Taco Del Mar & McDonald's Put the 'O' in Mayo"/>
It remains one of life's great injustices that not every American citizen gets to experience the exhilaration of having a load splattered on his or her face and/or in his or her mouth during his or her lifetime. Thankfully, there are a pair of fast-food chains--one with local roots, one obscenely global--with locations in Seattle which boast hot, white sauces that simulate the ejaculatory facial. Granted, neither Taco Del Mar nor McDonald's come close to the sweet stimulation of Beard Papa's, but touting the semenistic virtues of a cream puff is as obvious as saying Jimi Hendrix was a very good guitarist.
Compared to McDonald's, the amount of criticism TDM is subjected to is miniscule. Seattleites hate McDonald's almost as much as they do Starbucks. And yet, in a blind taste test, Mickey D's fries would whoop those of local fave Dick's, and the McChicken would rate highly as well if it was served at a local gastropub instead of in a yellow wrapper. By itself, the crispy chicken filet is merely good, but when slathered in hot mayo, it's a secret treat worth savoring in private. Plus it's $1.49, and times is tough.
