The creativity that went in inventing McDonald's miracle flavoured rice is so beyond my little human brain that I'd have to be high as a kite to understand the magic. But oh, the magic! The culinary geniuses at RocketNews24 cooked rice with a Big Mac, fries, chicken nuggets, sauce and coke to deliver what has to be the most delicious flavour of rice ever.
Look at the audaciousness of it all! I can't even pretend to think that there was science behind this, it's just the wonderful midnight logic of combining two awesome things in hopes that something even more awesome will come out of it (like Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby). That hope, of course, would be that the flavour of McDonald's — which permeates everything under le arc de golden, I mean, you can taste it in the coke, feel it in the napkins, see it in the play pen for god's sake — will extend itself into the flavour-absorbing nature of white rice. I believe it will and I believe it will be delicious.
Have you ever had Hainanese chicken rice? The rice is cooked with chicken stock and is transformed from a starchy glob of plain white rice to an explosively tasty treat. Have you ever had Katsudon? It's a Japanese dish that's basically a bunch of deliciousness over rice. The flavours of that "deliciousness" often leaks itself onto the rice which in turn makes everything even more delicious. You see where I'm going here? Cooking rice with McDonald's stock and then eating McDonald's deliciousness over McDonald's rice is simply inspired. McDonald's Miracle Flavoured Rice has the potential to reach the heights of a Hainan Chicken Rice and Katsudon love child. This, my friends, could be Red and Yellow Ivy.
Anyways. We're eating McDonald's Micracle Flavoured Rice this weekend and we'll definitely update you on how it all tastes. In the mean time, what do you guys think? Delicious because of the McOoze of Mickey D flavors or disgusting because the texture of everything will make it McSoggy?
