When Burger King announced their $2.00 Fish N Crisp Burger, McDonald's responded by lowering the price of their Fillet O Fish Burger to $2.00.
I have always been a fan of the Fillet O Fish and would order the $5.00 Extra Value Meal whenever I visited McDonald's in the past. When they dropped the price of Fillet O Fish to $2.00, I was overjoyed.
Then, I would order two Fillet O Fish for $4.00 instead of spending $5.00 on the Extra Value Meal. I am not crazy about the fries and soft drink. Just that when the Fillet O Fish was priced at $3.95 each, it was kind of silly not to take the fries and soft drink for only another $1.05.
Anyway, Burger King's claim that their Fish N Crisp Burger offers better value for money with one slice of cheese, not half, and 40% more fish got me curious enough to give it a try. Yes, AK is a sucker for value for money deals.
|Poster outside the restaurant. Looks good, right?|
So, I tried.
|Hmmmm... Doesn't look quite the same.|
|Opened it up to add some ketchup. The bun felt stale.|
The piece of fish looks to be the same size as the Fillet O Fish's.

The bread is definitely stale. This was from lifting the top earlier.
|The fish is sooo salty! Why so salty?|
Staying with McDonald's Fillet O Fish.
Burger King's Fish N Crisp Burger gets a resounding "C.M.I." from AK.
1. $3.30 Fillet O Fish meal.
2. 1 for 1 Fillet O Fish.
