McDonalds Not So Bad

McDonald's is Not So Bad ???
 
Yes It's True !!!
McDonald's is not so Bad? Are you kidding? No I'm not. In fact they're pretty good. Yes, I know I might get slammed for saying this. Are you kidding or what? Or just dumb and devoid of taste? Not! I'm far from it. I have an abundance of taste, unlike the majority of Americans. Sorry, facts are facts. 
I've eaten at some of the World's Finest Restaurants, all around the World, in cities like my own, New York, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Saigon, Bangkok, Buenos Aires, Rio di Janiero, 
New Orleans, Bologna, Verona, Milan, Napoli, and-on-and-on.
I've eaten at La Coupole, Bottega del Vino, Galatoire's, Le Cirque, Peter Luger's, Pandamoneo, Minetta tavern, Totonno's, Rutt's Huts, and again, and-on-and-on ...
I know my food. And I'll tell you what, I've been eating Burgers since I was a little tike. I know my Burgers .. My dad took us to every great Burger Joint in; Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania on vacations and many a road trip throughout my childhood. Yes I know Burgers. 
As a kid, we didn't go to McDonald's all that much, my dad preferred going to other places, but I always loved McDonald's and wanted to go there more often seeing their advertisements on TV constantly. I want my Big Mac, but never ate man of them. Not until I became a teenager anyway and could go and get Burgers, Hot Dogs, Shakes, Subs and such on my own ... Back then, I really loved Big Macs, but then became enamored of The Quarter Pound with Cheese. These days I prefer the McDouble ... Believe it or not, they're quite tasty, and the price is right, coming in at about $2.00 a piece depending where you are. There is not one standardized price for McDonald's items, those most people think they are .. In a high rent district like New York City where I live, rents are high, thus Big Macs, Shakes, Fries, and all items cost a little more. The Dollar Menu is anything but anymore, should be more like the $2.00 Menu, cause most items cost just about that on this so-called Dollar Menu. Not !!!
Anyway, I'm not really complaining about that. I'm actually praising McDonald's here. Most who know me or have read my writings, might not expect me to ever praise McDonald's .. Yes I can be a snob, and by the same token not .. I'm all about the truth, being a leader, not a follower. I'm actually quite a big trend-setter. Who do you think invented the double shirt (wearing 1 Dress Shirt over another) and was one of the FIRST Ever to wear Bowling Shoes outside of a Bowling Alley (along with my buds). Yes, Me.
Some people have No Balls, and though they my love McDonald's, they keep it Secret, and don't have the balls to admit it, or any other number of things they feel others would look down upon, whether it's admitting they like McDonald's, they watch reality TV, or whatever. Followers they are. Not me, I tell it like it is. I'm not afraid to admit that I like McDonald's and that I'm a total McRib Fanatic extraordinaire.
have you been to a McDonald's lately? Some are really quite nice, with a new modern look that's comfortable and inviting. They have free Wifi and play pleasant music, which doesn't include any CRAP like RAP. Thank God for that. Thank you McDonald's. Thanks for the nice new settings, 99 Cent Coffee, $2 McDoubles, and free Wifi, and a nice place to go and chill and not get Raked-Over-The -Coals money wise, we need these days in such a sluggish economy, we need good deals, affordable eats & drinks and places to hang for just a couple bucks, McDonald's fits the bill.

STARBUCKS COFFEE TASTE LIKE PISS

WHY DOES 
STARBUCKS COFFEE TASTE LIKE PISS ???

"Why Does Starbucks Tatste Pissy" ???



Have you ever noticed it? Probably not. Starbucks Pikes Place Coffee has a pissing kind of
taste to it ..  It has pissy tasty characterisitcs to it .. It does. Its the acdity in their coffee that gives a slight twing of pee-pee .. Most people don't releive it. Their taste buds might not be very discerning. But for those people with discerning palates, they no the taste, and that's what I've always felt about their coffee, I never really liked it much .. "Why the hell go there then?" you ask .. Well, I never really liked Starbucks that much and don't normally go to one by choice, and I hardly ever do .. I have some great local independent cafes in my neighborhood of New York's Greenwich Village, so I go to these places each and everyday. However, sometimes when I'm in midtown or other neighborhood other than my own and I need to get a coffee and get on mylaptop, there's always a Satrbucks. So on the rare occasions you might find me in a Satrbucks, it's purely out of necessity .. And I can remember back to the second or third, or was it the 4th cup of Starbucks Pike Place I had, I noticed that sort of Pissy taste. I don't really care for it, and if I'm in a Starbucks, I'm there more for a seat inside, and the Wifi than for the coffee which I don't really like that much. The Coffee at the two local cafes I frequent daily are superior in taste to anything Satrbucks could ever dream of ..  I've been going to Caffe Dante on Macdougal Street in Greenwich Village for almost 30 years (Since 1985) .. Caffe Dante is the # 1 most authentic best Italian Coffee in all of New York. You can get New York's Best Espresso there, as well as a great Cappuccino or Caffe Latte ...
My other favorite cafe is a couple blocks away at Once Upon a Tart on Sullivan Street, where they make tasty muffins, cookies, and a Chocolate Pear Tart "To Die For." Here's where I drink my good ol Cup of Joe, aka American Coffee .. Once Upon a Tart serves New York's "Finest Coffee" from the towns single Best Coffee Roasters in Porto Rico Coffee Co. ... The Greenwich Village Italian Longo Family has been importing raw coffee beans and roasting them in The Village for more than 100 years, so these people know what they are doing .. And the prices are great. You can get a pound of fresh roast and ground coffee at  the Porto Rico Shop on Bleecker Street for a mere $6.99 ... I've often wondered, why the hell would anyone in their right mind buy mass produced Satrbucks Coffee at almost double the price ($12.95) when they can get a pound at Porto Rico for much less? Some people are just dumb I guess. Dumbness? This would explain why millions would pay $5.50 daily for something from Starbucks when they can get better for less.
Anyway, the serve tasty Porto Rico / Peter's Blend at Once Upon a Tart .. This coffee is sublime, in its rich tasty coffee smoothness, and not a trace of the acidity that a cup of Starbucks Coffee has .. I drink it each and every day. The Porto Rico Cofee at The Tart that is. And I just love it. It's one of New York's best. Best cups of coffee, and boy I'm lucky I don't have to settle for Starbucks. Hardly ever that is.
Basta !!!




NOTE: As of this writing (October 18, 2014) our beloved Once Upon a Tart is closed .. It closed 2 months ago after 23 years on Sullivan Street in Soho / Greenwich Village ... I've just hear some happy news ... Once Upon a Tart is scheduled to re-open on November 7, 2014. "Oh Happy Day." Please, I hope it's true. Me and its many loyal patrons. We just love the Tart and miss it dearly.


This is an Email I Received from the Owner of ONCE UPON a TART

It Reads: Good News, after 2 months closed, Once Upon a Tart will re-open November 7th ..
