What I Ate: March 29, 2009 (McDonald's, Tong Soon Garden)

I was grumpy today. I had scheduled my going away get-together for this afternoon and we had to run around getting some stuff to prepare for it and I just wasn't in the mood for it since both Tina and I had some work to do in the morning. Pressed for time, we grabbed lunch from McDonald's - I got a Big Mac and a Filet-o-Fish.

Those of you who know me personally have probably heard my complaints about Filet-o-Fish sandwich making. The between the bottom bun and the fried fish patty is a slice of cheese. This cheese effectively glues the sponge bread to the fish. If placed off center, the sandwich is lopsided and cannot be corrected without destroying the bottom bun (which is spongy and relatively delicate). In the last five years, I have not had a Filet-o-Fish where the patty has been placed squarely on the bottom bun. How difficult is this task? Why can't someone just do it right for once?

While in the middle of packing in the evening, we grabbed from Chinese food to go from Tong Soon Garden.
