We had breakfast at McDonald's during a recent trip to Taupo, finding the food more or less the same as what you would expect from McDonald's anywhere in the world.
Both of our Sausage Egg McMuffins meals (NZ$6.70) were exactly like what we expected. Portion sizes were pretty much the same as what we have in Hong Kong, price around 50% higher for the sake of comparisons (rating 3 of 5).
While so many hate McDonalds, you do know exactly what you are going to get, no matter where in the world you are! This is why we like it and the quick breakfast at the Taupo McDonalds was no different.
We also visited the McCafe area of this McDonalds one evening when we felt like a dessert so we popped in to sample their coffee and sweet treats. We had a very yummy chocolate muffin (rating 4 of 5) and a decent Pecan Tart (rating 3 of 5) that went well with the nice Long Black coffee. The coffee was good but nothing special, tasting more or less the same as version in Hong Kong (rating 3.25 of 5).
Overall, we were happy with both stops at the McDonald's and McCafe, not for the good quality but for the consistency we found at the Taupo branches. They were exactly what we expected of our meal and coffee/dessert.
