Just a day ago, you might have seen this beauty of an image here:

And if you’re anything like me, that made you go

Oh, you touch my tralala. Mm, my ding ding dong.

That, coupled with the fact that today is Friday, meant that it’s time to Rock N Roll.

Why, why you gotta do me like that?

Anyway, you know what that means: It’s time for us to try the wedges and Angus Supreme.

Angus Mushroom Supreme is priced at $6.95 ala carte or you could make it an Extra Value Meal that comes with fries and a drink for $8.95.

Potato wedges are ala carte for $4.00 or enjoy the Angus Mushroom Supreme Special, which includes Potato Wedges (M) and a cup of Coke (S) from $9.75.

Angus Mushroom Supreme

The unfortunate truth of any fast-food burger is that it doesn’t look as good as the ad looks.

But don’t fret. We have the cross-section to examine what the burger really contains. As advertised, the burger comes with a 100% Angus beef patty, grilled white button mushrooms, caramelised onions, and herb aioli.

If you don’t know what aioli is, it’s basically garlic mayonnaise.

While the top bun looks a bit disproportionate to the rest of the burger, the core ingredients seem to strike a good balance here. It might seem like there’s a lot of aioli, but on tasting, it’s quite the opposite.

Because we’re stingy, we also checked the number of mushrooms. Although this is kind of to be expected from a fast-food restaurant, this is still kind of disappointing.

Especially when Burger King’s Avocado Whooper is so beautiful looking:

Without going into comparisons with BK, the burger is all-around solid. You can taste everything in a bite, from the salty cheese to the allium infused herby aioli.

But it’s really kind of disappointing for the price. The patty is a tad dry, which meant that more aioili is required to compensate with fat, and while the mushrooms are juicy, the upper bun is too thick. Without a juicy patty, dry buns just make burgers a lot worse than it should.

In the end, this is still fast food, and even with a Signature Collection tag, an ad that touched my tralala and an atas box, it’s eh.

Potato Wedges

If fast-food fries can spark a war, then it makes sense that wedges can do the same if the other fast-food chain decides to join in on having this menu item.

Unfortunately, other fast-food chains don’t have wedges, so we only have the wedges from McDonald’s.

Here’s what the inside of the wedges looks like.

Everything about the wedges is pretty standard. It seems like McDonald’s didn’t try to differentiate themselves here. It’s fluffy on the inside, crisp on the outside (ours slightly soggy cause of delivery), and salted just right.

Wedges are wedges, and you can’t say no to wedges.

While at $4 ala carte, the portion can be quite disappointing, as part of a meal upgrade, the price is quite reasonable.
