I finally tried McSpicy!


I’ve heard about McDonald’s McSpicy from my friends. They’re a fan of spicy anything, so I understood their excitement. As for me, spicy has always been a hit-and-miss, so I wasn’t as excited to try it…until curiosity got the better of me.

As I went home from work one random day, I thought about finally trying McSpicyΒ to find out what the craze is about.


I took shots of my order, of course, for remembrance. But one bite into the crispy and juicy chicken burger, and my past came rushing back. (No hugot, swear!)

How can something so new be so familiar? I asked myself, and then remembered that my friends mentioned that McDonald’s released this a few year ago. I couldn’t remember, but then it hit me – I’ve eaten this before. And it was my favorite before too!

The McSpicy burger had a crispy chicken patty that is juicy on the inside.


Like they advertised, it had just the right amount of spice – not too spicy to make you run for water, yet not too bland to remain unnoticed. It was topped with lettuce and special mayo – a combination that was just normal, but perfect to balance with the spicy chicken patty.


Aside from discovering (or rediscovering) that the McSpicy is really good, I was able to reaffirm that dining alone sometimes is actually good. I had a good “internal” conversation, and I was able to reflect on the events of the day.

The McSpicy burger is here for a limited time. If I hadn’t tasted this, would I have regrets? Maybe no, because I didn’t know what I was missing. But now that I do, I’d probably order it again. Scratch that, I’d really order it again. With large fries and large coke, please!

What do you think about McSpicy? Let me know in the comments!


Enjoy life. Cheers!

    Comfort food! I really love spicy food (kimchi, anyone?) but when it comes to fast food, I stay away from spicy – because my stomach is unpredictable haha. Still, I’m salivating over the McSpicy!

    I haven’t tried this but maybe one of these days. I’m not so much into spicy food as it triggers hyperacidity. Glad you enjoyed your McSpicy!

    I hope we have a version of this in Saudi Arabia. I’ll be checking when we go to Mcdo. I like that it’s not that spicy. πŸ™‚

    Hello Nina! My husband was able to try McSpicy sandwich! He liked it because he likes spicy food naman talaga. I wasn’t able to try it myself even I like spicy food naman because of my heartburn induced by pregnancy. Haha! Maybe next time na lang when all is well na. Buti naman just right lang ang spicyness nya. Ayoko rin ng sobrang anghang na wala ka na halos malalasahan sa food. Haha

    I used to not like spicy food much. But my hubby loves them and over the last few years, I’ve come to love them too. Haha! Glad to know McSpicy is back. Will order it on our next McDo binge.

    I love dining alone! Nakakapag muni-muni ako sa buhay-buhay! πŸ˜€ I also love this McSpicy! I love evrything spicy so I maybe bias. But the partner loves it too! Sana lang magstay na to sa menu nila para hindi Big ‘N Tasty yung inoorder ko.

    I had no intentions of trying this as I’m not a fan of spicy burgers. However, since they were giving out Mcspicy coupons in exchange of downloading their app last week, we had it for our dinner. Lloyd loved it, but I found it to be really spicy for my taste. It also dismantled in my hand as I bite it which was inconvenient as we watch the movie. I love McDo shake shake fries though.

    I’m not into spicy foods so I will not try this burger. πŸ™‚ But we love McDonald especially the fries. It is our go-to fastfood if we want something to eat.

    I’m Singaporean, and we’ve been having McSpicy for… as long as I can remember! How can it be only available for you for only a limited time? McSpicy has to be MCD’s best burger till date! But I wonder if it’ll taste a little different for you? I’ve tried McSpicy in China recently, and it wasn’t as spicy as what I would get in SG.

    I love Mc Spicy! When i first tasted it, ay ang sarap lang… the spicyness is nakaka-addict. But the serving was so bitin. They coul’ve made it bigger. The Zinger is also great! Parang they are just the same naman.. basta Mcdo sabi nga ng baby ko, “love ko ‘to”.. πŸ™‚

    Seriously, which one do you like better…? McSpicy or Zinger? LOL. I tried na rin the McSpicy and I thought it was okay naman. It could be bigger though. That being said, KFC’s Zinger has also undergone a marvelous transformation from what was once larger to what it is today. Both are same naman na masarap naman.
