video if you haven’t watched the video where we try Picard’s American food You can go and watch it (link the in the description below) We’re going to rate the visual and the taste is it as good as a real American grilled cheese – I’m starving
– Me too Let’s try the …
– Grilled cheese and bacon – What do you think of this grilled cheese? – What do you think of the way it looks ? – visually, it’s a grilled cheese, with the white bread To me, it’s more a burger it’s not really a grilled cheese Because you see, there are …2…. I don’t know the word …” patties” 2 patties the taste is good It doesn’t taste like grilled cheese I think it’s kind of dry – What’s a real grilled cheese according to you ? – A real American grilled cheese has a lot of cheese And then you can add stuff, like avocados ham it’s ok, but not too much it’s mainly cheese ! and this is not ! is it unusual to find an hamburger in a grilled cheese in the USA? there are some food trucks that do it but … it’s too much meat to me ! what about the flavor ? I’m not surprised, I’m not fan it’s not amazing but it’s good What grade would you give to this grilled cheese? look: I’d give: 8 visually it’s clean I’d say 9 and this time it was well done, because sometimes at Mcdonald’s you get your order and you have your hamburger outside the bun it’s was nice and clean let’s give 8.5 for the taste? I give 4 I didn’t like it it’s dry, there isn’t too much flavor not enough cheese ! I’d have given 8 I like the taste of it but I agree that compared to American grilled cheese grilled cheese in the States, it’s “goowy” the cheese melts our second item is the New York Mc Wrap Mcdonald’s already has Wraps I don’t know if I would say that a wrap can be considered street food It is because you can walk around while eating and it’s easy to make it doesn’t give me the image of street food. Let’s try their New York McWrap it looks like their normal wraps It’s chicken, cheddar, fried onions – Are they other options?
– Yes, like goat cheese, etc. But this one is the New York. The edited edition it’s good there is enough sauce The ratio sauce, meat and salad is good I don’t find it very different from their other wraps I think the sauce is different which tastes good and the fried onions it’s the main thing It looks nice, It’s good But is it a New York Street food thing ? I wouldn’t say so it’s a classic wrap visually: 8 it wasn’t perfect 8.5 is good for the taste? I’d say 8 it tastes good ! Is it authentic? no it isn’t to me ! It’s a classic wrap For the authenticity : 4 It’s good not amazing They didn’t change too much from what they already do exactly ! When I saw “New York wrap” I thought “Oh it’s going to be different” but it isn’t Now, let’s try the last thing… If you have watched the Picard video, you know that Andrea LOVES hot dogs ! so we’re going to try the big hot dog from Mcdonald’s the 9.4 inch long ! HUGE! Are we going to talk about that? so there is the problem ! let’s show it the problem here is that the hot dog is outside of the bread there is the bread and the sausage next to it it’s like at Ikea “make it yourself” First of all, it’s not a usual hot dog bun because the bun usually is open on one side but isn’t on the other sie and that’s why the sausage is out of the bun what do you think of the flavor ? it’s ok, a little bit dry there isn’t enough sauce there is a lot of bread A LOT OF IT it’s very difficult to eat it it’s not street food for that reason you cannot walk and eat at the same time what’s cool, for instance, when I was in New York, I bought a hot dog in central park and you have the bun opened only on one side with the hot dog and you can walk around while eating it’s very easy to eat I think here it’s also because of the size it’s also because it’s fun ! it’s huge but it’s open on both sides so it falls from everywhere there are fried onions mustard and ketchup however, the mustard tastes like the mustard…
– Yes it’s the American mustard very yellow it’s not our mustard in France, the spicy one it’s the mustard used in hot dogs it’s authentic there are fried onions there is some cheese, but not a lot so voilà for the hot dog visually, I’d say 3 – it wasn’t complete when we opened it
– deception you think ooooh and then your like ugh…. even after building it back together it’s still blend you only see the bread I’d say maybe.. a piece of advice… be more simple, less bread and more sauce and choose a bread that is not open on one side an actual hot dog bun I had a big hot dog last time and it had actually a real bun and therefore you don’t have issues with the sausage so yes, kind of disappointed the taste wasn’t too bad a little bit dry the authenticity of the mustard it gave it points but for the authenticity, the hot dog from Picard the hot dog from there WAS SO GOOD at Picard it was the right amount of bread, sauce, hot dog and this one isn’t exactly so what is the grade? you said 4 for the look 7 for the taste it wasn’t horrible and the authenticity … 5 not good …. So we’ve tried the 3 items from the Mcdonald’s limited edition “New York street food” I’d say, if I may, that Picard was successful in their trial of doing American food even if not everything was perfect it was way more authentic for Mcdonald’s it wasn’t a successful attempt it’s kind of sad, because Mcdonald’s is an American fast food I think Mcdonald’s tried to find a way to make it French And by doing so, they lost a lot of point, a lot of taste for the look and the authenticity I think you’re right our advice would be if you want to be authentic, don’t be scared to surprise try something new, maybe something French people have never tried before and that would be the opportunity to do so don’t make it French because it’s not authentic anymore Anyway, it was super cool ! it was still nice to taste them and we always love to try new things ! and we’re looking forward to trying the next fast food or store that we’ll have an American theme and we’ll try it for you ! I hope you enjoyed the video, if you did, give it a big thumbs up ! share the video with your friends, family and everyone as always
