Comment on A Comparison of Fast Food Fried Fish Sandwiches by jrw.

What a disappointment this post was. I was hoping for some useful information here. I don’t eat red meat at all and have a rather extensive history of sampling non-meat options when forced to eat fast food. I have tried the McDonald’s product on 3 occasions and it never gets any better. I tried for the 3rd and final time last year and it was inedible and ridiculously over-priced. The square patties are dry and miniscule and the bun has all the flavor of styrofoam.

I have found the Burger King option to be a bargain compared to McDonald’s and at least hints at tasting like fish. (I grew up on the east coast and visit often enough to remember the taste of fresh fish.) Wendy’s, Arby’s etc., have been less objectionable than McDonald’s but not always available. Although it’s a little pricey for fast food, the best option I’ve found is Burger King’s Veggie Burger.

Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
