love being different
A couple of weeks ago I tried the McSpicy and I thought to myself that it wasn’t as good as the Zinger. Since that time, I have met some opposition; people claiming that the McSpicy is the better sandwich. So I decided not base my judgement on memory and to actually put it to the test by making the sandwiches go head to head. Which basically means I ordered both today and compared them, cleansing my palette with a good ol’ fashioned Coca Cola in between bites.
And here’s what we have…
McSpicy: more lettuce, smaller bun (which gave it a better bun-to-chicken ratio), spicier (by far!), dry chicken. (Right side of the photo)
Zinger: softer bun, crispier chicken (apart from being jucier), and overall better flavour. (Left side of the photo)
If you’re looking for spice, then you should definitely go for the McSpicy. But if you’re looking for an overall better sandwich, then the Zinger is the chicken sandwich for you.
Now if only BOTH sandwiches could find a way to spread their mayo evenly. Seriously, in both cases, all the mayo was just on one side. Use a squeeze bottle, guys.
