    [1998: Products] McDonalds

    I am not sure why I didnt write this earlier, neither am I sure why this was so popular throughout the country being the expensive food it was. Maybe it had to do something with the play area for kids.

    But the lines were enough to tell you how popular McDonalds had become. Now, there are apparently 9 McDonalds in Lahore, 6 in Karachi, 1 in Hyderabad and 3 in Faisalabad. I wonder why there is no McDonalds in Peshawar, or in Quetta?

    People actually used to come from other cities to Lahore to eat at McDonalds. And I still cannot forget how people used to get all dressed up to go to McDonalds. Nawaz Sharif was also a big fan of Big Macs, and it is rumoured that when he went to the US on an official trip, he asked for a Big Mac to the surprise of every security personell over there, since even they did not eat at McDs.

    When it started off in 1998, the debate used to be about how expensive it was. Many newspaper articles, which were talking about poverty used to mention the fact that 75% of the country can never think of eating a single meal at McDonalds. Now when people are being told about national stats using McDonalds as a tool, you can make a guess about how ubiquitously known it was.

          I bet people still dress up to to go McDs and KFC in Pakistan. Then again it's not an everyday type of meal for average Pakistanis. It would fall under luxury I suppose.

          In any case, McDonalds sucks, whereas KFC is quite good.

                      I thought the Big Mac would be good at Mc D's in Pakistan, but NOTHING compares to Zinger Burger at KFC.

                      And yes, I remember going to Pizza Hut in Pakistan was an occasion where one would dress up, but remember the Pizza Huts in Pakistan are not like the ones in US. They are considered "fancy" restaurants. One McD in Karachi had a big wide screen tv on the 2nd floor. I often wonder that when people see these kind of restaurants in Pakistan, they must be like wow, i can't imagine how the American ones must be.... i remember my uncle was quite disappointed in our local pizza hut and mcdonalds.

                          They're prolly not in Quetta or Peshawar because people would beat the crap out of anything American in that area, even if they do watch MTV in their homes.

                              What do you mean by dressing up ?? :-|

                              Why one should not dress up if he/she is going out ?

                              McDonalds is a public place, and one is supposed to be wearing proper dress if one is going there, same is the case with shopping Mal. It is over and above my head that what is wrong in this Generally, We Pakistanis (urban) are quite cultured we dress up for going out.

                              Now if you mean that people dress up speacially for Mcdonalds, like if they are going to parties. Then I am afraid, you got the wrong idea. All type of people go there, some go their actually for parties (birthdays) others just to hang out and watch cricket match, school college kids, and people from office during lunch hours. I dont think apart from frist group anyone comes to Mcdoanald specailly 'dressed up'

                              McDonalds in pakistan has a playland, people bring their kids. This is one of their major attraction.

                              Now if people in other part of the world look down at McDonald's, then it is not our problem. McDonalds in Pakistan offer good food and nice clean place to hang out

                              But I only like Strawberry Milkshake, nothing else
