We tried out the world’s fanciest McDonald’s | CNBC Reports


This might not look like
a McDonald’s, but it is. Okay, maybe asking for a wine
list was a bit of a stretch, but when visiting the world’s fanciest
McDonald’s, who knows what to expect? This is McDonald’s Next, a new concept
being tested out in Hong Kong, offering everything from quinoa to
matcha sundaes served on a waffle. As many say, it’s always better to be overdressed
than underdressed. Well, I’m not taking any chances. At this McDonald’s, almost everything you’ve known
about the golden arches is thrown out the window. When in a fancy McDonald’s,
go for brioche. Carmelized onions? Truffle-flavored sauce. You can just add grilled pineapple,
crispy wood bacon, more cheese. The fries seem a little bit standard,
I would have thought they’d have like sweet potato fries or truffle fries. There is a lot of drink options. The burger, fries and salted caramel
latte add up to just under $9. For McDonald’s probably a little
high, but still good, I would say. For me, the kiosk is taking
a bit of getting used to. See this kiosk… Cancel! Ah, no don’t cancel the whole thing! It’s a bit too complex for me. No! This, I want this. Kiosks are increasingly popping up
in McDonald’s around the world. Not only do they reduce labor costs, but also customers
tend to spend a bit more when ordering on a kiosk. Since I’m getting the burger,
perhaps I should get a salad too. You have a choice between
two different lettuces. We’ll do California blend. Shredded mozzarella or shaved parmesan? Obviously, the shaved parmesan. There’s
quinoa, crispy bacon bits, let’s do pineapple. Crayfish egg mayo? Let’s give it a try. The salad cost me $11.40. After 6 o’clock, they do table service
at this McDonald’s, which means you have a number and they
come to you which is quite nice. First, it’s the soapy water, give
it a scrub, then you rinse. And then automatically, the
paper towel comes out. Whether you’re ready or not,
the experience happens. It’s very fancy. It came on a cutting board with a real fork, a real knife
and it’s like one of those hip places you go for brunch. And even the ketchup
here is delivered. This is the salad that just came. This McDonald’s even has wireless
mobile chargers and USB ports. As full as I am right now, I think
I need to see a dessert menu. Ordering one of their fanciest desserts
can only be done behind the McCafé counter. Are the cakes made onsite? Yes. Yes, they’re made onsite. Here, the coffee beans come
from different regions. It’s so proud of its coffee, it even sells its own
coffee beans to make it yourself at home. For dessert, I opt for the sweet
potato-flavored sundae waffle, and I pair it with a mochaccino,
coming to about $7. Everything is quite fancy, except
it came on a plastic tray. There’s some inconsistencies in this experience.
For example, a plastic fork with a salad, but nice utensils with the burger. So will this fancy dining experience
combat declining restaurant sales and satisfy the increasing trend toward
more health conscious eating? Will McDonald’s start more
of these around the world? I wonder if I need to leave a tip.

    The reason of the plastic cutlery on the salad is that no one actually wants to eat a salad at the shop and not what most people come for so most people have it at home or in the car ready for work or something
