Our Review Of McDonald’s McPlant

McPlant has taken the fast food market by storm, and after reading reviews on different forums regarding this famous, delicious and unique burger, I also decided to indulge in this flavorful vegan burger. When I received my meal, from the very first bite, I felt the distinct taste of a juicy patty mixed with fresh vegetables, and the addition of sauces like vegan sandwich, mustard, and ketchup further enhanced the taste of this classic burger. 

This burger surely did justice to its fame and price tag, and with a combination of crispy McDonald’s fries and a Coca-Cola drink, it became more satisfying and delicious. Overall, 5 out of 5 stars from me for this exceptional burger by McDonald’s UK.
