I’m sure many of us visit McDonald’s very frequently.
It’s so convenient with McDelivery, the many 24-hour outlets as well as the Drive-throughs all over the island.
But how much exactly do you know about what goes behind the preparation of your favourite McD’s meal?
Last weekend, I was invited to the Open Doors event at McDonald’s at King Albert Park together with some other bloggers!
For those who remember, McD had a period where they opened their kitchen to the public to have a little tour to know more about what goes behind the counter
Now back by popular demand – McDonald’s opens its kitchen doors to all! (for a limited period of time only!)
It is the perfect chance for you to discover the truth behind your favourite food!
The enthusiastic representatives telling us more about McD’s Open Doors!
After we all sanitized our hands, it was time to go behind the counter and find out what exactly goes on in there!
Buns, buns and more buns.
We were first brought to their storage room, as you can see it’s really spacious and far from the cluttered storage room that I was expecting.
This is to ensure proper ventilation of all food products stored there.
Spotted my favourite dip for McNuggets :)
I’m sure those studying overseas wouldn’t mind a box of Garlic Chilli mailed to them…
The giant oven where they bake ALL the buns (for all the diff types of hamburgers)
ok just kidding. haha. it’s actually a giant fridge. :P
Housing all the perishables, as you can see, pancakes and the all new turkey bacon in the upper deck!
and on the other side of the giant fridge are….
….many squashed bloggers. lol. kudos to the guy(in blue shirt) holding onto the huge dslr w the huge flash and still diligently taking pictures haha
Next stop, the bustling kitchen!
ah…such camera-ready staff! :P
With orders flowing in non-stop from the counter and from the drive-through, it gets really busy in the kitchen.
It’s really impressive how they have a proper and efficient system to keep everything in perfect order amidst all the hustle-bustle.
A stack of readily available disposable gloves - hygiene is their No.1 concern!
Patties getting cooked by a semi-automated grill.
I was glad to hear that they change their frying oil according to frying-load...
that is, how frequently they change their oil depends on how much food they actually fry
so for example - if at that particular day/time they happen to fry more items due to increased demand, they would change the oil more frequently to match up to the increased frying load, instead of just changing the oil at a fixed time/fixed interval.
Indeed, food cooked with oil which are re-used multiple times can be very detrimental to our health!
Stack ém up! Pictorial instructions for the new breakfast sets (w turkey bacon).
Pretty neat machine, to keep all the fried items warm and crispy!
Nuggets, wings, Mcchicken patties,Filet-o-Fish patties…. all systemically labelled w LED displays
All the different sauces that complete your favourite McDonald’s meal
A picture of Felicia and I in kitchen before we headed out :)
She does really good beauty products and clothings reviews on her blog! I already saw smth that i wana get after reading one of her Urban Decay entries :>
After the tour, we were treated to….
well, basically whatever we wanted! :D
Check out those huuuge containers of sauces haha!
My fav McNuggets and Mcwings!
We got to try their new Cheese Shaker Fries, i love cheese :)
Susan getting ready for her shot. hehe
And for dessert…
My first time trying the new Horlicks Mcflurry! (i remembered natlee saying that it’s yummy on twitter!)
Loved it! The best out of all the Mcflurry predecessors I feel!
haha the table next to mine, taking a picture of the pile of food they polished :P
Little treats for us in our goodie bags :)
