In 1990, two significant things happened: I had a dinosaur-themed birthday party, and McDonald’s changed their french fry recipe. One might argue that someone who was four in 1990 couldn’t possibly remember the iconic flavour of the original McDonald’s fry, but I remember my dinosaur-themed birthday party in extreme detail, so checkmate, Aristotle.

I am a worldly woman of much class, which is why one of my favourite things about travelling is seeing what the local talent at international McDonald’s have to offer, particularly in terms of dipping sauces and McFlurry options.
I’ve dined on Cadbury McFlurries in England and dipped my nuggets in La Sauce Curry in France, but these instant noodle-flavoured “Shake Shake” fries from Hong Kong are something truly special.
There's nothing quite like McDonald's French fries straight from the fryer - they're moist-yet-crunchy, deliciously fresh tasting and almost too hot to eat. The same can't be said of older batches. To put it bluntly, they taste like cheap, soggy cardboard with some salt sprinkled on top. If you're unlucky enough to order at the wrong time, this can seriously impact your enjoyment of the meal.
Fortunately, it's not difficult to get a fresh batch of McDonald's fries every single time - and you don't need to employ wily subterfuge or menu 'hacks' to get it. Instead, just ask at the counter.
Hot chips come in many shapes and sizes. Some people prefer thick 'n' chunky steak fries. Others are more partial to the classic French fry. More still prescribe to crinkle cut (these people are weird). Whatever your chip preference, this algorithm will ensure they turn out perfectly, every time. (Micky Mouse/Amphibious Landing Craft shape not included.)
Today, McDonald's opened the doors to a new concept store in Glebe that serves nothing but French fries -- completely free of charge. The appropriately named "Fries With That" is being billed as the world's first Macca's "Fries Eatery". Customers can choose from a range of unique gourmet toppings ranging from Pesto & Parmesan to Chipotle Cheese Sauce. Here are the details.
