Man who has eaten McDonald's in more than 30 countries reveals who does it best

Ray williamsRay WilliamsTravel show host Ray Williams has been to many McDonald’s around the world.

Ray Williams has eaten at McDonald’s in 34 countries.

The travel show host and producer, who once made headlines for croudsourcing an effort to get legendary chef Anthony Bourdain on the air, says the fast food giant is a comforting taste of home on the road.

McDonald’s restaurants in Australia and France have a reputation for being better than those in America.

Of all the McDonald’s he’s tried, Williams says Thailand does it best.

Here are a few reasons he thinks Thailand has the best McDonald’s.

1. Most sandwiches are available in double size.

“That’s four patties in some cases,” Williams said. “A double Big Mac is never a bad idea.”

24hr McD's next door to my hotel and they do DOUBLE Big Macs. Gonna be an emotionally challenging week.

2. Samurai pork burger

One of the best-known menu items in Thailand is a burger with a pork patty, teriyaki sauce, shredded lettuce, and mayonnaise.

Williams says this “burger” — which is like a cross between a McRib and a Big Mac — lives up to the hype.

Other exotic menu items include spicy chicken, served with eggs and rice.

3. The dessert menu

Like McDonald’s in France, Thailand offers a more extensive dessert menu than what Americans are used to.

Williams says the pineapple pie, which looks identical to McDonald’s classic apple pie, is his favorite.

Menu items also include a corn pie, ice cream floats, and Ovaltine drinks.

Some locations have cheesecake and brownies, too.

4. Delivery

Williams says that Thailand has mastered delivery.

You can get your Big Mac delivered 24 hours a day in some locations. The food arrives quickly — while it is still hot.

McDonald’s is attempting to expand delivery in America.

5. Ronald McDonald is different.

Outside McDonald’s locations in Thailand, Ronald McDonald clasps his hands in greeting.

“What’s not to love about Ronald welcoming you in true Buddhist fashion?” Williams said.
