In a world first, McDonald's Australia has launched a Wagyu Beef Burger featuring 100% wagyu beef patties sourced from Queensland farmers. Sounds delicious, but does it actually taste any different to a McDonald's Angus beef patty or a run-of-the-mill Quarter Pounder? We conducted a blind taste test to find out.
Earlier today, we pitted the new Wagyu beef patty against an Angus beef patty and a regular old Quarter Pounder to see if we could taste the difference. To make the test as fair as possible, we eschewed the burger buns, sauce and toppings - leaving just the ground beef to fend for itself. Click on the video above to see how the Wagyu Beef Burger fared and whether it's worth over $12.
