Hell, last December I even wrote about doctoring up eleven McDoubles.) So a few weeks ago, when I read that McDonald's would be introducing a Triple Cheeseburger, I figured it might be even better than the McDouble.
But I didn't rush out to try it. McDonald's - well, all fast food - was a much bigger part of my life back in California. With all the delis, pizza joints and Chinese take-outs close to me in Brooklyn (I would walk by at least a dozen of them combined before I got to the nearest fast food joint, other than Five Guys), fast food doesn't really figure into the equation.
The other day I was walking by and, for the first time, did not see a line of people inside McDonald's. (Often the line literally goes out the door.) So I decided to pop in and try the Triple Cheeseburger. It was $2 plus tax.
One of which I'll be making tonight...
