McDonald’s New Burgers: We Tried The Original & Mushroom Angus Beef Burgers & Did a Comparison


Last Updated on 2020-02-20 , 12:16 pm

McDonald’s has been coming up with various seasonal burgers since a very long time ago and this time they’re back with new burgers.

But there’s a difference this time. McDonald’s new burgers are here to stay this time.

While we already have a burger with 100% Angus Beef, you know, that atas looking Classic Angus Cheeseburger, Mcdonald’s said they were releasing a similar one.

All was revealed in due time

Intrigued by the announcement, I logged on to the McDelivery site, and poof, there they are: McDonald’s new burgers the uninvited assholes that swiped my beloved burger’s place (aka the Quarter Pounder with Cheese).


Left in a weird mix of denial, curiosity, and rage, I sneaked into my boss’ office, swiped his credit card and ordered myself one of two burgers: the Original Angus, and the Angus Mushroom Supreme.

I also got myself a serving of the all-new Cheesy Loaded Fries, because why not.


Seething and practically foaming at the mouth, I waited for the delivery guy to arrive.

And he did, 40 whole minutes later. When he rang the bell, I opened the door, snatched the food from him and slammed the door in his face.

It’s time to see whether the new burgers warranted the dismissal of the great ol’ QUARTER POUNDER WITH CHEESE.

The taste test

I roped in my colleague, Yiin Juinn (incidentally, he’s responsible for the fries) to do a quick taste test, and this is what we got.

Note: the burgers were rated in regards to their taste and presentation.

The Original Angus (IC: Zhi Hao)

With such a fine and dandy name, I was expecting it to have a similar taste and vibe.


What transpired, however, was more of a recurring taste and vibe.

Isn’t this but a more atas version of the Quarter Pounder with Cheese? What’s all that stuff about 100% Angus and whatnot?

A way to jack up the price?

Rating: 4.5/10



Angus Mushroom Supreme (IC: Yiin Jiunn)

According to my colleague YJ, it tasted like a regular quarter pounder with cheese. And that’s putting it nicely. He actually compared it to a regular cheeseburger.

Yo, I didn’t pay $7.85 online for a $2.80 cheeseburger. 


Additionally, he also added that there was too much mayo, which all but overpowered the burger’s taste.

But there was a light at the end of the tunnel. The mushrooms, according to him, were pretty darn juicy.

Rating: 6/10

Would he try it again?

“At that price, I would really expect more,” he laughed. “C’mon lah; I rather get a McDouble.”


So there you have it, folks, McDonald’s new burgers

Our call?

Not worth it.

Yet sadly, I have this say this:

As much as it pains me to say it, this is the closest thing to the good ol’ Quarter Pounder with Cheese.

So yeah, get it if you don’t mind the very unintentionally jacked up price.

Alternatively, you can always get the McDouble or a Cheeseburger.

The feeling won’t be as shiok, but at least you’ll be able to get a couple of them.

The price will still be around the same as an Angus burger anyway.
