Pakistanis Are Pissed At McDonalds For Fucking Around With Anday Wala Burgers

LEAVE ANDAY WALA BURGERS ALONE.

Anday wala burgers mean a lot more than just a meal in Pakistan.

No no, a good anday wala burger is one of our national meals, right alongside Biryani and Nehari. (And Halwa Puri and Pulao and obviously Jalebis.) You get my point.

Each city has its own special spot for these burgers. Lahore has Lasani, Karachi has Mirchili and even Islamabad has it’s very own Nagina. But one place that should not be serving these burgers seems to be getting ready to warm their buns.

McDonald’s has been heavily hinting at an anday wala burger addition to their menu.

And honestly, it’s bullshit.

Anday wala burgers are meant to be enjoyed in the comfort of your car in a parking lot or on your way to Nathia on the side of a road at a khoka with your friends. Though they may not look super fancy or sophisticated, these burgers are pretty much an everyday delicacy for all Pakistanis.

So obviously, when the fast-food giant started dropping hints about coming out with their very own anday wala burger,’ Pakistanis took it personally.

The brand even seemed to rope in social media influencers such as Ali Gul Pir and Cynthia D. Ritchie who tweeted about wanting a good anday wala burger.

Ugh.

And look, before we start attacking the brand full-on, the plan does seem like a good one. In theory, adding an anday wala burger to the menu is a pretty genius way of adding in that national and desi touch that will bring a whole new demographic of taste buds.

However, on the other hand, this huge corporate brand is coming in and taking a local dish, commercializing it and slapping a pretty price tag on it for their own profit.

It’s like revealing a national secret and then charging people an arm and a leg for it.

The chain has yet to officially release the burger and though we are sceptical about the creation, we’ll just have to stay tuned and watch the madness unfold.

Have you heard about the burger? What do you think? Into it? Let us know what you think in the comments below! Love you.
