Re:Subway De-thrones Mickey D
I live in China and my city of Hangzhou has about 5 outlets for a city of about 1.5 million people. One outlet is (or was) owned by an American and the original by a Canadian Chinese. I sometimes go in there for the bread because China has such poor bread. It is the same exact outlet as one would find anywhere in the USA. I think a lot of Chinese like it because the food is mostly vegetables and to them is lowfat. (Personally, I think Jared is a lie and a fabrication but that is not germaine to this tale.)
McDonalds here is not that great, and to a lesser extent that KFC have tailored their food to the local taste, which means that most everything that is delicious back home they don't serve here. Even the fried pies (something McD is famous for an is good) are funky, like taro, mango and green pea. Ick.
