Why's that? Try living in Europe with a couple of preschoolers who grew up in the US. Try explaining to a 4 year old why chicken nuggets in Germany suck so badly much less the Barbecue sauce. Even though we didn't go very often, it was a much appreciated trip when we did.

The McDonald's I visited in Amsterdam marked three firsts for me: the first time anyone ever tried to charge me for ketchup, the first time anyone ever tried to charge me for using the bathroom, and the first time I ever saw someone put mayonnaise on their french fries.

As a Belgian I can't imagine people being shocked by mayo on fries. It's probably the most common combination here, apart from maybe ketchup.

It is sad because it is a part of the US movement to make the entire world identical regardless of where you go.

There is no such movement. McDonald's opens locations because they like to make money. Those locations make money because people like McDonald's.

What does that make Subway? Nearly 45,000 of those in the world.

Level 66
Dec 27, 2017
Not for long. Subway closed about 900 restaurants this year, with probably more to follow. Some estimates suggest that as many as one third of their stores are unprofitable. Subway overextended themselves pretty badly.

Subway is a franchise so it's probably easier to open one.

Easy. Have dined at establishments in 10-14 of these places. Some of them I can't remember if I went to McDonald's or not. In spite of the country's small size I'm almost surprised to not see Belgium on the list. Felt like I couldn't throw a wooden shoe in Rotterdam without hitting a McDonald's or a Burger King.

Level 86
Oct 3, 2017
Rotterdam is in the Netherlands. There are 74 McDo's in Belgium, probably because the local fast-food chain, Quick, is quite popular (it has been recently taken over by Burger King though).

For consolidation, I can say that the Netherlands is the next on the list with 245 right after Turkey.
+4
Level 89
Dec 27, 2017
Netherlands has 252 restraurants so it's just outside this list. Still for a country with "only" 17 million people it might score top 10 for the most restaurants per capita

What else would it be? The rosetta stone unlocking the secret that I'm really the big stupid dummy you all hoped I was but could never find any evidence for? If the comment was really that embarrassing I could delete it. I meant the Netherlands and I typed Belgium. I made a typo. A typographical error. An error in typed material. It happens. I've never even been to Belgium before. Why would I think that I was in a city there? I openly admitted to the mistake. I make them from time to time and have never in seriousness asserted otherwise. You girls are pathetic.

I'm sure many of you are just trolling, but the rest of you might want to look up what exactly a typo is. It's not exclusively accidental misspellings. But... go ahead, I guess.

i would say it was more of a mistake than a typo because a typo is when you mistype something and here you mistook rotterdam to be in belgium, not really a big deal just a learning process

^or every day, for you, Ferbin.

champ: look it up. It can also be mistakenly typing one word when you meant another. I'm not misusing the term. But easier to arrogantly condescend than look things up.

sergeant: I'm not making anything bad. Like I said, they're trolling, getting a kick out of stirring the pot, I immediately admitted the mistake. It's pathetic. But yes, life goes on.

Sometimes I reply the next day because I go and click on the same quiz. Sometimes I respond a couple of years later because I'm been coming to the site near every day for 10 years and eventually I'll see something. But I find that people tend to see both things about the same way.

There's a McDonald's in Berlin that looks like an old European Kaffee Haus, it's absolutely gorgeous. And, yes, mayonnaise on pommes frittes (French fries) is common throughout western Europe. In Brussels, I counted upwards of 17 different flavors of mayo available as a condiment.

I like my French Fries without any toppings so I can taste the actual fries (well good fries at least, not McDonald's). Occasionally I do add one though like when having fries at the "best" place in Amsterdam to have them. Two words: Lime mayo! Mmmhhh.

They really should... Nobody in Asia says South Korea, we always just say "Korea" to refer to the country.

Likewise, Burkina alone should be accepted for Burkina Faso, SA for South Africa, and Saudi for Saudi Arabia. After all, if "dr" is accepted for Dominican Republic, it really doesn't make any sense not to include these as well.

But JetPunk, I don't think it will ever change.

Only recently has JetPunk accepted DR for Dominican Republic and ROK and DPRK for the Koreas.
